Seen this one in the shop today and I wonder how good is. I heard that Janes WW2 is way better than this one. I just wonder hoow it compares.What are its strengths& weaknesses.Is worth buying (29 euros)?
Of course , I can read some reviews from magazines , but I don't trust them anymore. If is to believe them , I would never bought IL2 almost 3 years ago , and probably I will be richer with 49 euros due to the fact that I havee bought a 3/4 game called ... errrr , I will not say the name here. Is a jet game anyway.
Any takers?

I have never played it, but I have heard nothing but bad things. I would recommend WW2 Fighters though. With the 3rd party mods out there, it can still be a good game.

same with me. Just wonder how ppl who played it will compare with CFS2 for example.
I would very much like to have JWW2 but is hard too find it nowaday.I have never played Jane's WW2 , yet I heard only good things about it.

JAS has a few things going for it. The menu music is tops, for sure.

Reflections off distant aircraft is excellent. If FB did this, you'd see fewer icons-games online.

It doesn't look great, but its a nice game to play with. If its on the bargain rack, go for it.

Imagine your worst nightmare...
Now, think on something even scarrier... now look even deeper in the dark shadow of terror...
under all that is JAS looking at you....

Well,29 euros is not quite the top of the bargain deal sort of speak. If you think that games like IL2/FB were sold for about 40 euros , then I will think twice http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I enjoyed it a lot when I first got it, if you have a force feed back stick, controlling the gunners in it is very good at releving stress, its fun but its not fb.

It was a giagantic POS!

I tried flying it twice. Completely and utterly useless.

I'd love to see this! Should propose this as part of BoB

I like janes wwii fighters but the second one "attack squadron" some other company was just horable in my opinion the planes didnt even resemble a p51 or p38.

The history of JAS probably runs longer than any other sim. The potential for what would have something great died when "Jane's Information Group" pulled its name from EA as soon as the contract had expired. The team at Looking Glass that were working on the project were fired, and work stopped for about two years. Xicat later secured the use of the "Jane's" name, and tried to hire a team to finish the job. Mad Doc's (Hmmmm . . .) software were contracted, and tried to hire as many as possible from the original project, but by then the graphics were outdated, and many lines of code were missing from the game. A patch corrected some very silly issues, like the rudder pedals turning upside down when the slightest pressure was applied. Politics pretty much murdered JAS.

Sad.
