What does that quote mean? What's the difference between 'expert mode' and 'assistance off?'
I haven't tried the demo, but I was looking forward to a Strike Commander-esque flight action game. This whole thing about forcing a 'cinematic' view in what is supposedly the most realistic flight model is totally backward. What's wrong with a padlock view if we need to see enemies and missiles, or at least a no-cockpit first person padlock view?
I was going to try the demo this weekend, but from what I've heard, it sounds like it isn't even worth the bandwidth. I would get no joy at all playing from a 'cinematic' view. The only hope would be if the easy flight mode is still enjoyable enough. I don't want a sim necessarily, but I want it to at least feel more or less like I'm flying an airplane.
