According to Metacritic, one of the best combat flight simulator games is "Falcon 4.0: Allied Force." The game is heralded as one of the most realistic and complex flight simulators ever made.
Using complex physics modeling that simulates actual flight performance, "Falcon 4.0" offers a detailed simulation of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. The original game was released in 1998 but programming glitches marred the gameplay, though the design was ahead of its time. The game's complexity, however, attracted a significant fan community, leading to an updated release years later. Bug-free and loaded with new content, "Falcon 4.0: Allied Force" allows players to experience combat in a rich game world spanning millions of digital miles.
