Looking and searching for a good game.

Post by rbos86 »

This is one place to ask if you are looking for a game, but have no idea of titles for the game...

Ask, maybe someone can answer. Write the question below.

So, I'm looking for a good flight and combat -sim which takes place in The Great War (1914-1918).

There once was a game, Red Baron, released in the early 1990s.
I liked that game, played it over and over again. When I finished a career, I started another career, swapping the force I was flying for - England, France, Germany. I didn't care.
I'm a gamer from the Netherlands, in the first world war The Netherlands didn't choose a side to fight on, we stayed neutral. That's why England or Germany, or whatever side to fight on, doesn't matter to me.

Back to my question:
I have a Steam -account, and I don't know a title of a modern combat flight -sim which takes place above the trenches of the horrifying Great War.
Can anybody out here suggest a title?

Not a bad simulator War Thunder. Personally, I prefer fantasy or historical games. Games like World of Tanks or War Thunder are not my priority, but they are good and fun for millions of other players.

Oh gosh I remember playing Red Baron! Yes, that was surely over 20 years ago. I wish I had a recommendation for a newer equivalent

1C Game Studios have made a number of combat flight sims. I play a lot of IL-2 Sturmovik which is one of their WW2 games, however it also has an expansion called Flying Circus which is set in WW1. There is also Rise of Flight which is a few years older, but is set exclusively in WW1.

1C's games are expensive but I consider them to be worth the price when bought on sale. Game mechanics such as the flight model and damage model are excellent, and the games feature both single and multiplayer, with campaigns provided. Additionally there is a community made tool for creating long running campaigns with front lines that shift over the course of the war.

Thanks for the info, good to read!

But I actually need a good WWI sim in the air. Like Red Baron. It was awesome, learned about the early aces as well.
By the way, I did get some answer in the meanwhile.
I typed "Dogfight" in the search bar that Steam uses, and got a list of a lkot of games that have something to do with the subject.

I'll wait until a developer of games can hit the right snare, and make a good game.
