Folks,

PC GAMER has just published their views on the Aces expansion pack. For one, I think they are right on the money. As an independant publisher, I think the following quote sums up most of the IL2 community thinking.

Quote:

"However you choose to enjoy the fearsomly good FB, this add-on is only going to heighten your pleasure. Buy it for the ragbag of new rides, the extra campaigns, or simply to thank Oleg and associates for years of absolutelt free, stupidly high-quality Sturmovik updates."

Tim Sone is the author and is obviously an IL2 community participant. Hope you are reading this post Tim, you know your stuff.

END POINT: I've said it before and I'll say it again, this flight sim is more than a piece of genius software engineering,it is a freekin work of art.

BIG RESPECT to Oleg and crew

Regards

Martial01

I don't mind giving Oleg some extra cash for his fine work. Not to mention all the crap he has to put up with from the jerks.

PC GAMER only survives if they get it right! If they make bad calls (e.g. giving good review to bad sims), they lose their credibility...and value with their subscribers and advertisers.

So you have to assume they're giving it their best shot.

What they wrote, of course, is no surprise to the ppl who post here.

Correct my friend

PC Gamer directed me to IL2 Sturmovik as the best combat flight sim 2+ years ago. I had never heard of it and was not particularly interested in combat flight sims. 2+ years on, I play nothing else LOL

Extra bump:

I just placed my order for IL-2 Forgotten battles, and i was wondering if lots of people play it online or do they just play the Aces expansion now??

EDIT - I just read another post that said you'd need Aces since most servers have upgraded... grrrr, i don't wanna shell out all this money not even knowing if i'll like it or not...
