Description: Aces High III takes the art and science of vintage WW1 and WW2 air combat and sets it in a high intensity online multiplayer environment. Hundreds of players simultaneously battle it out against each other in massive aerial dogfights and bomber raids. High fidelity flight simulation is the heart of Aces High III but it doesn’t end there. A war rages on the ground and at sea. Engage enemy armour in tank combat. Protect your fleet as a gunner or make a torpedo run in a PT boat. Lead an assault in an amphibious vehicle. With over 100 warbirds, vehicles, and boats available, you have access to a vast virtual arsenal.

Take part in special events such as historical scenarios where famous battles are recreated and reimagined or try your hand at air racing at treetop level against skilled competitors. In the air, on land, and at sea, the battle rages 24 hours a day with participants from around the world. Take our free two-week trial or play in any of our free arenas and find out why Aces High III is the online game for you.

Review: It is very clear from the off that Aces High III is not made for VR at all. While you can play it in VR the nausea is incredibly high no matter what vehicle you are in so do be warned. Then there is something even more annoying and that is the price. You might be thinking that this is a free to try game at least so you can get a flavour of it. But that is not the case so unless you are willing to fork out 14.99 per month (you do get one month for free), but you will need to enter payment details. Then the final nail in the coffin of this game is the online play. There is a small, but continuous community of players that play this game online and while that might sound good for anyone new to the game it is a pure annoyance as you will get killed time and time again because you are playing against people who have been playing this game for years! If you aks me this just isn’t worth the cost per month for the VR version, but maybe the 2D screen version is better, but that is not what I am reviewing here.
