  • Conclusion: This is what I want in a World War II flight simulator. I want all aspects and all situations that I can possibly have when it comes to this type of game. IL-2 Sturmovik provides you with all of this and more. It takes you into battle; let's you go nuts and pulls you back to help defend your country. You get all aspects of what it's like being a fighter pilot.

  • Excerpt: . I had heard good things going in and right off the bat, I knew I was looking at a more complete flight game; an action experience that tends to utilize more realistic elements – even when flying in standard Arcade mode – and feels a bit more authentic at every turn. The in-cockpit view alone separates it from the rest of the crowd, and the combination of excellent effects and ultra-smooth (albeit more challenging) control really stands out in my mind.

IL-2 Sturmovik review

  • Conclusion: IL2 has the basics covered and may convert many arcade players to trying the less forgiving difficulties it offers, but even if it doesn’t what IL2 does do is bring the thrill of realistic dog fighting to console gamers, no matter what the experience level and for that it should be commended. A few bugs like screen tearing and frame rate issues hamper the action in some frantic missions, it does nail home the joys and horrors of WW2 flight combat well.
  • Pros: Frantic large scale battles. excellent damage modelling on aircraft. excellent atmosphere, good online play.
  • Cons: Frame rate issues at times

  • Conclusion: Echte flightsim fans kunnen met een gerust hart hun voorkeur voor PC blijven verdedigen, maar dit moet hen niet tegenhouden om stiekem te genieten van deze consoleversie. De gevechten zijn nog steeds even intens en de game biedt uren vliegplezier. Enkel de net iets mindere hardware in vergelijking met een goeie PC zorgt ervoor dat deze versie net iets minder goed uitvalt dan het oudere broertje.
