Flying Nightmares

Post by 3DOKid » Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:16 am

Has anyone actually ever got anywhere with this foresaken game? It really is rubbish.

Got my Flight Stick? (Check!)
Got my 3DO? (Check!)
Insert game! (Check!)

and then failure.

Is it good, if I give it another hour?

If you started playing it in 1995, you should just now be getting the hang of it. :lol:

I think in the 3DO Game Secrets book they point out that an actual Harrier pilot had to show the team developing the game that it was indeed possible to land or something to that effect. (I'm too lazy to go grab my book) Gives you an idea of how comlex the game is.

Corrected :)

he probably had more fun with the money he made from that contract, than I did in 15 years of ownership of the cursed game. I don't want to really be a jumpjet pilot (well, maybe 25 years ago I did) but not now. Not in my house. I just want to kill things in 3D.

It's just dumb. It's worse than making a bad game. A game so good, nobody (except real fighter pilots) can play it. Durrr? 'xcuse me?

About as far from a "casual" audience as you can get. :lol:

The Harrier is just about THE most difficult aircraft to fly EVER. Only the cream of the RAF are able to fly them.
...which means, if you're able to play this game, TECHNICALLY you're up there with the best of them.
