Exhibit - Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 3
It was a typical Sydney Spring morning - blue skies and fresh - not too warm - as I made my way to the Westin Hotel in Sydney's central business district to meet Scott Lee from Microsoft.
First we watched the Intro cinematics.

The movie is based on in-game graphics which were then enhanced with CGI and a rousing soundtrack. You see a P-40 pilot on his way to a tank- busting mission.
His mate gets whacked by a Messerschmidt. He exacts swift revenge then proceeds to take out the bridge. The last shot is of a German experimental fighter of "flying wing" design departing the area at great speed..
So that gives you a little flavour of the sim. (Laughter).
MiGMan: I like the focus on ground attack.
Scott Lee: Now I'll give you a demo of the actual sim.
