I flew it for a little while, and was amazed at how much they could squeeze into a small download. It is, however, a MMOG, and has more problems than you can imagine. I really did enjoy it, other than that. BUT . . . if you really want to appreciate the flight models in IL2, all you have to do is fly that game, or Warbirds (about the same thing) for a while. It's great whine-reduction therapy.

We are also and Aces High squad, and I have played it over 3 years now. The game is great fun with that you can play up to 700 in the same room, and have voice communication with all if you wish. The game tho is a older grafich and AH2 wil be out soon. AH2 can by the way be downloaded as a Beta and get a glimt on what to expect in the next versionhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

IL2/FB is far more detailed and can call it self real flight sim, but AH is one off the best regarding the among of pilot and that you can controll tanks, boats, planes, etc. makes it a good game in the WWII flight sim world. The thing that I love is the team spirit you get by team up with allieds players that you encounter for a terget or call out help on voice. Or just chat with you squad on squad channel etc.

Both games is one off the best in there own wayhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Try it out for free on a 14-days period and see for your self. Both games are exelent combination to play regarding WWII flight sims.

Feel also free to visit our AH squad at www.332viking.no (http://www.332viking.no)

I played it for quite some time while me and my squaddies were waiting for B17-2 to come out (which turned into a flop, but lead straight to Il-2 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ). At the time, there was a number of free 8 player servers to fly on (even after the free trial period).

Flight dynamics and flight characteristics were all quite good and believable, gunnery also quite realistic. At the time weather was starting to be implemented, as well as a large naval component, which was interesting. Plane graphics were barely passable at the time (2 years ago) and cockpit graphics were quite poor. The view system however was quite good (no TrackIR at the time of course).

All my humble opinion of course, your results may vary. Needless to say it is quite different than Il-2/FB, but very believable (as Il-2/FB also is).

Thanks for the word on the beta. For fun, I am dl'ing it, as I type.

edit: Been playing around with the beta for a little while now, and I must admit, the FM is 100% better than the current release version. I think that I would have to turn the AF on my card wide open to get rid of the old "shimmer", though. Sort of reminds me of EAW, graphically. Also nice to have mouse panning. Will be a much better sim when it is finished. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
