Black Shark - Flight Sim
Black Shark is an immersive sim and in that way reminds me of sims I used to play on DOS years ago including one online WW II aerial combat game. My wife will come in the room and ask me a question and I don’t hear a word because I am flying a helicopter. The inside of the ship looks great and is easy to switch from the three provided. The outside view is hard to move around and and keeps reverting to the rear view. I like to take an outside zoomed out view of my copter from various angles and watch her fly for awhile. But the weapons and interior view are good and easy to manipulate, move around and zoom, using the track pad on my Macbook. The controls work well but it is hard for me to get used to the foot pedals in conjunction with turning but I am starting to get the hang of it and it is fun to try. I’ve been playing this on iPad and iPhone where you manipulate the device to fly and it feels slightly different. I enjoy playing on the computer a little more because I can use the keyboard for control and I feel that offers a bit more in the fine tuning department than the devices and like I said I am an old dos game guy. I should say that I am not comparing this game to the old DOS games except that for me those old sims had an immersive quality that I used to feel that this sim has also. This game is a modern sim. If your looking for realism, don’t mind flying cross country in real time with some, but not too much, distance between targets, find that if you screw up you crash, etc….then you’ll enjoy it and play. If you like an FPS and nothing else, I like those too, with action around every corner, lots of blood, and unrealistic powerups you might try one of the developers free flight sims to get a taste before buying. I look forward to updates, the updates are significant, and new missions so please keep tham coming.
not worth spending money or time on this game
Very disappointed! There is no Tutorial, it only takes you from mission to mission to unlock the game, you may not use a joystick.Graphics are ok, but the helicopter does not fly realistically at all!Waste of money!
