The aircraft models themselves however are in stark contrast to the landscapes and are beautifully and realistically rendered for your plane spotting pleasure and there are many types of craft available/unlockable/available for a few pennies for download from Xbox Live.
So where does all this leave us? So should PS3 owners feel aggrieved? If you’re a fan of the series and happen to own a 360 then go right ahead and dive in, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed so obviously if you are a big fan and don’t own one then yes, you’re missing out. However, if you’re relatively new to the series I suggest you make sure a few of your mates have bought it and get online with them and you’ll have a blast. If the single player campaign does grab you then the missions are varied and numerous but in my opinion over long and ultimately lifeless. With so many games to choose from at the moment I suspect you’d really have to get turned on by this sort of thing to want to spend full price on it.
