    Anyone tried this game?

    "Wings of Prey is based around the large-scale aerial combat and ground military operations of World War II. Players can participate in some of the war’s most famous battles piloting fighters, battle planes and bombers across a range of thrilling missions. There are six theatres of war to engage in – The Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Ardennes, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun' representing the main airborne battles of World War II in Europe."

    Looks pretty good from the trailer. I'm downloading the demo from Steam just now.

    Just played the demo and it is a lot of fun! The mission in the demo is to defend Dover.
    To my surprise my Geforce 7950 had no problem running the game, which is a bad thing, because now I'll have to spend money on this game! :D
    I reckon it would be a lot easier to play with some sort of flight simulator joystick though.

    I'm getting excited about Storm of War, here is a clip from one its Spitfire cockpits. Awesome graphics for a PC. I think SOW is worth the wait.

    Oh that looks good... :D
    I might even build a head tracking thing so I can look around while flying. I always found using the keyboard to look around really difficult

    Hello chaps...

    I played the demo, but didn't really get the best out of it because I didn't have a compatible flight stick (and had to resort to playing using a mouse!!!)...

    But, even so I was overawed with the superb graphics - and I have to say it was a really nice change to have so many Soviet aircraft represented in a WW2 game (it is a Russian developed game after all). The two demo mission were one Battle of Britain based mission and one Soviet one over Berlin!

    The Berlin mission was stunning, and very enjoyable, and the aircraft models were very nice as well.

    ...Here I fly at roof top level seeking out hidden German ground targets in my Lavochkin La-7. The cityscape was quite believable and damage from flack and defending fighters was quite dramatic.

    In short, the demo impressed me so much I am buying a suitable joy stick just to play this game. It's not 'hard core' so is easy enough for the casual combat flight jockey to get into, but has enough detail and accuracy for more advanced simmers to get some pleasure out of it...
