There are not alot of options compared to other games. It's one full screen monitor only although it does have Track-IR support. The lack of multiple monitors is annoying until you consider that everyone else has to master the same view system you have, and view along with 3D situational awareness is everything. Learning curve is steep. Control/view setup pretty complicated. Flight models pretty realistic except that they eliminate pesky details like ground level wind so you can land on whatever runway is handy and get back into the air. The game is pretty much about dogfighting and other realism issues are back seat issues. There are comparisons to IL2 out there, and it's better in some ways and worse in others.
It's a pretty exclusive game. One main server for everyone. I think they only have about 6000 players from all over the world with typically hundreds on at one time US evenings. The company, HiTech Creations seems to like it that way.
If you want to try it it's a smallish download and 2 weeks free after which it's $15 a month I think.
Speaking of downloads, I am going to try out WT but I have to do the download somewhere other than home. I'm on a broadband card and it will push my cap.

I've never played any sort of video games before and don't know the first thing about them.
I fly on line occasionally with on-line controllers all over the world with an organization called VATSIM.
Keeps my chops up.

I lost my Commercial certificate and my instrument rating over three years ago after my heart attack and subsequent surgery and I can't fly anymore.
I needed an outlet really bad.

I play online games to keep me from launching into expensive projects like that. You combined the two pastimes and will be stuck with basket weaving (oh, wait, how much is bamboo?) when you run out of money to feed your brain.
