Description

I recommend this game WITH EXTREME RESERVATIONS. This pack comes with three games: Red Baron Classic, Red Baron 3d and Red Baron 3d multiplayer (which I've never booted up.)
If you're buying this for classic, the game seems to work fine. Both Classic and 3d do not come with a hotkey list, as near as I can tell these are direct ports and the originals would've had physical copies. However the hotkeys are available online here http://www.sierrahelp.com/Documents/Manuals/Red_Baron_-_Manual.pdf
for classic and here

for 3d.
Classic also has no onboard map feature, it used paper maps shipped with the disk which I fortunately (?) still have. If you don't have the maps they are in the game files and can be printed.
If you're here for 3d, the good news is the game still works, but is REALLY buggy. I remember it from my childhood and for a long time was one of my favorite games, unfortunately I don't know if it still lives up to my memories. I had two big problems with it:
1) It kept 'forgetting' my joystick. Starting it up I'd immediately go to 'Fly Now' to check to see if the joystick was still supported. If it wasn't responding, I'd have to right click, go to 'calibrate,' then 'advanced' and select my preferred device. Its trivial but annoying.
2) Campaign files kept getting corrupted. When this happened, clicking on 'Campaign' at the main menu would cause the game to crash to desktop. This was fixed by going into the Campaign folder and deleting all EXCEPT the 'campgnXX.dat' files. Game works fine afterwards and campaign data is retained.
I bring this all up because although I didn't like this game as much as I remember, my brother still loves it. Those 60+ hours you see there? That's all him, so the game still has its appeal and if someone really wants to play it and is having difficulty running it, I hope this review helps (and I'm running a modern computer on Windows 10, by the way.)
I have a tough time recommending it to anyone other than those who remember it, if you want a new WW1 flight game, check out Rise of Flight. But if you REALLY want to play it again (and it still has one of the best campaign modes I can think of in a flight simulator) check it out. But just be aware that it may take some tweaking to get it to work.
