    Play and enjoy After Burner Climax for what it is: a thrill ride.
  2. After Burner Climax is pure arcade. Pure fun concentrated in a game in which time goes much faster.
  3. It is one of the most fun experiences in the services it was released and at the same time enhances the value of the same, offering tremendous value for the money invested.
  4. After Burner Climax's a very interesting title, with an outstanding graphic engine and an intense gameplay-style that arcade lovers will appreciate. Its lifespan is shorter than expected, but it's worth the money if you're looking for some quick fun. It deserves the try.
  5. 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.
  6. After Burner Climax is an old-school arcade game. Your motivation is high scoring only, and that‘s it. Playing through all levels takes you about 30 to 40 minutes, so don‘t expect too much.
  7. The problem with playing an oldie like After Burner nowadays is its depth: There's hardly any to be found.

    This is the classic Sega that I love -- bold, bright, 60fps addictive action. Love it.

    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. Expand

    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. Collapse
