Great game. Very atmosphericgraspee | Dec. 18, 2012 | See all graspee's reviews »
The graphics are really good, with the exception of the moon and a sometimes glitchy-looking mirror (which you can turn off). Hi-res cockpit with pushable buttons and light and shadow effects on it. Realistic on simulator level, it's all just so authentic-seeming and atmospheric. It's great fun shooting people too, in single player or multiplayer.
Big Ambitions, Great Graphics, in dire need of patching tho...thekman | April 20, 2011 | See all thekman's reviews »
What this is: The latest in the long line of Flight simulators in the IL2 series. Huge in scale with recognisable scenery, but in dire need of patching (If you’re reading this after it’s been patched then Buy it!)
Graphics: If your PC can handle this, the graphics are superb*. The best depiction of ground-based scenery ever. Cities are big and look good, ditto the planes (when you get close enough to actually look at them…)
You can turn the graphics down and it still looks great, but you’re missing a lot… *Have to say that the frame-rate has big issues all around though, no matter what you do.
Sound: Not a huge component of flight games as such, but what’s here is good and atmospheric.
Multiplayer: I had some problems with multiplayer (probably down to my PC?) so didn’t get to play much, but the scope is good and the options look fun.
Singleplayer: Two decent campaigns are here, mission objectives can be a bit murky and some easily missed, but it’s still great fun.
Summary: I’d like to recommend the game as is, but it really does need a big ol’ patch to fix many of the issues that are present here…
Once that’s done the game will be great, although I prefer Wings of Prey over this at the moment.
