Looks good! I've been looking for a more arcadey or casual flight sim with decent graphics.

As much as I love the visuals of IL2, the complexity and amount of controls to bind make it hard to get into.

Wasn't really feeling this till things got a little more heated on the 2nd mission. The first mission is stupidly long and a little boring, and kicking the game off in a darkened atmosphere does the game no justice. The 2nd mission you immediately feel the scale, open landscape, part of a huge air wing, and man it looks great being able to see it in all it's glory. The effects are fantastic, flying through clouds you get water droplets covering the canopy, likewise the shimmering reflections of the sun also look amazingly well detailed.

It chugged a couple of times while doing big air battles with missile trails and explosions around the plane, but nothing substantial, and all at ultra. Enjoyed the boss battle at the end of the stage, it set it apart from just being bland lock on fire and forget.

A couple of things though, the mini guns sound weak, and is there variations in cockpit design? I bought a 2nd plane, and was a little bit disappointed to see the same thing over.

It's recommendable at £20, it's fun. I would have thought they'll probably add more to it as they released it out of the blue.
