Ive noticed there are two add ons out or due out.

Battle over Europe by Just Flight and Combat over Europe by GMX.

I was going to buy the Just Flight add on today but couldnt find it in the shops (UK). I will order it from Just Flight.

However Combat over Europe by GMX was out. I just didnt want to risk it as GMX as as a publisher dont seem to have many good games around. Except maybe Strategic Command.

HAs any one bought either one. If so what do you think would be the best purchase?

Thanks

I ordered BoE from Justflight. It shipped free from the UK, taking four days to get to my house on the east coast/usa.

For creating an new account JF gives you some bonus points which lowered the purchase price around $7.00 to about $22~

First impressions,

Im loving every minute of it and Im so glad I bought it. The mission briefings seem to be well written and add somewhat to the immersion factor. The missions Ive flow so far have been awesome, and no two have been alike.

The first time I escorted a group of 17's I knew I was in love. It kinda reminded me somewhat of the way I liked EAW.

The new maps are really awesome, even if they were released as a free patch for Fb.

I cant wait to start a p-38 career.

There is a good interview at SimHq.com

If I read the interview correctly AEP won't focus on the western front, rather it will focus on the later stages of the eastern front. So if its western front USAAF action you want, BoE is it until BoB is released.

Below is a quote from the SimHQ interview,

Q. How will the online dynamic campaign differ from the one that is coming up in the Aces addition?

A. The online campaigns in the two products will differ in the same way as the offline campaigns. With Battle Over Europe you will be able to fly for USAAF and Luftwaffe over Western Europe, while in the Ace Expansion Pack you will fly for the Soviet Air Force and several Axis countries opposing it on the Eastern Front. I think the difference in theaters, planes and historical briefings will be enough to make the two products differ, and at the same time compliment each other.

There was a thread yesterday which explored the controversy over the release of Combat over Europe by GMX. Apparently it is just a skin & mission pack similar to the "Operation Barbarossa" release a while back. Everyone from starshoy to ian boys put their comments in the only one missing was the big "O" himself.
