Desert Strike flies. it's easy to play, but tough. If you're a hard-core heli-warrior with an itch for Special Ops war action lifted straight from yesterday's headlines, scratch here. Economic sanctions will never make a good video game, so take to the skies with Desert Strike. the action's hot!
If you want a shoot-'em-up that stays away from the run-of-the-mill blasting style, jump into the nearest chopper and have a crack at Desert Strike.

A sturdy conversion, of a game past its technical peak, but still featuring plenty to do. If you were waiting for this to arrive, buy it without hesitation.
Desert Strike s'avère être un bon petit shoot'em up comme on les aime. Fluide et intuitif, vous aurez tôt fait de sillonner les cieux du Golfe et de pourfendre vos ennemis. Le côté gestion amène de plus une certaine note de réalisme loin d'être désagréable, bien au contraire. Le seul regret concerne l'ambiance générale du titre qui aurait gagné à être un peu plus travaillée.
