ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Everything has been thought of: the mix between action and realism is terrific. For instance, a safe landing requires much more than just pointing at the runway and plonking the kite down: even with some Ground Control Assistance, it's unlikely you'll pull it off without several hours practise; and then try it without help! If you only buy one combat flight sim, F-16 Combat Pilot must be on the shortlist.

The Games Machine (UK)
Features include re-armament screens, plane repair facilities, four other Falcons to command, save/load position option, a dual-ST dogfight mode, three types of enemy MiG, over 1500 targets, progressive skill levels, weather effects and intelligence reports. And to really pile the pressure on, there's a compelling strategy element, whereby mission results (good and bad) have a knock-on effect. The performance of other Falcons and ground forces are taken into account when shaping a war-winning strategy. Play F-16 Combat Pilot and you'll find out what multi-role really means.

The One
The CGA version is very fast, and although the definition of the graphics leaves a bit to be desired, the overall impression is exhilarating and gameplay is identical to the ST.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
F-16 Combat Pilot kommt also der Wirklichkeit sehr nahe, nur bei der Präsentation schneidet es nicht ganz so gut ab: Die Grafik kann mit der von „Falcon“ nicht wirklich konkurrieren, Außenansichten fehlen ganz, und der Sound klingt zwar originalgetreu, aber ziemlich monoton, Wer mit diesen Einschränkungen leben kann, darf aber unbesorgt zugreifen — er bekommt eine der besten Kampfflugzeug-Simulationen, die es überhaupt gibt!

Power Play
Noch eine Flugsimulation - und eine sehr gute obendrein. Was ich beim "Falcon" stellenweise vermißt habe, finde ich hier: einstellbare Witterung, Nachteinsätze und ein größeres Fluggebiet. Die Grafiken sind sehr gut und detailreich. Bei der getesteten PC/CGA-Version ist das Programm bei 8 MHz ausreichend schnell. Das Fluggefühl der Maschine ist ausgezeichnet.
