Intro: Feel the excitement of flying the Su-25T “Frogfoot” attack jet and the TF-51D “Mustang” in the free-to-play Digital Combat Simulator World! DCS World is a vehicle combat simulation game created by an inspired development team. DCS World uses a powerful engine that delivers realistic gameplay.
Review: DCS World is not your happy, clappy fun time game. This is a super serious flight simulator that it as high-end gaming as you will ever see or feel. But I’ve played a lot of flight sims and they are all much the same thing each time. DCS World is the best of the lot of them and now they have VR support you can feel as if you really are inside the plane! The graphics are the most amazing you will ever see and the in world physics and plane replication is nothing short of perfect.
The feeling as you bank your plane left or right inside VR is nothing short of mind blowing. You start to feel your whole body turn and you would almost swear you could feel the gravity hit you. While the controls (keyboard and mouse only) are complicated you could always just play free flight to experience it. That way you just need to use the arrow keys to get about.
Verdict: If you love a good flight sim, DCS World is not only worth downloading, it is worth buying a VR system just to experience it! You really could learn all you need to know about flying a plane with this game. But in VR you really can feel as if you are flying it.
