  1. We've played "Starfighter" and "Ace Combat 4" and they are both excellent titles, but if you want to be engrossed in a battle that looks great and plays like you always wanted a game to play, Dropship is certainly for you.

    The transition from flying a plane to steering a four-wheeled armored truck to shooting a gun in first-person view is smooth, addicting, and, best of all, keeps the pace of the action consistent enough for you to be involved to the very end. [July 2002, p.74]

    Very steep difficulty curve, but makes you come back for more. A unique premise that is done fairly well. The game tends to lean towards being unfair towards the player at times, but they are pretty few and far between. A unique game in a genre dominated by Ace Combat and similar titles. Worth a purchase. Full Review »
