IL2 - Cliffs of Dover
IL2 is legendary. The last of the major WW2 sims, it took the concept first (in modern terms at least) explored by Microsoft Combat Flight sim and showed that you could combine outstanding physics with a fun in-seat experience. Cliffs of Dover was a bug-ridden mess when it was first released, but some stellar work by the developers and then by The Air Tactical Assault Group (Team Fusion) fixed nearly all the bugs whilst introducing a raft of extra planes, targets, missions and completely reinvented the game.
With so many possible adjustments, particularly as you ramp up the realism, you quickly run out of axes and buttons on the FCS. However, that is true on almost anything we can think of - perhaps excluding a full Warthog with additions - and certainly nothing around this price point offers as much.
