Images of Il-2 Sturmovik

Images of Il-2 Sturmovik

505 released a big batch of images from IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, and you'll also find some older images we couldn't find back when they were released. It seems like they really put time on making the ground right, specially judging from the fifth picture.

This will be a classic.

Is this coming to pc too? Or where do those 1280x800 screens with incredible AA come from?
But looks awesome nonetheless.

I don't know why everybody says this looks amazing. To me it looks average compared to HAWX.

I’m not really into the planes of the Allies but I’m very interested in the Axis planes.
It will be my pleasure to dispose tanks with a Ju 87, down Spitfires with an Fw 190 and destroy B-17s or Lancasters with a Bf 109.
It looks really good, I hope the controls can keep up with that.

Looks great, seems as though they brought the draw distance in since the last game though
Commented on 2008-07-21 20:59:21
graphics are great, hope gameplay is too
Commented on 2008-07-21 21:23:31
holy damn... ww2 fighters is epic win... these visuals are epic win... now all we need is a trailer of gameplay so that can be decided if its epic win or not.

Looks amazing, very nice looking clouds and for once a flight game with a good looking ground.

Is it just me or did anyone else have a flashback of being 10 and playing with Airfix models? Lol!

Thats the second game after tetris that Iam proud that it made in Russia. Just look at this clear sky, thats unbelievably realistic clouds, far far draw distance.

Im already frow in trash my PC. But IL-2 Shturmovik with 11 addons, I'll keep it forever.

Use to play this game years ago on pc. Its imo the best flight combat sim ever made. Ill definately need a flightstick for this game when it hits 360.

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (5 Hours ago)
