PUBLISHED: 19:13 28 January 2003 | UPDATED: 13:44 10 October 2012

A flight simulator containing all the explosive action one would expect in a theater of war. "The war in Europe" is the scenario Microsoft have based their latest combat simulator around, and with a whole new host of innovations including new levels of scenery, this release is going to provide levels of entertainment not previously seen in a flight simulation.

 "The war in Europe" is the scenario Microsoft have based their latest combat simulator around, and with a whole new host of innovations including new levels of scenery, this release is going to provide levels of entertainment not previously seen in a flight simulation. When demonstrated at a local flying club recently, those pilots that had previously been sceptical about "simulation games" soon found themselves fighting for a turn at the controls! Microsoft has cleverly employed new features into this simulation giving the user the ultimate in combat experience at all levels. Combat Flight Simulator 3 boasts performance, realism and detail taking flight simulation entertainment to new levels.

With each new release, Microsoft has improved user menu screens and Combat Flight Simulator 3 is no exception. Novice users will find making choices and setting options intuitive and simple, with the emphasis clearly on getting players flying quickly. Be warned however, jumping into combat in an unfamiliar aircraft, will likely result in a downward spiral and an untimely end to your flying career. Pilots do have the option of bailing out (single seat fighters only) and until they activate their parachute will find the ground approaching fast!
