Having been play il-2 FB now for a couple of months and thinks its the best thing since dairylea came in tubs!! Received a copy(the real thing)of cfs3 for a gift the other day and thought to myself"it'll be good to have a sim for the western front".How wrong that thought was! Its crap(hope thats not too strong a word)and felt sorry for the friend whod parted with 30 pounds for it.
No matter how many times I went back to give it another chance it was still crap.I think that if you hadnt seen FB then you might ,a remote possibility,think its ok.If however you have been playinf FB then its no fun at all.
Could believe how flat the experiance was with no sensation of speed or altitude at all.As for the weaponry,well,think Lara Crofts Uzis made a better sound!
Think I'll give it to my nephew for xmas,he might like it,he is 31/2!!!

I was one of those people who bought CFS3, based on what I took to be an unbiased view from someone who should have known better.

I did not have any problems with frame rates and graphics. In fact it ran prety well out of the box so I was thus able to just concentrate on the game without any major tweaking.

The FM sucks, the DM sucks just as badly and the graphics are dated and flat.

Of course this is just my opinion but stronge enough for me to snap my CFS3 CD in half about two or three montsh after buying it.

I was one of those die hard CFS guys who waited with baited breath for CFS3 to come out.....
I know former squadmates who still fly it and swear that IL2 is too arcadish for thier tastes....go figure. I have yet to put it back on my HD.

I am just glad I didn't buy it.

I tried a rip version first because I already had a feeling it was going to suck since the screens looked awfull and the first 2 CFS games were horse poop on a stick.

EAW was king untill IL2 came.

Deleted the CFS3 rip version of my HD, got a copy of IL2 FB from UbiSoft NL as a gift for plugging the original IL2 to the public after it was released and never even smelled into the direction of CFS3 ever since or anything related to it.

Both are descent, cfs3 has realistic roll rates stick pressure damage models, but the graphics arent that great at all, il2 is definatly better in the graphics dept and nothing matchs il2s cannon gunnery and its 3d modeled cockpits. Both are fun like all flightsims. You cant really compair terrain because il2fb has a small square maps which compaired to cfs3s full world terrain. I still play both along with fs2004, any pilot knows the only computer games that have a realistic feel of flight is xplane and fs2004

Dude CFS3 sucks

"cfs3 has realistic ... stick pressure"

Again untrue. Using Microsofts own FFB joystick, when you pull back on the stick the stick actually pushes itself in that direction too. So if you pull the stick back you have to push forward on it to keep it in place (top of pyramid effect)

That game is just so screwed up it's got to be the worst flight sim ever released.

It's so bad they didn't even bother to put it on their gaming zone (pathetic). Go to the MSN gaming zone, they have CFS1 and CFS2, but no CFS3! Of course they have FS2004 so you can fly around and try to collide with people but not CFS3!

CFS3 is quite simply an abomination of a game. A sim that makes one question whether they can ever do a combat flight sim. I love Microsoft but they really lost their mojo on this one (CFS3)

Ray, how come you don't like CFS3?

CFS3 is horrible, that is all I can say. Once I played IL2(yes, the original) I couldn't ever force myself to fly it or any of the other craptastic fubar simulators. I agree there is no sense of control or feeling of flight involved in that game. The sad fact is so many people buy it because it is Microsoft and they don't even give this game a second look(Il2 and FB), because there is no brand recongnition. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I hope that people start to come around, and take a chance and they will see the "light". If Bill Gates came to my door and offered me a copy of any of those atrocities, I would whoop him within an inch of his life, then pee on his bloodied hulk then melt the case to his forehead. Yes I have a little anger problem http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif LMAO

RedDeth, the plane in your sig looks awesome, just thought I'd say so. That's a 190 dressed up similar to a Mustang, no?

I was admiring that 190D's paint in RedDeth's sig the other day myself.

BTW, I didn't buy CFS3.

I hate the cockpits in CFS3. Some planes have "ok" pits but most dont. I dont see why the people who made CFS3 couldnt spend a little more time on the pitshttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif . And the graphics. It looks good when you are flying real close to the ground but it takes too many FPS away. The water needs to be worked on too.

Just my opinions. Dont want to start a flame war http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There are many talented people improving CFS3, but the game is such a total peice of crap that their quest is unreachable.
Hopefully Microsoft has learned from this huge mistake to make CFS4 a decent combat flight sim, but I DOUBT IT.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifseem to remember an arcade sim called afterburner that was more fun to fly.even the menu system in fb has a solid feel to them,unlike cfs3.

If a better sim than FB/IL2 (or maybe as good as) comes along, with the same care and attention I`ll purchase it.
But as long as they don`t learn from IL2 first they`ll always be as crap as CFS3.
