    I've just ordered a copy. If it's anything close to Il2
    then it will be a mainstay on my PS3 for a good while!

    the playable aircraft list is enormous!


    "If you've dedicated the past three years to IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, your next purchase has arrived. Birds of Steel picks up directly where Birds of Prey left off; instantly accessible and yet hugely challenging, depending on how you tune it. The environments are huge, the plane list is long plus it looks gorgeous and sounds great. The action is thick and visceral; aerial stoushes can go from tense, one-on-one affairs to grand, epic encounters against swarms of enemy fighters and bombers. For three years Gaijin's Birds of Prey remained the best and most nuanced flight game on consoles. Birds of Steel builds on the excellent Birds of Prey and refines Gaijin's formula further. Birds of Steel is an exceedingly confident and robust game that will reward fans with its depth and detail. It's easily the best flight game on today's consoles."

    Have you tried Il2 on simulator? It's pretty difficult!

    I cant say that the PT Boats game appeals to me.
    If I were to build a new rig for gaming it would be
    to play Armed Assault 2! (I've been a dedicated
    shotter ever since novalogic's Delta Force!!)

    But I cant afford to buy a new rig, grrrrrrr

    I only play Xbox or PS games on hard when I can at the moment. I am typing this on a £70 gaming keyboard and a Rat 3 mouse ( it is the cheap one but the shape I like.) God I am true nerd I got like £1400 gaming stuff and don't have the time to play it.

    Stuff runs so fast you can see how HD TV runs at a slow frame rate.


    Hey a £400 PC can do cool stuff now. Microsoft Flight and this is free:)


    I wish the New PS or Xbox would come out it is cheaper.

    Well, what a game!! Follows on nicely from Il-2.

    some nice new touches, tracer rounds, searchlights.
    some nice new aircraft, Lancaster especially

    MISSION EDITOR!!

    Pearl harbour is there to attack, Malta is there to defend,
    plus other theatres, like the Ruhr

    absolutely fantastic
