DCS is an amazing (But expensive) Flight sim with the most realistic terrain I have ever seen... The Persian Gulf map is just amazing. The F-14B is simply the most true to life sim of an aircraft I have ever seen. Not to keen on their new F-16 though. They should have left it alone. Its a toy compared to BMS...

I follow the reddit for it, but currently have no interest in getting it myself.

Apples and Oranges... BMS has the avionics and the dynamic campaigns while DCS has the eye candy but the problem with DCS is that half of it is broken and no one is working to correct it. And the Modules come out with issues or are broken by updates to DCS world Beta. So its either mind blowing graphics or real world avionics and war... But not both in any sim yet...

DCS is hard. Not even joking a little. Holy cow I feel like I need to go to flight school to figure it out, BMS was 10x easier in that regard. Making the time for it is not easy that is for sure.

The quality of DCS and its amazing detail just blows my mind... To bad the game play is so screwed up and the modules so messed up (Except the F-14B that is!! :D ).

There has not been any development on the gaming engine itself since they made it free (free with no real combat planes that is, unless you only want to fly an unarmed P-51D or a Frogfoot)... The game itself needs a ton of work done on it or this sim will always be a half guilt broken mess. And it will be beautiful while doing it, but it wont be a realistic experience like BMS 4.34 ...
