SummaryNot a top-of-the-line sim, but a good game all around.
The GoodI enjoyed the option to fly the real F-117 or the Microprose version (2 more weapon bays and a gun). It requires some patience and planning to get around enemy planes and installations which added to the challenge of playing it.
The BadI don't think the difficulty was thoroughly thought out. If you upped it to the max, then a MiG-23 could see you flying at 50-100 feet while there was a mountain between the two of you. The F-117 wasn't designed for air-to-air combat like the F-15 and F-16 are, but the higher levels often resulted in similar results. Also, I found I'd get more points for completing a mission at a lower difficulty level than I did at a higher level. The only way I can explain this is, there may have been some extra objectives I was to achieve that I was unaware of.
The Bottom LineIt's an ok game. It's fun initially, but the missions get repetitive and the graphics aren't THAT eye-catching. For a real sim, I'd look for something more current.
