Review 1: Although the game looks nice there is actually nothing much about it. It takes place on the famous Italian 1000 Miles rally and is driven by the old, 1930's race cars. Select your car and drive ... enjoy. Highly recommended. Review 4: Drive through italy in the famous Italian 1000 Miles rally. The graphics are cool as are the really old cars you drive. The game itself is not very addicting..

Review 3: 17th century trading game. Similar to the Tycoon games. Plan routes, trade stuff, look after your cash and sail the high seas!
Review 1: Pretty much a standard game. You can upgrade your car, race offroad... Well, it's not bad, but surely nothing new (not even back in 88). You can play this with a Joystick and technically everything's ... that the car should be maintained during the race, like fixing tires or put more gas in hte car and stuff like that. Of course these actions will cost time, so you have to drive as good as possible.

Most of the systems ... game, and with many ways to complete each mission it's likely that you will through the game again when you finish it. Overall an enjoyable game, although maybe not one that will appeal to everyone.
Galactic Empire and its sequel A.G.E. (= Advanced Galactic Empire) are early first-person space/adventure hybrid from Coktel Vision. Both games sports a fast 3D engine with beautiful graphics - as one ... Note: Neither game works well on Pentium II but run fine on 486 or slower computers, so be warned-- you will likely need to not only slow down utilities but also DOS savvy to see these early games.
You wait intensely. Your ears are cocked to the radio. You double-checked every switch in your F-22 cockpit. Everything is green. You are flying in a lazy racetrack pattern well outside the enemy's AAA ... you might find A.T.A.C. interesting as long as you are interested in its unique setting. For purely flight simulation interest, it might be better to dust off your old copy of F-117A or Gunship 2000.

Very nice graphics for its time and already showed some signs of the quality that ... :) Review 2: Flight Simulation of the A-10 Thunderbolt II also known as the "Warthog".

Thalion's A320 Airbus is a highly realistic passenger airline simulation - one of its kind ever made. The game is perhaps best described as a more "micro," hands-down version of Air Bucks, with ... game should stick with Air Bucks, but fans of Tracon and veteran pilots will have a good time piloting passenger aircrafts in this overlooked sim that enjoyed mild commercial success on the Amiga.
Review 1: ACE is a solid arcade-ish sim oldie that remains surprisingly playable more than a decade after its releae. Instead of simulating real-life airplanes, Cascade Software chose to simulate a hypothetical ... landing gear. Now you're ready to ROCK N' ROLL. Use carrige return to select a weapon and peg those commie pinkos out of the good old U.S.A. If you have a joystick use it. If not use the keypad.
A solid follow-up to ACE, although not as fun to play as the original. Similar to its predecessor, ACE 2 is an oldie head-to-head air combat flight sim set in modern days of aviation. The game has a very ... little space, but the game IMHO feels a bit more repetitive than ACE. Overall, a must try if you like the original, but otherwise it's a decent sim that unfortunately doesn't hold up well with time.
Ace of Aces is an old World War II flight simulator offering some neat features for its time like multiple cockpit views and fairly good use of bitmaps. However, it's more of an arcade game with flight-sim ... about that language and only a dictionary to translate it. The 8-bit computer versions of Ace of Aces are quite better than this CGA IBM-PC conversion, so play this one for nostalgia's sake only :)
Review 1: Certainly one of the best World War II combat flight sims of its time and arguably one of the best ever, Aces of The Pacific features a huge number of planes, decent controls, a nice 3D graphics-engine ... are lots of settings to be set, which makes it quite nice. You can play lots of historical missions, or just start a dogfight. You can also enroll into a career. The graphics are pretty darn good!
Aces over Europe is a great follow-up to Dynamix' first World War II combat flight sim Aces of the Pacific. Playing in the European theater of war, you have the option to fly either for the German or British ... 1942: Pacific Air War, if you prefer the Pacific theater. Aces over Europe requires heaps of conventional memory, so make sure you read the FAQ for pointers on memory management for DOS games.

The game focuses on only a single battle: the Murmansk run in World War ... realism and playability, and a user-friendly interface, Action in The North Atlantic is a fun "beer-and-pretzel" naval simulation that's worth a play-through for all armchair commanders.
Arguably the best RAW Entertainment game and one of the most comprehensive naval simulations ever designed, Action Stations! is a very comprehensive simulation of surface warfare before and during World ... that remains today one of the most accurate and complex naval wargame ever made.

Advanced Destroyer Simulator has an ... my old IBM PS/2, but I didn't get it to run on my PII/450. So good luck in getting it to run. ;) Also try Sherman M4, a tank sim from the same designer which was released a year earlier by Loriciel.
AEGIS: Guardian of the Fleet is a fun but little-known US cruiser simulation from Software Sorcery, published by Time Warner in 1994. Featuring over 100 missions in 7 battlesets and a training area, as ... greatly lessened my enjoyment.

Review 1: One of the very few business simulations released for the Super Nintendo (the version for SEGA Genesis was also made), Aerobiz Supersonic from KOEI is a fun airline management game that is ... interesting play that is enough like and adds enough new twists to interest new fans of the game. It is recommended for download, and receives huge points based on its following in various formats.
Ancient CGA rally racing game by Tomahawk, set in the isolated deserts of Africa. There's not much else I can say about that :) The cars look nice, and the tracks are decent. Gets repetitive very quickly, though. If you like mindless, arcade-style racing games, this is another one of them.
Games Domain review says it all about this underrated strategic flight simulation:"Achtung Spitfire (AS) is billed as the "prequel" to Over the Reich (OtR) since it covers the time period ... Avalon Hill and Big Time Software are apparently planning a third game in the series, Whistling Death, to cover the air war in the Pacific. Maybe next time they can get it completely right."
Air Bucks is an excellent business simulation game from the company now famous for Caesar series.

Air Power is a great flight sim based on alternate history by Rowan Software, maker of several top-notch titles including Dawn Patrol.

Thanks to an agreement with subLOGIC right before they were bought out by Sierra, LAGO was allowed to include ...

Airlines is an underrated airline management sim from Interactive Vision (who is actually hard at work on Airlines 2, slated for an early 2002 release). In contrast to Air Bucks, Airlines is a complex ... if you enjoy serious business sims and don't mind "dry" presentation and boring graphics, Airlines is well worth a look, especially if you find Air Bucks too simplistic. Recommended!

When you start ... dilly-dally -- your score decreases as time goes by with no enemy ships hit. At each higher level, the game becomes a little bit faster and the enemy a little bit smarter. A few surprises await, too.

Fun for a while, but die-hard fans of the subject should check out Microsoft Space Simulator or Orbiter instead.
Back in the early nineties, before games were approved by committee, and when new and innovations were not only allowed, but encouraged, Blue Byte software, famed for its medieval resource-management game ... All in all, I cannot recommend this game highly enough, especially if you still have a working 3dfx card, as there was eventually an updated graphics patch, which looked brilliant for its time.
A very good "bang for the buck" flight sim, ATF: Advanced Tactical Fighters is an excellent sequel to U.S. Navy Fighters as well as the first game released under EA's "Jane's Combat Simulations" ... etc." If you liked USNF, there is no reason you wouldn't like this new and improved sequel. The range of aircrafts you can fly alone makes this sim well worth a look for any fan of the genre.
AV8B Harrier is another simulator using Simis' popular graphic engine. The sim is similar to KA-50 Hokum in gameplay.
