With the Tomcat through the air!
F-14 Tomcat: Fleet Defender is a realistic simulation of the behavior as well as the types of missions in which the Tomcat F14 combat warbird would be used. It's graphically very well realized, with loads of detail poured into the interior of the aircraft as well as the exterior spaces, the maps, and especially the earth surfaces that the plane will soar over. The realism spans in many directions, from the behavior of the warbird to the extensive physics simulation but most of all in the design and delivery of the missions. This last layer is the one that is the best, as it includes well crafted, well delivered missions, and also, it is always paying homage to verisimilitude. No such thing as taking entire battalions of tanks by yourself, no endless mid air dogfights that never seem to come to an end, etc. Overall, F-14 Tomcat: Fleet Defender is realistic but it is also fun, for those that appreciate simulation with all the drab waiting times and the rather long periods of inactivity! But, that is on what the game prides itself, and don't worry, when action is headed your way, you will soon go from relax mode to hyper drive mode, as the game can be quite intense! A good alternative can also be the master or realism IL-2 Sturmovik which truly shines in terms of playability and realism taken to the edge!
