    Hands down the best WWII combat sim on the maket today. The graphics are better than IL2 and the AI is vastly improved..very challenging. Online play is superb.

    By far and away the best WWII combat flight sim to date. This sim has over 150 flyable aircraft now and shows no signs of slowing. Outstanding.

    This is either a great standalone expansion pack or a slightly underachieving sequel. [June 2003, p.96]

    There's no denying that "IL-2 Sturmovik" is a great sim and therefore Forgotten Battles is a great sim by extension. As a sequel, however, it's a bit underwhelming.

    This is easily one of the best combat flight sims you can get and that's even if you already own the original IL-2.
