This sim is the best WWII filight sim I have ever flown and I have over 25 years experience in flight sims from way back in the 80's until now. The game in itself had some issues that made alot of people put this sim back on the shelve (I almost did as well) But the community rallied, a mod team was formed under the name Team Fusion and this sim came back to life and went way above and beyond it's expectations. The realism and immersion are top notch and the community is one of the best in the gaming world and very helpful and patient with newbies. Even now in early 2014 the game is still being modded by TF and getting better all the time with new content, updated and better fps friendly graphics partical and visual effects. The flight models and damage models have been revised and more historical and are still getting better with each new patch. You can now take control of tanks and ground pound (wip) and the next mod release (coming very soon) you will be able to take control of flak guns and defend your base from enemy stafing it. This game will still be here in ten years no doubt and just keep getting better as it goes. The ATAG(AIR TACTICAL ASSAULT GROUP) server is the best host for this sim and there are always people on it willing to help newcomers out and get started. I have over 1200 hous on this awesome sim and will probably get to 10,000 plus in the next 5 to 10 years. And the best thing is the price is right, for under $20 you can't go wrong. Although now with the TF mods it sould be worth at least $60 and probably more. I definitely recommend this sim to any flight enthusiest out there.

This game is the best WW2 sim out there. With ATAG's forum and server for online play and TF's free modification/patches this game is as good as it gets and will keep getting better.

I skipped this game when it first came out for obivous reasons, if you were like me give it another shot, you won't regret it.

It just simply doesn't work on win8. I installed a mod what made it work but then it still doesn't work like how it should work. All in all you shouldn't buy this game when you have windows 8.

This is by far one of the BEST WW2 flight sims out there.

Alright, first things first. The Metascore is low, that is because when the game was released it was extremely buggy and the developers couldnt be bothered to fix it. Then a cool group of people developed the Team Fusion patch which fixes the entire game. There is a big community around this game and the servers have people in most of the time (Usually around the 40 mark).

Again, this is by far one of the best flight sims for ww2 I've ever played. Also, the learning curve isnt as steep as the one in DCS, making the game enjoyable for newcomers (You still need to get your head around the basics).

10/10

Best Sim i have ever played thanks to the Team Fusion mod! Flying MP on the ATAG server is addicting fun! Highly recommend the game for any flight sim fans out there. Scores are low only because of horrible release.

This is the best WWII combat flight sim out there at present..BAR NONE...It is the most complete WWII fighter pilot experience you will get....I have tried other WWII flight sims on the market and they are all very arcade like...This is the REAL DEAL...I have flown this sim over 1000 hours and I am still amazed at how real it feels, how good the landscape looks, the flight characteristics, the damage models, it is breathtaking!..and it is still being improved

When this sim originally came out it had flaws that put a lot of people off and gave bad reviews on sites like this. Unfortunately this has marred what is now quite literaly a brilliant sim. Its taken a while (2 years actually) but for those of us who gave this sim a second chance we have not been disappointed. For that reason I feel that I should make people aware of what they are missing if they don't get this game, but don't take my word for it..checkout the recent youtube videos..

The online experience is probably the best part of this game...To fight in the skies over Kent and the Pas-de-Calais in real time, scan the skies for enemy contacts, wing with a buddy and engage a deadly foe, it is exhilarating. You can change your shells to whatever shells were available at the time, you can change convergence settings so that your bullets hit exactly the same point, you fuel up to what amount you need which will influence your aircrafts balance and weight. The dogfight tactics are still the same from 1940, the flight characteristics are different for each aircraft and at different altitudes too....You can also fly bomber runs in 1940 bombers and take control of every manned gunning position as you try to fend off hungry attackers.

Even for new players there is plenty of help on youtube with 5 minute startup procedures, and how to dogfight in every flyable aircraft, you can be up and flying in just a few minutes. The best online server is ATAGS and they also have a website (link at bottom of this review)to checkout which is a must for new flyers with questions. Most importantly a large group of WWII aircraft enthusiast program techs have taken this sim and are constantly modifying it for a more complete experience. They are called the Team Fusion (TF) and they also use the ATAGS website as their base for discussion. The issues that once surrounded this game have now been resolved and the TF are now dedicating their time to making game enhancing changes like contrails and reflective cockpit canopys. Thats where this sim is at now.

If you want to fly online with us (and I would highly recommend the dogfighting online as its so much more full on than offline)...you must install the patches that can be found on the ATAGS website..and also for any questions...link to website here:

So my advice is to ignore any review earlier than 2013 as Cliffs Of Dover is as different now to when it was released as night and day and is nowhere near comparable with those early reviews.
