View Full Version : Battle of Britain 2

Check out the movies. Looks flashy, should be out this month, but I downloaded the 27mb flick - both the Spits and the bombers have yellow tracers, looks inaccurate compared to IL2. I'd like to hear some opinions on it (also, I can't find any reviews on it) Did anyone play the original?

Looks pretty though

i flew the original, the fm's were appalling, and the effects were worse, if you shoot at the wing you get a 2d **** yellow star thing, looked appalling. hope they fixed these. also there was a bug where you had to set you minitor to 1024*768 other wise it would crash. not a major prob today but back then it was major.

I like the 'features' - almost as if they were targeting IL-2 players http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway, marketing blurb does not make a good sim.

'We shall see'.

The original BOB had some very emmersive aspects but not enough to carry the sim. I think Shockwave and BDG group have addressed alot of these issues. Hopefully there will be more screenshots and reviews when its released. There is very little hype at the moment.

I heard/read that they updated the graphics but are still using the original 3 year old engine.Also there is no multiplayer.

The trailers reminded me of Secret Weapons Over Normandy.-Arcadish.

Egames is shipping pre orders today.6/06/05

NO MULTI PLAYER, I am out. The only time my IL2 is played off line is when my 5 and 6 yr old boys want to fly.

Thing that scares me off this title is the fact we have seen ONE cockpit shot and it was a render.

I did love the RTS aspect of the original Rowans BOB. How you could command the airforce from the ground and not even fly in the dastardly FM.

I am quite likely to get this game if the flight models are up to snuff, and the graphics...

I thought some of the screenies looked ok, then somewhere I stumbled on a trailer that had gameplay footage and it looked terrible. I had the first one and I was never able to get it running properly. I think I'll pass...
