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: I bought this game when it first came out in May of 2012 and it has provided over 120 hours of insane fun since then...no, this game is not for the arcade shooter, it is a polished, realistic and addictive flight sim that allows you to customize your planes and decimate your opponents on line. My favourite fighter is the Me 109 K-4, which I have used to successfully eliminate over 1,000 opponents on line.
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.
Summary: The graphics in this game as well as the story line are very good. However I'm still trying to adjust to the control configurations. I ordered Heroes of the Pacific at the same time and have been playing it more because I am more familiar with the play style. It's alot like that of Secret Weapons over Normandy on PS2 which I LOVE!! This game for WWII combat fans you will enjoy!!
Summary: This game has very good graphics, and is a challenge to play. This was my first Flight game and mastering the controls took a little while. Once I mastered them though the game plays well, and has many different aircraft, and missions to fly. If you like a bit of complexity, and a challenge this game is for you.
