Join in the battle against mysterious alien forces that are attempting to take over the world in Aero Fighters, a 1992-1994 release. This single or dual mode shooter game is an Arcade Style, Super Famicom, and Super Nintendo platform - created and published by Video System, Co. Ltd. The player takes the position as an Aero Fighter whose duty is to stop the invasion. There are 12 different planes that feature unique weapons, handling capabilities, and with various pilot personalities. The goal is to destroy the alien threat and to protect the world from destruction or further invasion. The intensely detailed graphics convey the atmospheres to a future like setting. Each mission will vary depending on which plane the player is flying. Battles take place with gun stations and tanks – by land, with helicopters and bombers – by air, or with battleships and submarines by sea. Aero Fighters functions from a top down perspective, which amplifies the overhead shooter action. With so many options in different planes, it takes great skill and flying ability to defeat the aliens and win the game.

Game Reviews

Looking for a shooter? AF3 will do the trick. Although there is nothing new here in the way of graphics, sound or style, AF3 will nonetheless keep you pounding away at the fire button.

Choose from five different nationalities--each with its own types of planes and wacky pilots. Every plane comes equipped with its own unique, smart bomb that it can use to cause mass destruction. Once in the pilot's seat, all you have to think about is hitting the fire button and collecting power-ups.

Looking much like l94l,AF3's biggest plus is its bosses: they're big, tough and everywhere! You won't play for more than a minute at any given time without bumping into some juggernaut war machine bent on wiping you out. Unfortunately, on the weaker side, the bosses, while plentiful, are uninspired. You can only see so many tanks, ATVs, planes and ships before you break into a yawn. Aero Fighters 3 will surely satisfy your shooter needs, but on the whole, is nothing to cheer about. So, if you're all pumped-up on sugar, AF3 will heal what ails ya. Otherwise, don't waste your quarters.

The arcade classic comes home! The mammoth plane shrouds the morning sun--its shadowy outline masks its details and features, as it should: the jet is heavily armed with the latest weaponry. Suddenly, its jets roar and it takes to the sky! McO'River packs tons of action into seven killer levels! You also have four teams to pick from (and one hidden one). Play as pilots from Sweden ("I won!" "No, I won!"), Japan ("Why do I have to go along?"), the United States, and England ("Where is she?"). Power-up your weapons to obscene levels and take on menacing Bosses with two-play-er simultaneous action! There is even a secret code that allows you to play as a pair of powerful bunnies that blow the competition completely away! All this including hidden bonus" stages! Go for it!

Another hot shooter is blasting its way onto TV screens in Japan. Entitled Sonic Wings, this shooter takes the common concept, and takes it one step further by utilizing a unique power-up system. The game plays as well as it looks: HOT! This game is destined to be one of the better shooters overseas. To make this game even better, it's two-player simultaneous play! Who could ask for more?

Awsome flying arcade shooter. Choose 1 of 4 planes, upgrade weapons and have fun.
