  1. For the multitudes with little or no background in the genre, this is a good, solid primer, which gives a good enough primer to leave you feeling less intimidated by the big boys.

    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.
  3. Nothing more than an uninspiring title that excels in a few areas and is completely dysfunctional elsewhere across the board.

    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]
  5. Unfortunately, it's not really all that fun for those of us that aren't hardcore either. After playing this game, I'm in no real hurry to hop into another jetfighter sim anytime soon.

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

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

    If the promised late release of the "Multiplayer" portion of JF5 is delivered, and works well. JF5 might well become a 5 or a 6!
