I saw this

in EB yesterday... Anyone tried it? It sounds like a cheap attempt at making money off IL-2 since anyone can create campaigns to their heart's content.

That was always my impression too. I won't be buying any add-ons unless they come from Maddox.

You used to be able to download it for free for the original IL-2. I still have it actually. I'ts a good campaign and comes with some OK skins, the movies dont work with FB though.
Not worth paying for IMHO!

Well, anybody can cook themselves a meal, but still many people will go to a restaurant and make some other people cook for them.

And then there's no element of surprise in missions you have created yourself. And what about all the research that is needed to make it historically accurate?

If you have ever created a campaign you know how much work is required to bring it all into line. It's not just some clicks, it's hours of placing waypoints and objects, testing and redoing it for every mission. I can understand anyone who wants to be paid for his work.

I don't think it's right to call it an add-on and charge 2/3 or 1/2 of the price of the original game, though.

basically if you are a 56ker or have no net access its probably OK as an add-on and passable value for money (as opposed to "Eastern Thunder" which was rubbish)

but if you have good net access download the freebies like "Experten" and "Emil" first

plumps_, you're missing my point. I'm not saying that this product is worthless because a person can create missions for themselves, I'm saying it's value is very much degraded because of the number of free campaigns that people have already created.
