Red Baron 3-D is a World War I combat flight simulation, essentially a heavily patched version of Red Baron II.
The game is playable as a single-player game in either campaign or instant mission mode, or in a multiplayer dogfight mode against up to 100 opponents via internet game matching services. Players can play as French, British, German or American pilots and can choose from 22 authentic WWI planes.
The 3D upgrade in Red Baron 3D only applies to older Voodoo graphic cards supporting 3Dfx's GLIDE. Most modern graphics cards (nVidia, ATI) support the industry-standard openGL or Direct3D, and cannot take advantage of the game's better graphics.
