Falcon 4: Allied Force

*Loads game*
Woohoo! This should be fun.
*Loads first training mission*
ooh buttons....
*Starts clicking all kinds of buttons in cockpit*
*Engine dies*
Oops, that was the fuel switch.
*Turns back up*
Uhh...Fuel...Please...Comeon...Need thrust...
*Frantic clicking everything trying to get engine started*
AAAHHH!!!!*BOOOOM*

Looks like steep learning curve may be an understatement, I haven't even been able to figure out how to tell how much fuel I have yet. Doesn't help that I can't alt+tab to the manual and back.

Ok, I'm slowly getting the hang of the radar. Landings were really questionable because the manual says to land at 130 knots...That slow and I always crash, I think the tail is hitting the ground. 150-160 is much better.

And I finally located the fuel guage...

130 Knots seems to be a little slow to me for a fighter jet landing, is the radar good on it then?

The radar seems pretty detailed. I obviously can't compare it to real life, but I'd imagine it has all the proper modes and everything. It's just a pain in the butt to use...Which is probably accurate.

Yeah, I remember when I bought Carrier Strike Fighter a long long time ago. The manual was so complex it took me a week to read and understand it and ages just to get it to fly and bomb stuff....takes ages to complete a mussion like this.
