    I love air combat games, especially from the World War 2 genre but sadly most of this style of gameing on the XBox 360 has been pretty disappointing apart from the superb 'IL-2 Sturmovik-Birds of Prey', which came out a couple of years ago.
    Well, those wonderful people behind IL-2 have now worked their magic once again with this new simulator, which is way ahead of the previous game. There is over 100 aircrfat to fly, with masses of missions, online gameplay featuring various dynamic campaigns, single missions and a mission editor which you can use time and time again to create your own versions of gameplay and all to play online, co-op or solo.
    The graphics are superb, and the 'Replay' function just absolutely blew me away. It is a truly superb addition to the game. All in all, if you love air combat you will absolutely fall in love with this game.
    Five stars...definately!

    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.

    After playing countless hours of wings of prey on the pc it was going to take something very special to get me away from it, and Birds of Steel does just that! This is probably the most realistic experience you can get on the console in this day and age,
    Theres lots of birds to choose from and each one is true to its real life counterpart with model/physics as close as possible.
    Its defiantly nice to see these planes restored to there full glory and i cant wait to see what DLC surprises we will get from the developers. 5/5

    What can I say, my PC is dead, so on impulse I searched around for an XBOX combat flight simulator and luckily found this had just been released. It far exceeds my expectations. I had assumed it would be really dumbed down - but no, there is a great deal of depth in this title, but it's very flexible in how it can be played, and has a strong focus on quick action which I like. I appreciate Authentic touches like the Stuka has a glass panel in the floor to allow you to look down between your feet to spot your target perfectly before your dive bombing attack, but if you want it easier, you can use third-person view to follow your plane and use the bombing HUD (just far to easy for my own preference). I tend to use first person cockpit view...most planes have a cockpit that has working (probably authentic) dials. In offline and online play - it can be played in simplified/realistic/simulator modes (and custom mode). In simulator mode, only the cockpit dials let you determine airspeed, altitude and RPM etc. This is quite unique on XBOX. I do love online play in simulator mode - having to watch all angles through the canopy for other planes and bouncing someone with a diving attack, If that isn't to your taste, well at the other extreme is simplified mode, were it's less work to control your aircraft. Still not quite arcade easy/simple but the aircraft behavior is more like a combat sim like ACE 6 - and other aircraft are normally killed with a single direct hit (rather than shot apart bit by bit, as realistically and awesomely required in other modes). Enemy aircraft are tagged with clear friend/foe ID and distance away making the action more intense (but that's not available in simulator mode as such technology wasn't invented in WWII!).Read more ›

    "Birds of Steel" is the second WWII Flight Sim game to be released on the Consul (originally on the PC) by the Russian game company IL2 Sturmovik, the first was "Birds of Prey" And I have to say this game is awesome.. As far as WWII flight/fighter Sims go this one is on the top of the list. There isn't many games out there on the market still today (with the exception of "World of Tanks" that let you choose to play as the Axis powers, in particularly the Germans. Now Just because some of us want to have the option to play a game from the Germans point of view, it doesn't make any of us a Nazi, or pro Nazi, it just means that we appreciate the fact that during the second war the Germans had some of the best Fighters, Tanks and AFV's on the field & in the Air! And now we get to know the awesome power of being in control of some of those powerful machines.

    Well now we can add Birds of Prey to that list of games that lets you get in the pilots seat of a WWII German Flying machine ;)

    I have actually also just gone and spent £1200 on building a gaming pc so i can play the new IL2-Sturmovik game Battle of Stalingrad, which is the next game along from this one.. But only available on the PC.
