    Has anyone out there in cyberland know of or hear that EA Games is re-releasing it's late 90's Computer Sim Janes WW2 Fighters? All in All, I thought it was one of the best Flight sims of the time and included a lot of realistic Physical characteristics of the P-51, P-47, P-38, ME-109, FW-190 and ME-262.

    Is anyone still playing this sim?

    Just askin!

    You might want to ask this question in the "Avaiation Gaming" section. I know I yearn for the days of "Hellcats Over the Pacific,".:(

    Agreed. Great game. IL2 is a great series, longer lived than Janes.

    I think Janes just bailed from the whole scene. I don't think they sold as many as they wanted to. Also had one for the US Air Force. Pretty good games.

    Yes, great game; still play it all the time (at least once a week; I prefer the Axis missions).

    I also have the even-older Fighters Anthology from the early '90's, which includes Navy Fighters and ATF Gold. And I actually like WWII Fighters better than MS's Combat Flight Simulator 3, which is set in similar circumstamces.
