Also, let me say on the topic of WOP vs SOW. I am waiting for SOW. WOP will give me something to do in the mean time

BOP was the reason I am now playing Il2. It got my attention and when i couldnt program my controler the way i wanted to. I purchased Il2. And yes I think The graphics are pretty damn good in WOP.Those of you with your panties in a bunch grow up, there both games.Were all big kidds sitting in front of a screen.

I too purchased WoP after humming & harring. I've played it a few times, but the dissapointment for me is when it gives you a list of aircraft to fly, you think great, there's a few I would like to try, only to find out you can only fly them from external view a no cockpits view available, ie. the beaufighter.

For me the few factors that make it uplayable/unenjoyable are:

- Just horrible engine sounds (Like a bee with two tones switching almost in an on/off fashion with WEP on/off)
- Huge blurring effect when turning my head using TIR instead of image staying sharp
- Too foggy / uncrisp environment
- Tiny maps

The last time I tried was some months ago so maybe there are fixes for that already?

It's kind of a conflicting experience overall, it tries to be a simulator and arcade game at the same time. You have pretty detailed controls for CEM for example and then your missions are like: shoot down 10 planes and by default they start without takeoff and end without a landing. WTF?

Still happy I bought it as every buck spent on supporting aviation titles is not badly spent. But still WOP is not really fighting in the same category as SOW:BOB, DCS titles etc flight sims. But to be honest the best 'I'm flying' experience I've got so far has been flying low level in WOP, you can really feel the speed and see the details without glitches and FPS issues even when settings are maxed out.

Turn off motion blur to fix that one.

However I have to say that WoP is very unsatisfying indeed, the time limits are a joke as is trying to play the campaigns in sim mode.

You are right about that, when thier time limit runs out on you and you are taken out of the game, that screams ARCADE!
