Summary: My 15 year old loves this game for its unlimited bullets, a good amount of bombs and missiles, and the fun and challenging missions to select from. The cons on this game for him was how you had to return your plane in its upright original position first before you can change your turn or direction.
Summary: Graphics, of course not as good as home console systems. The dialog is very repititious and a bit annoying. When you shot down a plane you can hear the sound of the crash yet the developer has subtitiles that say (noise) when a sound is created? You can breeze thru the average setting in a day or 2.
Summary: The video clips and other reviews are for the PS3 and XBox versions of this game. The PSP version is an anemic watered down boring hastily created version of the game. The developers really took a snooze on this one. While the game was mildly entertaining for a few hours, the graphics are very mediocre and the playability is lame. Don't get me wrong, IL-2 for the PC is one of my favorite flight sims to this day. Ace Combat X, IMHO, blows way IL-2 for the PSP.
Summary: I asked my son to rate this game as it was bought for him for his birthday. He said he enjoys it but the missions can be quite difficult. My son is 11 and enjoys a lot of war games. I'd recommend this to boys the same age range as him although the pegi rating is 7+.
A good arcade flying shooter, a pity you can't barrel roll!

Summary: I played this game on the PS3 last year and was totally absorbed in the game. I bought this to go on holiday with, but didn't find the experience as satisfying. The problem was that the maneuverability of the plane could have been better and meant that enemy planes would get lost easily.
Summary: Got this for xmas and I was a fan of IL 2 for pc. But this isn't by Maddox, they've obviously just licenced the brand and its pants. For flight sim fans, don't waste your money, and if you're an IL2 grognard from the PC version this is a serious let-down. Simplistic, 3 levels of 'so called' realism and a single toggle for changing the controls.
Summary: Way too small a game. Sure there are about 20 missions but they take 10 minutes each and there is no variation at all in target positioning. Once you've done all the missions you can go and do them again in any of the aircraft, but that's the extent of the replay value. Controls are overly simplistic - you can't roll inverted at all. You never land or take off and you can carry way too much ordnance.
