Applelinks Previews Fly! II
10:15 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Kirk Hiner of Applelinks has posted a preview of Terminal Reality's upcoming title Fly! II. For those unfamiliar with the game, Fly! II is a realistic flight simulator that features slick graphics, detailed control panels and a host of aircraft to choose from, including the Bell 407 helicopter and the ever-popular Cessna Skyhawk.


Hiner comments on the amazing graphics of Fly! II:

Cockpits, scenery and such have all been bumped up to inspiring levels...the landscapes are starting to look more realistic than real life, but then you don't really get much detail when flying at 23,000 feet anyway.
He also notes the complexity of the controls:
There's nothing more daunting than receiving a beta disk of a flight sim that prides itself on the realistic complexity of its physics engine, but not receiving a manual for said game. Just getting off the ground proves impossible without the proper training, and as nice as the cockpits look, it's the amber waves of grain and purple mountains' majesty we really want to see...
For the full preview, be sure to check out Hiner's article. Macsoft, who is handling the publishing for the Mac version of Fly! II, currently has this title listed for a Fall 2001 release.
