Description

IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover is a flight simulation set in World War II; this time focusing on the Battle of Britain. The British campaign (17 missions) features a basic story about a young pilot who has to deal with arrogant nobles. It is only told in text between missions. The three German mini campaigns with six missions each don't feature a plot.

The game focuses on the simulation side of the flying gene, but also features various realism options to make it more action oriented. All in all there is still a lot of action involved as the goal mostly involves shooting off a lot of enemy fighters. Mostly the player flies to checkpoints to fulfill his goals there. A time acceleration can be used to shorten the flying time.

Besides the campaigns there are configurable missions in which the player can freely choose an involved aircraft. Examples for goals are bombing targets, escorting convoys or defending a point. In bombers he also can choose his position - pilot or gunner. There about 30 realistically modelled aircraft in the game; about 15 flyable.
