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: 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: I just got this game for my PS3 and it has to be the best flight combat game on the market hands down! The graphics are so crisp that you wanna go out and get your pilots license. The reliving of history or the recreation of it, is such a cool feature in the game. Spanning the pre-WWII era. Around the time of the infamous bombing of Pearl Harbor. You get to dive into hundreds of missions. All the airplanes are graphic butter on the screen and are as realistic as it gets!
Summary: Gaijin Games has hooked up with Konami this to make another sequel in their WW2 Flight IL-2. This is good news as it mean they finally are going to get a little coin behind their production. Unlike their marketing which doesn't even seem to have been addressed, typical. But that said it will be a game that will sell via word of mouth because it's a fan boy game really for the hardcore. Over all it's the best flight Sim on the PS3 or on any consol for a few reasons.
Summary: Birds of Steel is a very worthy sucessor of the best WWII aircraft simulator / arcade game for the PS3, IL-2 Sturmovik (2001, ported to the PS3 in 2009). The graphics are improved. The lighting effects are superior. And the multiplayer modes have been greatly expanded. The sound effects have also been improved, with added outside noise (plane panels, wind, etc) adding to the realism.
Summary: If you have enjoyed "IL-2 Sturmovik: birds of prey"(released in 2009), this game will satisfy fun that was not met by "IL-2". User interface, BGM and graphic are similar to that of "IL-2", but updated drastically on-line play surprises users. Be carefull! This title may lead you to game addiction!
Summary: I never write reviews, but since i am a writer i might as well throw in my 2 cents which is coincidentally the balance in my checking account. Anyway i have been praying for this game since i bought my first ps3 7-8 years ago. Not only is the game play and missions perfectly done, they pay full attention to every detail historical and geographical precise renditions This game is a Forza 4 GT5 but in hundreds of detailed plains from the Allies, and Axis powers.
