IMG Reviews Fly! II
11:46 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

At long last MacSoft has shipped Fly! II, one of the legacy titles they picked up in their deal with GodGames to take over Mac publishing for that now-defunct company, and hardcore flight-sim junkies now have a new fleet of aircraft to take for a spin. Our detailed review of this game discusses what Terminal Reality managed to add to their series of realistic flight sims with this sequel, and what changes they made which might not "fly" well with fans of the series.

Here's an excerpt:

Gameplay in Fly! II is nearly identical to its predecessors. The cockpits are still clickable and conform nearly identical to their real-world counterparts. In Fly! II, the user is presented with additional aircraft: the Pilatus PC-12, a high-end business turboprop, the Bell 407, an entry-level helicopter, and as an added bonus, an old WWI Stearman biplane. The old aircraft have new names and new paint jobs, and a few even come in multiple varieties (water-landing versions, for instance).

In addition, Fly! II now models limited amounts of damage. Though youíll never see the extensiveness of military simulators like A-10 Cuba! and Falcon 4.0, reasonable support for damage is a welcome addition. Various components of your aircraft can take damage, and although itís not displayed visually, a helpful dialog box can inform you how much damage each part of your plane has taken and also allows you to instantly repair your aircraft.

For more details about the game as well as screen shots, follow the link to the complete review. If you have already bought and tried this game, be sure to add your own thoughts via our User Reviews feature.
