Do I need a twist axis to enjoy this game?

I'm currently without a flight stick, though I used to enjoy playing simulators wth my Saitek X52. ... Over ten years ago. I haven't felt a need to buy a flight stick since.

I picked up a copy of this game since it is compared to Descent, which I loved.

I wanted to know if I can complete /and/ enjoy this game without having a twist axis, or does the level of play and dogfighting demand it? If I can scrape by with just my Xbox 360 wired controller, I'd prefer to do that, since I don't tend to play flight simulators much at this point.

Just like in Descent (1, 2, and 3): You dont HAVE to have a twist axis (z axis) but it can be very helpful if you choose to do a corkscrew maneouver.

My preference is to use the twist axis.

I like to turn off roll correction. Feels more pro when you pull of a maneuver!

I turned off the "auto leveling" setting which makes the game play like Descent for me.
