ST Action
Strike Force Harrier encompasses simulation and combat in separate options. The scrolling is smooth, ground detail is good and the joystick controls are responsive. Although the cockpit instrumentation is a futuristic interpretation of conventional equipment, it is quite plausible. The accompanying flight manual is in booklet form and takes you through the various take-off and flight procedures step by step, with an additional five pages which explain various defensive and offensive flight manoeuvres to help you during the mission. In short, Strike Force Harrier is the best military jet simulation available for the ST.

Happy Computer
Strike Force Harrier gehört für mich zu den schlechteren Simulationen, denn ich suche verzweifelt nach der Simulation. Der Vogel gleitet nach bester "Skyfox"-Manier durch die Luft, und auch aus mehreren hundert Metern Höhe kann man die feindlichen Panzer und Raketenwerfer noch hervorragend erkennen. Gemessen an der Fluggeschwindigkeit und der Flughöhe ist das absolut unrealistisch. Die Grafik ist leider auch nicht besonders anziehend, da die Bewegung in zu klar erkennbare Phasen stattfinden. Man kann schon fast mitzählen, wann auf die nächste gespeicherte Darstellung umgeschaltet wird. Auch von der Bedienung her ist der Harrier viel zu leicht zu fliegen. Mein Verdacht lautet, daß die Programmierer zugunsten der Actionseite auf die Realitätsnähe verzichteten und dafür mal wieder ein Kriegsspiel produziert haben. Was ich davon halte dürfte hinlänglich bekannt sein.

Although instrumentation is limited, the sheer playability of this flight sim makes it a good buy for search-and-destroy buffs - particular on the ST - but don't expect bulky training manuals, total authenticity, or dozens of control/display options.
