This studio must have a lot of time to waste and money enough to spend on this genre! These type games don't do too well on consoles. And from the looks of this... it won't make it past the bargain bin.

Ace Combat is one of “these type of game” and it is outselling any PC simulator easily.
I don’t like Blazing Angels but who says that this game is following its steps?
Technology wise there is nothing wrong with this game, it all stays or falls with its controls, presentation, mission design and handling and you can’t judge these at this point.
You are not even trying to give it a chance.

I loved these games on PC so I'm pretty damn exited about this.

Released on PC in 2004 (if i'm not mistaken) IL-2 still remains THE BEST WW2-plane sim, but that's mostly because the guys from Maddox studio and 1C (distributor, both are from Moscow) almost don't have any competitors in this segment of vg market. About Gaijin... i don't know, the guys never released anything worthy in my opinion. Fortunatelly, their only job is to port the game to 360

And no, IL-2 doesn't follow any of these games' steps, it is a pure, serious and quite difficult simulator

"though it's unsure if they are from the PC version or not." There is no PC version of this game, and the game looks pretty different from the PC versions of the game.

The other good news is you will be able to play with the full simulation on 360 and PS3. The DS version is being made by yet another (different) team.

I have the PC version with the whole collection, and I can see it happening, a noobified version will be the console version.

Graphics look pathetic, they didn't bother to add AA for the console versions I see.

i would play this type of games if the simulation was so accurate that if i finished the game i could fly/ride/shoot in real life...

Enough with the AA guys, these are screenshots, this happens all the time. Most games end up with AA anyway and it doesn't show in the screenshots.

Thats the best aviasimulator ever!!! Hardcore realism! I cant believe that they make a console version!!! Real great

About the game

    droezelke So weird, my store doesn't have pre-orders yet, but all day 1 editions are sold out.... (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (2 Hours ago)
