Flight/combat games tend to come in two flavors: arcade and semi-arcade. PC gamers have had the luxury of experiencing a few realistic simulators, but those games tend to focus on the joy of flying. Combat, however, isn't typically a part of the experience. IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey might be the first game to change that. IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey wants to be a true simulator, but not at the expense of engrossing entertainment. If the demo is any indication, the developers are well on their way to accomplishing this goal.
