Games Review: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey

DS, PSP, PS3, Xbox 360, £29.99 – £39.99

Designed by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts, IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is a Second World War flight-simulator. If patrolling for enemy forces over photorealistic backdrops in painstakingly authentic fighter planes sounds like fun then you probably already know that this game’s for you. If, like the majority of us, you just want some dog-fights then that too is on offer, though a lack of mission variety may take its toll on the experience. One for the purists.
