The latest instalment of the IL-2 Sturmovik line of combat flight sims. First released in October 2000 IL-2 Sturmovik was met with praise for it's attention to detail and also for covering a area of conflict (the eastern front) that has up to that point been ignored. Following this was the release of IL-2 Sturmovik -Forgotten Battles (from this point on referred to as FB) in 2003. This was initially expected to be a add on to the original game, however this developed into having a greatly improved version and was released as a stand alone install. Earlier this year a expansion to FB was released; Aces Expansion Pack (from this point forward referred to as AEP). This included a new Western Europe theme with new maps and new aircraft.
Shortly after the release of AEP it was released that the next project would be a pacific theme combat flight sim called Pacific Fighters (PF). This was based on the FB game engine but would include aircraft carriers which was something that was missing to this point (no need for a aircraft carrier on the eastern front) along with a host of other refinements and additions to make it truly a Pacific combat sim.
I must admit that I have followed the development of this game with much anticipation and had high hopes for it. I really enjoy the FB + AEP (this refers to the game Forgotten Battles with the add on aces expansion pack) and am a regular online flier. So how did it hold up when I played it; love it!
But before I go on any further I need to clarify something. There are 2 options for installing this game.
1. install PF as a stand alone game

Pacific Fighters introduces carrier and carrier operations into the 'Forgotten Battles' series. It does so quite entrancingly with astonishing graphics and a level of realism that completely eclipses that found in the older Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2 game. I found myself captivated as I wobbled down to a carrier landing in my little Wildcat - this game is first and foremost a lot of fun.
A number of features new to the IL-2 game engine appear - reduced and less blinding muzzle flashes, aircraft landing and staying on the airfield rather than just disappearing (a definite improvement for strafing missions), a 'skip' feature that allows you to jump rapidly from waypoint to waypoint - amongst more specific carrier functions such as arrestor hooks, wheel chocks and opening/closing cockpits.
With a GeForce 6800 GT card, I can get an astonishingly real looking ocean - sadly at maximum settings my hardware runs rather slow (Athlon64 3200), and it is more fun to watch the game play out rather than be an active flyer under those condtions.
The only major problem with the game is it currently being sold is that it is incomplete - a major and extensive patch should be available shortly to increase the aircraft complement and address a number of bugs. The post-release support offered by 1C:Maddox is second to none, and I am totally confident that all problems will be fixed based on my experience with prior releases.
I can't say enough about this game. One of the more unique aspects about it is that it it isn't socio-centric in any sense: if you want to be German, Finnish, whatever-- you are not locked into just being American, or Russian. Most all the participants of WWII are represented. It is one of the good watersheds of globalization!
The only qualification I can think of is this: if you want the best performance and graphics, be prepared! A machine running 2+ghz processor and a 256mb video card will go a long way toward enhancing your immersive experience.
Buy it and enjoy! It is not the type of game you will play for a couple of months and put away. The publisher also offers free patches AND enhancements.
Is as detailed as your graphics card and computer knowledge makes it. You are able to go into the (configurations files)and adjust the settings w/o having to use possibly damaging hardware
accerlerators on your PC. All the models perform close to if not exactly like their real life counter parts. I reccomend a Joystick at least, a graphics card with at least 512mg ram and
computer with type 4 processor 1 gig or better of on board memory to start with. I started w/less and was disappointed I did not see what all the fuss was about these (simulations that
appeared to be flat and rather boring!). Than I upgraded my system Imagine my suprise when Nuts and bolts started popping off my aircraft, oil leaks and spatters on my windscreen, poor handling characteristics from combat damage all this with a determined enemy hammering me on my six. Buy the IL-Sturmovik Gold Pkg. This will allow you to have one version of PF as a stand alone install and merge another into IL-2 which comes with an Aces expansion component that then gives you more flyable models as well as more scenery and the ability to fly aircraft from one theater of Ops to another. Have Fun.
