When this game released it was a bit of a disappointment with too many issues to list effecting most areas of the game. However over time this was patched both officially, and unofficially (through mod projects like Team Fusion) and this game became actually playable. And it has to be said that for the Battle of Britain Theatre of WW2 specifically you won’t find a better Flight Simulation title as of writing this (it’s a good game to move on to from playing other BOB games which have become graphically dated by now).

In terms of content, this game comes with several flyable aircraft, about 12 - excluding the vast selection of variants of each of these. There are several more ‘AI’ aircraft included, that you could also make flyable with modifications. The in-game map covers the South Coast of England (up to and including London), the English Channel, and Northern France. On highest graphical settings the game is still nice to look at and immerse yourself in the game-world.

So if you are interested in WW2 combat in the skies over Britain, and want to fly British, German and Italian aircraft then you should certainly get this title. But I would say really anyone interested in aviation as a whole may like this title as it currently sells for only £9.99 and there’s certainly hours of usage you can get from it - even if this involves solo flight without combat (if combat isn't something you are interested in).

On a final note I will say this game is unlikely to run at stock without patches and 3rd party Team Fusion mod. This game is compatible with Windows 10 with these mods and patches – but will not run without them from experience.

Don't get Cliffs of Dover!

If you want a top-tier flight sim with boogie-all content, get Battle of Stalingrad. In terms of presentation, user interface, and overall atmosphere & immersion, it's just that much better in every regard. Both have that great, classic Il-2 'feeling of flight', and I'll probably keep CoD kicking around on my hard drive for a while, but for your modern-day Il-2(tm) fix Battle of Stalingrad is where it's at.
Both are great flight sims that focus on WW2, but Cliffs of Dover is *severely* annoying to (attempt to) use & enjoy. Stubborn user interface, unfinished everywhere, avoid it in favour of BoS.
If you already have CoD, get all of the Team Fusion mods (they're up to 4.312 I believe) and it'll be that much better. Both sims just seem to have an unfinished feel to them, unlike Il-2 1946, but in CoD it's painfully apparent.

If you want to start 'fresh', just get Battle of Stalingrad and save yourself the aggravation. ;)

Single player is practically just a row of uninspiring missions .. so you want to go online , but :

-Dont buy it unless you want hours of frustration and like being target practice for some that have thousand hours or more in this

- partly toxic community , especially from the "red" (britain) side , who like to make fun of newbies and generally being mean

- many "statistics-♥♥♥♥♥s" (also mostly reds) who like strafing like mad , despite being already 2 : 1 in pilots often

- unrealistic modeling of negative-g effect on spits and hurris , short negative g is modeled so the engine cuts out,but IMMEDIATELY comes back once g-load is positive,no sputtering or complete starvation like mentioned in the trials against the 109 done by the RAF. Long neg g doesnt have consequences like "hydro-lock" (flooding of the engine with fuel and therefor damaging conrods and valves) or detonation...so basically the main weakness of the first spits and hurris has practically no consequences for the reds...and you can see them frequently pushing long negative g to evade or dive behind you

- spitfires overheating was "fixed", now bugs in the 109 flightmodel regarding radiators , which pop between 3k / 5k meters without warning or being overheated ... yeah...fixed...lol...oh and yeah : rads pop just because the coolant is temporarily overheated , rendering your engine dead within 5 minutes , because ALL coolant will go away... lol..never heard of a blow-off safety valve eh?

- ability to fly full boost/ata for all eternity without consequences , only rpms matter ...

- questionable behaviour of energy loss / acceleration on spitfires , hard turning hasnt that much meaning if the plane accelerates better then a modern f1 car ...

- unrealistic online servers mostly.. too much available spits for reds , despite there being only a third of available fighters at the time ... only SOW does this right last time i checked and thats a whole other can of worms , because if you want better machines u HAVE to be in a squad .

-dont even try to critizise ... all the red fanboys will eagerly try to silence you or you just get banned

- unrealistic spotting... how far away can you see a fighterplane in good conditios in real life? 20kms? in this be prepared to watch out for tiny grey pixels visible at 11 km or less...and against the ground you need a micoscope or a 50" screen , especially for the brits , because their brown blends in better somehow?

