One thing that has been built upon is the gameplay, from the ability to zoom in at a target at any time including when amidst a dogfight, which can really bring the experience up close and personal, to the fantastic replays that are able to be viewed at the end of each Historic Mission. These replays can be viewed from multiple angles and scrolling through these as your mission plays out as you flew it can produce some truly cinematic-like scenes. A great and satisfying addition to the game. The combat itself has also been made far more intense than that in Sturmovik, for e.g. when fighting over enemy ships or airfields, the flak that explodes around you not only rings in your ears but also shakes and rattles your plane and when dogfighting an enemy that is bleeding oil all over your cockpit with someone else on your tail you cannot help but feel the adrenaline pumping.
Some of the Historic Missions can be a little short with the order to return to the airfield or aircraft carrier after only taking out a single ship or a couple of planes but you can always stay in the battle if you so desire to rack up your XP points. That said some of the missions are truly epic and on more than one occassion I have stayed in battle just long enough to limp my smoking and hole-peppered plane away from the fight only to find i still had a good few minutes to fly with Zero's on my tail that i needed to see off with the tail gunner to ensure i made it back to the carrier.
With aircraft skin and decal customisation and extensive online playability this is a great game for a great price and i challenge even those not overly interested in flight combat games not to want to fly just one more mission.
If you enjoyed Il-2 Sturmovik, you will go nuts for this !
B.O.S is bigger, better, and more fun !
What makes this game great is that now you can go on dive-bombing and torpedo launching campaigns, also you can land to repair and restock ammo, this feature was not included on Il-2, it adds to the tension and excitement greatly. Other plus point are that people actually play this game online, and the games are a blast, if a little difficult. Battle damage is vastly improved with now over 100 areas on each plane that can break or go wrong !!!
New planes from over 100 unlockables included in the game are Curtis Kittyhawk, P-38 Lightning, He-162. My only gripe is why didn't they include the P-47 Thunderbolt ? Maybe it did not serve in the specific missions in the game ?
But all in all B.O.S is an amazing game, even worth buying just for the Pearl Harbour counterattack mission in which the player controls x4 Hellcats against Japanese destroyers etc, just epic !
Can't wait for the dlc :)
I ordered Birds of Steel after falling in love with the playable demo I stumbled on in the PS Store. I was looking for an alternative to my games of choice - Pro Evo, Tiger Woods, GTA, COD, and F1.
When i got Birds of Steel I played nothing else for a few months, it is utterly absorbing, if you like a challenge you will love this.
'COD' of the skies in terms of heart pounding on-line combat, not many game get the heart rate up like Birds of Steel! For a change of pace you can fly-out on your own, and practice your flying whilst exploring the several huge maps.
The Russian developers Gaijin have clearly taken a lot of pride in this game, it drips with WW2 authenticity, the graphics and sound are stunning, the game physics are excellent.
Online is fun, but like most games, noobs will find it difficult to cope at first, but the XP rewards (you get some just for taking part) make it worth while, because you can start buying the 100 or so WW2 planes to have in your hangar.
This is a gem of a game, one of my all time favorites.
