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 like the audio during the cut scenes and the overall story portion, but I am not a huge realist flight control guy. In this game you have to control the pitch and yaw and rudders and throttle and all the while trying to figure out how to tell your wingman to get the dirtbag, that is shooting your plane up, off your tail. The stick that controls your turning also controls your throttle so just when you think you got your enemy right where you want him, you stall or just fly right past him. I just want to turn the plane with one stick and blow the enemy out of the sky. The p.i.p. of your target is great and the graphics are pretty good. Targeting is a little troublesome at times. Once you get the hang of the controls it is all in all a pretty good play.

This game has to be to most gripping, high action aviation fighter there is. But, the controls to the plane may be difficult for a lot of people. If you like war history or just WW2 you will like this game. You can fight in the Battle of Britain and other famous air combat battles.
