Red Lightning is probably one of the best presented wargames SSl have produced. I found it a pleasure to use. No obscure, multi-layered menus here. While detail is good, some of the basic research is weak. For example, SSI advocate that the F-117 should perform strike missions. It is designed, solely, for reconnaissance missions, it has about as much strike capability as my big toe. However, even with the odd wrinkle Red Lightning is a quality product.
World War III in Central Europe. The game
has some interesting concepts (e.g. forward
deployment of subordinate units albeit at a
cost of added fatigue), but the user-friendliness/
clumsiness of inputs is so awkward as to
make the product a tedious chore rather than
an interesting or enlightening experience.

this interest, the
awkwardness of the

the game a "chore"
to this reviewer. The
ST version is not as
flawed, but the overall
ease of use is
sorely lacking in
what is supposed to
be software entertainment
