A worthy successor to F-19, this flight sim features simplified controls making it a dream to play. There are six different theatres of war for you to explore - including the obligatory Middle East scenarios. Tons of on-screen action means it's not as techie - or off-putting - as some other more serious flight sims. [Budget re-release]
With solid 3D graphics and a glowingly beautiful title screen, ST Strike Eagle easily outshines its 8-bit counterparts and arguably wins the ST combat simulation crown - for the time being, at any rate.
As expected, Microprose have written an informative manual to accompany this simulation. The scrolling is somewhat jerky and the jet's roll-rate is sluggish (roughly 60 degrees per second). Nevertheless, considering the age of F15 Strike Eagle, it is a tribute to Microprose that it is still considered by many to be the best jet aircraft simulation.
It's still the same, rather basic, air combat game of three years ago. The omission of terrain features, leaving just the plain horizon, is a major mistake considering what the ST can do. Much more was expected of the ST version than this, and to be frank, F-15 Strike Eagle has not been worth the wait.