Dont get me wrong , TeamFusion did a decent job patching this game in a playable state , but since the source is still in other hands and the code is totally undocumented , there is only so much they can do... waiting for the next big patch , but i think its a waste of time trying to fix this mess especially if the red whiners get their will, like they got with the overheating (oh so you had to manage your engine? look at the 109E3 and learn to fly it ...then we can talk about managing! nowadays in a spit you just set propitch once and be done with it,since the older prop version are nowhere to be seen online,only 100 oct Rotols (DH5-20 anyone? 83 oct?) why? because that will put the brits at a disadvantage? face it , thats how it was... either you want realism or you go full ♥♥♥♥♥♥ and only make e4n and spit 2 available...

Edit one day later : the fanboys started to thumb down this review in an attmpt to hide it...like i said...toxic fanbase...

IL-2 CloD is a great realistic WW2 combat flight sim, and i really recommend it!

It had a bad reputation at the start, because few reasons: it wasn’t ready when it was released, there wasn't really a manual (just a general information manual), off course it had to fight the original IL-2 series, which had much more planes/maps, which is natural situation with new series. and personally, but maybe more peoples also had a similar problem with CloD as me with the performance of the sim, my laptop and Desktop PC i had then, was not powerful enough to run it, and it was completely unplayable. (only 2 years after it came out i could play it with the PC i have today).

Because all of those reasons the public opinion was very negative for this sim, and i assume the sales impacted by that, so, eventually, while the developers worked on the second sim in this new series, the company shut this series down and we left with only the first module. but, IMO, they had to give it a chance, it’s take time for peoples move to a new sim.
After few years they started the current IL-2 Series(BoS), which is, btw, also great.

So, CloD isn't continuing developed officially, but! fortunately, a modding team called "Team Fusion" continuing to develop this great sim. they already improved the sim very much, and they're still improving the sim, and will add new planes, sounds etc..in the future. so, if you are interested in this sim, those mods are a must. And today, thx to the community, we have many guides and manuals.

About the sim itself, IL-2 CloD focus on the Battle of Britain theater, in a very detailed way, the map of the channel is large and pretty. the visuals are good and realistic.for a first sim in a series, there are plenty of flyable planes, fighters and bombers.

The physics are good, much more detailed and realistic than the original IL-2 Series. you have the feeling of real flying, you can still fly with missing a major part of the wings, aerodynamic forces are modeled very nice, spins and all what we expected from this kind of sims.

The damage model is also very detailed, the modeling of the construction of the plane is very in depth, the resolution of the hits is great. also, fire model is great, in which, a fire can start at one point in the skin of the plane and it spreads slowly to other areas in the skin of the plane. the systems damage model is also very detailed, almost every sub system can be damaged by many reasons.

The systems of the planes are modeled very nice, and it’s a clickable cockpit with the mouse. There are a very few minor systems that are not modelled, for instance, the battery which is always on and you cannot control it, but the most systems are modeled, and in a great detail! The plane feels real, the gauges are shaking, the ADI is losing calibration by maneuvers, you can turn on and off the gunsight, you can change the range/target size of the gunsight etc..engine management is great, you can over revving the engine and the engine will damage, off course there is an over heat, under heat etc..
The configuration of the weapons and ammo is very detailed, you can choose which guns to put in the planes, convergence, which ammo belts, and even make your personal ammo belts.

There are many players online, for instance ATAG server is very popular.

there is some minor graphic downsides, such as the animation of the controls of the planes which aren't smooth, and the mirrors dosen't work, but, those not so a big deal IMO, and i think that working mirrors are on the roadmap of Team Fusion.

For summary, a great WW2 combat flying sim. IMO, this with DCS and the new IL-2 series are complete each other, and are the best sims for realistic WW2 combat flying sims.

What an awful game.

Wonderful that the modding community fixed the garbage left behind but the end result is still a poor excuse for a game.

One side has a fairly normal career mode while the other has more of a campaign, scripted mode.

After you buy this be prepared to then download 4gb in patches that have to:
Apply patch
Run game
Repeat 5 times.

at release it was a mess; a deeply flawed, unfinished product.
i'd recommend all but the most dedicated simmers to stay away,

however after Team Fusion's spectacular fixes and updates,
it's certainly playable and can provide hours of enjoyment...
but it will still require some user patience and tweaking though.

get Team Fusion, without it there's no point to this title.

if it's on sale as it frequently is, and you're a simmer, consider it.

