Flight Ace is the third in the series of Ace collections, following directly on from Space Ace and Karate Ace, and boasts a respectable collection of the more outstanding flight simulators so far.

Top of the bill is Tomahawk. Pilot your AH-64 Apache through a barren landscape, with only a small outcrop of trees or a mini range of mountains here and there to guide you. The brilliant, though not a simulator as such. ATF makes its compilation debut, and of course, what collection of flight simulators would be complete without, ACE? Spitfire 40 gives you the chance to fly an F-114/A Stealth Bomber through war torn Iraq (Really? - JD) and Heathrow Traffic Control, though not actually a flight simulator, puts you in the seat of one of those funny little men who sit in front of a screen watching a line go round and round going 'blip-blip' all the time.

An ace collection with an ace title and Ace is on it. If you like flight sims, you'll love this.
