    Terrible game, ok is same that Raiden, but Raiden is better, and After Burner Climax is a game that don't have any new, and is not funny. Is a big deception that much titles of this genre are same.

    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. For all its speed and visual attraction, Climax lacks the tactile thrill of OutRun's drifting and can often feel more like a frantic scramble to paint the screen with your cursor than a measured challenge.
  2. 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.
