Looks very fun. I eagerly await its release.

I'm waiting for that one too. I play Battlefront's games and post in their forums also. Anyone into WW2 armor should check their products out.

Man, even they can't get their RAF roundels right. How hard is it? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

At least the color is correct but the rest is way off. Oh well http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Looks interesting but I've always been suspicious of a card game on a computer.

looks like it holds no intrest for my tastes but if they made a homeworld 2 style aircombat game i would give it a look

Didn't Battlefront end up acquiring the rights to Avalon Hill's "Over the Reich" and "Achtung Spitfire"? They were both turn based air combat games.

I think it's awesome!!!!!

I loved Over the Reich and Achtung Spitfire! You guys remember those Avalon hill turn based aerial dog fight games? I also played alot of Air Force (avalon hill) as well as dawn patrol board and counter based games.

The idea seems pretty sweet. Reminds me of the old Spellfire card game I used to play.

Not for me. The charm of IL-2 FB is that it actually tries to simulate flight. Playing cards of capabilities? nope, not for me thanks, I'm driving! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

The designer of both Over the Reich and Achtung Spitfire, as well as Flight Commander II, is the same guy who has made the Combat Mission games.

And he is staff of Battlefront.com.

Got to say that Down in Flames looks very interesting and fun. I loved Over the Reich as well and other such games too.

They aren't flight simulators though - they're strategy games.
