Summary: This is hands down the best flight sim I have played for the console. I got IL2 birds of prey when it first came out a few years back and I was actually pretty disappointed by the lack of depth. This game is a massive improvement with a staggering amount of aircraft, and enough mission customization options to keep you playing for months on end. Getting a flight stick would definitely be worth the extra forty dollars for this game.
Summary: It's just like IL-2 stomouvick but with much much more. I recommend this game to anyone however I don't see why they are selling for $140+. It's like if I see one selling for $40 I don't trust it. Great game, realistic flight they did a great job on this.
Summary: I was looking for a WW2 dogfight/plane simulator game and heard great reviews about this one. Needless to say I am amazed at this game! Not only is it enjoyable as far as the campaign/story goes, but as a simulator game it is spectacular! The gameplay and graphics are incredibly realistic. The game is certainly worth a high price tag. When I first looked at this game in August 2013 it was only $20 on Amazon...I didn't buy it.
Summary: The best WWII flight simulation game so far!! I really enjoy the excellent collection of WII war planes in this game, especially the axis ones. The only down side is that all the surface units on the sea (i.e. ships) are not generating waves when they are supposed to be moving. The aircraft carriers that you are taking off from should have been sailing full-speed against the wind, but you don't see this when you take off in this game.
The best flight sim you can buy for a console and maybe even the best period.

Summary: Beautiful graphics, great sound, and very realistic physics make for an amazing air combat experience. Play with a huge list of historical WWII aircraft reaching over 100 planes in all, but honestly, in simulation mode, the missions will be so challenging yet fulfilling that you won't be so focused on collecting all of the planes, but rather just completing the missions and mastering the planes that you do get, so this makes the gameplay so much more rich.
Summary: Finally we have something pretty close to original IL-2! Good physical model, almost all flight parameters are controllable (you need a HOTAS joy to do that) and we have Pacific now! Game has a solo campaign and dynamic campaign generator - great way to set your own war theater for training before you're ready to go multiplayer.
