Considering what it's doing, it's a marvel it's coming out on consoles at all.

How so? The company making this game aren't very experienced, and the graphics don't look amazing either. Odds are the simulation elements won't be nearly as good as the upcoming IL-Sturmovik console exclusive game.

I guess we'll see though.

the screens do look good when they're so small but once at full resolution, they really are quite dissappointing... I hope for the best but miracles don't excist...

Did anyone else play the prequel to this? Heroes of the Pacific? It was quite fun, if a bit repetitive. The plane handling was a bit arcade-like but good. I remember being impressed over how good the cloud simulations were too, that's like the second most important factor in any flight-sim, realistic clouds!
