  1. My only gripe with the game is that Konami did not include any multiplayer modes.
  2. A simple flight combat game with stunning visuals (like most X-Box games, stunning visuals and great game play seem to hide from each other), mediocre sound, and good controls.
  3. It is a challenging program, but lacks a fresh storyline and relies too much on the arcade elements.
  4. 62
    It seems we're given the awesome war planes and very little else in the way of gameplay, story or presentation.
  5. 60
    The gameplay, however, isn’t anything that hasn’t been done already, and the paint-by-numbers seek-and-destroy missions can get pretty dull after a couple of hours.
  6. A mediocre game. While I really, really enjoy collecting the fighter planes available in this game, I could always start a new Micro Machines collection.
  7. An upgraded, yet still very lacking, installment in the air combat series that continues to be outclassed by Namco’s efforts.

    This game is pretty cool....but REALLY NEEDED a multiplayer mode in it. Then it would be more interesting to me.

    This could have been a great game. The 3D engine used apparently can render very convincing flight scenes as you can see during the replays This could have been a great game. The 3D engine used apparently can render very convincing flight scenes as you can see during the replays that you can look at after every mission. Unfortunately, during gameplay there are only two views you can use - from behind the aircraft and from the cockpit. And although the graphics are fast and smooth, you will not get the feeling you are really flying while playing the game. The controls are strictly arcade style (i.e. not simulation style, no take offs or landings etc.), but that would be OK with me as long as the right feeling was present. Unfortunately it isn't. In my opinion, the controls doesn't make use of the X-Box joypad controller very well either. Although you can make some custom controller settings, many controllers are permanently unused. The game would have been much better if is had offered more directional movement possibilities (like horizontal movement left/right for example) that could have been assigned to the now unused controls. The game will get extremely tedious and frustrating after a short time because of the layout of the mission system. You will have to play the same locations over and over, and if you crash (which is not very difficult btw.) you wont get the chance to replay the last mission. You will have to revert to a saved game which might be several missions back. I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this game, it aint worth the bucks. You may want to rent it for a day just to see how nice it would have been if there was a flight game on the X-Box that gave you the same good pilot feeling as e.g. Gotham Racing gives you the driving feeling. And finally, who has choosen the music for this game?! Is it the year 1982 or what?! The music will be your first reason to get into the options menu to switch it off! Doing so unfortunately also mutes all speech in the game. Collapse
