I saw this game a Chucky Cheese years ago, and I looked it up and bought it soon after. I have known how FRIKIN AWESOME it is for years now, and I still like playing through it occasionally. Does anyone else have this game besides me? And if you don't, you can get it on Amazon/ebay for under 10 bucks.

Is that the one for Xbox? I remember playing it for 10 minutes, and it was pretty fun I suppose.

Ten bucks eh? I'll think about it. Does it have multiplayer?

3 bucks at one of my gaming stores. :)

Yes, it's for the X-Box, basically it takes place in the first half of the century; stuff's hit the fan and the USA is a land of a dozen or so small countries. People tyr to make out a living among sky pirates and mad scientists.

The controls really neat (it's make a good zero-g space fighter) and the multiplayer supports up to 4 people on an xbox (donno what it's like for Live).

FUn stuff, very much work 3 or 10 bucks.

No no peeps, I mean the ORIGINAL one. The PC one, where you can design your own planes and it's so much more awesome. XBOX SUCKS!!!

Change in situation. Though I might still get it, my OS/everythingaboutmyfrickincomputer pwns it, which means that given the weird way computers work, the game may run really badly on my computer.

I'll download the demo and check.

The guys that made this game are making a new game called dark void. It can be summed up as gears of war+jetpacks.

I actually played the demo for it at comic-con. It's basically that, although somewhat steampunk. ish.

personally, i couldn't decide whether or not i liked the game. it was nice visuals, but boring gameplay. also, controls for flying were clunky as all hell.

Yeah, not realistic at all. But I DO love the subject of aviation so much, so I just really like it for some reason. You can't really get the game unless you play the whole thing, not just the demo.

I only played the Xbox version, I loved that tiny little helicopter you could get...

Final boss was too easy though and I sucked at that game.

Desert fox? Just FYI, the Xbox is a SEQUEL to the PC one. Not the same game.

The autogyro is awesome, yeah, but my favorite is definitely the Brigand. Good agility, offense, and max weight. I also like the lumbering Balmoral Bomber, if the Xbox version has that.
