DescriptionCombat Flight Simulator 3 is the 3rd version of the popular WW2 simulators from Microsoft. This version is focused specifically on the European theater of operations with mission areas like Germany, UK, and France.
This version has major enhancements over previous ones mainly in detailed graphics and improved dynamic missions. Graphics features include realistic cloud banks you can fly in and out of, losing yourself or an enemy aircraft and incredibly detailed ground detail and scenery visible at normal flight altitudes. Explosions, plane damage and smoke effects are also greatly improved over previous versions.
Playing the game allows for dynamic missions that vary as you progress through the game. Based on the outcome of your mission - S&D, reconnaissance, air superiority, etc. you earn prestige points and change the outcome of the war. Eighteen different planes (P-51, P-47, Spits, Me 109, Fw 190, Ju 88, Typhoon IB, etc.) with multiple variants each allows for some specialized playing. Online and multiplayer options are available with specific multiplayer missions included as well.
