Re: Age of flight sims is back?
You mean the Age of CFS is back? Flight Sims never left--so long as Microsoft continues their Flight Simulator line, there'll be flight sims. Combat Flight Sims have been dead for a while--and I'll be glad to have some back for some nail-biting dogfights and possibly the revival of the joystick.

Deducing from the screenshots, I'm not sure at all if this will be Call of duty in skies or a simulator...

It is pretty, though.

Looks awesome, but as said the question is crap-cade or realistic.

Oddly enough, the first thought that came into my head when looking at the pictures was 'Unreal Tournament 3 with Planes'. Seems I'm not the only one.

Re: Age of flight sims is back?
Not a flight sim.  A flight related game...like Blazing Angels.  Good fast fun but not a sim.  If you want flight sims Lock On and IL-2 are the defacto simulations.

I might add that I think its cool that the Rafael is getting so much press :)

Lock-On's the best free modern flight sim I've ever played. :yes:

I have already read about this game in other flight sim forums, and yes, it looks like it won't be a flight sim but just a flight-related game like Ace Combat.

But speaking of the return of combat flight simulators, there are some scheduled for release: Jet Thunder for the Falklands/Malvinas War, Fighter Ops which will recreate the career of an Air Force pilot from training to operativeness, Storm of War (Il-2's sequel), Knights of the Sky (WW1 flight sim), Black Shark (based on Lock On, will focus on the Ka-52 helicopter).

What is wrong with Combat Flight Simulator 2: Pacafic Theater?

I think that for the hardcore sims category, Falcon 4 Allied Force is the best sim available now (but probably I don't consider Lock On the best because... err... I got low FPS with it, and I never tried it with the new graphic card :nervous:).
The Strike Fighters/Wings over Vietnam/Wings over Europe/Wings over Israel series is also quite good, but it's far less complex compared to F4 and LOMAC ("less complex" does not mean "Ace Combat like", it means that flight dynamic and weapons loadout are correct, simply it doesn't simulate each cockpit button like F4 and LOMAC, and thus is preferable for newbies).
For WW2, the best is without any doubt Il-2 1946, especially after I discovered the mod which makes almost all airplanes flyable. Also the old Fighter Squadron - Screamin' Demons Over Europe is quite good, I discovered it after hip63 posted here a link to his FS-SDOE forum.
For WW1... well... the last one I played was Red Baron 2 :nervous:
For civilian flight, I think X-Plane is superior to Flight Simulator (I haven't tried X-Plane 9 yet, but I will do that soon), especially because, since I'm studying aerospace engineering, I like the idea of an airplane editor included in the package :P

FYI call of duty series is briliant, so i hope this is gonna be freespace on a planet with a COD4 storyline lookalike with pwnage aerial combat :)

By all accounts from what I've read CFS2 was unfinished, buggy multiplayer, and inaccurate flight modeling sort of coalesce into an average product.  CFS3 was worse apparently.  Many speak down about those two products although CFS2 is looked on my favourably than CFS3.  Neither have good flight modeling from my limited experience with them.

I get the feeling this will just be an Ace Combat rehash.
