It has great graphics and has an awesome dogfight view. The jets are accurate (names, mission, structure, place of machine gun, etc.). The plot is also very interesting. Not to mention the Apaches, AC-130's, and Blackhawk gunners you get to control.
The only minus is the controls- it's not like a joystick; you can roll left, pitch up, and stay on the artificial horizon all just by moving the stick to the left. Also, you can preform a counter maneuver by simply reducing speed, banking, leveling, and pressing the two triggers simultaneously (it looks like the move Maverick did on a MiG-29 in Top Gun).
So, if you're looking for a fun, near realistic, easy to fly fighter jet game (not a hard-core simulation), this game is for you.
