this game combines RPG and Flight Simulator elements better than any other (with the possible exception of Wing Commander) Gothicgene (83) 4.33 Stars4.33 Stars4.33 Stars4.33 Stars4.33 Stars
There aren't many fantasy simulators to compare this one to, but even if there were, it would have been tough to beat ududy (47) unrated

Dragon (Sep, 1990)
We thoroughly enjoy DragonStrike, the latest member of SSI's AD&D computer games. It is highly original in design and play, offers enormous dollar-to-play value, and is a superior arcade/strategy game. We don't think you'll want to miss this one. Try it out at your dealer and see if you don't agree that DragonStrike is highly addictive
I thoroughly enjoyed Dragon Strike, it takes SSI graphics into another league. If you have a liking for flight sims you should immediately buy this game. It provides a lasting and well-balanced challenge coupled with the usual skills that a 3-D tactical flight simulator normally demands. Then there are the unique aeronautical quirks offered by dragon flight. Dragon Strike is also recommended for the RPG addict as it gives a whole new dimension to the Dragonlance story.
Flieger mit Hang zum Außergewöhnlichen finden hier jedenfalls eine interessante Alternative zum üblichen Simulations-Einerlei. Das Spiel ist sehr abwechslungsreich und bietet trotz seines rasch ansteigenden Schwierigkeitsgrads Unterhaltung für viele Stunden. Wer einmal Drachenblut gekostet hat, wird vielleicht gar nicht mehr auf Flugbenzin umsteigen wollen...
Although this product is set in an AD&D world, it appears to be an Anne McCaffrey clone of the Dragonriders of Pern genre. Jousting atop a dragon with different weapons systems (fireballs, gas, etc.) often resembles a World War I fighter duel. Sadly, this product did not receive the attention or play that it deserved.
PC Leisure (Jun, 1990)
One point to make about SSI, it is certainly catering for all tastes with its Dragonlance series: RPGs, wargames, arcade games and dragon-flight simulators. Okay, Dragonstrike doesn't have a tremendous amount of role-playing features in it but as they say, you can't have everything - and to be honest, with a flight simulator as enjoyable as this you don't want to.
Compute! (Mar, 1991)
Joystick jockeys burned out on Migs and Messerschmitts should find battling Death Dragons and Draconians a whimsical and welcome departure. And dungeon-crawlers who have lost their enthuasiasm for 100 +-hour quest should also be satisfied with the game's fast-action thrills and rewards. Dragon Strike blends the first-person viewpoint and immediacy of the simulator with a sense of the exotic adventure of the fantasy game, in effect giving players the best of both worlds.
Power Play (Jul, 1990)
Simulationsfans, die vom ewigen Fliegen mit F-16, F-15, F-19, F-Irgendwas die Nase voll haben, dürfen sich auf den Drachenflugsimulator "Dragon Strike" freuen. Kein elektronisches Equipment, Edelmetall-Flügel oder Strahltriebwerke findet der heimische Pilot in diesem Programm, vielmehr Vogelflug auf ledernen Schwingen ist angesagt.
Ein ASM-Hitstern wäre bei DRAGON STRIKE zwar sicherlich übertrieben, doch zu einer Kaufempfehlung reicht es auf jeden Fall. Gerade diejenigen, die sich momentan auf einer „Flugi-Entziehungskur“ befinden, finden mit dem abwechslungsreichen SSI-Spiel eine echte Ersatzdroge.
