IL-2 Sturmovik has finally been made accessible to IOS iPhone, iPod, iPad.

Before you can get into the single-player campaign, you have to play through three tutorial missions.
They're short and help you get used to basic flight and combat. Once completed, you unlock the arcade difficulty level for the main campaign, which is geared toward accessibility and ease of use.
You can fly your plane around without any risk of stalling and the ammo is unlimited. You even have weapon assists that show you where to fire in order to take in the distance to your target.
It's clearly designed for people who've never experienced a flight sim before, and while it does make the game incredibly easy, it offers all of the game's thrills without requiring you to learn any of the advanced flight mechanics.

No matter what difficulty level you're playing on, IL-2 Sturmovik does a fantastic job of re-creating the thrill of dogfighting in World War II-era planes.
Flying these machines is very satisfying; the way they move in the air just feels right.
The mixture of planes--from the light Hurricane Mk 2 to the behemoth of the IL-2 itself--allows you to experience plenty of different vehicles, but the combat is even more satisfying.
By holding the left trigger, the camera moves to automatically track your target, helping you to keep an eye on them even if they're employing evasive maneuvers. It also gives a really dramatic view of the action, as you can see the damage inflicted on your bird, and it adds to the thrill of the dogfight.

If you've ever wanted to experience the airborne combat of World War II, Birds of Prey has what you're looking for.

IL-2 Sturmovik's dogfights and bombing runs are exciting enough to satisfy anyone with an interest in air combat. It successfully caters to both novices and veterans.

Hi all.

Any comments on this one?
Is it any good?
Is this a sim like the pc version? Or an arcade game?

Thanks for any feedback

Ripoff warning...

How in God's name can the toadbots pretending to work at APPLE let obvious infringing trash like this through when they hold up all the legit games (Shadowrun comes to mind) for weeks of niggling crap?

Cupertino is full of feather merchants and oxygen thieves.
