Summary: This game is an Arcade with a dash of simulation. The unlocks IMO are a joke and a ploy to target a certain audience. I think this game could have been better and its a shame it has the IL2 stamp on it.
Summary: This is not a SIM! I'ts an aircraft "game", as said by the developers themselves. So just that you know what you get here. I will review this sim from a simmers perspective flying IL2: CloD and DCS, who wants "more" depth in a Sim, not less. IL2 1946 players though will feel right at home here.
Summary: Everythings there for this title to be a future classic. The externals are very very well done, the landscape and general scenary are what you`d expect of a snow covered Stalingrad area. The little extras like the cylinder firing flashes etc etc are all very well done.
Great game no longer supported, though you can get it working with third party ad-ons

Summary: The company 1C had so much trouble getting this game working, that they gave up on their new engine. There are third party add-ons which will get this going (with a little bit of digging to find all the right downloads and some work).
Summary: I bought the Yoke and pedals to add some realism to my sim pit. The yoke is very sticky and therefore hard to find "neutral" to trim a plane. I found the pedals more useful, though both have a real "toy" quality to them. I look forward to upgrading in the future to a better built metal set.
Summary: I am sorry to say that the original Pikmin game was better, but only because you had more limitations when it came to completing your mission. in this Pikmin game you can play for many "Pikmin years" (which i don't think is possible) instead of just 30 "Pikmin days" (which is about 15 or so hours)...
Summary: THE GOOD The Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS stands unique amidst it's peers. I Know of no other controller outfit that weighs in like this metal duo. The Cougar is literally heavy and generously laden with function. Extensively configurable; designed for the most serious flight simulation enthusiast.
Summary: I've owned all of the better flight simulators, and IL 2 Sturmovik is my favorite! The realism is awesome as is the number of views (of the aircraft, inside and out) The aircraft that were difficult to fly in real life (MEl09 amongst others)are difficult in IL 2.
