Computer Gaming World (CGW)
The only flaws I could find with this program were ones of omission. The terrain is completely flat, with no hills, canyons or other features. While it is easy to see how including this sort of detail might have caused numerous problems with the display, the fact remains that an essential element of strike missions is missing. Even so, FLIGHT COMMANDER 2 is an impressive product. It has the benefit of being easy to learn and very quick to play, without sacrificing realism or complexity. The programming is virtually flawless – a rather unusual feat these days – and sound and graphics are attractive, adding considerably to the playing experience. Most of all, this game is just darn fun. Finally, the skies are open to those of us without the dexterity or eyesight to play the simulations, but who can still put up a good fight.
