While we wait for Dart to complete his review, here is Tom "WLINK" Cofield's opinion piece on the roll-out of IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover.

Can't disagree with your 7 points one iota.

A well organised and structured piece. Hard to accuse this article of soft-pedalling.

'Fiasco' is exactly the right word i.e. the serious-comic-serious nature of it all.

WTF were they thinking. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. The project leads, or those responsible for development, QA, and PR, deserve to be out of a job.

Good summary to this point IMO. Small shop with people whose strong suit is with coding and graphic development. Good business management is conspicuously missing.

Tom has another piece up today, which is a review of what we have as newly-published "alternative offering" to CoD:

Rising Sun - Phase 2 (built on the Strike fighters engine)
http://www.simhq.com/_air13/air_478a.html

- It is a good read that puts things into perspective.

Well done Tom. Honest, straight forward and no BS as all SimHQ articles.

Level headed and 100% spot on. Agree completely Tom.
