Is it just me...

Postby Wing Nut » Fri Mar 30, 2012 4:24 pm

... or does anyone else find it a little tactless to offer a Japanese Zero to fly around over Hawaii?

Considering the history of Hawaii I did find it a questionable choice.

[edit]
...and it's not only you. There has been quite a bit of attention to this subject in other forums and on the Flight website.

"Questionable choice" seems to sum up MS Flight quite nicely.

The nicest thing I can think of to say.. At least Flight wasn't 'made in Japan.'

I'm glad I made the decision to not play around with this "game". I find it insulting. IMO, it's like offering New York city instead of Hawaii to fly over.....then offering to add the World Trade Center(s) for.........Insulting........ >:(


Mike....Nice on M$.....

I haven't messed around with Flight at all, and when I first read this post I thought it was a joke. Then curiosity got the better of me and I went to the site to see for myself.

Yes I find it tactless too. Wonder if it would be ok to shoot it down on December 7th?

It definitely is a bit tactless. At least MS didn't give us a Kate Torpedo Bomber or a Val Dive Bomber.

If they made those they could have made a scenario where you had to sink the US Battleships. :o

What are MS going to do next? Give us a scenario where we fly a 747 round 2001 NY?

I'm another that hasn't bothered with Flight. But seriously, I doubt MS intended to insult anyone. It's just error #619877hr33cx4i19k. It just means 'whoops!'
