This may be widely available out there, in some forgotten arcade Shangri-la - a land of plentiful cabinets and quarters - but in the work-a-day, arcade-free world I live in I've never seen it.


For $2 Australian wouldbe fighter pilots can climb into this cabinet and play a bit of Ubisoft's Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WW II.

I had always thought that Ubisoft's 2006 World War II flight sim didn't extend its reach past the consoles it hit in 2006 and 2007, but apparently Global VR released this arcade version in 2008.


The cabinet includes surround sound, some pretty neat paint and lighting effects, a sharp rumble in the seat when you get shot and, unfortunately, occasional frame rate issues.
