Stunning to look at, great to play and packed with many useful and exciting features - F 15 II is definitely top gun in the flight simulator stakes.

So why pick this over Falcon? In terms of being a flight simulator, Falcon has the edge, but even so, this is ideal for a beginner, as it's very easy to fly and it's a lot of fun. Also, experienced buffs are going to get a lot of fun out of this simply for the large number of missions involved and the variety of sceneries. In terms of accuracy, it may never match up to the might Falcon, but I can still see myself putting in more than a few hours on this one yet.

However, there are a couple of curious shortcomings. For example, although the satellite map on the left of the cockpit shows the position of your F-15, enemy missiles and ground installations, it doesn't pick up enemy aircraft - you can only spot these on your tactical display. Also, ground installations that you blow up during the course of a game don't stay blown up! But these may be considered as small hiccups in an Otherwise enjoyable - and graphically stunning - fight and flight simulator.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Nun, ein bißchen realistischer hätte das Ganze schon ausfallen dürfen: Die F-l5 hält z.B. unglaublich viele Treffer aus, und von den vier Schwierigkeitsgraden ist für den Profi nur der schwerste eine echte Herausforderung. Aber das Spiel macht durch seine herausragende optische Präsentation (vor allem natürlich auf schnellen ATs mit VGA) wieder einiges wett; wer also Simulationen am liebsten hübsch verpackt und mit einer Extraportion Action mag, darf hier praktisch blind zuschlagen.

Volltreffer! Eine Rakete knallt in meine F-15 - und nichts passiert. Sogar mit vier Löchern im Bauch fliegt die F-15 noch wie ein junger Vogel. Ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, daß das sonderlich realistisch ist. Außerdem fliegen sich die Missionen sehr ähnlich; auf Dauer fehlt mir trotz spektakulärer Grafik die spielerische Abwechslung. Wer aber nur à la Rambo über Libyen lümmeln will, bekommt viel für sein Geld geboten. Wie üblich liefert Microprose packende Szenarien, Piloten-Rummel mit militärischen Rängen und massig spielerischen Feinheiten. die einen immer wieder an den Computer locken.
