So I caved and bought used copies of both Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader and Crimson Skies.
I like Crimson Skies the best so far, because I just can't seem to get the controls for Rogue Squadron down... I never see any TIEs (my tv's too small), I get disoriented, radar seems useless so far, and there's no 'flying' feel to the game.
But I'm sure I'll get better with it, and grow to like it... This game is too pretty to have shallow gameplay I hope
