Totally with you on this. Actually, I’ve been playing more Cliffs because it feel so much more realistic… The sense of flying, the photo realistic graphics and far superior AI. With Cliffs I actually feel like I’m fighting a person, not a super human AI bot that can out fly me no matter what planes we’re in and where bomber gunners shoot me down from 2 miles out. I have to fly with invulnerable checked which does not do much to promote realism. There are some inherent flaw’s with my L2 that I believe will never go away, the overly twitchy flight controls and poor AI I believe are here to stay. They can add as many planes and maps as they want but I guess it’s too hard / too expensive to fix some of the fundamental issues with the game ... overly twitchy flight controls and poor ai simulation. However, I will keep supporting until someone else comes out with a better product. I am really hoping Microsoft gets back into the combat flight Sim business!
