Computer Gaming World (CGW)
B2B's lack of a meaningful campaign, mission editor and multiplayer mode renders it a niche product. However, its undeniable strengths in the areas of flight and systems modeling give it a strong foothold in that niche. This is just MST's first entry into the computer game market, and they've said they plan to expand the base simulation engine in the future, presumably broadening its appeal. An overall rating won't mean much because B2B tends to polarize gamers. Those who insist on games that simulate the unpredictable chaos of entire battles or wars may be bored to tears by B2B. But if coming as close to the experience of flying an actual F-15 as you can get on a PC excites you enough to accept limited gameplay, obtuse documentation and a high price, then pack your bags, because you're due for a trip to Baghdad.
