Birds of Steel: Soaring to new heights with Konami?
Same developer, different publisher in the cockpit...
L-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey was about respect - respect for the amazing machines the world sent to the skies back in the Second World War; respect for just how hard it was to even keep them in the air, let alone shoot at Nazis with the bloody things; and respect for the insane bravado of the men who flew them.
Birds of Steel is Sturmovik's sequel - same developer, different publisher, same respect.
But Birds of Prey was a stark game - all flawless handling but short on the gamey features console games need. And so Birds of Steel gets proper pre-flight briefings, more weather effects, over one hundred different planes, and new optional objectives unlocking secret aircraft throughout the campaign.
The new campaign stretches from Europe all the way to the Pacific theatre in twenty historic (not to mention dozens of fictitious) missions, and a massively multiplayer online campaign pits player against player in a virtual rerun of World War II which plays out on a global map.
