    Ok, before anyone says, "yeah right, a 10" understand that I gave it the highest of accolades because it's simply the best After Burner game ever made and it still retains a feeling of nostalgia especially considering you can choose to play the game with the original After Burner II music intact, note for note. Reminds me back when it cost a $1 to play the motorized deluxe edition that moved your entire body left, right, up, and down. So, as old school arcade reboot, this game gets 9 +1 for nostalgia. Worth the measly $10 spent on it. Expand

    If you were a fan of past After Burner games then this one if for you. Its fast past arcade style flying at its finest. Those looking for a serious flight sim, or something like Ace Combat may want to look elsewhere. Sure the game is short, but its highly replayable and just darn fun.

  1. Afterburner Climax is a great, and reasonably priced way to play the arcade game in the comfort of your own home, but it's a remarkably simple game that will leave some people wanting a lot more.

    Play and enjoy After Burner Climax for what it is: a thrill ride.
  3. Ask yourself if you totally likes retro gaming and playing games over and over until you really master everything in it. If you don't, you'll probably end up playing After Burner Climax 2-3 times and get bored. But if you do, look no further. After Burner Climax is absolutely the game for you with insane speed and action, old school style.
