= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Having been a fan of flight sims since i was a kid i've always looked for realism and deapth in these kind of games so when the creators of the beloved il-2 sturmovik announced they were making a larger game in the same vein i was seriously excited!
Konami and Gaigiin have absoluteley nailed this one to the wall.
the graphics are gorgeous as is the sound (one thing missing from these games is accurate sound, but, the developers went as far as tracking down some of the rareest aircraft in the world and recorded the engine sounds etc for this release). the game is easily played by pilots of all abilities with very simplified settings from the off so dont be put off by the "simulator" monicker. the game can however be played as a very challenging simulator!
the breadth of missions coupled with the huge amount of historically accurate aircraft just add to the allure!
all in all, quite simply the best flight simulator on console ever produced.
