IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka
« on: November 20, 2020, 10:39:43 AM »
I presume this is just - Tank Crew thats been out for a while and nothing different

Man it seems expensive - with no infantry - air or artillery just tanks ... I was thinking it may be worth it from a VR perspective - as an experience thing - but not sure...

Any opinions ?
"you are the rule maker, the dictator, the mini- Stalin, Mao, Hitler, the emperor, generalissimo, the MAN. You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

If you peep the "IL2," thread on here, you can catch up on what general consensus is from the players of the game on this board.

Having said that - and hoping I didn't sound snarky there as I did not want to seem as such, I am an unabashed tread-head so I'm over the moon with the game.  Would love a greater combined arms (infantry, off-board arty support, etc.) sort of thing, but it is what it is.  If I have any opinion to offer, its that you should wait until it goes on sale before picking it up.  777 Studios runs a sale every 3 to 4 months it seems, and Christmas is right around the corner, so...

That's going to be my tactic too.  Been thinking about this one for a while, but it is a bit steep for a slight punt, and I've *got* to get the Battle of Normandy module as well.

@Zulu - there is definitely air involved,  in both MP and SP.

I was thinking, eh, $60, unsure...

...then I realized it needs IL-2 to play, so I thought I should clarify here that this game costs US$110.

Not so much for me, I've already got IL-2, but $60 is a little steep for me right now on a game with no air threat or infantry yet. (Granted, air would be tantamount to a random kill, so for gameplay I can understand no air.)

Game goes on sale regularly, probably will be on sale for Christmas.  If you drive tanks on mp servers you’ll have air...piloted by players in il2s and Stukas trying to blow you up.  They’re also adding crewable AA so you can shoot back with more than small caliber mg.
