Summary: This game is for advanced gamers only. The original game software was defective and is made operable only by downloading and integrating an aftermarket add in. Even with the add in my machine was not powerful enough to handle the code and provide a usable game.
Summary: This was to be a Christmas gift for my son. For some reason this was the top of his list. So when I purchased it at the beginning of Dec. I was led to believe it would arrive well before Christmas. Not only did it not arrive before the 25th it has still not shown up. The seller has not responded to any of my E-mails. I have never had an issue with purchases on Amazon, until now.
Summary: Got this game for me and my nephew, but we couldn't install it on Windows 8. I got it to run by running xp in a virtual desktop and it worked fine. However, no matter what type of compliance we ran in W8 it just wouldn't even install, but it wasn't meant to I don't guess...no big deal though...I just need to read before jumping on to buy next time. Someone else mentioned it in comments...so now I am a commenter fan.
Summary: Maybe it's just the game is too old for my computer, but it doesn't work. Loaded upside down, and in black and white. Lousy graphics from what I could tell, even if it were in color. Microsoft Combat Simulator WWII Europe Series works just fine on this computer even though it's an old game like IL 2.
Summary: Should have made this for wii like they did Pikmin 1. Actually they did, but never released it in USA. Wish nintendo released it in USA which would have made game more accessible here to more people. Now limited availablility leading to people taking advantage and selling at ridiculous prices on here (and sometimes slightly better on ebay or at local places selling used games).
