MiG-29 Fulcrum
MiG. The name instills images of ruggedly built, ugly aircraft with
limited range and payload but with great maneuverability. Well, that
maybe true if we're talking about 50's or 60's MiGs. But just look at the
graceful lines of MiG-29, and you might retract that judgement. MiG-29 is
one of the best fighter in the world. Tasked with close-in dogfights and
ground attack like it's American counterpart, the F-16, this fighter
complements it's larger interceptor sibling, the Su-27. Codenamed Fulcrum
by NATO, this aircraft is also one of the most maneuverable fighter of
its generation. MiG-29, the game, is one of the first attempts to model
Soviet-built fighters in PC. And the designer have successfully made a
mixed-bag product. The flight modelling itself is okay, for a sim from
its era. Small realistic touches, like using metric measurements instead
of English, is a plus (even Spectrum Holobyte did not use metric
measurements in their MiG-29 game for gameplay reasons). Weapons
modelling is also sufficiently convincing. The graphics engine, provided
by Domark, closely resembles the low-res version of its Flight Sim
Toolkit. The manual, like manuals of that time, goes beyond the call of
duty in providing information on how to play the game and background
information of the plane itself. The downside of this sim is the limited
missions supplied with it (you won't run out of fingers counting them).
The missions themselves are quite interesting, mind you. In addition, the
designers seemed to have decided to further insult our intelligence by
using "Cyrillic-like" characters in the menu screen which is not only not
cyrillic, but also downright ugly. MiG-29 is an interesting game for
memory's sake. However, if you really want to fly a simulated Fulcrum,
you'd better pick up the aforementioned Spectrum Holobyte's MiG-29. Or
wait until Flanker 2.5 is released...
