The necessity to complete all five missions before you are allowed to attempt the campaign mission makes Combat Pilot quite addictive, unlike some other flight sims which are just a series of unconnected battles.

F-16 Combat Pilot kommt also der Wirklichkeit sehr nahe, nur bei der Präsentation schneidet es nicht ganz so gut ab: Die Grafik kann mit der von „Falcon“ nicht wirklich konkurrieren, Außenansichten fehlen ganz, und der Sound klingt zwar originalgetreu, aber ziemlich monoton. Wer mit diesen Einschränkungen leben kann, darf aber unbesorgt zugreifen — er bekommt eine der besten Kampfflugzeug-Simulationen, die es überhaupt gibt!

Neben “Falcon“ und “Gunship“ gehört F-16 Combat Pilot zu meinen persönlichen Simulationsfavoriten.

A pity that this wasn't released last year, when it would have probably done very well. A nice simulator but led down by a bad choice of colours and perhaps it gets a little tedious going through the many menus before each mission. It has arrived after Spectrum Holobyte's Falcon, which has done very well, but F-16 has little to offer which would be worth spending another £25 for.
