Summary: This game made a very good impression on me. In fact, I thought it was the best ever. However, there's a big "but". There are so many BUGS!!! It is unbelievable that Jane's was able to release this thing with so many bugs. I was put in disbelief, because this game has some of the best graphics and realism I've ever seen for a fighter-jet game. I know what you're thinking, though. Look for a patch? Nope.
Summary: Seems cool, graphics were very nice. Although I experienced MASSIVE load time. Consequently, I lost interest. Control is pretty much the same as Israeli Air Force, but everything is MUCH better looking. Again, I can't say much, as my low-budget, no-name, brand-goes-out-of-business-as-soon-as-I-buy-it computer is too s--l--o--w when it comes to this one.
Summary: This game had the potential to be outstanding. The avionics are lacking in realism. The F-15 radar looks like an F-16 display and the RWR is usless. Like most software companies, EA has produced a product that will only work on certain computers. Don't try this one on a computer loaded with Windows XP. It works for a day or two and then has to be reloaded.
Summary: I spent hours playing USNF97 Viet Nam era missions, so I was eager to boot up Janes USAF. At first blush, this game looks terrific. With the appropriately sarcastic Col. "Scooter" Davis as your IP, you go through training at Nellis. In my case I flew most missions in the F-105 "Thud". Once through training, I started to fly some of the pre-set VN missions. Here are the problems I see in this game that distract greatly from its overall rating.
Summary: I was very disappointed after flying it. I was excited about all the different aircraft I could fly, but I've been spoiled by Falcon4, the king of flight sims. The first problem is the constant bobbing up and down of the planes' noses after take-off and while landing. The biggest problem, IMHO, is the fact that the flight models are BAD. All the planes fly exactly alike. The A-10 is just as fast and as maneuverable as the F-15. That is not accurate.
