Die Grafik ist spitze, der Sound steht in nichts nach. Obwohl es eine Taste zum Abstellen des Maschinengeräusches gibt, habe ich nie das Bedürfnis dazu verspürt. Dieses Spiel werde ich mir trotz der umfangreichen Tastenbelegung sicher noch öfter zu Gemüte führen. Fazit: empfehlenswert!

Strike Force Harrier requires more flying skills and sense of strategy (if you're not going to attempt the full mission) whereas Super Huey II demands almost total flying concentration with a few missions included for those who can tackle them.

Strike Force Harrier encompasses simulation and combat in separate options. The scrolling is smooth, ground detail is good and the joystick controls are responsive. Although the cockpit instrumentation is a futuristic interpretation of conventional equipment, it is quite plausible. The accompanying flight manual is in booklet form and takes you through the various take-off and flight procedures step by step, with an additional five pages which explain various defensive and offensive flight manoeuvres to help you during the mission. In short, Strike Force Harrier is the best military jet simulation available for the ST.

Its 8-bit origins are still apparent, particularly in offering only one game scenario. Strike Force Harrier offers a competent combat simulator which, though limited in options, has been professionally converted to the Amiga.

Strike Force Harrier gehört für mich zu den schlechteren Simulationen, denn ich suche verzweifelt nach der Simulation. Der Vogel gleitet nach bester "Skyfox"-Manier durch die Luft, und auch aus mehreren hundert Metern Höhe kann man die feindlichen Panzer und Raketenwerfer noch hervorragend erkennen. Gemessen an der Fluggeschwindigkeit und der Flughöhe ist das absolut unrealistisch. Die Grafik ist leider auch nicht besonders anziehend, da die Bewegung in zu klar erkennbare Phasen stattfinden. Man kann schon fast mitzählen, wann auf die nächste gespeicherte Darstellung umgeschaltet wird. Auch von der Bedienung her ist der Harrier viel zu leicht zu fliegen. Mein Verdacht lautet, daß die Programmierer zugunsten der Actionseite auf die Realitätsnähe verzichteten und dafür mal wieder ein Kriegsspiel produziert haben. Was ich davon halte dürfte hinlänglich bekannt sein.

I know of at least four new flight sim - type games currently under development for the Amiga. Mirrorsoft's Strike Force Harrier will be the one that wins the race to the software shelves - it may well prove to be the most entertaining as well with its neat mix of pure sim and arcade game play.

Although instrumentation is limited, the sheer playability of this flight sim makes it a good buy for search-and-destroy buffs - particular on the ST - but don't expect bulky training manuals, total authenticity, or dozens of control/display options.
