WW2OL - me and many in my squad have played it since 2001. Many of them fly planes. And yes there are higher resos and support for widescreen too. It has great tank sim too.
Monthly subscription fee...pfft. Not for this Scot
TBH, there isn't a lot of replayability in the COD games, unless you enjoy online play. They are great, stimulating rides (especially the latest) but the same spawn point for enemies kills the replayability. If they had random spawns, then definitely.
As it is, I've got about 12 hours of single player gaming from COD4 and I'm part way through my second campaign. Although I pretty much know where the enemy are coming from, I'm playing it on the second from hardest difficulty level and you die quicker and there are more enemy (and they're more accurate) I think....so replayability for this game is going to be probably 3x the single player campaign and then online...that's about 20-30 hours of single player gaming which isn't that bad. Of course if you start at the hardest level, you'll probably get about 10-15 hours (if you manage to complete it!).
But it is what it is. The graphics are astounding. The missions are excellent. The voice acting is spot on and varied. The story is believable and draws you in. Crouching behind a wall while OpFor fire is coming in all directions and seeing one of your buddies go down does have meaning. Of course, your never left on your own
It's a great ride, and multiplayer is fun too.
I tried WW2OL (WW2 Online) a while back and I wasn't impressed with the graphics, I wasn't impressed with the empty servers and I wasn't impressed with being dumped x0 miles behind enemy lines only to eventually make my way to the front and be put down by a sniper! Of course, as part of a clan, I'm sure playing it is fun. Like most MP games, clans are the way to get proper enjoyment out of them. Whether the graphics are better I don't know.
WWI flight sims are a no-no as far as I am aware. There is a game in development called Knights of the Sky I think. Battle of Britain Wings of Victory looks great and puts you right in the ehat of battle. Pretty authentic.
For my money if you want visual stim ride factor you will not go wrong with COD4
