  • Summary: Armed with an array of Air-Interceptor Missiles, and a 20mm "Vulcan" cannon, you fly a series of blue-water operations while engaging in head-to-head combat with MIG 29s, MIG 24s, and enemy targets. Numerous cockpit computer displays help you splash each enemy bogey with extreme precision, and when you've completed your sortie, attempt a heart-pounding first-person carrier landing that will challenge even the most experienced naval aviator. Fly alone or link up for some gut-wrenching head-to-head four player competition as you battle for supremacy of the skies. Expand

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. [Its] somewhat generic nature, dark visuals, and repetitious missions may deter the casual flight jockey.
  4. I’m taking points off for the lack of frames of animation, repetition, and no battery save, but mainly the last two. It’s still a good game.

    What's here is cool, if a bit vanilla.
  6. Could’ve been an excellent game if the colors were brighter or if the GBA had a back light.
