Product Details:

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is based around large-scale aerial combat over the ground-based military operations of World War II. Players participate in the war's most famous confrontations piloting fighters, battle planes or heavy bombers across a range of thrilling missions. There are five seats of war to engage in - The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun - representing the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe.

As well as advanced environmental visuals enriching the game play, IL-2 also boasts an all new damage effects engine. Players can see real time damage to the aircraft such as holes in the wings and trail lines during dog fights. Hundreds of airplanes taking part in air battles is a distinguishing feature of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and the unique environmental engine also produces highly detailed, realistic landscapes that allows players to see a brand new simulation of ground support actions.

  • Completely flexible difficulty level system: from arcade to realistic simulation

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast. This is like, the best game ever. The graphics are AMAZING! I love flying at full speed at an enemy plane then bailing out and letting my empty plane take them out. In the first level of the demo you are fighting near the white cliffs of Dover, I love just flying around and looking at all the sights.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as epic as pc at all il2 for the pc was a fantastic flight sim with graphics attention to detail difficulty etc, this one falls short to its little brother im sorry to say. the game is not hard its basically a fly and shoot it seems there is no chance of being shot down but in il2 for the pc when you get shot at you see flaps come off,wingtips , propellors,engine fires holes in your cockpit window holes in your plane,rudders flying off,hydralic lines being snapped but the game is not about its attention to detail while being attacked its also about being an actual flight sim with geforces , blackouts , white outs , difficulty flying in various weather conditions. in my opinion the fun in il2 for the pc is that your plane gets really really banged up and you figure out how to still fly it and be effective fighting other airplanes that are fully fuctional. all of the above is missing from this flight sim if you want a history lesson and mediocre arcade shoot em up with an airplane be my guest im sorry it didnt work for me

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very good flight sim Ya know I just don't get some people, they play FPS games and then try a flight simm and think it should look and act the same. Not quite. Anyway this is a very great game for the Hard Core gamer and Casual Gamer if you want to fly actual missions from WW II pilots. You can fly different planes in different country's on different missions, stick to the mission or fly free. The controls are better than some and easy to get use to. Over all it's a very good game. I've finished the game on normal and hard and will keep playing this one for some time. I have NO plans to sell it. And Yes, I have a number of FPS games as well as flight simms. Have fun, Never fly straight!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst game ever This game is so boring and hard to understand. I would rate this a 0. I wanted to return it after 15 minutes. DO NOT BUY! Not worth a penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME gAme This game is beutiful, it completly captures the real feel of flying a plane-Yes I have flown a plane-and the option of a cockpit view makes this game so much more realistic. I bought this game because I love airplanes and this game blew me away. I would reccomend this game to anyone! WOOHOO!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WWII Flying never looked nor felt better Just picked this title up last week on a whim, I was really in the mood for a flying game and this title does just that for me. So far I've clocked 10 hours of game play and I'm truly enjoying the experience. This game serves up the era of planes perfectly and it does show very well in the graphics department. The game play is fun so even the amateur player can enjoy with enthusiasm. I really like the visuals of the game, cock-pit view, 3rd person and sometimes your put as the tail gunner, all aspects are well done. Plane designs are spot on and damage control on each part is very well created. It gives you a real sense of urgency when your plane is all shot up, just look out your window! So far I'd say for a console flying game it beats all other rivals in the flying genre. I would recommend this title to all gamers who enjoy flying combat and the era. Definite buy! My next goal is to go online with this baby.
