Younger pilots and ID4 fans will find plenty of thrill in these skies, but this basic shooter ranks as a fun rental for everyone else. Stick with Black Dawn and Soviet Strike for serious combat.

Beim Spielprinzip hat‘s ein jähes Ende mit der Qualität des vielversprechenden Filmtitels. Einfallsloses Geballer dominiert; das Ganze spielt sich furchtbar wirr und ist wenig motivierend. Selbst Fans des trickreichen Emmerich-Streifens werden an diesem Machwerk eine bescheidene Freude haben. Sorry, aber da ziehe ich jede noch so altertümliche Oldie-Kollektion vor, bei der man weiß (vorausgesetzt Ihr informiert Euch vorher), was auf der schwarzen CD geliefert wird.

Even though the Saturn port is the disc to get if you really must have this game, I still can't justify giving Independence Day any more than a less than average score. There is simply too much worthy competition for your gaming buck. Keep looking.
EA's Independence Day licence, though potentially lucrative, was inevitably a proverbial albatross around the neck of developer Radical. With creativity no doubt hamstrung by what was essentially a special effects vehicle, a plane-based shoot 'em up was perhaps the lesser of genre evils to adopt. Eschewing the basic Afterburner format, ID4 utilises almost fully 360° movement as a basis for blasting action.
