Conclusion: This is the final release of the long running IL2 series and brings with it at huge number of maps,planes and ground objects. There are 2 more free addons to this game available online as well as a host of free missions campaigns and plane skins. You will get the best from this game if you use a joystick. The game runs well on mid range graphics cards. If you like online play the you will need a copy of hyperlobby, as the inbuilt online interface is rarely used.
Conclusion: You want action, thrills, spills and historical realism its all here in this one box, you like spitfires its got ten of em, you can make it as realistic or easy as you like limited ammo, fuel etc, take off and landing, go dive bombing in a stuka strafe Japanese shipping in a mustang.
Conclusion: This is the final expansion of this superb series of games and is EVERYTHING you need to play online. Once you have installed this all you need is the 4.08 patch and you are set to play online with the rest of the community. I have been playing this series since 2004 so I know what I am saying when I tell you it is the best - how many other games out there have been played since 2001 and are still going very strong such as this title?
Conclusion: This game provides what I think is the most realistic of all the plane games, including such as the "Ace Combat" series. The realism of the planes is amazing. The graphics are good and it probably has over a hundred different levels. It's also Vista compatible, so all you nerds out there - don't worry. This game should really be played with a joystick, but it is just as fun when played on a keyboard.
Conclusion: This game includes everything (bar a patch or two) you need to be fully operational and in the skies in this most realistic,adrenaline pumping flight sim. This is the tops of ww2 flight sims out at the moment and offers so many hours of game play (especially online). all you need is a joystick and this game and youre off!
