Back to Baghdad is a simulation of the air war over Iraq a few years after the end of the Gulf War, with you taking the place of a F-16 pilot in a series of "one off" missions.
The game included a fairly detailed rendering of the F-16, it's cockpit and systems. The terrain engine mapped most of southern Iraq using satellite imagery, and did all of this with a software renderer.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The game itself seems to have been largely built out of "off the shelf" parts. The render, terrain, sounds etc. were all from 3rd parties, all displayed prominently on the box. It was up to the creators, MSI, to provide the logic to put all of the pieces together into a game.
Back to Baghdad
demands over $70 dollars when most contemporary titles cost about $40, making it one of the most expensive games (in terms of price) produced for the PC. It was later surpassed by Rainbow Six (Collector's Edition)
