Flight Ace

Flight Ace is the third in the series of Ace collections, following directly on from Space Ace and Karate Ace, and boasts a respectable collection of the more outstanding flight simulators so far.

Top of the bill is Tomahawk. Pilot your AH-64 Apache through a barren landscape, with only a small outcrop of trees or a mini range of mountains here and there to guide you. The brilliant, though not a simulator as such. ATF makes its compilation debut, and of course, what collection of flight simulators would be complete without, ACE? Spitfire 40 gives you the chance to fly an F-114/A Stealth Bomber through war torn Iraq (Really? - JD) and Heathrow Traffic Control, though not actually a flight simulator, puts you in the seat of one of those funny little men who sit in front of a screen watching a line go round and round going 'blip-blip' all the time.

An ace collection with an ace title and Ace is on it. If you like flight sims, you'll love this.

Overall Summary

Pretty good summary of the genre. Six games, some good, some seriously phwurr.
