    Quite frankly, at this stage of computer game design anything attempting to show human beings in mass action will look stilted and phony---that's a given. I had already lamented the clean battlefield in my first post. Kindly spare the avuncular condescension---it ain't "our" game, we're just buying it.

    Consider that whatever they used to record that more than likely does not do the actual in game look and sound justive.. although I thought it sounded nice.. and I don't think the planes sounded like IL2 either... That sounded like stereo to me.. We shall see thats for sure.

    I'm ashamed to say I must be setting my bar too low I looking forward to the release of TOW, and by supporting this genre perhaps we'll see it develop into something greater. I still remember what those early flight sims looked like

    I pre-ordered mine and can't wait too. I'm also looking forward to the PT Boat game. I used to play a lot of Apache Longbow and I can see that being along those lines.

    I thought it's been mentioned that Maddox wants to tie all these new games together in an online war. Or maybe it was just a dream.

    I also remember those early flight sims and not believing how great they looked.
