Well how about we take to the skies for a while where most of the action happens? That's just what 1c Company and publisher 505 Games have in mind for you this holiday. Long running and critically acclaimed franchise IL-2 Sturmovik will finally be coming to consoles, eight years after its debut on the PC. Subtitled Birds of Prey, the flight and aerial combat simulation game will feature some firsts for the series, including an arcade mode as well as real-time damage to each of the planes. We got to see the game running on the Xbox 360 and we're here to tell you that this game is gorgeous."
