A New Appreciation for OFF

Recommended Posts

Some of you may remenber I have a coworker who was asking me about flight sims

He had a Mac and an XBox 360

 

Well he's got it and has be regaling me with his daily exploits

It's cool to have someone to bat the breeze with but sad cause I really can't help him

 

You see in 4 weeks he's gone from Ace Commander to Hawx and now Heroes

Single Player Campaign consists of 5 Ground Attack Missions, then 5 Air/Ground Missions, then 5 Air to Air Missions etc

You only get to advance if you complete all 5 missions/set successfully

I haven't been able to tell him but that seems so monotonous and boring

Maybe it's designed for On-line play and there're some redeming qualities there

 

Made me realize how lucky we are with OFF and it's Dynamic Campaign

Since I started in P1, I've really concentrated on 3 planes, Se5, DVII, and N.28

And yet after 3 1/2 years it just doesn't get boring!

Each campaigni's different and full of varied challenges

Great Job Devs good.gif

Anybody ??????

 

No need to shout I hear ya Unc ! I could be wrong but wasn't it just a dual boot with mac and windows so discerning mac users could have the opportunity to at last experience spectacular windows based titles such as OFF ?

I hear ya Duce - my kids play all manner of PS3 games (Gods of War III is the latest) and I just don't get the artificial levels/health bars/find the key/etc. approach that all these games seem to...um..."feature".

 

I play OFF for the historical fidelity and for the thrills - but in that order - so I cannot wrap my head around the console experience. :no:

Ditto!

And it gets worse! He was explaining to me today how he had 3 mid air collisions yesterday

In the same scenario, against the same plane, in the same manuever mega_shok.gif

.Well guess the bright side is if he's happy now, he's gonna be extatic when I figure out how to get him to fly OFF

 

Well, the new Mac O/S 10 allows you to install Windows as well, as a Dual Boot

Cool! thanks Al, Catch, Widow!

I'll check into it
