IL-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey reviews and comments

Microsoft from French
I was expecting a simple game of aerial fight, style defouloir, and it's actually a real flight simulation-not my thing! There was a misgiving. Far too technical for my aspirations... Not recommended for those who would have the same expectations as me...

Game doesn't really work. It opens and when I close it it is still executed at team. As a result, it looks like I'm always playing it. Steam didn't want to worry about this Problem. A very pity what I had seen briefly I thought was good

After a few hesitations, no regrets for this promo game: from Arcade mode to simulator mode, with a complete integrated tutorial, a French version, here is an air war Simulator 39/45 easily accessible, including for beginners like me. A real pleasure to (re) discover flight simulators:) A really pleasure to (re) discover planes simulators! :)

I was very disappointed with the gameplay and graphics, do not rely on the images of the game page it does not look like this... Anyway I do not recommend it even if its price is low, in the end it is a pale copy of IL2 except that even the IL2-forgotten battles of 2002 and 10x better (wings of prey to taken exactly the same menu music-_-) voili-veou I advise you more IL2 (pay Ant) or rise of flight (free with paid DLC) or then war-Thunder (free) for easy grip (aiming with the mouse) I think it will be all

I'Ve put together a List of what's good And what's not: Pro:-Gellied flight simulation--Detailed Contra:-Although I have a GTX 950m, the Game told me I Had less than 512mb graphics memory, which is why I only have the Game on Low Games-Without Add-On there are no Playable German airplanes-Annoying controller possibility to create a Quickmatch conclusion: Who does not put any Worth it on Playing German aviators, does not have the said Problem with the graphics memory and is a Fan of Aircraft Simulations Should strike. For my Part, I prefer to play IL2 Sturmovik for the first time.

Aerial simulation! Nice! Why not after all? It must be said that since the last flight simulator, the genre had unfortunately been strongly neglected on PC. First positive observation: wings of prey is a beautiful game. The floor decorations are detailed and all the playable devices are modeled to perfection with the purists a "cockpit" view that is worth a visit. Gameplay level, it is better to have a pad (XBOX 360 preferably) or a joystick in order to make the most of the game experience we offer this title in the best conditions. Accessible to all by allowing a determination of the difficulty from the most Arcade to the +/-simulation, it proposes a fifteen mission allowing to relive the greatest battles of the second world war. Only downside: a cooking shortage of rhythm in the clashes.
