IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Review

GameSpot
15 April 2011
  • Excerpt: When a once-popular genre goes underrepresented for so long, it's tempting to give any new entry the benefit of the doubt. That's especially true when that new product comes from a developer known for its dedication to the subject matter. IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover is one such game, and Maddox Games is one such developer. What to make, then, of this unfinished fiasco, especially when its target audience has so few modern options?
  • Pros: Proper simulation mechanics in a genre with too few recent entries, Fighting for victory is intense and gratifying
  • Cons: Fluctuating frame rate and stutters can make the game difficult to play, The RAF campaign is a disaster, A huge number of bugs, glitches, and other concerns

IL2 Sturmovik, Myst III and Destroyer Command

GamesPaper
28 April 2007
  • Excerpt: It wasn't long ago that budget games weren't much more than simply being low priced cut down version which didn't really stand up to full priced titles. During more recent years a number of budget ranges have appeared, including the Focus Essential range which is made from a number of leading Ubisoft titles.

IL-2 Sturmovik

The Gamers Temple
12 February 2007
  • Excerpt: The IL-2 Sturmovik is not a plane that conjures up much emotion among most gamers or even flight sim enthusiasts.  However, this ground attack plane was instrumental in helping the Soviet Union beat back the invading Panzers of the Third Reich during World War II.  Packed with machine guns, cannons, rockets, and bombs, the IL-2 was affectionately referred to as the "Flying Tank" by the Soviet forces and earned the nickname "Black Death" from the Germans who had to face...

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: It's no Microsoft Flight Simulator , but I don't think anyone will be complaining. Il 2 Sturmovik's graphics meet, if not exceed, the competitions' level of quality. As is the case with most flight sims, the closer to the ground you get, the poorer the graphics. But from the sky, a beautiful Russian landscape is presented to you with stunning quality.

  • Summary: IL-2 Sturmovik is quite simply one of the best (if not the best) combat flight simulations I have seen. It has an impressive list of game features and modes, exceptional graphics, amazing sound, and a compelling and challenging flight model. The developers of the game have done a great job, especially considering that this is their first outing. If a realistic World War II simulation does not scare you, get off your butt and get IL-2 right now. You won't regret it.

IL-2 Sturmovik

  • Excerpt: True confession to make: I have not played a flight simulation game since 1987. A bad experience with Microsoft’s “Flight Simulator” for the Commodore 64 has left me more than skeptical of the genre. Perhaps “bad” is the incorrect word – it was a boring experience. Having saved my hard earned money as a teenager, only to find out the most exciting feature of the game was to crash an unimpressive little cessna repeatedly into the ground was a severe disappointment.

IL-2 Sturmovik

The Wargamer
22 February 2002
  • Excerpt: IL-2 Sturmovik is not for the faint-hearted. Playing it on full difficulty levels is an amazing challenge and something that has occupied me solidly for a couple of months … the shine has far from worn off. It is a refreshingly new game (although some may see this as a problem) offering a range of aircraft not usually encountered in World War II simulations.
