I don't recall if the demo is on PSN or not, but I played IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey on the 360 and I thought it was pretty fun. It was kinda like Blazing Angels, but better. The game comes out on September 15.

HAWX made me sick. Such a generic, uninspired game. Blazing Angels was pretty pathetic aswell. I haven't been able to check out IL-2 Sturmovik yet, but I would say thats your best bet until Namco decides to give us a freaking Ace Combat game.

To be honest, I don't think anything could even touch the Ace Combat series. My number one game I'd like to play on the 360 is Ace Combat 6.

When I first read the title of this thread my mind immediately went to Super Smash Bros and fighting on Fox Mcloud's jet. Then I realized what you meant.:lol:

idk HAWX is a good game but i cant get past the fact that when you fly low to the ground everything is pixelated! It just looks bad only random buildings show up and most are flat. but all of the features are great and the variety of planes is great. this is one of the best flight games ive played despite the graphics.

There are no good flight games on the PS3, excluding Warhawk, which is a shooter.
