View Full Version : OT Janes Attack Squadron, anyone?

Anyone ever visit or revisit that one? The Bomber stuff is really pretty dramatic. Torpedo bombing as well. I'm surprised it didn't get a little more attention.

The first Janes Fighters was pretty good. I cut my "flying-teeth" on it, so to speak.

On the other hand Janes Attack Squadron was a total waste of my money.

Maybe if I never would have flown the original Janes Fighters, I might like Attack Squadron more. The graphics, flight models, interface, and all around immersion factor of JAS were very poor compared to the first.

IMHO, Janes Attack Squadron was just as bad as CFS3. Maybe worse.

Janes Fighters, EAW, CFS2, and original Il-2 Sturmovik were the best. Much fun !

Of course, we now have the best WW2 flight sim.

I havent played it for a long time, but I definitly thought it had charm. I did feel like an unfinished product though.

It has something that Il2 dont have. Possibility to engage and defend a whole bomber squadron with people in all gunners position in 4-engine bombers.

Oh! You bring me back some great memories. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif EAW was an excellent simulation and I had alot of fun playing that. I think I flew it online for about three years. It was much more fun to play than Janes: WW2 Fighters who I thought would out-class EAW. WW2 Fighters comes in second place. CFS2 was like CFS and later on CFS3 a huge disapointment to me. The "feeling" in the sim was zero and the graphs was pretty annoying in my opinion. Played that sim five times tops then I gave to a friend of mine. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Like stated above, JAS was a waste of money http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

only the sounds were above average, but the damagemodelling was poor, flightmodelling average and so on.
The graphics were pretty poor aswell and for some odd reason it stuttered like hell on even the lowest settings while my comp was way above recommended systemspecs..

EAW was absolutely one of the best flightsims i've ever bought together with IL2 of course..
I never could get my hands on WWII Fighters..

JAS was similar in it's Damagemodels to Fighter Squadron Screaming Demons Over Europe.
