I've downloaded WW2OL, but i'm reluctant to try it because they need my cc # first. I'm more into the aviation aspect of these type of games, and i know there is a whole lot more to this game as far as tanks and soldiers go. Other games I've played: Fighter Ace: So far the best over all flight game i've found. Graphics are a seven, but game play and fun factor is a 10. I've played the game for about three months and so far its pretty cool. They have a forum and a dedicated staff to help new pilots get familiar with flight and how to play. Online, they have one arena that is always full of players with plenty of stuff to do, and a free for all arena for dogfight only scenarios. It leans more toward arcade, than simulator, but they do have monthly and weekly events (battles) where the flight models are more realistic. You get 300+ players turning out for those and its always a good way to start your Saturday. Overall, I give it an 8 out of 10. Il2 Sturmovich 1946: I've only had this game for about a month or so. It has great graphics and contains countless aircraft. It has 4 different versons of the P-47, and three different P-51s, to name a few. The flight model is very realistic. You have to manage throttle, prop pitch and mixture on some aircraft, so flying is never a mondane part of the game. Shooting is also somewhat of a challenge, but its just a matter of practice. In comparison with FA, I'd say its more difficult to get a shot on target, but when you do, there are more immediate results. To play online is free, and there are also dogfight arenas as well as campaigns. The down side....For starters, there are some obvious oversites with the map views, and the current version of the game is based on an 8 year old platform, so the controls are a bit primitive and you will only have a "fun" time flying if you have a complex joystick. One that is designed specifically for flight sims. They also recommend using a tracking software program for views, so you can just move your head to look for planes and targets... it adds up $$$$$. Its a great sim, but a horrible game, if that makes sense to say. But i've read the forum, and their are actual pilots who have difficulty with the game. i ended up downloadin another 4 to 5 gigs of software just to get the game "comfortable" to play. Is it fun?? Not by comparison. Is it challenging??? Yes, but equally as frusterating. I haven't completely written the game off, the graphics are the best that i've seen. For $10.00 it was worth the download, and i can still play for free online. There are many players willing to help. i've only played it for a month, and the learning curve of the game suggests it could take months or years to become proficient at it. By then the team that devolped this game will have released their next big sim/game. I will check that one out too. Overall i give it a 6, but hey it was 10 bucks. So what does WW2OL have to offer??
