Il2 Sturmovik

Post by Douglas Jr. » 29 Dec 2002 18:41

Hi everyone,

I bought the Sturmovik simulator a while ago, following the great commentaries that I´ve read about it in the net. In spite of have a highgraphic and definitions standards I became very disappointed with this game. The reasons are:

1) I like to play the "Career", mainly as German fighter pilot. However I ALWAYS HAVE TO PLAY WITH THE BF109 :x ! Why? There are so many options of aircraft in this game but we only can fly the 109 of the JG52. Why not a Fw190 from de JG54? I can´t understand...

2) The bubble gun over the German Medals. As a militara collector it really upsets me. :cry: If you don´t want to show the Hakenkreuz - what I can understand perfectly - why you choose to a bubble gun over the medal? Wouldn´t be much more interesting to simply erase it (as Microsoft made in the Combat Flight Simulator ) or change them for the de-nazified 1957 versions of the awards (as Microprose did in the great simulator ever, European Air War)????

Does anyone has any opinion about it?

Greetings to all,

Douglas.

You don't advance to new Fighters?
i own Janes combat sim & Microsfts Combat Flight sims....but i always found the Bf 109 to be a better interceptor fighter & the Fw 190 to be a better ground attack aircraft....but that's just me.....
Take the Bf 109G....It's quite hairy to do a "diving" turn on 2 P-51's at over 700 kmph & be able to pull out in time, hitting 1 on the first pass & them catching the other in the Belling on the way back up....

Hi Douglas Jr., actually as you advance in the german campaign of Il-2, there are new versions of me-109 that become available and also Fw-190s.

I've finished IL-2 German campaign for quite a long time,
and I didn't get any chance of flying the Fw190.
BF109F-2 -> BF109G-2 -> BF109G6/Early -> Bf109G6/Late

maybe it's just my bad luck that every single FW109 was outta stock :wink:

I've played it long time ago, so I think that a patch added for the german campaign the Fw190 or if it was just a campaign that was made by a fan of Il-2. Nevertheless it's the best WWII simulation ever and the patches also added many new airplanes. Can't wait till "Il-2 Forgotten Battles" comes out 8)
