Hostilities have broken out in the Persian Gulf. Piloting the speedy F-15 Strike Eagle, or the A-10 Thunderbolt, you must hammer the enemy airbases and ground targets in support of your forces. Digitized cinemas and realistic sampled sounds add pure excitement to the hot military action. Don't blow your missions, or the outcome of the war could be changed. Desert Fighter is better than the real thing.
Air Strike Patrol dishes out air combat and strategy... especially strategy. This game isn't for hyperactive thumb jockeys. The action is fierce, but lengthy planning and mission evaluation slow the pace.
ProTip: Always knock out as much enemy equipment and armament as you can, whether they're Mission Targets or not.
You pilot two jets through eight desert missions. The jets steal the graphics show: Although they move slowly, they look sharp from every angle.
The sensitive controls require finesse and poise under pressure. To make a 360-degree turn or a quick S-curve, you must carefully roll your thumb around the directional pad. With interceptors on your tail, it's tough not to make a fatal error.
For serious airware buffs that have flown EA's Strike games and F-15 Strike Eagle, ASP is your next objective.
