Hmm......I thought IL-2 was pretty promising for some time, but I tried the demo when it came out and didn't care for it. It's been so long that I don't remember what it was I didn't care for about it. I'll reinstall it and give it another shot.

Hmm......I thought IL-2 was pretty promising for some time, but I tried the demo when it came out and didn't care for it. It's been so long that I don't remember what it was I didn't care for about it. I'll reinstall it and give it another shot.

The demo for some reason doesn't make it justice.

Just for starters the game's interface looks like ######. Looks like the work of a ###### monkey. And there's not a lot of planes to play and the missions are kinda boring.

In the demo...

The game is a whole other story. The interface still looks like ###### but once you get past that and you start flying you start getting into it, then you are hooked.

The flight model (I heard) is very realistic. The most realistic in fact. As proof, just try to shake off a P-39 in a Bf109 (if they are in the demo) with full realism settings. If you survive at the first try... my hat's off to you. Chances are you are going to stall, flat spin and take the looks and shape of a pancake when you hit the ground.

That and the graphics themselves and the plane models are incredible.

Consider that IL2 is an OLD game (more than a year!!) .

FB is going to take advantage of the new graphic cards and the new goodies and it's going to look a lot better. :D

But your cheap Jedi mind tricks won't work on me, boy!

Then seeing how our Jedi powers are useless against each other this confrontation must be resolved by our skills with

*drum rolls*

THE LIGHT SABER.

Don't make me whip out my special Admin powers that can, quite literally, negate everything you do.

:devil:

T_1 tried to join but unfortunately he didn't have the patch(es) installed.

as i said in my above post, you have to have 1.2 installed in order to join the servers.

As these are big patches (25 and 75 mbs respectively) take your time to dl them.

I will prolly run another server either later tonight or tomorrow evening.

Until next time ;)

If IL-2 didn't still cost as much as a new game, I might go ahead and get it, even with the new one coming out soon. I'm going to wait, though -- it seems like a waste to get it now, even though I'm really into immediate gratification.

;)
