Air Force Delta Storm

Under the guise of a flight simulator, Air Force Delta Storm hides an arcade game in the purest tradition of terminals filling cafes and game rooms. You take command of the jets to carry out combat missions during a supposed conflict unfolding in the near future. However, don't look for any realism, much less any historic background whatsoever. This is just an excuse to fire randomly on anything that moves, because it's frankly amusing when you have some ten minutes of time to waste.

Air Force Delta Storm benefits from advanced graphics quality. Whatever the situation, the game operates at a constant level of 60 fps. Result, lighting effects, countryside, explosions, etc. are superb. As for planes, these are quite simply the most beautiful ones ever seen on a game console. In short, it's quite impressive, to the extent that while watching the video replay of the mission you just finished, you really get the impression of watching a film in the tradition of Top Gun!

Familiarizing yourself with the game is especially simple. You need less than a minute to create your profile and launch a fight. You could opt for an external view of the plane, like in a third-person game or a more classic HUD view, but the latter is significantly less practical. During all the missions, you must fight air targets with the help of missiles and destroy ground or naval forces using your cannons and your missiles. Be careful however, the latter are only available in a limited quantity based on the type of aircraft you have chosen.

Based on the number of enemy targets destroyed, you earn a bonus for each mission, which allows you to buy new aircraft. There are about fifteen in the game. Some are existing planes, while others are completely fictitious. Each one has its own features and a variable arms-bearing capacity. Some of the aircraft are more or less well adapted to certain missions more than others, so you should find your bearings in order to come out on top.

Overall, even if Air Force Delta Storm isn't a masterpiece, it's still a good game for letting off steam. However, you would let yourself be seduced that much easier if it included a rather successful Dolby digital soundtrack, excellent rendering, and very good positioning of the 3D effects.
