Better than F-16 Multirole Fighter but slightly less good than F-22 Lightning 3. The graphical department are very similar to F-22. Controls are still as unintuitive as F-16 and F-22. No tutorial / training mode can be found in the game much like other Novalogic Fighter games. The gameplay is slow and bland/boring. Don't seek out this game for the multiplayer as it is quite dead! Maybe you could give it a shot in LAN but I haven't nor I am willing to give it a shot! Did this game improved at all from F-16 Multirole Fighter? Barely! The visuals are a tad better but that would be all.
+Works on modern computers. Also, XBOX 360 gamepad is supported, but barely, like F-16 and F-22.
+Improved visuals from F-16 but F-22 are slightly better looking.
+Simulation seems adequate from what I played, cockpit is well modelized, just like previous F-16 and F-22.
-Dated visuals, graphics compared to modern gaming.
-Game doesn't completely support full screen as you see the window.
-Controls aren't very intuitive. Same controls as F-16 and F-22.
-No tutorial / training mode so you are left out figuring the controls for yourself.
-Poor audio (sounds and music).
-While in-game, can't access the options menu nor view/edit the controls which that is quite unacceptable in my book.
-Dead Multiplayer (to be expected though).
Well, barely any improvement from F-16 and even F-22. I'm not sure how this game did back in 1998 but now in 2014, I prefer investing time on more modern games, as should you!
Same as F-16 and F-22, I would recommend MiG-29 Fulcrum to flight simulation purists and gamers that dig old school gaming only. But in my book, you should stay away and look into modern games instead!
Also, since you cannot buy a single Novalogic classic and "forced" to buy the Novalogic Classics Volume One: Machines of War package, you better think twice before investing in this as I only found one game worth of purchase, Commanche 4. If you can find this package on a very good and drastic deal, give it a shot. Better, look somewhere else if you can buy a single game at a time.
