  • Summary: In Over G Fighters, a terrorist organization threatens the world's peace and security as players take to the skies in a united world air force. Players command more than 30 of the most powerful jet fighters ever conceived and battle for air superiority in massive dogfights in the skies above Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Players combat enemies in the air and on the ground with challenging and dangerous strike missions against well defended targets deep in the heart of hostile territory. Fly the world's most powerful fighters: Fly every modern jet fighter in the Western arsenal including the F-22A Raptor, the US air superiority fighter of the 21st century. Face more than 90 Western and former Soviet enemies and get in the cockpit of the F-15E Strike Eagle, F-16C Fighting Falcon, F/A-18C Hornet, Su-27 Flanker, MiG-29A Fulcrum, and F-117A Nighthawk.

  1. It looks and plays fantastically well and recalls the days when flight sims were something fun and accessible as well as requiring intelligence.
  2. For casual gamers, the repetitive missions, complex gameplay mechanics and steep learning curve may leave many feeling bitter about a purchase.
  3. Over G Fighters is for the hardcore fans of modern aircraft simulations. There isn't much here besides the accuracy of the jets and a few entertaining dogfights.
  4. Modern missiles are too good to make games any fun - give us crap biplanes any day. [Sept 2006, p.65]
  5. It's in need of plenty more flair, not so much that it strains against what its buttoned-down framework is trying to achieve, but just to inject some feeling of variety into its skirmishes and sorties. [Sept 2006, p.88]

    Over G Fighters is one of those games that make me wonder what the quality assurance department was doing when it tested the game. If they only check for crashes, they failed... it crashed a couple of times (and only when I just unlocked a plane...), but if they also look at visuals and audio they have certainly been sleeping during the process.
  7. Other than plenty of cockpit bleeps and bloops, the sound is also lackluster. Bad, generic metal loops dominate the soundtrack, making you actually wish Kenny Loggins was back on the scene.

    This game is very unpolished, however the Black-out/redout feature is a breath of fresh air to old school lovers of air combat sims - of which on consoles there are none. This comes close but fails on many levels, graphics, tankers, loadouts ect. So close yet so far away. Really hoping for more- rent- don't buy unless they are practically giving them away. Expand

    Over G Fighters, I am being generous by giving it a seven. It has good three dimensional graphics and mediocre sound quality. The cut scenes were low quality, they were almost like a powerpoint slide show with audio. Over G Fighters is an average military flight simulator at best. The levels get difficult too quickly for the average gamer and the amount of enemies are too many with too much firepower. I enjoyed the game but honestly I would only recommend this game to just above average gamers. Expand
