    Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator and CFSII were both pretty good. CFSII was a little more advanced in the graphics and flight model areas.

    IL-2 and IL-2: Forgotten Battles for sims. I don't really have time for the full 20+minute campaign missions, but doing a short custom mission is always good: ME-262 vs Me-363, PE-8, etc is usually a good way to relieve stress.

    IL-2 Forgotten Battles is where it's at! Finest combat flight sim ever. Incredible flight model and graphics. All the aircraft guns are well modeled too. :D (Russian ShVak 20mm cannons are awesome!)

    Hmm, why is that, George? Could it be that the Alien and Predator missions were impossible?

    ;)

    I have been thinking about getting a pistol appropriate for the Aliens venue. Not one that has appeared in any film (VP70, Colt Commander), or in AvP II (MK 23, er, right), but one that would fit well in the genre.

    I'm thinking a third-gen Glock 20 with a M6 white light/laser illuminator, Trijicons, and +2 mag extensions. :D

    Surprised this isn't locked as OT yet...


    Anyways, I am waiting for Lock On: Modern Air Combat. It's by the guys that did the Flanker games and IL-2. Demo is good, you get to fly the MiG 29 and the A10.

    Geez George!!! Stop it! you're scaring me!! Now I'm afraid to buy the game.;)
    Are the weapons realistic (as realistic as an M41A pulse rifle can be)? Does it have other weapons (say a sniper rifle), or scenarios where you could use such a rifle?
    Can you LAN it?

    The weapons in AvP II are fairly realistic, IMO. The problem is that you're fighting aliens and predators and mutations thereof... so it's a little hard to compare their effectiveness in real life. You do face other humans during a couple of missions, and that's where the different ammunition types can help.

    Your pistol (H&K MK 23) and your shotgun (generic 12 ga.) have two different ammunition types that you can find. For the pistol it is standard (perhaps JHP) and armor piercing. For the shotgun you can either use buckshot or slugs. Guess which ammo types are more effective against armored humans?

    One thing you don't want to do is hit an alien at close range with a shotgun slug. They pop, you melt...

    There's no sniper rifle, but you do get some pretty kick butt automatic weapons.

    What is the rest of the story

    the real title for the Alien VS Predator 2?

    There are a bunch on Ebay cheap, but which one?
    Gold Edition?
    Primal?

    Or what?
