5 out of 5
A very realistic and dynamic flight sim
A sequel to F-22 Air Dominance Fighter
, F22 Total Air War is a fighter jet flight simulator game released in 1998 centering around the F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft and it is so good that it makes the former game almost insignificant beside this one. The most interesting game mode is the campaing, since it has 10 action packed, exciting missions in which you fight enemy aircrafts in a fully dynamic aerial battles over the Red Sea. To make things harder, each campaign has a time limit. You start as a simple novive pilot and play the easiest mission but as you get higher ranks and more experience, you get to play with the big boys in serious, deadly combat fighting. What stands out in the game is its very realistic physics engine which makes you feel like you are flying the real Raptor and a very cool mission planer that lets you fully customize the aspects of your missions. Also, no two missions are identical, which means that you can play the game for indefinite time with no problem. The visuals are amazingly realistic and the animation is very fast and dynamic. There is no music, but there are a lot of great and realistic sound effects that get you even deeper in the game. Without further explanation, I only have to say that this is an extremely intense, dynamic and fun flight sim game that will probably keep you occupied for hours on end.
