    Is there anything like a flight simulation game, space flight simulation game or a lunar landing game on the Nintendo DS? Or GBA?

    Jet Impulse has fighter planes (Japan only). Other than that I don't know.

    I remember playing Freedom Wings on DS, excellent and enjoyable flight game.
    For the rest, that Starfox game?

    Both aren't that much of a sim though...

    You could try IL-2 Sturmovic. It's a WW2 game where you're in a plane and shoot enemy planes down etc.

    Yeah, it's definitely a simulation. It has a certain something, but you really have to be in the right mood for that game to appreciate it, I think. It almost felt like a flight sim/RPG to me. A bit slow going.

    If you really need more space, buy a 4/8/16 GB microSD, it's quite cheap and well worth the money!

    All a matter of taste, I personally can't stand games with too much customization and simulation. I can't play those games for even 10 minutes, too boring.
    But I love soccer games and can easily play those for hours after each other. While other people hate soccer games.

    It was alright, although I don't think I could stand the pixelation for any great length of time.

    Tested all the games. Freedom Wings i feel quite lost what i am playing with. Will find out more later.
    And Top Gun seems like very hard.
    The Time Ace should be the best but it is punishment hard >.< even i cant pass the first mission.

    p/s I am not good in flight games [​IMG] But I like it [​IMG]

    Try Starfox Command. Pretty fun flight game. (even though I may be wrong considering this is the only flight game I've played not in an arcade.
