Ce titre est doté d'une réalisation impressionnante, avec un graphisme vraiment divin. De plus, les boutons de la manette sont parfaitement exploités et permettent d'effectuer un maximum de manœuvres.

The only problems with the game are darkness problems common to almost every GBA game, somewhat imprecise controls, and the lack of a backup battery. Yep, you've got to use passwords to continue in the campaign mode. Fortunately, the game's pick up and go nature, excellent visuals, decent simulation qualities, and excellent multiplayer more than make up for those problems.
The disappointing lack of save options during missions and the forced use of passwords to continue progress notwithstanding, F-14 Tomcat is one of the better combat flight simulators yet devised for Game Boy Advance. Whether re-fueling in midair, trashing a multi-million dollar aircraft by miscalculating your landing corridor, or blowing enemy fighter jocks from the sky in a blaze of glory, the level of sophistication in F-14 Tomcat is as welcome as it is surprising.
Dass die technischen Möglichkeiten einer Simulation auf dem GBA begrenzt sind, dürfte klar sein. Dennoch leistet sich das Spiel keine größeren Patzer. Selbst die Grafik kann mit etlichen Tricks eine täuschend echte dreidimensionale Bewegungsfreiheit simulieren. Leider ist das Spiel nicht leicht zu erlernen. Gerade während hektischer Luftkämpfe verlierst du schnell die Orientierung - und solche Fahrlässigkeiten nutzen die CPU-MiGs gnadenlos aus. Oft hilft nur noch der Fallschirm.
