Please try the demo before shelling out your money. If you find yourself returning to play the demo after completing it, you might actually find something entertaining, enough to warrant paying forty quid (choke).
Drop the Tom Clancy off the title and what are you left with? An average 3D game that flies like a spaceship as you take on mission after mission, pumping air to air spread missiles and magic bombs on targets that are (and I quote from the game) "anti-American". Bombs amazingly have a blast area the size of several city blocks yet selectively damage only enemy ground vehicles.
Experience aircraft with amazing thrust to weight ratios. Rearm? Who needs that? Just blast the dots when you're told to. Then do it again over another photo from space. Fly through the magic hoops on command, it's technology right?
If you want a flight game, this is more sci-fi (but without any intelligence behind it). Will appeal to those who can more easily suspend disbelief and be influenced by the laughable in-mission jingoistic diatribe.
Don't look for any realism, or token towards realistic combat, past present or future (which it purports to be).
The "outside view" mode...sorry that should be the "assist mode" will appeal to those who remember the old ATARI Combat game in the 70s.
Remove the Tom Clancy name, and drop a star. Average blast.
