Having used so many different kinds of military aircraft over the decade or so I’ve been using flight simulators seriously, I felt it would be a nice change to maybe get into something a bit more dynamic such as the old school World War II aircraft. They were what you would consider to be the first leanings we had towards the incredible array of fighters that we have today, and are more than capable of giving us the kind of inspiration we need to really see where military aviation started.
This remake of the famous Mustang Aces is a modification I had a lot of time for prior to release, and after using it for many hours I can safely say it’s up there with some of the most enjoyable FS2004 add-ons I think I’ve ever used!
It’s got a huge attention to detail, which really gives you all the help that you need to get immersed into the atmosphere and the style of the aircraft itself. This will help you really see how things are going, and how you are beginning to look in terms of the style and the nature of the aircraft; it’s a fair bit different from the super bombers that most of us would be used to flying.
Aside from the detail and the authenticity, though, it was impressive to see just how easily the North American Aviation Corp were able to implement a lot of the changes between modern aircraft and more classic numbers like this package with ease.
Thanks to the improvement in FS technology this mod was able to more or less grab my attention right away, giving you a nice idea of what it would be like to fly one of these things for real. It uses all of the tricks in the book to give you a fully working P-51D whilst helping you to see just how capable these aircraft were. I used to look at the older aircraft out there from the Second World War and find it strange that people were willing to fly those rickety old death-traps.
A few hours in FS2004 and a fine bit of education later, though, and it was very easy to see just how easy it is to manage a hard flight in one of these aircraft. It captures that nimble, accurate nature of the original aircraft (much to my surprise) and I actually found it a bit more calming to fly than some of the modern aircraft I’ve been more used to. Without a whole stack of buttons and extras to work my way through, I could concentrate on the flying and the actual enjoyment of using such a unique aircraft style.
One thing I did find, however, was that the package does great justice with FS2004. You might be expecting something a bit stripped down and average if you are used to FSX, but this does a fantastic job of keeping up with the times and delivering something truly awesome.
