On the Mudmovers site there is a link about a new BoB sim from History Channel/Activision. Is this going to be a reital sim or online only? The screenshots look fantastic. The link reads:

CARY, N.C., August 19, 2003, - iEntertainment Network (IENT), the award-winning developer of the popular TotalSims series of historical military games, announced today that it has signed a deal with Activision Value Publishing, Inc. (AVP) to develop AVP's The History Channelā® WWII: The Battle of Britain, a new single player game to North American retail outlets in October. The highly anticipated game, WWII: The Battle of Britain, includes a brand new combat terrain with over 270 miles of actual English Channel topography taken from real satellite data, over 40 historically accurate airplanes, and real flight models designed to perfectly match the flying characteristics of World War II aircraft.

screenies look a little lame.
could be over optimized for quick loading, but looks like Janes with the PC I had five years ago.
Could be fun however!

Plus with an activision name on the label it's probably and arcade game.

I tend to agree...I also could not tell whether or not the online version of the game is "pay to play". If so, I'm not interested.

I recently downloaded the Targetware demo from their site, i.e. Target Rabaul, and was not terribly impressed. It would have been great two years ago when they first started the development effort, but I think FB has it beat now, hands down.



All the best, Don

looks like a CFS-1 re-make.

Also, 1/2 of those planes NEVER flew in the battle of britain!

Its just a single player version of warbirds. Looks like its will flight models will be of similer detail to those in Operation Flashpoint. Pure arcade game for the masses.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

Yeah but look at BF1942 and how fun that turned out to be.

Arcade games can be alot of fun, but the thread initiator called it a sim which this new game clearly isn't.
