About 10 years back I was really buissy flying IL-2 Sturmovik. I spent all my free time after work on it for many years.
But one important thing happend to me. I dicovered 3D. I flew FSX for a couple of years because that SIM was close to exellent regarding 3D. If the SIM/game didnt have 3D, I did not buy it.
I have read a lot about this SIM before I bought it. No one said anything about 3D.
Anyhow, this SIM beats even FSX as I see it. ALL 3D works almost exellent, (except around the widows in clouds, and waypoint-icons are not yet fixed), but I hope thouse small bugs soon will dissapear.
After flying IL-2 Sturmovik for all these years, this SIM finally appear. As I see it, other WW2
SIM´s are far from this class.
If you, the reader, have been convinced that a SIM/game is not worth spending time on if it don´t have exellent 3D, this is (when the the above mentioned bugs have bee sorted out), the best WW2-SIM that you can buy today.
I have heard some talks about the flight models. After all these years, flying IL-Sturmovik for hours most nights, I cant say that there is something wrong with this SIM-models, (maybe a little bit harder to land if anything :)
And when the Campaign came out, I didn´t even try it for a couple of days. Starting in the air was not real to me. But when I finally tryed a few missions, I was amazed at the way is was done. After just a few missions, take off was also from the ground, (and that was not as easy as it was in Olegs very exellent IL-2 Sturmovik SIM´s).
I just finally want to say, if the work on this SIM is kept up as in Rise of Flight, I don´t think there will be any real competition for a long time, regarding exellent WW2 SIM´s.
