Summary: This is more of a game and not a flight sim. Plus, good luck finding anyone to fly with online. I enjoy the flight models that you get to tear the sky up with, but tearing up the sky against AI is BORING. Anyway, if you want a mindless Sim, here you go, you want a Sim that will rock your mind, Birds of Steel is the way to go my friends. Good Hunting and see yall in the air.
Unlimited lives just a bit too easy, except for two missions

Summary: Generally I liked this game. Some of the controls with a 6-axis are a bit clunky, however generally pretty good. Visuals are OK, not generally a standout element. The campaign is a decent length, and the missions are a pretty good mix (would have liked 1-2 more naval themed missions). I have two complaints though - during campaign mode you have no options to select your plane or loadout, and (for me) two of the campaign missions were way tougher than all the others.
Summary: the game is fun and has a longish campaign. it is a little unrealistic, but do-able. graphics could be better, but we're talking 'bout a pretty old game. nobody is online. Overall, if you like campaign only games that you sell later, get it, but you probably won't sell it again. people think it is garbage and won't buy it. the person who sold to me wrote "THANK YOU" just like that on the receipt. LITERALLY!
Summary: I purchased this game for XBox360 and "Wings of Prey WWII Air Combat" for the PC thinking it would be two different WWII games. After loading this game and playing a couple of missions, I installed "Wings of Prey" on my laptop just to find out that it was identical to IL Sturmovik 2. Therefore, watch out - even though the graphics, title, and developers on the case are different, it's the same game. Also, I'm returning the PC version back to Amazon for a refund...
Summary: I loved this game on how you can fly the airplane and flight in the air over the most famous WWII places. The negative part was that the highest difficulty was real hard and there was nobody online so I can do some trophies online.
Summary: Very Solid game. Varying degree of difficulty and controls. Interesting level interaction and objectives. Lots of levels. Will easily keep you playing 3 weeks - 1.5 months. Good graphics and play control. I give this one a high score.
