Presse Française

- E3 : IL-2 - Sturmovik Le combat aérien rétro à la sauce Ruskov...

« Attention les amis, cette simulation s’annonce comme une bonne grosse bombe des familles.. »

« Le moins que l’on puisse dire, c’est que le soft a des arguments de poids pour vous motiver. »

« Sentiment renforcé par une réalisation qui pourrait bien reléguer Combat Flight Simulator 2 et consorts au second plan. »

« Le cockpit virtuel impressionne, les dégats localisés sont excessivement nombreux, les effets spéciaux fourmillent de tous les côtés, on évolue vraiment dans du grand spectacle aérien. »

« Il2 impressionne vraiment ! Sortie annoncée pour la fin 2001. »

- « On commence en beauté avec la modélisation des avions, très détaillée : les appareils sont soigneusement reproduits, superbement texturés, et fort bien animés (flaps, gouvernail, train : tout est mobile). »

« L’environnement n’est pas en reste, avec de superbes textures de sol, des forêts magnifiques, des montagnes réussies. »

« Le plus impressionnant des aspects visuels du jeu est la couverture nuageuse, crédible au possible : les nuages volumétriques sont éthérés, parfaitement rendus, et font sans le moindre doute partie de ce qui se fait de mieux dans le genre ».
