I was moved to write this review due to the extremely negative, and, I believe, uninformed, review from 21 March 2005 above. I am not connected to Third Wire in any way. I am a flight sim user and prefer the Ubisoft Oleg Maddox designs above most other flight sims. I took to WINGS OVER VIETNAM immediately because of the enormous attention to detail in this design. If you want an idea of how hard it was to bomb targets in Hanoi and Haiphong, give this design a try. If you want to understand why our pilots had such a hard time shooting down North Vietnamese MiGs, give this design a try. If you expect to annihilate targets with impunity, or rack up huge scores of shot down aircraft, this item is not for you. The graphics are decidedly not impoverished or crude. The handling of overcast, clouds, and monsoon conditions is splendid. The depiction of flak and SAMs is unimpeachable. The modeling of the cockpits is very convincing, including panicky MiG calls, the cool informative tactical commentary from the controllers offshore on USN ships, and the screech and howl of various warning devices. The modeling of the MiGs is positively excellent. Usually you will only see a grey blur in the distance, but, if you manage to get close enough, you will feel like you have a real tiger by the tail, and all the detail is there (I once was hesitant about firing on a MiG because, from the angle at which I was approaching, it looked American, but, at close range, the red national markings were visible on the wings, and I gave him cannon. This kind of experience is what sets the great designs apart from the mediocre ones.). In sum, this is an excellent simulator and history teacher. I recommend it without reservations. By the way, a superb flyable MiG-17, -19, AND -21 add-on is going to be available from some mod makers---see the Third Wire website.
