I bought BoB2 after having played Il2 for 5 or 6 years. I never got into the strategic side of it. The flying part is a lot different than Il2. Il2 looks more uniform across the board. Up high, down low all looks good. With BoB2 I feel like there's 2 sims. Up high it looks very good and realistic but when you get below a certain altitude it looks cartoony. Dogfights in BoB2 are a lot harder. The AI in BoB2 is light years ahead of Il2. Had some very good high alt dogfights in BoB2. All in all I think they're both wothy additions to anyone's hard drive, BoB2 just takes a bit more effort to get into.
