Is this game worth the money? Considering how ubi is with ravenshield are they any better here?
Does anyone know when the gold or whatever next expansion pack will come out all with the orginal? tx!

This sim is definitely worth the money!

Setting difficulty to easy, medium, hard or any custom setting in between will definitely suit any kind of person... anything from cassual gamer to hard core simulationist.

EDIT: hm....does word simulationist even exist? :|

At $25-50 the game itself is a bargain
its the +$1000 of upgrading hardware+pedals+trackIR etc. that hurt my pocket

But even then I keep spending.

Whatever you do - do't buy it - youll be addicted...

itt's the start of a long downward spiral

you'll lose your wife, home, family and job

Then you'll start posting idiot answers like the rest of the zoo

please save yourself

Don't buy it. Wait a bit longer. After FB is finally out of public beta, it will be good.

I've flown lots o Flight Sims. This is by far the best. Realism is incredible. Online play is challenging. And flying within the game, including building your on missions, even for online play, surpasses any other game I've bought. Gamers seem to have trouble downloading the original and then downloading the patches that were released for the original. If one downloads them in the order they were released, no problems. I don't fly Frogotten Battles. Haven't tried, don't think I need to. Don't think it could be any better than the original. With the exception of different planes to fly. I only wish that those planes could be added to the original game. But none the less, really dosen't take away from IL-2 Sturmovik.

Salute Transient

Yes game is worth it. Best Flight Sim made yet, and stands to get even better with the Addons coming up.

To really get your money's worth, join an online Squadron. I only have bought 2 other Games since I got IL-2, there is just that much to enjoy with this Sim if you are a member of an active online Squadron which participates in wars, and meets regularly on Hyperlobby. If you are a Newbie, then you can get a tips and help from your Squadmates which will allow you to progress in the game much faster than if you are flying alone.

If you are interested in a good Allied Squadron, consider RAF74.

RAF74 members have been flying Sims for 7, nearly 8 years. We were involved with IL-2 from the start, we have our Tiger's head badge in the Regimentals available in that game as well as FORGOTTEN BATTLES.

We have members from Australia, Britain, Canada and the U.S. Our homepage is:

While it is an excelent sim it should be noted that there are a few machines it the game will decide it does not like and will refuse to run on.

By all means give it a try but make VERY sure you buy it from a store that will allow you to return it if you have one of "those" machines.

Get the game. I got IL-2 3 months ago and just got FB, (IL-2 Forgotten Battles) a month ago. This is the best flight sim I've ever flown. I can't say enough good things about it. For every $5.00 you spend for this sim you get $500.00 worth of entertainment and enjoyment.
For IL-2 there are many tracks,missions and campagins you can download. Look for Mudmovers site.) Although not too many are playing IL-2 on Hyperlobby or ubi, there are some.
Before this game I had never had the urge to play online. Now, seldom a day goes by I don't fly online. I've learned more from that than flying offline.
For the most part the people in this community are a great resource. Ask questions. (click the yellow link at the top of the page for the 'Unoffical FAQ's') For questions about the technical end of things go the teh Technical Forum. Interested in joining a squad? Go to the Squadron Forum.

[check out the link for ProudBirds of North America. This is a shameless plug for my squad].

Want to learn how to make your own skins for your aircraft? Go to the Paintschemes Forum. (Links at the top of the page).

Welcome to a great community and a great flight sim.

Have fun and check your six!
