Go and get the seat belt from the car and strap yourself into the
chair. You'll need it for this World War II flying simulation! The
screen gives you the view from the cockpit of your aircraft as you
battle against the Japanese in 14 different scenarios based on actual
events in the battles of the Pacific in World War II. The graphics are
simple but the overall effect is quite stunning as you bank, dive, climb
or loop the loop to get the enemy in your gunsights. There are even
instructions on how to do Immelmann turns and Split S's! The sun lies
just above the horizon and as you turn away the sky darkens to give you
an idea of your heading. You can do all of the manoeuvres expected and
if you get into trouble you can try to ditch or bail out. For the more
experienced there are night missions.
This is a great simulation giving a real feel of action but I have
never flown a light aircraft and do not know how accurate it is. Any RAF
flying officers out there who are into computer games? Is this as
realistic as it seems? I thought it was great.
