Summary

One of the most classic fighter sims - 1st with first person view from cockpit.

The Good

OOOH MAN do I remember THIS game! WOW! It had the best cutting edge graphics of its time. The first person view from the cockpit was too realistic and AMAZING! I also enjoyed how you can fly in the high atmosphere and get attacked by hordes of enemy fighters. Then you can fly below the clouds and get attacked by armies of eney tanks. The AI was extreemly realistic, and intelligent.... for its time, and even for current present time!! Enemy planes would follow you, loop around you for another straffing run. Your radar would show missiles coming at you.

The Bad

There really was not tooo much to do heheh. Just fly around, and kill or be killed, while enjoying the stunning cutting edge graphics.

The Bottom Line

One of the greatest, most classic, flight and fighter sims, and perhaps the first one with a first person view out of the cockpit. The graphics during its time were cutting edge and amazing. Anyone who likes flight sims, and fighter sims, will love this game.... even now!
