PC World Impressions: IL-2 Sturmovik Birds of Prey, Xbox 360 Demo

PC World: If you're wondering whether Gaijin Entertainment IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey distinguishes itself from the pack of "no...just no" gamepad flight-combat wannabes, try the demo, just up today on Xbox LIVE. It's not bad as arcade sky-shooters go. I say that as student (actually just a humble pupil) of the original Windows series by Oleg Maddox, arguably one of the greatest World War II flight-sims going. I'm not much for arcade flying games, but IL-2 kept me interested enough to rattle through "The Battle of Britain" and on to die, repeatedly, in "The Battle of the Bulge," before throwing in the towel and grabbing a cup of tea to write this.

The story is too old to be commented.

The ace combat T-grip and flight stick work great with this!
