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?
Ya it's the March copy and Page 92. Glad I picked it up. I have ordered my copy of BOBII. Thanks PC GAMER for bringing this to my attention!
Here's a few more tidbits!
He makes reference to Combat Flight Sim fans being camels with so few new air combat sims comming out lately and so on. Apparently we (combat flight sim types) are able to go long distances between drinks (air combat titles worth playing) Hahaha.
Anyway. He goes on to say that hardly anything came out in 2006 aside from Blazing Angels and Battle of Europe which he describes as "disposable arcade shootem up" type games which, in his words, "makes it all the more sweet to see the latest upgrade from Shockwave Productions for it's year old BOB II. "The WWII combat sim was pretty damned impressive at launch (PCG score 84%)" ect...
He talks about sweeping patches that cleaned up the crash to desktop bugs and stuttering issues which he felt were carry overs from the ROWANS version from 2001.
He says that if you have not tried it, you are in for a treat. He goes on to explain how it works as flight sim wrapped in an immersive RTS style dynamic campain in a WWII setting. Which you all know.
He then applauds patch 2.05 for the Flight Model, AI and graphical updates and cleaning up most remaining bugs.
Says the Padlocking system remains some of the best in the business.
Says the sim offers comrehensive TrackIR supprt.
Talks quite a bit about the FM improvements for a few paragraphs.
And then the original quotes as listed by the original post in this thread.
I think he likes the sim.
Nice work shockwave and supporting community. I can't wait for my copy to arrive!
I have been shamelessly plugging the game (even though I have not played it) over at Rage3d.com. http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33888750
Kinda presumtious I know. But I could not resist. I loved Battle of Britain:Their finest hour. I am dieing to dig in to this apparently faithfull reproduction.
