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). Graphics are significantly better than the old game, but you are limited to early Battle of Britain aircraft and scenarios, so you really lose something in the bargain.
Summary: Hard to use but I'm not a whiz at games..Bought it for grandson to play with but he lost interest when he couldn't get it to fly without crashing..It has some good graphics but for price it's not a bad buy..
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. If you can get them cheap enough, it is worth it for a while.
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) like in the original and as it is your spaceship keeps pointing this out that will help you in the game as you go on but it shouldn't do that since captain Olimar has already...
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. Ergonomically accurate we're told, as close to the real thing without being attached to an F16 -- and all quite believably true.
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. Flying as a rear gunner is an excellent feature. The choice of weather is excellent. I particulary like hiding in the gorgeous clouds and pouncing on the enemy!
