Frankly, I agree with Profanicus. It's incredibly small-minded to say that a flight sim with its detail in different places misses the one and only mark.
Falcon 4 and Battle of Britain 2 are the two flight sims I play which have the most soul, and certainly, the worlds they build are amazing. DCS doesn't do anything similar. At the same time, though, no other sim has given me the same feeling of sitting in a real machine with all its quirks as DCS has. That's a kind of heart too, even if it's often disdained in this thread.
