"awesome but ..."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fight on all fronts, but only as Allied forces. You can fly German aircraft on single missions, but not in campaign mode.

For me it is one of the best PS3 flight combat sims out there, ranging from arcade mode to realistic to actual simulator mode.

Endless hours of flying fun and when you up for it (and finished the campaigns on arcade) go to harder mode, where limited fuel and ammo gives you the more realistic feel of back then.

Sadly for me though, no axis campaigns available

"Arcade flight sim"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Had IL2 on my PC, excellent game, Unfortunately for PS3 this has been so stripped back of features it is now an arcade game. Fun for a short while.

"Flight sim with guns...."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A basic flight sim type game but with guns. WWII plains, Dog Fights and bombing raids got to love it. Graphics are bit hoe hum but in all not a bad game.

"Intense, huge and fast paced"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

About time someone brought out a WWII flying game that actually feels realistic. The missions are huge, the graphics are fantastic (towns actually look like towns with buildings and trees etc), and the AI is challenging. The aircraft all look amazing, and the damage model is SICK. Online play makes for something a bit different as well. Gameplay has something for everyone, and its refreshing that you actually have to dogfight into a firing position and not just lock and fire missiles. If you love old school planes and find WWII interesting, you need this game.
