Similar to Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, IL-2 Sturmovik seeks to redefine the nature of the flight/action simulator. Well, perhaps it's not a good idea to call it a "simulator" (this isn't Microsoft Flight Simulator, after all), but you can certainly expect a decent amount of authenticity in Birds of Prey. You can take these deadly planes and fly high over ravaged battlefields, participating in a whole different type of combat in mid-air. There are some gamers out there who will always love games like this, and it also offers the possibility of some very intriguing motion-sensing controls. Pull back to ascend, tilt to bank; all that good stuff. We'll have more on this one as soon as the info comes to light.
