Here are my initial thoughts after playing the first mission:
* The cockpits VP needs to be made a separate download. The cockpits are awful viewed from the inside, and you get env map reflections all over the screen.
* The Earth backdrop looks very nice.
* The Avenger II effects look nasty. I didn't like the "lightning trail" effect in the Earth Defense demo and I don't like it here either. I would have preferred something closer to the FSPort mediavps version. The Maxim sound needs to go as well, and the energy consumption is lousy for a starter gun.
* Now I'm reminded why I never fly the Ulysses if I have a choice.
Other than that, the first mission is well done. Maybe a little hectic for a first mission, but pretty good.
*goes to play some more*
EDIT: The second mission is awfully short, and awfully simple. There also appear to be two Earths in the mission. Which one is supposed to be the moon?
