Anyone read what amounts to a rather scathing review of PF by hexis.net at netwings.com?
Bit hurtful but mostly true I'm afraid.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Some of it true... overall it`s not helping, only hurting. Knowing that level of support this sim has, i wouldn`t worry about it too much.

Some of it was true - but it was also rather an unbalanced negative view IMHO.
Where the reviewer really stirred up anger was not in the content but the rating scheme used.
Only when challenged about the score did he state that he'd used FB:Aces as a benchmark - assigning it a "generous" 5/10 (for some reason the best of breed is deemed merely average). In his opinion then PF was not up to the standard of FB:Aces - hence the score of 4/10.

That the published review made no mention of this peculiar scoring regime was its main flaw. Any casual reader seeing that would assume that the rated item was garbage.

Otherwise criticism of this review has already raged through this forum and simhq. To his credit the author did show up to explain his position.

Salute

Just like to point out for sake of completness its netwings.org not netwings.com and it was not our review just commented on but most who browse this forum or simhq already know that :-)
