First things first, my life has changed since playing fb, its the best game i have played bar none. (coming from a halo on XBOX addict!)

however i have always loved helicopters, and was wondering if any sim for the whirlybird matches IL2 fb's brilliance.

Commanche 4? is it good?

(still waiting for halo 2, please dont hate my first person sensibilities http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

thanks guys

Enemy Engaged: Commanche v. Hokum is by far the best the combat helo sim out right now...although you may have to look hard to find a copy. If you can also find the predecessor, you can fly both sets of helos: Commanche & Apache Longbow vs. Hokum & Havoc. It's not as grapphically 'pretty' as Il2 (I personally think nothing compares to Il2, other than Lock-On...if you can get it to work right!), but lighting up a tank column at night using the flir target system is pretty satisfying. Gotta love those Hellfires!

yes, that´s strange how this IL-2 series have changed everything. European Airwar was the most beautiful game I´ve ever seen back in 98 BUT now its stupid looking. THey´ve really set the standards and not just SPAM SPAM SPAMhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, i do love my graphics

to be honest if my only option is an older game that looks weak compared to Il2 i may leave it altogether.

il2 really does look stunning

and i am a shallow shallow man

Commanche 4 is just a shooter.

EEAH/EECH are the way to go... if only there was another one coming in the series!
