THis game is great!! the only bad part is the controls i hae them!! Also the games levels can seem unfair like the recon mission, but i found how to get through that level. HAha anyway its a good game. I also like the movie it has inside the game. tThe cutscenes seem like an actual movie.

When I first played the game I was quickly displeased because I was expecting a simulator type experience, which this is not. But it is fun to play . I Thought the menu was a bit confusing, for example; to load a saved game you choose New Game instead of continue. You start with one plane and one level and have to beat your way through the story mode to unlock new planes and levels. Once beat you can play any of the 17 levels over at any difficulty level. The controls after learned are easy to use. Finding and locking on to enemies is easy with the system the game uses. Stay within a certain circle around an enemy for a few seconds and you can press A to perform a "tactical maneuver" where by you position yourself behind the enemy for an easy kill. This makes game play quicker and you can easily kill 40+ enemies on a single mission. Again someone looking for a take off and land simulator will be disappointed. It's only a one player game. Also, the only view is from behind the plane. If these things don't deter you then you'll probably like it. There is an extensive storyline that's written, spoken and animated. Overall not a bad game, there is a variety of missions and game play is easy. I give it a 6 because its worth trying if you like arcade style combat.
I was very pleased within the first ten minutes of game play!..I have been playing video games since pong. I could never find a flying/fighter game with easy controls and one that kept me interested for more than a day or two. the graphix could be better but other than that I will buy this game to keep!!!!!
