    Why does every frigin flightsim have to be so realistic? Can't ya just jump in and do some flying. Don't get me wrong, I've played Falcon 4 and Lock On, plus other hardcore games, but sometimes it's nice to just look around and shoot down some stuff.

    Very nice - need some variation of birdfights modes. and then their is this bug, so that you can only use missiles on your F16. irritates the crap out of me.

    This game is sweet, there are very complex controls such as you have to open your wepon bay on the f22 and the jsf jets to fire a missle, the graphics are great, but you need an accelerated graphics card to run the game. its a lot of fun once you get the hang of it.

    This game might be tough for the first time and boring too, but once you settle with it and get to know the basics its actually a Perfect game for people who like jet simulations. The missions, jets(F-16,F/A22 and F35), missiles everthing is awesome. Must play.

    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]
