IL 2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey
This game really impressed me. Everything about it was realistic, from the maneuverability of each individual aircraft right down to the sound of the antique propeller-driven turbines churning through the war-torn skies. If you like realism and WWII thrill, it's definitely worth a spin!
Realism meets Fun
I've been playing flight simulators since the early 1990's. My repertoire consists of Chuck Yeager's Air Combat, Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator, and the Ace Combat Series. So, you could say that I know what a good flight simulator consists of. I can tell you that this is the most realistic WWII combat flight simulator on the market for the PS3. The Arcade Mode enables novice gamers to enjoy the game without being overwhelmed, while the Simulator mode better suites the more experienced fliers. The graphics are solid, could be a bit smoother but nothing to complain about. The controls are easy to learn AND realistic: Each plane handles differently. The sound is great: listen as comrades and enemies alike shout over the radio as you maneuver the skies. A must-buy for WWII air combat gamers, young and old alike.
AWESOME GAME !!!!
I bought this today.Put it in my PS3 and played it and it was so awesome. If you like planes.This is the game to get !! It's only 12.99 pretty cheap. It's worth the money! IL-2 WORTH IT!!!
Great Game! Good for plane fans!
I bought this game last friday and will never turn it back in. It is simply the best combat simulator out there and is perfect on my shelf. I love how you can go to cockpit view or a different view. I also like how you can select your plane in instant action but i wish there was a cockpit view for the BF 109 which there is only a cockpit view for the planes you flew in campaign.
I heard such great reviews of this game so I decided to check it out. I got my copy for $20 a little while ago but based on the reviews I though I was getting a steal I was really misinformed. The Graphics are OK but I honestly think overall but the lack of almost any Allied AI and infinite lives in campaign mode except in the challenge missions in a game claiming to be realistic is pretty bad. Although you may get 3 different views the game is almost impossible to control except from the view behind the plane. The tutorials are boring and long and the things you unlock from them are not very impressive.Although it is nice to see that you have to go into a mission with a set plane but it can get boring not being able to select the plane you want to fly in which would have been cool even if only on arcade difficulty and the others were set due to the harder difficulties being more realistic. Health wise is pretty accurate except for hits from 30mm cannons such as an ME 262 which is underpowered when the computer controls it.Buildings look OK in the game but they are not even close the the planes which themselves are OK but lack enough detail when damages such as a bullet hitting the wing but no hole appears in some cases.Overall the game is a waste of time. In my Opinion either try out Heroes Over Europe or wait for Ace Combat Assault Horizon.
I Got this game about a weak ago and is great ! The graphics are just as Good as Modrn warfare 2, and the campan is very long 50 Missions, The onlin is not very big but you can still fnd people to battle with online and but there is no lag at all wich makes it a great.
I got this game last week and it is great. The graphics are just as good as Modern warefare 2, and the campaign is very long 50 missions, The online is not that big right know but you can still find people to battle with and anouther great thing is there is no lag at all online wich makes it a great experence. and for for 20.00 bucks it is better than most games that cost 60.00 includeing modation and medal of honor
Glad to own this!!
I bought this game as a game to just "pass time". I didn't have any games for PS3 that were about fighter planes. I was always a fan of the Ace Combat series for earlier consoles's, so I figured I would give it a try. For a game under 20.00 this is an awesome game!! The initial download when you first put it in the PS3 is my only complaint. Other than that, have no worries when purchasing this title!!
Good flight Sim
I got this two days ago. I got to admit when i first turned it on I was like boring, but then I got better and better and now I can't stop playin it. You got 50+ missions and multiplayer,and tons of different WW2 airplanes.You do bombiing missions and dog fights.I also has online. I haven't triend multiplayer yet but if the mission are as good as they are the multiplayer should be better.The view is amazing . When you play over a urban area it looks like you are really in a plane and lookin down,and when you shoot a plane out it make a reealistic explosion when it hits the ground When you shoot a enemy in the wing his wing will fall off ,and If you shoot it in the engine it will go up in flames. This game is one of the best i've played in a while. I would deffintely recomend this to a friend.
first one to play and leave review
well bought it yesterday the 5th sept.2009 loads up nice doesn't take long to install no patch as of last night so far really fun most true leading on firing inawhile from an aviation game theres's only three settings for controls arcade wich is the easiest and gives you a leading target to get perfect shots realistic is not as easy but not hard either the sim is the hardest with flaps and trim button and no lead target the bad thing is you can't customize controls .. they give you 12 or so trainging misson then after main misson they give you option to di a secound misson most are just to land wich is pretty diffucault when not on arcade mode. it's real smooth gameplay and good hit detecation online play haven't giving it a try yet...single player is based on how long how many times and how many friendlys go down for points all and all i give it a total of 7.90 for game play and 9 for graphics also a 10 for enteraintment and also they give you airplanes from before 1942 to 1945
