IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Trailer

This launch trailer from IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover shows off 1C: Maddox Games' upcoming combat flight simulator set during World War II's pivotal Battle of Britain. The clip features several different aircraft, and snippets of air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. The clip ends saying the game is due Spring 2011, and a couple of weeks ago Ubisoft announced it is due on April 26. Here's the embedded version.

It's sacrilege to talk negatively about this title (certainly amongst my flightsim friends..yes I have flightsim friends) - but the screenshots I've seen look very similar to the original IL2. The hud text colour positions are identical, the smoke effect looks the same.. I don't doubt the models are higher res and the textures much better. Not sure what I expected.

The forum posts I've read focus on the graphics. What I'd like to read is how they've managed to improve the physics, the simulation itself.

Still, I don't doubt this will be sorted out eventually. Eastern Euro companies tend to endlessly update their products and IL2 had great support.

Still a shame to see it released in this state after so much build-up one would thing they could get it right.
