    Hopefully this game will provide some healthy competition for AEP/PF, especially for offline players.

    The old arcade 1942 was more realistic than CFS3.

    Interesting observation. I can't help wondering what it's got to do with this title, which was developed from the original Rowans Battle of Britain.

    Microshaft has had nothing whatsoever to do with its development; if the original, but admittedly very buggy title was anything to go by, this could be very good indeed.

    According to a gamespot news release at http://www.gamespot.com/news/2004/11...e_6112498.html
    this is an updated re-release of the original Battle of Britain by Rowan (also developers of Flying Corp and MiG Alley). It looks like the graphics were upgraded for sure, remains to be seen what has been done regarding FM/DM. The original Rowan's BoB had some very good aspects, even some 1C would do well to incorporate (i.e., tactical use of clouds to shake an AI pursuer).

    Shockwave Productions has acquired source code for several landmark sims, like B-17 II The Mighty Eighth, whose marketability was severely impacted when Hasbro bought out Microprose and decided to rush to completion without multiplayer support. It was reported "in November, 2004, Shockwave Productions Inc. made an announcement that they had obtained a 5 year contract through Atari and have obtained the source code to "B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty Eighth". The project is being called "B-17 Flying Fortress: The Legend Returns", which will include improvements and expansion to the existing code, as well as activating the multiplayer functions to fly in real-time with your friends.", however, I've seen no recent news on this. Too bad, gameplay was very good, multiplayer was sorely needed along with updated graphics.

    Screenies were decent.

    I liked the Vonage ad better with the guy and his rocket. Hilarious.
