    This is an arcade-style game through and through, and a short one. Expect a few thrills once you acclimate to the controls, but don't expect to stick around for very long.
  2. More than anything, the PSP version of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey is a surprise. [Holiday 2009, p.85]
  3. The overall lack of complexity and repetitive nature of the gameplay will seriously reduce the time you'll spend playing this game. It shouldn't take you longer than a weekend to win this war.
