Since this game is now scheduled to be released in a couple of days (didn't expect that!) I thought I'd start a thread for reviews and impressions. No impressions since I don't have the game yet, but over on Metacritic the early reviews are trickling in:
What The Critics Said

90 Console Monster
IL-2 builds on existing simulation titles that have been landing onto consoles recently, and is probably the best combat flight simulation title I have played on consoles to date. With its stunning visuals, audio score, well structured campaign and insightful exploits from our WW2 heroes, IL-2 will certainly send any budding fighter jock into a flying frenzy.

90 Impulsegamer
IL2 has held its own from the PC title, adapted to console beautifully, and is a rich and action packed simulator that gives a great realistic experience while giving enough entertainment to keep you enthralled.

90 WonderwallWeb
IL2 is a worthy addition to your console games collection offering fast paced and daredevil fights with some jawdropping graphics to boot.

80 Games Master UK
Considering a hard-as-nails sim lurks below the skin, Sturmovik has surprising playability. [Oct 2009, p.78]

80 Official Xbox Magazine
While IL-2 doesn't quite manage to be the awesomest air combat game of all time, it comes temptingly close. [Oct 2009, p.68]

I just know I can't wait to pick this up tonight.  I want to see how the rest of the players on Live fly....and shoot them down mercilessly. MUAHAHAHAH!  Long live the cotton swab!
