    Air Havoc Controller 3

    There are few air traffic controller simulations out there. It’s a sub-genre that will suit only a subsection of flight sim players, after all. Air Havoc Controller wasn’t the first ATC simulation for the PC, and it’s pretty simple at its core. You’re in charge of a 30-mile wide chunk of Arizona airspace that includes […]

    Team Apache 4

    The flight modelling in Team Apache, an AH-64D sim from developer Simis Limited, falls at the high mid-range of the realism scale, while the avionics modeling is in the lower mid-range, however neither is the real focal point of this military simulation. As the name suggests, the focus falls on team tactics. Let’s get into […]

    Fleet Defender 4

    The F-14 Tomcat first came into service in the 1970s, but the fighter jet was most popularized in the movie Top Gun (1986). In fact, the movie was so popular that people that signed up for the US Navy rose by 500 percent in the years following that movie’s release. Many PC games that plastered […]

    Black Knight: Marine Strike Fighter 3.5

    Black Knight: Marine Strike Fighter is a simulation of the F/A-18 Hornet, which is currently being used by both the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy. At first glance, this game reminds me of F/A-18 Hornet add-on for Falcon 3.0 from Spectrum Holobyte and Apache from I-Magic, mainly due to the similarity in quality of the […]

    Flying Heroes takes place in the magical, mythical world of Hesperia. It’s a land of history filled with conflict and bloody battles between four clans — the Magion, Sky Knights, Lizard Riders, and Hammercraft. Struggles for dominance consumed the lands until a better way of dealing with their aggressive natures and hatred towards one another […]

    Flying Saucer 2

    Is it true that the United States government is somewhat behind an alien plot to destroy the world? This is one question that is raised in AnyRiver’s craptastic shooter / flight simulator / action game in which you pilot a UFO (at which point you probably identify it and spoil its name). You plummet into […]

    Air Warrior II 4

    Air Warrior is the simulation that has given many would-be virtual pilots their first taste of what its like to fly against another person instead of an AI-controlled enemy aircraft. It’s the Doom of flight sims, essentially, so it’s quite an interesting entry as far as 90s flight games. Air Warrior II has a bit […]
