If you are a flight sim fan heres a few new and coming games you might want to look out for.

(If you are a flight sims fan you are going to be excited for next year.)

Tom clancy's Hawx 2

If you are want to fly in a wide range of modern jets, from the russian Su-47 berkut to the american f22 raptor, then you might want to try hawx 2. A new air to ground attack system has been created, use a c- 130 hercules  or a uav for ground attack missions. Do aerial refueling, bombing runs, or the main reason you play, dog fights. See who can realy play and who are just cry babes. Comes out September 7th, if you pre order you might get exclusive items (different depending on where you buy). comes out for pc , xbox, wii, and ps3.

Microsoft Flight

The classic flight sim is back......well coming back. Pretty much nothing has been shown yet except for the bad trailer, but loving all the old microsoft flight simulator i am hoping this will be just as fun. The release date is said to be some time next year ( could be longer).

Rise of flight

Heres a special flight sim. If you like ww1 aircraft or just want to try a unique flight sim try this game out.Try the royal airforce's Sopwith Camel or red barron's Fokker Dr.I. Havnt played it yet, but seems pretty cool. There is a 14 day demo if you would like to try it, planing to try it out later.

Ace combat: Assault horizon

Ace combat series is coming back next year. Been a few years since they made one for the console, but from the gameplay trailer it seems worth the wait. The developers seem to have raised the bar for future flight sims, having created much more tactical and engaging dog fights. Hoping to see more news on this game in the coming months.

Also the company aerosoft is releasing a few more expansions to flight simulator x. Havnt tried any of their games, but was thinking of trying the f16 expansion.

I have never been a big fan of Flight Sims... I prefer the real thing... Though I do like the Ace combat games...

well flight sims give you the fake feeling that you can fly a jet. also some give you basic knowledge of flying.

I'm looking forward to HAWX 2.  I liked t he demo of the 1st one, but many reviews said the full game had some problems and wore out its welcome.  Seems like for the 2nd one they've gone back and ironed out the wrinkles.

WTF, HAWX ain't a flight simulator. It's an arcade flight game...
