DCS: Black Shark 2 - If it ain't ugly, it ain't tough.

If it ain’t ugly, it ain’t tough.


DCS: Black Shark 2DCS: Black Shark 2 is a massive upgrade to the original DCS: Black Shark simulation that retains everything that was good about the original. ED shook a few tail feathers by not giving folks a heads-up this upgrade would be payware, but the amount of content in this upgrade is considerable — way more than just a few bug fixes. If you can afford to spend $20 USD (about the cost of a DVD) for the upgrade, or $40 USD (about the cost of two DVDs), head on over to Digital Combat Simulator’s web site and check it out.
