Default High Stakes Campaign Thoughts?

I know at this time many people haven't had time to play the new P-51D High Stakes campaign.

If you have, what do you think?

Didn't get to play it but from what I could gather in the news letter, it sounds a lot like the default challenge campaign. Hopefully someone who has played it can pitch in?

The first mission was about taking off, followed by a left hand circle around the airfield, touch and go and then another left hand circle before landing. Not really very thrilling.

The second mission was a little more promising, you had to fly from Russia to Georgia following a long river through a mountain pass and staying at tree top level for not been detected.

This was fun in terms of memorising the route and then navigating your way to the objective. I didn't finish the mission since i missed a way point (for no obvious reason, i though i am on spot)..

The plot of the story is probably, you started to work for a Russian mafiosi and will have to do some dirty work for him. It reminds me a little of the flying missions in GTA V. Telling from the screenshots in the module description, there will be at least also some ground attacking.

Not sure if this helps making up your mind, I'm more into the WW2 birds and hadn't any campaign yet for the p51. Also I think it is actually cheap ($6 if you use your bonuses) and like to think that buying stuff from ED will help them keeping their great work up in order for us to enjoy this game even more with the upcoming modules like the spit, the jug and the normandy map.....

So what ever will come up and is related to props or cold war area jets and before, I will buy them.

I have just updated. However, I can not see the "High Stakes" campaign?

All I have is the "Challenge" campaign?

Are these both the same thing? Or do I have to download it separately?

Cheers.

EDIT.

Forget the above post, I just saw its $9.99...................

Sodom, I am definitely going to get it because like you I love all things Warbird. Haven't had a chance to check out the 109 or the 190 yet though. Thank you for validating my purchase though it sounds like the campaign could be promising. Very interesting premise for the story too.

How does the f10 work and why is it needed. I get stuck on mission 2. F10 works sometime and sometimes not the same way. I can't even get to the mountains.

The premise (Russian Mafiosi) is too silly to even consider this campaign.
