If you like flying on the Western front...definately. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
The DGen offline camapign generator is preferable to the DCG program in my opinion because the missions are shorter in terms of flying time and the lack of "extra" ground units keep frame rates in good shape. Also the mission goals seem to work very well even if the AI is a little stupid at times, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif but that is not the fault of BOE.
After installing ACE & BOE, it is like a new release of EAW with all the new features of FB.
I am in Sim heaven at the moment with more options than time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
BTY Starshoy, great work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif and looking forward to the ACE Patch. Please post when it is available.

**** The Hell Hawks Campaign is available @ ****

Combat over Europe and Battle over Europe are twp seperate things.

I wouldnt bother at all with Combat over Europe GMX media.

However Battle over Europe is a different thing altogether I advise anyone to purchase this from Just Flight.

Buy ACE as well and you can then have a great offline campaign over Normandy.

Due to the campaign generator with BOE.

Combar over Europe and Battle over Europe are two different add ons. I will not buy CoE because I refuse to support its developers due to the way they presented it. They used community members work without thier approval and knowlege among other things. At least that is what one of the skinners in this forum said about his work. The people who made BoE went about it the right way so that one is in the mail. CoE... I can wait for. BoE vs CoE (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?q=Y&a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=301106861&p=1) See this thread....it's kind of lenfthy but it will explain what I am refering to.

Yes, it is definately worth buying. Nice change chasing Yankies in the skies over the beaches of Normandy ----- over Ruski Yak 9s near Smolensk....

No new planes, but great briefings, professionally done campaigns over new maps. Plus, most importantly - the support from Starshoy seems great so far, and they are in final testing of a patch including many of the just released "AEP" aircrafts into BoE...ie. P-38, Ju 87D-5, Bf 110G-2, Me 163B.......

Now, it would be great if we could see some Spitfires showing up in Rhubarb mission over the occupied French coast just to give some more authentic variety.

Do217s are you talking about COE or BOE?

BOE is worth buying/

COE I wouldnt bother with.

Do you own COE?
