Andy Mahood dedicated the entire, full-page simulation column to BOB2.


“Toss in some improved AI…and a new multiskin component…and you’ll end up with a top-of-the-line WWII combat flight simulation that can hold its own with anything on the 2007 radar screen.”

“BOB2’s padlocking system remains one of the best in the business”

“If you have the right stuff, a twisting and turning engagement between the nimble Spitfire and the quicker Bf109 can produce some of the most amazing aerial dogfighting action you’ll ever witness in a PC Combat-sim.”

- Scott

Scott, great news. Can someone please post a complete text for us to review when it is avaiable.

Could it mean that determination, hard work, and a outstanding community does pay off in the long run.

I beg his pardon! What's wrong with the present AI and the multiskins?

Or am I misreading him?

I imagine that the review is all about 2.05 and current Multiskin. They aren't too shabby, afterall. ;)

PCPilot is a good read. I'm going to search out a copy.. it's available online.

Andy's comments pushed me over the edge on buying BOB2. I'm glad to see the sim supported so well that it has a chance to mature.

I hope to get mine in the mail soon so I can witness first hand what I'm seeing in all the great screen shots and movies.

Hopefully I'll have a few of my own to add at some point.

This will give me another reason to watch The Battle of Britain another hundred times... :)

Has anyone got their hands on the PC Gamer review that they can post for our review as yet?

Was it the March PC Gamer?

I don't think so Borton, thats about as good as it gets, he does not seem to have criticised anything. His reference to ading a bit of improved AI is a reference to 2.05. Thats about as glowing a report as we could have asked if we had payed!

Opps, sorry guys Scott just told me I can post the Andy Mahood PC Gamer March 2007. I guess I broke the law sorry.

He took the post/link down for me.

So anyone that read it please forget it for me.
