IGN: Rise of Flight Review

It goes without saying that this game is for hardcore simmers and it doesn't do much to lower the barrier of entry for newcomers. With that said, Rise of Flight has, hands down, some of the best flight modeling and graphics of any sim IGN has played. Given the lack of good flight sims, that alone is more than enough to justify its presence on their hard drive. But as impressive as the overall visuals and flying are, the campaign system and plane roster just feel more than a little anemic. When compared to the wide range of content in games like IL-2 Sturmovik or Fighter Ace 3.5, it's hard to feel that Rise of Flight is holding back a bit too much, especially for forty bucks.