Bought game and it never did launch off of STEAM. STEAM is a joke. Will never buy or recommend to ANYONE. If you buy a game it should run. I shouldnt have to spend hours and hours attempting to configure and download and tweak software to work, Isnt that what I paid for? Joke Joke Joke and STEAM is a bait and switch rip off scheme.

Okay, hopefully you're reading this in the most recent order? So if you're you'll see this as one of the latest and most up-to-date reviews?

Firstly a little about me. My username is Mysticpuma and I am one of the team of modders who go by the name "Team Fusion".

Since the simulation was abandoned by the developers (in a pretty bugged state) our modding group of community members, all flight-sim enthusiasts, have been fixing, patching and adding to the simulation COMPLETELY FOR FREE so that players will get to experience the true version of the software that should have been released.

IL2: Cliffs of Dover is a masterpeice in the flightsim genre BUT due to financial constraints was released in a working but bugged condition. Since that release there were two official updates from the developers (applied automatically when installed using Steam) and these fixed a host of issue....but not all!

As I mentioned before, Team Fusion are all members (unpaid) of the Flight Sim community who have given 1000's if not 100's of 1000's of hours of their time so that the Simulation becomes one of, if not the, ultimate WW2 Combat Flight Sim.

The detail that has been created, improved, fixed, upgraded has been vast and this also includes multi-player netcode, now allowing huge online battles to take place.

Our team are currently working on completely new aircraft, completely new flyable aircraft (and variants of existing), shipping, vehicles, mission builder objects, effects, sound, new map(s), a new map tool builder and much, much more........and will be given to the community COMPLETELY FOR FREE!!! No paid expansion, no micro in-game charges, the patches, fixes and updates are FREE!! All made by community members for community members.

Whilst I could sit and type for hours about the changes and fixes here are just a few features and video links that should give an idea of the level of depth Team Fusion have and are going to in an effort to give you the Flight Sim enthusiast, the best experience possible:

Firstly a link to our videos on the VImeo page (we have now moved to Youtube). These should give you an idea of the level of detail in the software, what has been updated and where we are heading:

https://vimeo.com/teamfusion/videos

Next our Youtube Channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/TeamFusionMod/videos


If you don't have time to scour through all the video here are links to 3-4 highligh clips:

A Taste of Fusion. This video clip gives an oversight of the history of the software and what happened since it's release (don't worry....it's not a documentary!) :

https://vimeo.com/88650686

Some of the effects work:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf4zV2gWL-c

and this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBxOQe99Vv8

New ships (and features):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58dq-Hpye1A

New aircraft:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzymlVgixcU


In finishing I'll just say that hopefully this information is of use to you. Yes the sim was abandoned due to financial constraints....but for just a tenner, once you apply the Team Fusion (FREE, did I mention FREE?) patches the software is completely playable on Windows 7 (64-bit) upwards including Windows 10. It has a thousands of new features, fixes, effects, etc, etc and we are also (and have a working version) looking to utilise Oculus Rift support after upgrading the software to use DirectX 11.

AND IT'S FREE!!!!!!

For more news and updates the best place to visit is the ATAG Server where Team Fusion are based and can be found here:

http://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/forum/

The Team Fusion Facebook page is here:

https://www.facebook.com/teamfusionmod

There are also some other great servers and forums out there including the Air Combat Group and Storm of War and these use this software with the Team Fusion patches and regluarly have hundreds of online players taking part:

http://aircombatgroup.co.uk/forum/index.php

http://www.stormofwar.org/phpBB3/

If you take the time to go through the videos and visit the forums linked to you'll see the software is far from abandoned, it is true to say that the 'Vanilla' version is bugged (but not unplayable, just frustrating), BUT, by downloading the FREE Team Fusion patches, you will have access to one of the best WW2 Combat Flight Sims available and that is still be worked on, updated, having new maps and features added......AND ALL FOR FREE.

Team Fusion are made up of our community and are building and creating this for our community.

