Easy targeting and non-moving enemies make this a better game for rookies than veterans. Whatever your rank, if you're looking for a solid shooter, Air Cavalry comes to the rescue.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Air Cavalry is for those who want a simulation game, but don't have the patience. You won't have much patience left anyway after playing this one a few times. It's just way too easy to get shot. Not having chaff or radar jammers to ward off enemy attacks just makes it that much harder. Also, you can pretty much just fly around and lock on to every vehicle and fire the missiles and gun, but again, you get blasted too much. The only saving grace is a nifty two-player game.
There is a certain 'no-brain' fun to it, in spite of all the problems and it does have a two-player split screen mode. Flying against another player makes it a little more exciting, but overall it's never better than average.
