IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Il-2 Stumovik: Cliffs of Dover Il-2 Stumovik: Cliffs of Dover is not the latest Game. Nor does it have the shining Past of the old Il2 Series. BUT: Anyone who loves WW2 Flight Simulations must have it in the Library and it has a Future that at least elevates Cliffs of Dover To the Level of the old Il2. PRO:-TFS FTW! The Game is actively evolving. Information, Help, etc. can be found at the Forum of ATAG. -The Setting. Sure, that's a Taste Thing. But for the Early Days of the 2nd WK, the Setting is iconic. Spitfire vs. 109 is reminiscent of games Beads like Their finest Hour or Battle of Britain 2-Strong online Community and good Offer from online Servers. From Squadron Flight to Flight training, everything is online and via TS. It is Important to visit the ATAG Forum and browse. You can find (almost) everything the Heart of the MP Airman. -Good Single-player Equipment. The Game has come in orginally WITH quite a little SP Content and, compared to the original Il-2, has been rather spartan as far as SP Campaigns and Missions are concerned. Due To the Community, however, mainly Disastersoft, this has changed. VORSIGHT: The DS Campaigns are Payware! They come as Bundles (E.g. Amazon or DS Homepage) and there are currently 4 of them + 1 free Campaign. A Demo is also available. So If you mainly play SP and find it pleasing at Cliffs of Dover (E.g. TRY the excellent REDUX Campaigns of Heinkill instead of the original campaigns!), the Purchase pays off and offers massive Content for 1000 + Hours! -Good Equipment with contemporary Aircraft. Just briefly what comes to mind from the FF: Bf 109 (E-1, E-1B, E-3, E-3B, E-4, E-4B, E-4N) Hurricane Mk I (DH and Rotol) Bf 110 (C-2, C-4, C-7) Spitfire (Mk. I, Mk. IA, Mk. II) He 111 (H-2, P-2) Ju 88A-1 Blenheim Mk. IV (normal and F) Tiger Moth FIAT G.50 FIAT BR 20m Su 26 (as An Encore) The British Hunting Machines are still divided into 80 and 100 Octane variants, but for the Battle of Britain you can safely only use the 100 Oct. Use Variants. -Credible Flight Physics that is still being actively (23.11.17). -Excellent Damage model. -Up to today, defensible graphics, which will be improved again with the next official Patch (DX11). CONS:-Expensive. Yes, if you look at the Price of the Game, you think to yourself, "What does he mean by that?," but it is not so much the Software that makes. It is also not due to CloD, but to Flight Simulations in general. For pure Enjoyment and to fly "as intended" you need at least: Joysick (Rudder) Pedale You can play with the Mouse or Start with a twist Joystick instead of the Pedals, but you will always miss that certain something. Especially Players of Warthunder etc. will be disappointed with the Mouse control. In order to really immerse yourself in the matter on offer, it is also advisable To: TrackIR or headtracker Thrust Lever or a cione AS unit and to spread over it a potent (!) Pc. Verdict: Expensive Hobby. -Accessibility: There are Arcade Modes and Immortality but Aerial Combat with realistic Flight Models is An Induction matter. In any Case, you should definitely adjust to a steep Learning Curve and get Help from the online Community if necessary! -Interface. Yes, after more than 1000 Hours of CloD it doesn't stand out to me that much anymore, but it's not very user-friendly and the Game isn't really "plug 'n play." Beginners in particular could quickly be overwhelmed. My Tip: Keep Calm and try it out, read ATAG Forum in an Emergency OR post a request for help. (There is also a German Area)-Bugs/unfinished features: The Game has improved through years of Work by TFS STARK. Nevertheless, there is one or the other Construction Site. Game stoppers are not there for me, but you shouldn't assume completely flawless Software. The Bugs are noted via Bug Tracker (anyone registered on ATAG can) and also mended. It should also be mentioned that most of it is not a Bug at all, but a Feature that could no longer be finalized by the original Devs. -Complicated Installation. This Point will soon be a thing of the Past (with Patch 4.5), but the Installation process with "Install game" in STEAM is far from complete (especially if you use the Aforementioned Disastersoft Products!) FAZIT: Flight Enthusiasts and Supporters of the Air Combat Simulations will certainly get their Money's worth here. The helpful and very active Online Community on ATAG also offers a good Start for Beginners. Last But not Least, it is thanks to the sacrificial, voluntary Work of Team Fusion Simulations (TFS) that this once raw Diamond of WW2 Flight Simulations became a lup-pure Pleasure.
