I can believe this only has a GF rating of 5?? Would someone like to tell me the name of a better console flight Sim? Oh wait that's right there isn't one!! The only game that comes close is "Birds of Steel". Which by the way is my second favorite console flight game. But back to "IL2 -Birds of Prey" which is the console version of "Wings of Prey" for the PC. So,if you have played "Wings of Prey" on your PC. This is the same game just a FYI. I would totally recommend this game. If you want the closest experience to a PC Sim you will get on a console!!

I have been looking for a flight sim like this for a long time. I wanted a game that was realistic(somewhat), but still fun to play. And I am happy to say, this is that game.
One feature i like is the ability to switch entire gameplay styles. There is a mode for people looking for a hard-core flight sim (Simulator mode), one for players who just want a fun to play flight combat game, without the difficulty of the realism (Arcade mode), or a mode for players (like me) who just want an in-the-middle experience.
There is also a large variety of fighters, bombers, or ground-attack planes, each with different armaments, and a variety of missions, for each players preferred gameplay style.
Overall, this is a great game worthy of your time. I know people have given this game bad ratings, but that's just because they are fresh from Call of Duty and don't like this type of game because its not Call of Duty. Believe me, this is a great game that you should definitely take the time to play. It is worth it.
(Oh, one more thing. It says I joined the month i am writing this, but I joined a year ago. Just to clear up some misconception.)
