The game runs almost flawlessly in every aspect! I tested:
- Installation - OK
- Instant action - OK
- Single Mission - OK
- Campaign - OK
- Options - OK
- Every aircraft - OK
The game installs and runs just fine. Every aspect of it runs ok. I did not experience any specific CTDs (it crashed only once, but I couldn't recreate it, so I think it was something random) or significant flaws.
What does not
- The radar has erratic behaviour! When set to anything else than "easy" it will not display anything! When set to easy, it will display targets, but it does not work as it is supposed to, nor as in when running the game in windows: the scan isn't correct, the targets do not blink, any other mode exept search do not work and furthermore, I wasn't able to fire a single one radar guided missile, as the radar does not seem to lock. Also, the RWR isn't working, although you may hear the warning tone indicating there's a lock on you.
- Another problem is that with graphics at maximum, an annoying stutter may appear over airport and populated areas. This does not happen if you set graphics to medium and below....
Also, the runway, ramp and taxiway textures on the airports seem flashing. I believe this has something to do with the direct 3D engine that the game uses, but I did not try to solve it, as it is totally playable.
I'm sure that this does not have to do with my PC, as I have a very above the requirments of the game machine (AMD Athlon 64 x2 @ 5200+, 3GB Ram, nVidia GeForce 8600GT 512)
What was not tested
I changed the rating because I found out that the radar and RWR do not work as supposed to.
