Booo !! than, Booo !!

I dont play much of the games. M pretty choosy when it comes to playing games n I dont realy like playing games, there r only few types of games for which I make exceptions. There was a time when I would find time to play AOE even during the days of my examinations but now, if some body gives AOE to me, even for free I ll through it back on his face. I just dnt like it any more n I dnt knw why it just started to irritate me. I too herd RON is same as AOE but the period of game play moves ahead thab of AOE's to a modern world where u can make nukes, jets etc ... But now I dnt think i wana play it any longer cause of its AOE mode.

The best military game out there ppl is Commandoes 3. If ur into airforce play Ace Comabt 4 n up coming 5.
I dont usualy play all these games I my self like. Just drop into them when my younger bro is playin.
My favorite games are advanture games like; Monkey Island series, Gabrial Knight, Black Mirror. I dont play advanture games with 1st view person mode but I still liked PostMartom & Dracula.
So if u have any good advanture game in which all u have to do is point n click please tell.

Last time I played Flight Sim on PC it sucked. Ace Combat I like, becaue its fast. U go in with ur wing men n sqdn leader take their command n follow. Shoot dwn boogies n any other target that comes ur way. When going back u can manualy land the AC aswell as Take off. GUI is cool too n the mission video in the end is also quite good. Its like some one has been shooting the action from the ground as well as in the air. Besides u get all the new jets in the world to fly.

Now I havent realy played new PC Air Comabat n Sim games. May be if u tell me whats in them, I ll buy them n play.

HAve u played Ace Combat4 n Leathal Skies 2?

These flight sims aren't so good without a good joystick. I don't like playing with mouse/keyboard.

Not just any joystick you need HOTAS in order to get a real kick out of the type of flightsims I play.The two best HOTAS systems out there right now are Thrustmaster's Cougar and SAITEK's X-40.I use the X-40.
Sabre once again don't talk to me about Ace Combat(I have all from 1-4) and have played lethal skies as well.These games don't even come close to simlights such as Novalogic's F-22 then how can they be compared with fighter study sims?The best I can caal em is that they are souped up versions of After Burner(anybody who owned a Sega Genesis/MegadriveII would remember playing those)

Re: PC GAMES...(Defence/Military related)

Thats why they suck umair. They need joy sticks, otherwise ur fingers will be spread all over the Key board n Mouse. Thts the reason I play Arcade Sim AirForce games on PS2. Atleast it has a joystick.

Any ways it was long time ago when I played Flight Sim on PC. I think it was 1999. Dnt knw how improved they r now. Can u post some screen shots of these games. Meanwhile I ll go search for AceCombat 5 screen shots. Than decide ur self.

Ace Combat 5 without a doubt have the best graphics out there on the market, but the game play is too arcade inspired(Ever seen a F-4 carrys 30 AA missile? or after two missile hits a A-10 still won't go down?) All air engagement in the game is WVR, but still ridiculously short ranged.(Must be within 2000m to lock on).

If you are a serious air combat fan, I recommend Lock-On. It is one of the hottest game in 2002. Don't let the year fool you, this game's graphic is one of the most detailed and smooth on PC. Here is a couple of screenshots.

Su-39


Su-25


A-10A


Flanker Escort

Well there r flaws in it. The developers too recoginsed it when Northrop Grumman & LockHeedMartin company's played the game them selves n told them whats wrong. The games is developed by the co-oporatation of Lockheed n Grumman. I dont knw why doesnt ur A-10 go down in one shot. Probably cause u r firing on it or ur Jet is not stable. The only Jet that r hard to blow r SU-30 of Enemies. They get hit once, they run off to the base, get them selves fixed n come back.
But its still fun to play.

Lock-On seems good. The back ground doesnt look so good compared to AceCombat Series but Fighter Jet's GUI looks pretty good. Thnx I will try tht out.

Meanwhile here r more AC5 ScreenShots.

Following r MiG21s





Dnt knw what Jet this is



F/A-22:

SABRE u'll need a pretty heavy system to play LOMAC.
The terraine does seem pixellated in the screen shots but the graphics beat any flight sim out there wether on pc or consoles.
Oh and get a joystick.LOMAC ain't for keybordies IMHO.
BTW I don't go for graphics.For me the benchmark has always been the level of realism.(Guess that's a side effect of spending all my childhood vacations at airbases in company of fighter jocks )
BTW that plane is the Northrop Grumman YF-23 Blackwidow.Beaten in USAF's next gen fighter competition by the Lockheed Boeing YF-22.
Though some people suugest that it was the better of the two.

Re: PC GAMES...(Defence/Military related)

Hmm. Graphics n backdrops r not as good as AceCobmat but r still good n enjoyable Umair. I like its graphic n i think its a game worth playin. But there is a problem. I can buy the Remote Control but I doubt tht I ll find this game in the market. Its a 2 yr old. I ll have to search 4 it in Rambow Centre Karachi but it would be a mess for both me n the shop keepers I know. Anyways I ll try.
Abt the System. I think tht would also be a proble. I ve P4, 40GB hardisk (10MB under bad sector tht is yet to be fixed). RAM is 120 but the main problem is Graphic Card. It sucks. Its builtin with the mother board n it some times doesnt support even the games my P2 Celeron used to do. But I ll still try it out. What have I got to lose just 30 rupees.
