Summary: Everything works on this product except for the "up" position, using the top hat. This is the 4 position switch used for looking out the window in 4 separate directions and is located on the top of the right topside arm of the product. I am uncetain if I want to take it apart at this time to investigate the issue.
Summary: I got this yoke to use with Microsoft Flight Simulator. Other people have said that the build quality is poor on this yoke, but what did you expect? It's just a computer game controller, it's not meant to feel like an actual pilot's yoke. If it were, it would probably be much, much more expensive! Yes, the plastic build makes it feel like just another joystick, but I've had it for almost a year and haven't had any problems with it.
Summary: I've read tons of reviews on the TM Cougar before I finally gave in, got my pennies together, and ordered it. All the reviews I read raved about it being the ultimate HOTAS setup for serious flight sim fans. Well, I've had my Cougar now for a few weeks and for the most part, I'd have to agree. It is a quality piece of hardware with very sophisticated programing abilities that's built to last.
Summary: First of all, this isn't a game, it's a simulator. If you've never flown a flight simulator before, getting up to speed isn't that easy. The default button mappings are odd, and if you don't know what controls do what, you might not even know what controls to map in the first place. While there are tutorials, they certainly aren't good enough for newbies. I had to do some research on how to fly planes to understand exactly what I'm doing.
Summary: My name is Jason and yes the IL2 Sturmovik 1946 is a really great game.I really enjoy flying around the world in WorldWar II and seeing all the action at the same time.I have only one thing to ask if possible,how do you get to the other games on the IL2 sturmovik 1946,like playing the Ace part.If its not to much to ask for,could I get some help on this matter.Thank you Jason.
Excerpt: "Generally a very good game. Ideal for gamers that dont want to get stuck in too deep with the details of flying a plane, but dont want the arcade style offered by some games. Its easy to use, and you dont need to be a qualified pilot. Can be played almost entirely with the keyboard, but joystick recommended. Wide variety of flyable aircraft, and the option for mission creation, as well as a wide variety of campaigns for both sides means that you ...
Pros: Very playable, lots of flyable aircraft, both sides playable .
Cons: Restricted aircraft types . More single missions and maps would be good .
Conclusion: These games are a bit long in the tooth now and why it doesn't get five stars, but I still can't imagine a better recreation of the WWII flying experience. I had the original IL2 game on an old PC, and that game is not included here. I bought this because I had never had the Pacific expansion pack and couldn't find it anywhere for a price lower than this compilation.
Conclusion: Personally, I've always been a fan of flight simulators and I've always enjoyed combat flight simulators. I'd heard great things about this from a number of sources and was itching to try it out.
Conclusion: This game as got a lot of flak but I would say that its a good game once you've gotten used to it.When its first installed it takes ages to patch but once it has, before you play it, configure the horrible control settings(who the hell uses two joysticks!) next give it a little go and see how it flies.If its a stuttering mess then configure the graphics until it starts running smoothly, I found using the high settings for damage(if you don't you cant tell if you hitting...
Excerpt: Au risque de m'attirer la vindicte des fans de simulation aérienne, je vais me permettre un petit avis perso ?.sur cet Il-2 Sturmovik, objectivement plus que réussi et qui fera le bonheur des amateurs, je n'en doute pas un instant.
