IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey


IL-2 Sturmovik has been the gold standard of World War 2 flight sims on the PC for years and now it makes it's debut on the Xbox 360. While I was quite unsure how a hardcore flight sim would translate to a console (control-wise) it seems 505 Games...

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey Review for the XBOX360


Why so serious?

Visuals are great; Three different ways to fly; Lots of unlockables

It's WWII all over again; Inaudible audio; No one online in multiplayer

IL 2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey Review


The latest in the IL 2 Sturmovik series brought to you by developer 1C and published by 505 Games brings in Birds of Prey. It's a game that returns to the World War II front in its simulation glory but ushers in an arcade style for new players. The...

In the long run, you might not want to drop the full price for the game if you’re a first time player. Aside from a few bumps here and there, IL 2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey has certainly earned its wings too fly. You don’t want to miss this if you are...

Review: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (Microsoft Xbox 360)


Unlike previous games in the genre, there is no single pilot telling the story and experiencing the entire war, although they did choose to have one single person voice the “Journal Excerpts” which are shown after each mission is successfully...

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey/Sait..


In this special two-for-one segment, we give Gajin Entertainment's newest console-oriented sim and Saitek's pimped out flightstick a spin and see how well they complement one another - and more importantly, find out how well the uber-complex flight sim...

Realistic graphics and damage modeling; strikes a balance between authentic gameplay without going too over the top with realism; compliments a flightstick configuration

No campaign co-op functionality, or replay modes. Graphical detail comes at a hefty price due to the constant rendering slowdowns

Is the experience worth the purchase price of the game for average console gamers? If you've played Ace Combat and the like and want to try something a bit more involved, that would be a definite yes - even without the flight stick. If on top of that...

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey


Ever since MiG-29 Fulcrum was released in 1998, I have had a taste for combat flight simulator games. The sheer intensity, realism, and scale has the ability to fully immerse you into a supersonic world of chaos

Any fan of combat flight simulators needs to pick up IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey before I finish the following sentence: it is without a doubt the finest World War II game of its genre. However, the average gamer may have a hard time appreciating...

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey review


The Sturmovik games have been a pillar of WW2 air combat ever since the first game was released back in 2001. Against all odds and countless games building on the same concept, the series has been very successful for Russian developer Maddox Games...

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey


This World War II flight sim offers thrilling dogfighting in both simulation and arcade-style gameplay, but it's hampered by frame rate issues and glitches.

Thrilling dogfighting ; Detailed planes and environments ; Plenty of unlockable bonus items ; Different control schemes cater to newcomers and veterans alike

Frame rate drops dramatically during combat ; Limited mission variation ; Various glitches

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey


REVIEW: It'll make a fighter pilot out of you.

Intense, thrilling combat.; Gorgeous, busy, and absolutely huge environments

Cluttered, distracting HUD; bare-bones campaign

How badly does the voice-over guy really, really wish he was Winston Churchill?

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey


The finest flight game on consoles

Flawless simulation ; Bum-clenching dogfights ; Well-designed modes for all skill levels

No co-op ; No mission builder ; Simulation mode near impossible

IL-2 Sturmovik was already the greatest combat flight sim ever made, and Birds of Prey makes it prettier and more manageable without losing what makes Sturmovik... Sturmovik. Even with a handful of unfortunate omissions it’s the best air combat game...
