Perfection at Every Turn

If like me, you have a passing interest in aviation history then you will simply adore this classic title.

Use the game along with a popular flight simulator lobby system available online and you will find a multiplayer experience that’s as close to godly as you'll ever be likely to find.

Even if you don't know what a ww2 plane interior looks like, you can just tell everything is modeled to be exceptionally accurate...it just reeks of authenticity.

For me, this is a real touchstone in gaming history and should be in every gamers library, especially for anyone who enjoys history.

Best you can get

Il2-Sturmovik 1946 is so far the best WW2 flying simulator. This compilation includes every expansion pack (Forgotten Battles, Ace Expansion Pack and Pacific Fighters) plus new aircraft, maps and campaigns. Graphics look great with little tweaking and flying feels good. There are lots of mods and other improvements to load from the internet. There are endless possibilities with this game thanks to a Full Mission Builder, campaign generators and great modding community.

The best WW2 flight simulation there is

This is without a doubt, a flight simulation classic. Gameplay, scalability, and realism are top notch. Even though the engine has its roots in 2001, it is still excellent for what it is and can create some really great moments. Performance is silky smooth as well. Multiplayer coop is always a blast with a few mates. Furthermore, this game has a large modding community behind it. They've created mods that cover WW1 and are now spanning into Korea with the first very early and unreliable air to air missiles. If you're a flight simulation fan, this is a must have in your collection.

One of the best

This is definitely one of the best aviation games out there. The gameplay is great, controls smooth and graphics stunning. There's much variety as you can fly many airplanes, and fly through various large maps. There are even nine campaigns, so you won't get bored very fast when you're playing this game. There is even customization that exceeds your imagination. Although the multiplayer still needs some work, it's a great start.
