Wow. I really don't like CFS3 at all. You are forced to choose a pilot with set characteristics first. The intro looks like a cheesy Playstation game or something. I've tried flying a few of the planes, and the best I can tell, the P-51D is a fragile little thing that stalls in 30-40 degree banks and can't easily recover airspeed even in nose down attitude. The Bf-109G is faster in a turn and .50 caliber bullets have no effect on it in this game. The P-47 is slower in a turn than a real life PA-140 (Piper Cherokee) and creaks like it's falling apart as soon as it enters any turn. Forget dogfighting. Point the nose up at 250 knots and you stall. No Immelmans or loops can be performed in it.
If anyone wants to buy this game from me, I only paid $10 and it was a real waste of money to me. It's totally unrealistic, unless the Cessna I fly would have been a hot fighter compared to a Mustang.
