Probably the best flying sim on the XBox 360,
This review is from: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
There aren't many flying games for the 360, and the ones that do exist are often a bit over-the-top or arcade-style (Ace Combat anyone?).
This one however is rather good. The different difficulty modes can be a god-send once you get frustrated with stalling your aircraft all the time and being unable to bring it out of a stall, resulting in your aircraft exploding a big ball of fire in the fields of Kent. However this can just result in you playing through the game in 'easy arcade mode', which to be honest, is just too easy. Enemy planes seem a bit 'passive' to be honest I only found myself being shot at a handful of times despite taking on dozens of enemy aircraft at a time.
I ended up putting this game down and playing something a bit more gripping, but I'm pretty confident I'll be going back to it.
