A combat flight simulator offering the ability to fly scenarios in World War II, Korea or Vietnam, or mix and match them. Good graphics, good game play and an excellent post-mission analysis yield a high recommendation.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
For those who prefer dizzying arrays of dials and technical authenticity to the more simplistic arcade aerobatics of, say, Jetfighter II, Chuck Yeager's Air Combat is a must. The image of the game as more of a training aid than a straight flight simulation helps to re-inforce the feeling of realism, and the later parts of the bulky manual - which interacts well with the program itself - make genuinely interesting reading. Definitely NOT for boy racers who can't handle more than up-down-left-right-fire, but if you seek a more challenging and longer-lasting experience, you can't go wrong.

Interface
Chuck Yeager's Air Combar är definitivt inte någon dålig FLYGSIMULATOR. Tvärtom. Den har massor att ge den som är intresserad av att öva luftstrid och gillar att plöja igenom en faktaspäckad manual (förgylld med den senile stridisens stolliga skrönor). Men, vill du ha roligare, skaffa då F29.

Power Play
Ich gebe zu, daß ich nie der große "Chuck Yeager"-Freund gewesen bin. Die beiden bisher erschienenen Flugsimulationen waren mir persönlich immer einen Hauch zu öde - Hindernisflug, wie aufregend! Chuck Yeagers Air Combat ist da schon eher nach meinem Geschmack. Erfreulicherweise ist es Electronic Arts gelungen, Brent "LHX" Iverson für dieses Spiel zu gewinnen. Dank dessen fleißigem Händchen ist die Grafik von Chuck Yeagers Air Combat selbst auf schwachbrüstigeren ATs rasant und detailliert. Selbst wenn mehrere Geschwader B 52 den Luftraum bevölkern ist kein großer Geschwindigkeitsverlust festzustellen. Für friedliche Flugpuristen ist der Air Combat sicher nichts, aber wer sich gerne mal auf ein Duell mit fetzigen Computerpiloten einlassen will, kommt um dieses Programm kaum herum. Kein überflüssiger Schnickschnack stört hier die Lust am Ballern.

PC Player (Germany)
Spielerisch gehört Chuck Yeager's Air Combat immer noch zu den reizvollsten Produkten seiner Art, vor allem wegen der Fülle an Optionen für Einsteiger und Profis.
