I'm glad I bought Wings of Prey (WoP) for only 15 dollars, hats off to Steam for amazing deals. Now with that said, WoP should only cost 15 dollars new. Its essentially IL-2 with all the personality gutted and HDR bloom effects to replace it. The campaign mode is horrible for anyone looking for something more then casual game play. If the player wants hardcore game play they are stuck with either single missions or very basic quick run missions. The selection of aircraft is deplorable compared to IL-2. Wings of Prey is just extremely limited. To think that the publishers were charging 50 dollars for the larger portion of the year make me queezie. For those of you looking for a good flight sim, buy IL-2 1946. There is a massive modding community behind it, the range of aircraft, missions, and customization beats the pants off of WoP (The **** [pits if it decides to censor me again] in WoP look just like the textures out of IL-2 anyway). If you manage to get bored of that there is a custom mission creator. For the 15 dollars I spent on WoP I could have bought Super Meat Boy, or for 5 dollars more, I could have snagged Amnesia: The Dark Decent. Shoots... I didn't spend my money wisely at all.… Expand
Jan 19, 20111OK, bought it on steam, and here's my basic experience: DLC doesn't work. Multiplayer works through the same system, and is thus broken. Simulation is inaccurate. The pretty destruction of IL2 is gone. 1 point for shiny graphics, but other than that IL2 beats it on every level.
Jun 12, 20111Bought the game day 1 for full price and never got to play multilayer. Traded e mails with with their tech support and they just stopped responding to me after awhile. Wish I could get my money back but they said talk to steam, steam says talk to yuplay. Finally gave up, that why Im giving this game a neg review.
Feb 29, 20122The gameplay itself is enjoyable, however the experience is completely ruined by the horrible YuPlay client. You cannot play multiplayer or coop without jumping through a bunch of hoops and even then it is buggy and a challenge actually connecting to your friends to play. It is very unfortunate, as the game itself is fun. Would have rated it a 9 if it hadn't been for the horrible YuPlay. So frustrating...… Expand
