View Full Version : "Combat Over Europe" Expansion worth it?

Quick question--has anyone heard anything good about the "Combat Over Europe: Forgotten Battles - IL2 Expansion" pack that's out there? I saw like 2 comments on Gamespot (no reviews) and I was curious if it's worth picking up. I was also curious if it would mess anything up--I've got the FB+AE+PF integrated package and don't want anything to be messed up.

Heh, I guess I could always just reinstall everything if it's a bust, but if anyone knows ahead of time if it's not worth it I can spend that money elsewhere. Thanks in advance for your help!

yes, i have it. i thought it was quite good. i never reinstalled after pacific fighters install tho, so not sure about your question. i can't imagine why it wouldn't work tho.

but those guys have a new expansion coming out in the new year.. check out http://www.combatplanes.ca

Very sweet! I was worried it would overwrite information from either AE or PF. I'll have to either order it or snag it when I'm at the local mall next.

Hmm...Christmas season...mall...maybe I'll wait until after the new year! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A lot of people think that is a ripoff. However, having said that, I have Operation Barbarossa and Battle Over Europe installed over FB+AEP+FB+3.01 and they run fine. I am definitely getting The Last Days when it comes out and I think that the Aces Campaign looks interesting.
