You guys are just silly. You should know by now that nothing can bend my iron will. And I am not saying that just because War Thunder is downloading it's remaining 5.8GB




British have TD line?!? Let me just check many space is left on G drive :P

Performance: I run the game on medium settings without antialies on my 3750 dualcore and ati with 256mb. I have a lot of background services so it's much slower than usual.

Game feeling: fantastic. I loved plane simulations and there is really a great feeling. Tutorials are great, handling with mouse is nice, although joystick would provide that edge.

Combat is chaotic. I had just one game but all of tutorials and it will take some time to get what is happening on the battlefield. As I understand I can either fight fighters or destroy land vehicles. And there is AA so it's not an easy task :D I like the choice.

I hope I will get some time in the evening. Can't wait for them to add tanks and naval ships. Overall, I am very impressed with the engine and handling.

Looks great, one that really stood out was the terrain quality of those hills and n
how realistic it looks.

I had first planes and ground vehicles shot down and got a grip of the fight. All planes from hangar but same country can be used in a single battle - once downed, you get fly next.

There are custom missions for bombing raids, free flights, escorts and intercepts... really adds to variety to the game. I don't have unlocked much as I'm still tier one.

Custom missions can be created for offline and online play. Gotta love this.

Visuals are stunning. Offline custom mission, bombing artillery. Didn't take the bomber so mission failed though :)

Offline mode custom mission - destroy AA

Once plane is destroyed, next can be joined in the same fight. Same country only.

Terrain is really great and game fluid even on close to min setting.

Unfortunately I won't be joining you any time soon. My computer failed the "run test" at Can you run it? I am just below the fail line. :cry:

Looks like Secret Weapons Over Normandy but for the CPU and with better graphics. I wouldn't play it for one reason, its on the computer. I like a good console game best, with a dualshock 2 controller. If I were more into playing on computers I'd jump at it though. Thanks for the review sismis, I enjoyed it.
