Got both (sturmovik & FB)and !WOW! What a game. To tell the truth, I haven't made it to FB yet,I'm still playin around with Sturmovik. The graphics are just grand,and it runs so much better than that overpriced piece of crap CFS3. The Bf is awesome to fly. I see why so many people like it. Really hate to admit it but those Gerrys knew how to build stuff(AND THEY STILL DO!!)The game's great for taking screenshots. Ya' sure can pose up some good "Sears Photos" Take care all....this is Major Catastrophe....SIGNING OFF

Welcome MC!

Want some advice? Don't bother with IL2, go straight to FB. It's basically the same game, but with so many extra features it'll seem like something totally different. I'm pretty sure everyone here will agree with me on that!

And again, Wilkommen!

Thanx for the advice. I appreciate all the help I can get. I should have known...2nd versions are always different and usually better! Insight,hindsight,foresight...all good things when it factors into the developement of all kinds of 2nd generation items. Cars, games, children out of wedlock.... (just kidding....ABOUT THE CAR!!!)
ThanX adain....this is Major Catastrophe...signing OFF>>>>

Yean I agree..go to FB..but ya know what... IL2 is a classic in sims. It's good to keep. I saw FB again around here with LOMAC FINALLY!!! FB was going for $19... CFS3 is at $29.... go figure.

Yes IL-2 Forgotten Battles is a fantastic game...you'll find it even better than the original with more possibilities to push the graphics even further up on the detail levels.

While I agree that there's plenty new in FB, don't overlook the campaigns that come with the original IL2. I've finished them all starting almost two years ago, and am working through the IL2 bomber campaign again now, and they're very nicely made. These are far more fun than the dynamic campaigns in FB, IMO.

So much info, so much fun, so little time to play on the computer (SOB...SOB...)Please excuse me for being a lowly Canuck buffoon EH...but could somebody please explain a term I saw in "Bearcat99's" post...(almost spelled it "BEERCAT"...hhmmmm...not a bad name)which was LOMAC. It looks like some kind of acronym. Il-2 & FB are both up here (in London Ontario) at BestBuy for $19 each...CFS3 $39!!! Like Bearcat99 said...GO FIGURE!...This is Major Catastrophe...signing OFF&gt;&gt;&gt;
