Even though there are a few bugs (they won't plague most players), and only a couple of theaters (8 missions) to choose from, this flight sim is still one of the best yet. A-10 Attack! still is another "must have" flight simulation especially for 68040 users. The native PowerMac version is coming, says Parsoft. The one true feature of A-10 is it's ease of use during the "quick starts" and flying with the mouse. No manual needed! A-10 has been programmed for future enhancements by Parsoft that would offer new theaters and features that "plug-in" to the game itself...without possibly having to buy a whole new version. I hope more developers follow suit.
These complaints aside, without the Virtual Battlefield Environment (VBE), Parsoft's A-10 ATTACK! would be just a terrific flight sim. With VBE, A-10 ATTACK! represents a remarkable first step in a revolutionary Mac-gaming technology. As far as we've concerned, this lowly Hog is a blue-ribbon winner.
This game is fairly realistic. F/A-18 Hornet feels more realistic, but then again, this game was released first. It is also easier to control than the later game. Additionally, the lack of missions make this game more of a disappointment. At the end of the game, you'll be wanting to take on more missions, and flying the same ones over again just doesn't give the same kind of thrill.
