Any GOOD flight simulations for Dreamcast?

title says it all.

basically, i want something a little on the "arcade" side rather than the "sim" side if you know what i mean. i just want something with nice graphics and tight controls.

so far, the two i've seen just don't look all that compelling (aero wings and something from konami)...

i just wanna blow stuff up...is that too much to ask?

They cancelled Propeller Arena

Aerowings
Air Force Delta
Iron Aces
Macross M3
Starlancer

Those pretty much are the flyng games for DC. Starlancer is more space.

looks like air force delta fits the bill...and iron aces looks pretty cool too.

what about driving games...i was thinking about metropolis street racing or possibly getting a bleem for my copy of GT2.

Crazy Taxi is fun.
Daytona USA
F1 World Grand Prix
Metropolis Street Racer
Sega Gt
Test Drive

Bleem for GT2 is a good idea also.

IMHO the best driving game for DC is Test Drive LeMans. Very good control, excellent night/weather effects, good opponent AI. Sega GT is not too bad and Crazy Taxi can be very addicting although it isn't exactly a driving sim.

As for flight sims - I was not impressed with either Air Force Delta or Iron Aces. AFD was OK - rent it first, you may like it - but Iron Aces was a sluggish bomb of a game.

Check out gamespot.com or ign.com for reviews.

Really, it's not. It's quite mediocre. You'd be better spent getting MSR, F355, or Sega GT or even Vanishing Point.

odd, most reviews make it sound like fun in a more "arcade" sort of way. these days i usually just want to pick something up and play. thanks for the tip. is it worth $10?

if i already have a PS1, is GT2 bleemcast worth picking up? looks like it improves the graphics somewhat while retaining that glorious game engine and spot on control.

test drive is fun but your right more arcade like. its worth $10 (where?)
sega gt and f355 are more realistic imo.
if u have a ps1 bleemcast gt2 is not worth it. the graphics improved somewhat, its only worth it if you dont have a playstation

[edit]how yeah, how do you qoute properly? with the indent intalic and bold? i get it wrong every time

it happened to be available for instore pickup near me, but if you have to have it shipped, it's closer to $15.

i usually just hit to "quote" button on the other person's post...
