You'll be up against a wide variety of enemies, including tanks, choppers, missiles, jet fighters, and more as you try to earn your place in the Steel Talons. There are 14 combat missions to test your flying skills as well as your courage and intelligence, so come prepared and ready for the fight of your life.
Your objective is to go through a series of missions in your quest to be the top pilot of the country! You have to battle the opposition in a variety of landscapes. You battle across foggy conditions, desolate canyons, farmland, and even rocky, sharp mountains.
As a member of the elite group of helicopter flyboys known as the Steel Talons, you can choose to fight head-to-head against another flyer and undertake 12 training or 12 combat missions. Incidentally, even though you can choose to fly the 12 missions as combat or training, we were hard pressed to divine a difference between the two.
We liked the cool terrain that was evident throughout the game – canyons, mountains, rivers and hills. On the other hand, we thought the play control was limited, which is too bad for a game in which control is the most important element.
