First let me say that bad reviews of this game are usually for the reasons below.
Common reasons people give this game bad reviews:
1) They did not switch settings to real so they could not barrel role, or even turn well for that matter.
2) Over G is a flight simulator, not an action game. It is not like Ace Combat, which so many people compare it too. It is a Simulator, therefore it is realistic.
3) They did not play the game long enough to learn the tricks or even unlock planes for that matter. It takes time and practice to get the all the planes, learn to doge missiles, land on carriers, etc.
What is good about the game is everything but one feature, and that is multiplayer. My only concern with multiplayer is that there are not that many gametypes, or Arena maps. Online play is excellent however.
There are many different planes that you can unlock, up to 38 planes along with different paint jobs for some of the planes (F-16 Thunderbirds.) You can fly planes like the F-1 to the modern day F-22. And Russian aircrafts like the Su-33/27 and Migs.
The graphics are excellent considering how big the maps and levels are. Examples of what I mean by graphics are the planes themselves, reflections off of the planes (like the sun.) Vapor trails when you turn, and how water sprays behind you when you fly at low altitudes over the ocean.
The physics and realistic aspect game are the best I have ever seen. They are so well done in fact, you are able to perform stunts exactly like real Air Force Pilots can do.
The game is hard on expert and h*ll mode. I spent days on a few of the missions in h*ll mode, and it kept me busy. The online community is excellent and extremely nice, I have not met one person I have not gotten along with.
There are many, many more great features about this game! I will post about a board I have recently dedicated to helping new members, giving experienced Over G players a place to go and join squads, schedule games, etc. It is also dedicated to all the Men and Women who are in the Air Force and currently at war. You can post any pictures and videos of the Air Force on the specified threads. You can enter at the link located at the bottom of the post.
