  • Summary: The usefulness of any combat system is a weapon. Flanker has a wide variety of air to air and air to ground missile and bomb systems which have realistic behavior and power. Using Russian satellite imagery Flanker provides photo-realistic terrain. The perfect flight dynamics, new 3D sound system, and accurate damage modeling offers players a true combat experience.

  1. The current king of hard-core flight sims has just ascended the throne.
  2. Despite rough edges, Flanker 2.0 is the best hardcore sim on the market. [Feb 2000, p.119]
  3. The game exudes a pride in the aircraft that is palpable even to the uninitiated gamer. Just observing the aircraft in flight, especially at high altitude with contrails streaming, is enough to evoke admiration for what the developers have achieved.
  4. This program is a simulation in the truest sense of the word, and offers few crutches to make up for those that don't like to take their entertainment very seriously...The grade may be steep, but for the combat-sim faithful, Flanker 2.0 is a work not to be missed.
  5. While this game has a lot going for it, it's dry presentation and lack of atmosphere might turn others off. If you're just going for technical excellence, Flanker 2.0 won't dissapoint. If, however, you're going for the overall FEEL of a flight sim experience, you might be better off going with "Falcon" or "Mig Alley."
  6. To sum up my feelings about Flanker 2.0, consider this. "Flanker 1" has been on my hard drive for getting on for 4 years. I doubt very much whether Flanker 2.0 will remain on my system for 4 months.
  7. It isn't the perfect game, and the anal attention to detail may reduce the appeal it has to the general game playing populous.
