F-15 Strike Eagle 2
F-15 Strike Eagle II by Micro Prose is a flight/battle simulation that puts you behind the stick of America's most radical jet fighter, the F-15 Eagle. Starting as a second lieutenant, you must fly six detailed combat missions in areas ranging from Libya to Europe, destroying targets like Nuclear Power Plants, Enemy Bases and Patrol Boats. Your F-15 Eagle fighter is armed to the teeth with Sidewinder, AMRAAM and Maverick Missiles, as well as Cannon. And you'll need them all, because the skies ahead are filled with the deadliest fighters in the world, from the Russian Su-27 Hanker to the French Mirage F-1. You'll even go wing-to-wing against American fighters such as the F-4 Phantom and the F-5 Tiger...in enemy hands, of course!
F-15 Strike Eagle II has four difficulty levels—Rookie, Pilot, Veteran and Ace — to accommodate all skill levels. Options allow you to customize the game to your playing style. The game features the Heads-Up-Display view of an F-15, complete with boxed target grids and a lock-on tone that will give you white knuckles. It plays equally well for those who like to fire a missile, then jink to safety, or for those daredevils who like to ride an enemy's exhaust with cannon blazing.
The realism of this combat sim is intensified by ground attacks from fixed and mobile surface-to-air missiles. If a missile locks onto your fighter, wait until the last second to use your chaff or flares, since if one missile finds you, more follow. Multiple lock-ons tend to be the rule. While waiting until the last second to take evasive maneuvers is risky, it's necessary since your chaff and flares only stay active for a short period of time. You cannot use another until the decoys have burned out.
Quick wits and reflexes...as well as the ability to keep cool under pressure...are a must for survival. If you succeed there are medals and promotions in your future. If you fail, you just might get a job as a desk jockey. F-15 Strike Eagle II is a challenging game that will leave your palms sweating and heart racing. So put on a flight suit and come soar with the Eagles, if you dare.
