Summary: I enjoyed this game. It was better than the first but a whole lot easier than the first too. No trying to run around and guessing where all the parts are and trying to get it done in a time frame of thirty days. This one you are just trying to salvage pieces and earn money for your home company plus you get to have some added help.
Summary: Download was trouble free. All told download and install w/Steam took about 90min. on Broadband. Could have cut the time a little bit as i was late a bit late noticing 2 prompts to continue. My Dell Inspiron 560 w/Intel core 2 duo e7500 @ 2.97GHZ with 8GB DDR3 and an Asus Radeon HD7750 1GB DDR5 PCI-e card runs the game just fine. Just playing in the Single Player mode for now only had it for 2 days. Setting up my Thrustmaster T Flight X HOTAS stick took a few min.
Summary: For quite a while I followed Cliffs of Dover on the internet. There were a lot of complaints. I bought just before the last two official downloads. I have to say, I've enjoyed the game tremendously and find nothing to complain about. Any problems have been of my own making, and as soon as I can manage a headset, I'll begin to play on line.. For what it's worth, I highly recommend the game.
Summary: After the initial release, many patches have fixed most of the original issues. Besides this, the "Team Fusion" group ( hosted in ATAG forums [...] have started modding the game and fixing and adding more things to the game. It is now definitely a good bang for the money!
Summary: This is a great game once you get it installed. I have a pretty good rig and so didn't expect any issues but I had some. Searched the net for over a day looking for the answer but couldn't find one. I was getting some message about engine sound could load or something like that. Finally I went into the graphics option and dialed down the affects just a tad and then everying worked as it should.
Summary: There was no doubt in the beginning that CloD (Cliffs of Dover) had problems. But just as the original IL2 had it's problems in the beginning, the community came through and made it one of the TOP sims of it's time. Present day shows that this self same enthusiasm is budding with CloD. Abandoned by it's creator it has now been taken over by the modding community in the form of Team Fusion.
Summary: Dispell all the negative things you heard, Both Maddox games lastest patches and the new third party patch from Team Fusion make this game one of the best combat flight sims out there. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the steep requirements to run the game properly. Mostly becuase it looks so damn good with all tghe detail turned up! If you have got a powerful machine and hefty grapics card, get this!
Summary: After 2 years of patches the base game of Cliffs of Dover is good. The mechanics and physics work well and are not to buggy. However the single player campaign is quite a disappointment. The story and mission design is pretty bad. However modders have found ways to change the campaign which a helps a lot. A European company called Desatorsoft have made custom campaigns which is awesome and is highly recommended.
