This is a great flight combat simulator, maybe the best out there.
The graphics are kind of outdated because its not a new game, but still good and rounded, the airplanes are very nice modelled, landscape are simple but cool, effects are not bad. Panels and Hud are not special but you have lot of views to choose from.
The strong point of this game is when it comes to simulate the typical features of this kind of combat and this aviation era. You can see realistic aerodynamics, ballistic trajectory, angle of attack stalls, overheat, spins ( you need to know how to proper get out or it will spin until hit the ground ), torque effect, potential energy, and much more. The hitboxes and damage effect also works great. You have a enormous variety of planes and targets to choose from, and every plane have their own characteristics. There many other cool features.
The only downside for me is the campaign, because it´s take so many time and are not something that catch you and get you evolved, i just don´t feel like it is a campaign. But i had a lot of fun doing custom missions, and multiplayer can be real exciting and challenging.
IL2 have a lot of option to setup the game more easy and friendly, but in cost of the realism of course, i´d rather play it "as real as it gets".
You will NEED a joystick to play, as any flightsim, but this in special, without a good stick this game can be really disappointing.
The controls and commands are very simple, no secret..
If you like WW2 aviation era, and want a realistic simulator that you need to spend a lot of time to learn until you get proficient, this is the way to go.
If you just want to do crazy stunts and frag some enemies right of the box then forget it.
