Converted from the PC, this version of F15 II has managed to retain all of the original features and, more importantly, the feel which made players gasp - it's a cross between a simulator and a shoot 'em up, with all the graphical excellence which you associate with Microprose products yet a noticeable lack of keys to wrestle with just to get off the ground. If I were you, I'd snap up this particular little gem straightaway.
Beginners may probably prefer the straightforward controls of F-15 2 over other sims. Even if flight sims aren't normally your bag, give it a try anyway. You'll be surprised at just how much fun it is.
This version of F-15 looks and plays just as you'd expect it to on an ST (like the PC version would on an 8mhz machine). The graphics look like a straight port, the landscape is not too jerky but quite slow. You get all the usual MicroProse spread of scenarios, including Libya, Vietnam, and (shhhhh...) The Middle East. You get a thick wedge of missions, loads of weapons, bags of missiles, SAMs, flak, enemy aircraft, tons of exterior views and loads of gameplay. I'm not sure, though, that you really need F-15 Strike Eagle II if you've got F-19 on your flight deck already.
Wegen der relativ geringen Komplexität (verglichen mit anderen Flugis), eignet sich der „Adler“ auch für Anfänger auf diesem Sektor. Mit ziemlicher Sicherheit werden demnächst auch für dieses System Missiondisks zum Golfkrieg erhältlich sein, für den PC gibt es sie bereits. Mir persönlich zu makaber; aber wer‘s mag, mag‘s mögen.....
An update of F-15 to state-of-the-art
Die ST-Version ist eine mittlere Katastrophe. Sound und Grafik bleiben weit hinter der AMIGA-Version zurück.
