Game Reviews

Air Diver is a fast-paced, true first-person flying game that involves both maneuvering and fighting skills. The advanced F-119 Stealth Fighter or "Air Diver" carries a nasty punch, complete with forward guns, homing missiles and after burners. You climb in the cockpit of the Air Diver, with a control panel and heads up display that allows you to track attacking fighters on radar and then blast 'em! Loop maneuvers and Bosses must be overcome in order to liberate the nations of the world!

What we have here is After Burner with some purpose. Air Diver's strong points are a map scene for difficulty adjustment and bad Bosses that require fancy flying to shake and strike down. The cockpit is detailed, but the backgrounds scroll by in a choppy fashion. A nice flying/shooter that's a bit repetitive.

7.0

With its first-person perspective looking out of the cockpit, Air Diver comes off as an excellent fight/simulator. Barrel rolls, loops and flips are all well executed. The computer is a very strong opponent. While the altitude doesn't significantly change, this only makes the game more intense.

6.0

While the choppy background scrolling didn't impress me, the cockpit is highly detailed and nice to look at - the effect, however, wears off quickly. Controls respond well, with a nice barrel roll and loop. The huge Bosses add flash to this slightly repetitive After Burner clone.

7.0

Air Diver is much more enjoyable than After Burner, simply because there is so much more to do. Air Diver is NOT a simulator, but you must position the bad guys before they appear, as well as contend with more than just mindless drones. The loop is a pleasant addition as well as the Bosses.

The first flight simulation game for the Genesis combines true flying realism with fast-paced arcade-style combat. Arm your Air Diver stealth fighter, review your battle plans, and take to the skies to make the clouds a friendlier place to live. Great graphics top off this unique cart.

The long-awaited sequel to the classic Genesis shooter is here! This time it's slated to come to the Super NES, and it looks hot! Super Air Diver, like its predecessor, will contain fast-paced aerial combat thanks to Nintendo's DSP chip. Looking much like Pilotwings, Super Air Diver holds much promise. The enemy jets are not simple mindless drones, but combat-ready aces! The control will be topnotch, and the dramatic use of Mode 7 will simulate the skies of the world. Anyone who has ever dreamed of flying an elite fighter will thrill to the sheer realism of this cart. From the swarms of fighters to the dogfights, you will be impressed. Super Air Diver is definitely a worthy sequel.

Air Diver was a videogame released by Sega in the early ninties, It was a combat flight simulator similar to After Burner. The game is about flying an F-119 Stealth Fighter against enemy forces.

    This game was meant to be called Firefox after a late 80's film with Clint Eastwood playing a ace pilot sent to the soveit USSR to steal a top secret fighter, The game never gained permission to use the films name but it still has the backgrounds feel and look of the film, Not the best flight sim on the Sega but worth a go.