Cheers, Mysticpuma

As a long time IL-2 1946 player, I'd always shied away from this game having read reviews. I have to say for ten dollars, half that during a good sale, this game is plenty worth it. The game plays like a smoothed and more realistic 1946, I'm very pleased with what the team has created here. The game is breathtakingly beautiful and as always the combat is exhilarating. The content is a little limited but let's not forget IL-2 1946 is a compendium of several titles along with patches; in addition to a plethora of community made content. I have not personally run into any crashing yet (Windows 7 x64), the game supports Track IR and spanning across multiple monitors. Certainly a worthy addition to a flight simulator enthusiast’s or fans of the IL-2 series collections.

This game is unplayable in it's purchase form. The developers produced a game that promised to be great and could not even be played. I bought this game when it first came out and it was bad even at it's lowest settings. I put it aside and forgot about it. The develpers bailed out and ran with the money. Then Team Fusion came along and picked up the ball and with several patches have made the game playable, but there are still many bugs. I rate this game as poor at best. I play the game daily, but only because of the fixes that Team Fusion provided. The game is very frustrating when it comes to saving user profiles for different planes and gun loadouts, sometimes they save and sometimes they don't. The game is more in a developers mode than in a finished retail product. Buy this game only if you are sharp enough to install the fixes provided by the good guys of Team Fusion.

If you are a fan of WW2 planes and of the battle of Britain take this game. It the best multi-player experience that is out there and by far. I am a sim enthusiast and I own them all, Cliffs of Dover with the Team Fusion Mod installed beat them by miles. It is tough, the learning curve is steep but this sim so rewarding. With a very good 50 vs 50 players server on ATAG and excellent seasonal immersive persistent campaign on Storm of War and many more do yourself a favor and come and join us online

Downloading the Team Fusion patches for this game is a must. My favourite combat flight simulator with a great representation of the Battle of Britain. The TF patches also add a Luftwaffe campaign as well which I am having an absolute blast on!
There's nothing like going on a sortie in a BF-109E-4 and feeling the adrenaline rushing through your body as you prepare for battle. Once you cross over the English Channel and see the White Cliffs you know you're flying into a sh*t storm.

The game is a must with the Team Fusion patches, otherwise, it's a mediocre combat flight simulator with little content. I would personally recommend buying it from somewhere else though as the price on Steam is a little steep,

Great game! Must DL the patch from team fusion to play the game. It adds a lot and soon the community will be adding new planes including the F2F.

http://theairtacticalassaultgroup.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=6

That's the website to get info on the game including the download.
I've played often with 40-70 players and it's a blast. Nothing like feeling the heat when youre trying to dive down on some fighters while you have to manage the prop pitch and radiators. Complex engine management is far more realistic than the previous IL2.

The large selection of flyable aircraft is one of my favourite parts of this game.. For an older game I expected bad graphics and sound, but with the Team Fusion mods for free online, this game looks and sounds extremely realistic ! Honestly it is nearly on par with the newest IL-2, but has more planes and is moddable (Especially important when it comes to Sound MODs).. I find the default IL-2 engine and weapon sounds to be tinny and wimpy-wimpy-wimpy, but with the TF Mod and other 3rd party modders the guns sound hefty-hefty-hefty and the engines sound so good you just want to do fly-bys all day long; especially in the BF-109.. I definitely recommend this game - even at full 10$ you won't find a better WWII sim for this little cost.. Happy flying,

IL-2 CloD is a great realistic WW2 combat flight sim, and i really recommend it!

It had a bad reputation at the start, because few reasons: it wasn’t ready when it was released, there wasn't really a manual (just a general information manual), off course it had to fight the original IL-2 series, which had much more planes/maps, which is natural situation with new series. and personally, but maybe more peoples also had a similar problem with CloD as me with the performance of the sim, my laptop and Desktop PC i had then, was not powerful enough to run it, and it was completely unplayable.

Because all of those reasons the public opinion was very negative for this sim, and i assume the sales impacted by that, so, eventually, while the developers worked on the second sim in this new series, the company shut this series down and we left with only the first module. but, IMO, they had to give it a chance, it’s take time for peoples move to a new sim.
After few years they started the current IL-2 Series(BoS), which is, btw, also great.

