IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey - Summary

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is based around large-scale aerial combat over the ground-based military operations of World War II. Players participate in the war’s most famous confrontations piloting fighters, battle planes or heavy bombers across a range of thrilling missions. There are five seats of war to engage in – The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun – representing the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe.

As well as advanced environmental visuals enriching the game play, IL-2 also boasts an all new damage effects engine. Players can see real time damage to the aircraft such as holes in the wings and trail lines during dog fights.
Hundreds of airplanes taking part in air battles is a distinguishing feature of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and the unique environmental engine also produces highly detailed, realistic landscapes that allows players to see a brand new simulation of ground support actions.

• Engage in more than 50 thrilling missions from famous historical battles over Eastern and Western Europe and fly historically accurate aircraft
• Completely flexible difficulty level system: from arcade to realistic simulation

+ One of the best features in the game is also if you crash you just can continue (not like other games where you have to restart the mission).

No, it is more like Blazing Angles but then in my opinion better; It has a lot of content that any fans of this genre can't miss.

A campaign that takes around 5-8 hours that put you trough battles in Russia,Britain, Belgium etc.

And a single mission campaign with short missions (a bit like the old ace combat games) that takes another 10-20 hours. And it also some have nice extra's like a sim mode (very hard if you are not used to it d
