Finding a true to life flight simulator in the arcades is hard to do. With Sega Strike Fighter, you get a game that puts you in the pilot seat, and does not give you any room for error. Placing you in the middle of a conflict, you take control of a rather skillful fighter plane that must take out land and air targets while staying in the air long enough to finish the mission! Beginners need not apply as this one is for advanced gamers only.

The pla gamey that you find here is a fifty-fifty mixture of skill and control. You’ll be placed in the pilots seat of a fighter jet and sent out on several different missions that range from taking on aircraft in the enemies forces or taking out ground targets. Much like flying a real jet, if you crash into the ground, its game over and you’re out a couple of bucks because you’ll have to continue in order to keep playing. The missions themselves aren’t that hard to figure out, but piloting your fighter jet through the air takes plenty of skill and patience to learn.

The control that you find here is just like that of a real jet. You have a throttle and a stick that works the pitch and roll of the plane. Once you have control of that, then you have to work with the weapons interface that is located on the flight stick. This is where the game becomes extremely hard, because if you’re too busy watching your target and not the altitude of your jet, then you’ll crash into something and it will be game over.

Once you get through the control portion of the game, the missions themselves are actually pretty fun to play through. You can do strafing runs on oil tankers, encampments and bases, fire off missiles at enemy tanks and fighter jets and so on. Again, when you sit down to play the game, the learning curve is considerable, so if you’re into the flight simulation games, then you’ll find yourself right at home. However, if you’ve never played it before, save your money!

Note: The deluxe version features 3 monitors.
