Very Good

This is the best flight game on consoles. For 2009, the graphics look terrific and the game is a lot of fun. I am a history nerd but I never knew much about ww2 aircraft. Not gonna lie, this game peaked my interest and got me into learning about it. Some of the missions are a little slow but overall this game is well made. Training mode is fun too, it kinda like a mission editor mode. Also, Birds of Steel, the sequel, is a good game to get which is like Birds of Prey 1.5 with more planes and finally cockpit views for German aircraft!

Intense, huge and fast paced

About time someone brought out a WWII flying game that actually feels realistic. The missions are huge, the graphics are fantastic (towns actually look like towns with buildings and trees etc), and the AI is challenging. The aircraft all look amazing, and the damage model is SICK. Online play makes for something a bit different as well. Gameplay has something for everyone, and its refreshing that you actually have to dogfight into a firing position and not just lock and fire missiles. If you love old school planes and find WWII interesting, you need this game.

One of the best flight sim based games

Terrific graphics which have ground features based on actual maps. After initial "training flights" the player develops a level of skill which is then applied to "sorties". Thoroughly recommend this game, which requires a pro-active approach in terms of predicting the opponents tactics and adapting to the opponents behaviour - gripping stuff!

IL-2 Sturmovik PS3 version

If you've played the demo, you'll pretty much know what you're getting into with this game. The good - graphics are great, realistic damage models, varying skill levels, varied missions. Bombing missions were fun ! The bad - You can land your plane after a mission, but you can't take off before a mission. I also don't like the way you can free-look, by pressing and holding down the R3 joystick. It always slips and you revert back to the front view. Overall this game is a blast to play, and gives me a lot of respect for those pilots who flew these planes in WW2. 8.5/10

WW2 Air combat simulator

One of the best World War Two air combat systems for simulated flight and various missions. Fly fighters, bombers and ground attack aircraft in solo play or online opponent play. Great graphics.

IL-2: Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (Playstation 3, 2009)

its one of the few combat flight sims available for the ps3. graphics are great and the combat so far is great. 1 problem no flaps available to slow down for combat use in simulator or arcade so i have to use landing gear or tip up. i have not played online yet but this is comparable to the old janes ww2 combat flight games. i would recommend it to any pilot or pilot wanna be its fun. just part way thru the campaign so no total exposure to the complete game. so far i think its excellent.

IL-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey World War 2 Game!!!

If you like history of World War 2 and also thought how it would feel like being in World War 2 this is the game for you. It takes you right in the front lines in a cop pit of a old World War 2 air plane and against the German forces in real air to air combat. The movie scenes are awesome and fun to watch and hearing the pilot talk at the end of every level as how the fight went on that day. The game could have been harder to beat but overall it is good. A must game to play and have. Thanks and waiting to the next game in this series!!!

IL-2: Sturmovik: Birds of Prey

Pros: 1) The planes are real cool and can be viewed in their hanger. 2) Excellent graphics. 3) Maneuvers make you feel like you are really actually flying. 4) Bailing out of damaged plane is neat. Cons: 1) Campaign is too short. Needs more missions. 2) Some missions are too short. I haven't played online yet. Can't wait. Overall this is an excellent game with alot of fun factor.

An excellent game for the price paid

Whether you're into wwII style games, or just looking to shoot down bogies over the battlefield, IL2 Sturmovik is well worth every penny. Although the controls tend to get a little difficult in the more advanced settings, the graphics are very detailed. Watch wings fall off, tail rudders catch fire, engines explode, etc. The pilots even eject too!
