a great little game!
I am a great fan of the old Il-2 simulators on the pc and to be honest i was worried about buying such a game for the xbox, however i was pleasantly surprised by Il-2 Birds of prey. it has not lost its simulator feel altogether and is well blended with elements of flight sim, and basic shoot em' up style gameplay. Graphics are good ( especially the detail on the planes and battle damage), good length campaign and a decent selection of online gaming. Dont be put off by the simpleness of the first difficulty setting and the near impossible realistic and simulator settings - it doesnt take long to work eveything out!.
All in all a definate buy and a great price - check it out! :)
