    The only complaint I have is the instructions are not complete enough. I have had to experiment to find out some things.

    Works great and looks great until you try to attack a ground unit and the game shuts off! What can I do about it if their are no patches?

    A rare combination of frustration and boredom. [Feb 2004, p.85]

    If you're new to sims and want to start at a higher level, or if you're an arcade flyer who wants to get his or her feet wet on a less forgiving title, then Jet Fighter V will serve -- at least until you get good enough to graduate to a more realistic sim or until you get frustrated enough to go back to a simpler title.

    JetFighter V may have the looks, but it's just way too air-headed to register as a serious contender in this genre. [Holiday 2003, p.112]
