    After Burner Climax is loud, fast, and chaotic. For fans of Sega, on-rails shooters, and ‘true’ arcade games, this is worth checking out.

    After Burner Climax is to gaming, what giant piles of random bits of candy are to desert; they both provide a short burst of joy and can be ever so sweet, but without more structure it quickly loses its flavor.

    If you're a big fan of score attack arcade games with big colourful graphics then Afterburner is your game. If you're looking for something a little deeper then look elsewhere.

    After Burner Climax is a short intense arcade shooter that suffers from a lot of technical limitations and pacing issues. Loading times, no save system to resume current game and jagged graphics at less intense moments are letting the game down. I would have liked to get to know After Burner a bit better, and at least had some time to get to know each other before reaching the Climax.

    After Burner Climax is not a bad game in itself, but the iOS port is severely lacking, and a blemish on the series' name.

    Looks handsome like Top Gun-era Cruise, but After Burner's fast-paced dog-fighting doesn't really work with iPad's touch-screen.

    There’s probably no way to make After Burner interesting again without turning it into a completely different game, but there was no need for Sega to prove that fact yet again.
