Cliffs of Dover + Team Fusion Mod = EPIC WIN
this game is finally playable and with this mod the best ww2 flight sim out there.
this is not a game like war thunder or Hawx
you have to adjust and put some time to get used to it. its not an arcade shooter in any respect, but after you master the basics its one of the finest and most rewarding ww2 flight sims out there.
in my opinion even far superior to warthunders realism gameplay, because the flightmodel doesnt feel odd - it feels just right! every plane is different and does accordingly to its specs very closely it should have been controlled as far as i ve experienced.
in wt like in wings of prey (same gameengine same gameplay) the flight model is sometimes out of touch with what you would expect a plane will do in the air at all
i have played wt far over 250h and wings of prey (its predecessor) 136h. in CoD/CloD +Team Fusion Mod you have an immersive feeling of wind and weather, you have a full interactive cockpit and even free configurable voice activated commands are supported by third party softwares :) . did i mention full interactive cockkpits? all that named is covered in beautiful graphics. the mod implements not only a new look and feel but even new missions and campaigns.
the only drawback is a missing pacific scenario and with it some of the planes we learned to love and hate in il2 1946. its clear battles over the channel so far, but maybe other mods will fill the gap (hopefully)
if you loved il2 1946 with its mods, you ll definitely like this with the team fusion mod. grab it! it dusted far enough in my library and maybe your too, for sure. last but n ot least!
finally friends are able to join your plane, take a seat in it and control bombers and multiseated planes on missions with you together. yeah you ve read right. :D, finally together.
with the new mod and communitywork there are up to 255 player battles over the channel possible and a waste amount of bomber, scout, attack, raidmissions to be played for some tons of hours with your friends.
just do yourself a favour and molest the next search engine for "cliffs of dover + team fusion mod" or youtube.
graphics will look like a charm too.
Runs smoothly at max settings with GTX 670 i5 2600k 8 GB Ram Win 7 64bit
i dont do reviews often but this game deserves a second chance :) in my opinion
i would rather recommend to wait until il2 battles of stalingrad (IL2 BOS release Oct 2014) is patched to the max before putting a ton of money in an unoptimized product, overpriced DLC planes and spent the waiting time with Cliffs of Dover +TF Mod in favour.
