I saw a documentary about this fella, unfortunaly theres just his word and a few freiends, no real evidence.


Off topic,:- I tried BOB2 WOV again last night after a long break. It really is nowhere near the quality of IL2. Amazing to think that IL2 came out long BEFORE BOB2, yet its still superior in quality. I mean BOB2 is a vailiant effort, but nowhere near the same class as Olegs masterpiece. I reckon I'll trade it in for a new game.

S all!

Think the guys over at shockwave would disagree with you just a tiny tad.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ya trade it in. No sense keeping a game you dislike so much huh? I am sure they would agree with that though..

Oleg's masterpiece? Oh, if only it were.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Agreed, comparing the two is a bit unfair... it's like comparing a Porsche 911 Turbo to a Fiat Panda.

It's better than NOT having BOBII:WOV though! And its offline game is definitely more polished, even if it's too hollywood-like for my taste
