I have the original Falcon4.0 and it´s hard,or,to quote MS CFS3,as real as it gets.Just check the brick to manual.But,I haven´t spend too much with it,probably as much I did with Lomac.

My brother often played Falcon 3.0 until he couldn't see streight. I think he got his first job just so he could buy a Thrustmaster joystick. I played it until I got bored, which was usually about 5 minutes. I purchased Falcon 4.0 when it came out, foolishly thinking that I might like it because it was so new and seemingly different from the previous non-3D release. After a week of fooling with it I shipped it and the tome/manual off to my brother...

That'll teach me!

Make sure you'll download some good 3rd party stuff for it. I don't have any links, search for it on the net. Falcon 4.0 is far more realistic then LOMAC and the graphics are not that bad actually. It fly's alot better also and has a nicer interface. Good luck with your flying! I'm glad I bought the game when it came out so, I got the beefy manual with it.

Hehe the graphics are something like 5 years old! thats why they 'suck'

Its not about the graphics apparantly its a really good game.

Not that I have tried it.

Great sim and highly authentic in terms of pilot workload, from what I have read.

Next generation fighters like the F22 and the Typhoon have as one of their basic criteria in development a much decreased pilot workload!

Great sim.

i just purchased it about a week ago, and didnt like it. but hey..thats because i havent put any seat time into it...same with lomac at first. im sure ill settle in at some point to see what its all about. i dont mind the graphics. i play lomac full LOW detail...so both look the same to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

IIRC, since this IS a new version of 4.0.. there is NOT anything to add-on to it. this is an "out the box" working environment. nothing close to the old patch to patch to patched version of 4.0

I'm just not into the "heavy pilot workload" thing. When the decreased pilot workload is modelled in some of the newer rides (i.e. F-22) then I'll give them another "legit" shot. I have them all and fooled around with them sporadically, but never got into any of them the way I even did CFS1.

the type of pilot workload I'm interested in is flying a high-torque, single-engined, 1200+ HP fighter with no rudder trim. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Yep, thats why I'm here as well, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif it is hard but it is the most immersive flight sim I've ever played in single player

What Megile and Platypus_1.JaVA said. I have the big old binder with mine. And patches out the ying-yang. I haven't had it on the HD since AEP. It was only patched to 1.o8US the last time I played. Still like it but Warbirds rule!!!...

If you compare...

IL2 is a game..
F4FA is a simulation...

Grafic sucks? Landscape texture is years in front of il2.....

What it realy has is something il2 completely lacks... a real huge dynamic campaign.. nothing you can compare with what we have in il2..
il2 offline is like a kick in the nuts...
falcon offline is like candy..

Depends on where you're standing I guess

I've never felt like I got kicked in the nuts, but haven't played a full offline career since FB was released. If that's what it's like then I will never play one again!

Falcon 4.0: Allied Force is an awesome sim. You can do things we only dream of in FB. The only downside is the graphics aren't quite as good, but the gameplay offline and dynamic campaign are way better than any flight sim out there now. (Provided you like flying F-16s) It's 10x better than LOMAC.
