May I recommend this game to every GG out there. It's relatively low-spec, so most of your guys computers should be able to run it. And with a 65.5mb download, ANYONE can play this game, even if they have dialup. But, that's NOT all! IT'S FREE!!!!!!
Plus, even with Skype on, it's relatively devoid of any lag whatsoever.
Me and AK just got done playing a game in the H2H mode, which is free ( Save for the Massively-Online Arena ) and fun! Do you have a favorite WWII Aircraft? This game has just about all of them. Heck, there's even tanks in the game! So, if any of you lads want to stroll on in to the game with a T34, me and my Tiger I will give you a warm welcome.

Years ago (starting about 1993), these online flight sims were my obsession. Back then, with connect charges and hourly rates I paid as high as $12/hour to play!
Now, the games are VASTLY better and cost pennies. Aces High, if you fly in the online arena, costs just $15 a month. If you fly a lot, that is very cheap.
But, as Dab says, if you play H2H, it is free. You can have up to 8 people playing H2H with one of them hosting.
We flew Zekes (Japanese Zeros) and Spitfires tonight. The flight models are very cool. All the planes have different flight characteristics and the simulation is very real (all except stick feel, but not much you can do about that in a flight sim).
I logged literally thousands of hours playing this game and its predecessors online. Dab, of course, shoots me right down.
I really think I'm too old and slow and vision too dim to be very good at this anymore, but I'd still enjoy flying if some of you decide to give it a try.
