Description

F/A-18 Korea is the successor of F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 and simulates the F/A-18C/D Hornet dual-purpose fighter and strike aircraft. The new campaign with 28 missions takes place in Korea. Typical goals are the bombing of silos or atomic reactors.

The game lies its focus on the realistic simulation of the aircraft and so the player has to work with a complex set of key combinations to control it. To make it easier to get used to the controls there are several training missions which discuss the functions in great detail.

Besides the scenario the only real difference to F/A-18 Hornet 3.0 is the new support of 3Dfx graphic cards. A speciality in comparison to other flight simulations is that the player can't just start the airship when he receives the clearance for take off - he has to wait until it is his turn and the airstrip is free.
