I have been playing IL2 and purchased heros this week. I feel IL2 is a much better game. I have been wanting a ww II flying game for a while and then these 2 games came out this month. In my opinion the IL2 game is much better and more realistic. First in hero's you are stuck with one view, outside behind the plane. IL2 you have three different views which is much better. Me personally I like the cockpit or outside view, gives you more of a realistic feel to the game. Also the controls for 2 are better, they are similar to the hawx game, where you can turn the plane without it having to bank, in heroes you do not have that, you are turning all the time and there is really no point on the screen to show what the horizon is, if you are going up or down, you can actually bounce off the ground in heros at a low angle. The "ACE KILL" is corney to me. fighting in combat you can not aim your gun. in IL2 you have to go in and shoot like they do in battle and take out the plane. the graphics i must say heros has hands down, but the plane is not scaled to the buildings, not too sure if IL2 is the same. being I use in cockpit view. They are both good games, IL2 has a lot of missions, dont know if heros has more then they show on screen? I guess it's what you like most with your flight game. Me I pick IL2. it would be nice if it had the same graphics that heros has.
