Remember flying a long campaign in Aces of the pacific, I was an ace many times over and I was flying around Like i'm all that and a bag of chips, No AI pilot is gonna get me , then one mission I end

Aces of the Pacific. Now that there was a game. I agree with Joker. Somebody needs to update that puppy. The campaign mode was awesome. You could fly in all three branches of the US military and

Thinking back, I believe that Battle of Britain: Their Finest Hour might have mixed dynamic with static missions in the campaign. There was this one mission where you had to take off in the middle of a bombing raid, similar to the one Jim recalls building for RB. Fiendishly difficult.

The LucasArts flight-sims designed by Larry Holland and his team were quite ahead of their time, and I'm including the Star Wars sims. How I'd love to play something like those games today.

Loved xwing! Tie fighter was amazing too.. Imagine how cool in todays graphics.. Anyone get hooked on the wing commander series including when Mark Hammil and former porn star Ginger lynne were incorporated into the newer games!

Wing Commander I and II were the catalyst for my bad grades my sophomore year of college! I did play WC3 and 4 as well, though in WC3 I opted to hook up with Flint in lieu of Ginger. It's good to be Blair. :rofl:

WC4 was probably my favorite, though. Great storyline and conflicted loyalties, though the "choose your own adventure" finale after the final fight was kind of cheesy.

ha ha the slave trade I forgot about that. There was one mission I kept getting destroyed over and over , because of just too many pirates. I found out if you got into the slave trade the pirates would leave you alone and I was able to complete the job! Lot's of cool things in that game..
