IL 2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles...I want it NOW...

I cannot believe how great this game looks. The magazine I write for, PC Pilot, gave it its highest rating, which is rare since they can be harsh judges. What really sinches it for me, however, are screenshots like these three recently released ones:

You can click here for the rest of them. Man, I've been wanting this game for ages, but in talking with folks who have the latest beta, and seeing these screenshots, I want it NOW.

If you're a flight sim fan of any kind, you'll need this game. Personally, I have to recommend GoGamer because it had the best price out of all the retailers I've visited. Even though I might get a free copy, I'm also going to buy one just to support the genre.

If only I wasn''t so terrible at flight sims these days I would get a bit more excited about it. I think the last sim I actually enjoyed was 1942: Pacific Air War way back in the day. I loved that game!

Even with the joystick I can barely keep a plane in the air in 1942 and that is not that realistic of a model.

Hmmm... that does look good, I might give it try even though i''m not into WW! flight sims. Im more of Echelon, sci-fi/sim,... which is in my highs rating!! Ah.. the good old days of Echelon...
