The best flight sim out there!

I have a copy of I2:1946 already and patched it up to Version 4.13. I bought this as a backup. Their are a lot of addons and other features you can get at the Mission 4 Today website to give the game even more variety than it has now. The game has a steep learning curve though and you might want to buy an older flight sim to play before tackling this one, but well worth the money if you can get one cheap enough.Read full review...

Not what I expexted.

Installed it twice. Every time the same results.
The 1946 part does not work. No jets are available to fly.
PC system is absolute compatible with the game. I can fly Il2 Sturmovic, only.
I am disappointed.Read full review...

WW2 flight sim, motor managment, cock pit lights, nav lights and landing lights

The early version of what is in my opinion is the most devoted team production flight sim. This early version exceeds other popular sims featuring warbirds of WW2. The detail is quite immersive, with many function parts to the flight mod. Engine management required at highest skill settings, including such as fuel mixture, prop pitch, radiator flaps and more. The pilot chooses his lighting, turn on cock pit instrument lights. The landing lights and navigation lights fully controllable, and used in-game online to communicate to other pilots trying to locate an individuals in a swarm.
The many models to choose from, the included scenario rounds, and the ability to create your own missions keeps this game from going stale. The community continues to grow as new games are added to the Sturmovic series continues to add new battles, and refines the paints and flight models.
You cannot go wrong to buy this game if you want a WW2 flight sim.

Watch it.

The game is a collection of all incarnations of IL-2 Sturmovik with expansion packs adding some more extra planes. Developers dub it "seven years of war, seven years of development, one great sim". It delivers. It's really the best WW-II combat simulator until now (12/2010) covering all theatres of war, Eastern, Western fronts and Pacific. Avoid the DVD case, get the US boxed edition that includes the 400+ page manual of great value, with photos, details of all aircraft, various info and all sorts of great historical stuff. Enjoy, and keep an eye for the upcoming Battle of Britain from the same makers.Read full review...

GREAT GAME BARGAIN

IT IS A SMART THING TO KEEP OLDER TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS WINDOWS XP (ORIGINAL) VCR's DVD PLAYERS. BUYING NEW PRODUCTS IS VERY EXPENSIVE $ AND THE OLDER PRODUCTS ARE VERY REASONABLE. THAT SAID THIS GAME IS A GREAT BARGAIN! XBOX, WII, PS3 ARE ALL GOOD I GUESS BUT WHY BE FORCED INTO LIMITED CHEAP TEMPORARY GAME PLATFORMS THAT WILL FORCE YOU INTO BUYING MORE STUFF. THIS GAME NEW AMOUNTED TO OVER $100 EASY.Read full review...

Great WWII Combat SIM

I had flown the original IL-2 Sturmovik many years ago prior to trying IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 and think that this combat simulator developed into a great WWII combat flight simulator. The choices of aircraft for the numerous countries represented are mind numbing. The environmentals such as the clouds, fog, haze, time of year, time of day are amazing. Compared to Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator, IL-2: 1946 beats it hands down. Just make sure that your computer is compatable with the software requirements and have fun. Also make sure that your joystick is compatable...my Logitec Extreme 3D PRO works good with this game. I know of many people that have become multiplayer online addicts because this game due primarily because it is so realistic and the variety of aircraft available to fly. The only drawback is there is no hardcopy "operator manual". There is an electronic PDF copy of "Pacific Fighters" which does provide tips on keyboard control assignments, tactics, and other details to properly load and use the game. For those looking for a good WWII combat simulator with the option to start a campaign, fly a quick mission, or design a mission/campaign of your own this game is for you. For the price you cannot go wrong. You will find "new" and innovative aircraft from that war are not found in other combat simulators. The designers did their home work and their dedication to design a realistic and detailed game shows. But there is always room for improvement...and hopefully they will continue to improve with patches and follow-on add-on software.Read full review...

Favorite by far!

Excellent game. Been playing il2 for nearly 10 yrs now. With this cd you'll need to down load the latest patches; 4.08, 4.09 & 4.10 to be fully updated with new planes etc, but it's well worth the time. You can find the patches at www.warbirdsofprey.org. It's a free comunity effort with thousands of gamers world wide helping to develope each new expansion of the game. I've purchased other games with more elaborate graphics etc but they are no where as user friendly, take too long to load and regen and then they want you to pay for expansions etc. Almost all of the poor reviews I've read about il2 are simply from lack of experience with the game, which can easily be solved with a little patience at the fourums. Enjoy!Read full review...

Still at the top of it's class.

This is still one of the best WWII flight sims out there. It isn't to demanding on your system either. The graphics aren't quite up to todays standards. But there are so many different aircraft available to fly that it really doesn't bother me that much. There are also several websites where you can download mods for the game so even more aircraft are flyable. Several mods also do improve the graphics as well as the sounds. If you have any interest in WWII aerial combat I wouldn't hesitate buying this game.Read full review...

Amazing............................ BUY IT!

Everyone has at one point or time heard the IL-2 series by Oleg Maddox unless they live under a rock or something. If its your first time out in the sunlight and your interested in the mother of all WW2 flight sims. GET IT! Realism settings are from hard-core 20 step procedures to a simple keyboard click for starting the engine. You can have a real arcade game or a very well detailed realistic one depending on the settings. The vast amount of aircraft is crazy just, and the latest patch 4.09m came out only last year so this game is not some old retro deal. HyperLobby provides great online play and some servers are usually full with around 30-40 people it seems like 24/7. A great, active community is out there if you need help and yours truly. If you've taken the time to read this whole meaningless review, instead of reading the title this game is for you. Since you obviously are that dedicated what's stopping you?Read full review...
