You can fly Spitfire, Hurricane, Me109, Me110 or Ju87. The engines and guns sound 'right' and the enemy planes most certainly shoot back !

IL2 is a game I am just picking up. Difficult to fly but SOOOOOO cool!
I think I step over to the stategy games now...Want to command armies...conquer the world!

(" WW2 fighters", "Longbow 2" etc )
I only have a demo on IL-2 but it seems great.Got to get it later on.
Did not have the time to try the new tank games but "Panzer elite" is great.
Medal of honour for PS2 is great fun, especially the house fighting parts. The long walks in Arnheim feel a bit boring after a while and the guy blowing tanks is totally "humorous". I knew German tanks could not move but is that because the drivers and commanders are dumb or are they out of fuel?
Close combat series is good. At the moment I prefer countre-strike though.
Operation Flash-point gives a feeling of really being a part of operations.
Steel Panthers is a golden oldie. If you show your nose too early ( too eager to attack ) you´re dead in this game. I enjoyed the feeling of putting my panzers in a group and see how the Russians came with their tanks and blow the whole lot of them in a straight line. Leopard my fave tank in this game.
Battle of Britain by Talonsoft is an addiction for me. Not much graphics but moving the planes and changing the tactics is fun. Mostly the computer is stuck with its tactics but at times it does have its moments and you scream as Luftwaffe is getting beaten as you thought of making the "Golden rule for attacking"...
Panzer General series is a must. Getting your men up to grade 15 and blasting through enemy lines gives enormous satisfaction...
Mig alley: Great graphics but the plane seems somewhat unrealistic with its moving in the air. Good game though.

And since Kai mentioned it, Close COmbat III is by far the best WW2 strategy game in my opinion...

Close combat three is very cool, but the medals are badly done.

Alos, heads up everyone playing it, since the "Forgotten Battles" expansion will soon be released, focusing on the Winter War and the battles around Lake Balaton in Hungary towards the end of the war. Yay!

I have to agree that EAF is another great game. But not as good as CFS2.

Ace combat 6 fires of liberation and Ace combat 7 Assault horizon are preaty good along with Hawx 2, but flight sims like Il2 are some of my faves, needs alot of practice to keep you from turning into a lean mean flying machine into a pancake XD
The ace combat series aren't placed in the WWII era, though. But nonetheless, my favorite game by far. I think I posted a thread on it somewhere...