So, CloD isn't continuing developed officially, but! fortunately, a modding team called "Team Fusion" continuing to develop this great sim. they already improved the sim very much, and they're still improving the sim, and will add new planes, sounds etc..in the future. so, if you are interested in this sim, those mods are a must. And today, thx to the community, we have many guides and manuals.

About the sim itself, IL-2 CloD focus on the Battle of Britain theater, in a very detailed way, the map of the channel is large and pretty. the visuals are good and realistic.for a first sim in a series, there are plenty of flyable planes, fighters and bombers.

The physics are good, much more detailed and realistic than the original IL-2 Series. you have the feeling of real flying, you can still fly with missing a major part of the wings, aerodynamic forces are modeled very nice, spins and all what we expected from this kind of sims.

The damage model is also very detailed, the modeling of the construction of the plane is very in depth, the resolution of the hits is great. also, fire model is great, in which, a fire can start at one point in the skin of the plane and it spreads slowly to other areas in the skin of the plane. the systems damage model is also very detailed, almost every sub system can be damaged by many reasons.

The systems of the planes are modeled very nice, and it’s a clickable cockpit with the mouse. There are a very few minor systems that are not modelled, for instance, the battery which is always on and you cannot control it, but the most systems are modeled, and in a great detail! The plane feels real, the gauges are shaking, the ADI is losing calibration by maneuvers, you can turn on and off the gunsight, you can change the range/target size of the gunsight etc..engine management is great, you can over revving the engine and the engine will damage, off course there is an over heat, under heat etc..
The configuration of the weapons and ammo is very detailed, you can choose which guns to put in the planes, convergence, which ammo belts, and even make your personal ammo belts.

There are many players online, for instance ATAG server is very popular.

there is some minor graphic downsides, such as the animation of the controls of the planes which aren't smooth, and the mirrors dosen't work, but, those not so a big deal IMO, and i think that working mirrors are on the roadmap of Team Fusion.

For summary, a great WW2 combat flying sim. IMO, this with DCS and the new IL-2 series are complete each other, and are the best sims for realistic WW2 combat flying sims.

As long as you have the Team Fusion update, this is one of the greatest WWII flight sims of all time.

Just wanting to add in that once one adds in the Team Fusion mods - this thing not only runs in Win10 but is just awesome. Very cool sim that unfortunately took the community to keep it current, but wow do they do a good job!

I played the original IL2 from it's release right up until IL2 1946, some of my best times ever in pc simming/gaming, most of my flying was done online. I, like everyone else eagerly awaited this game and I, like everyone else was very dissapointed when it came out. I was also a little played out by all my time in the earlier series so I left the game alone,, until now.

Team Fusion have taken it upon themselves to fix the game and in the main they have achieved this. For sure there are still small bugs but not gameplay breaking one's, this game is the real deal for simmers, consol heads and quick fixers need not apply.

It's a wonderfull game/sim, with a some effort needed from the player.

My own rant here. I play Falcom 4 BMS as well and that had a very similar history to this game. When it came out it was a pile of buggy cr%p but you could see the scope. The developers dropped it very soon after and it was a commercial flop. Cue the people. An incredible amount of work (and time the sim came out in 98) and it is now what it should have been at release. Had it been released in this condition at that time I have no doubt that it would have been a massive hit and I sadly think the same for CLOD. The developers followed the cash and did other things.

Clod is different inasmuch 1c had already gone the route of excellence with the first IL2,, and as a way to approach how to make/market a game how did that work out ? How many expansions, how many accolades ? Massive success by any standards but you wave them greenbacks around and attitudes quickly change.

Sorry, do I sound bitter lol,, I am, I have seen this corner of pc gaming get smaller and smaller and games like this are now as rare as rocking horse sh%t.

Buy it and enjoy some real vision and skill in a game and not the mind numbingly and ultimately shallow and boring garbage that most game producers make nowedays (yes including you here FD) ..

Though the newest patch fixes many issues, the vanilla (stock) version of the game is still riddled with a few bugs and performance mishaps. Get the Team Fusion patches and this game turns into one of the best WW2 flight sims out there - definitely that I have played so far.

An excellent flight sim at a STEAL of a price! Get this game and download the ATAG mod from their website. Then hop in and enjoy the ride! If you are a flight sim fan, the joystick kind, then you will not be let down.
