So I am a long time player of the older IL 2 games, and I still play 1946. I got burned a bit with Cliffs of Dover and thus did not pick up any further IL 2 games. Now that Battle of Stalingrad + supports the Oculus Rift though I am interested. War Thunder is cool but its solo play is lacking, and even though the VR is cool in that game I just lost interest. My burning question from the standpoint of a 1946 lover is simple. Is this version of IL 2 comparable to 1946 and is the VR well done or tacked on? This is a fairly expensive (not overly) game with all the content but worth it if the game play is there. I liked the scripted missions in 1946 but I kept coming back because of the awesome mission builders, me vs tons of enemies of my choosing. I also liked to scale my flight sim experience, some days I wanted full realistic flight and others unlimited ammo and fuel. That was the awesome of 1946 all of that was easy. If they made 1946 VR I would simply do that, the graphics are seriously dated but no matter. I might dabble with multiplayer but to be honest I am already invested in other multiplayer simulators and it would not be a selling point unless the single player is tops. It might win me over but its not my focus at this time.
Thanks for any input!
