WyldKat: The original IL-2 Sturmovik had no dynamic campaign. That was introduced in Forgotten Battles.

And frankly, we have been *ludicrously* spoiled by the quantity of flyable aircraft that the IL-2 series has ended up with. The amount of effort that goes into creating each of those planes is staggering, so a dozen planes is nothing to sniff at (most flight sims do not provide so many).

Now, that said, I understand that there are some pretty significant problems with Cliffs of Dover, so I'm not going to defend it unreservedly or anything. Just trying to add a little perspective.

JaguarUSF: Me too!
I've had this ice cream bar since I was a child. People... always trying to take it from me... why... won't they leave me... alone!

Don't make me use this! One step closer, I'm warning you! Don't make me use it!

Now you've done it! You forced me to use it!

Cliffs of Dover is a dog of a game. While beautiful, it's extremely poorly optimized. There's absolutely no reason it should run as poorly as it does.

Moreover there is no Dynamic Campaign which is something that made the original IL2-Sturmovik a great game. Also add to that there are only about a dozen flyable planes, most of that dozen taken up by various variants of the same aircraft. Compare that to 229 flyable aircraft in the original game. Sure that comes with the expansions, but still...

There's also tons of bugs, really stupid AI, and completely unintelligible voice acting.

With the original game being only $10 on Steam with all of it's expansions it's an infinitely better value, better sim, and more fun experience than Cliffs of Dover. Wait till it's in the budget bin.

Space Madness had nothing to do with Ren and Stimpy. I am disappoint.
