Comments - F-117A runs very well on a 386 and is a "thinking person's sim" emphasising tactical thinking over reflexes. The sim was a major enhancement and re-release of F-19 (1988) by Sid Meier.
F-117A Stealth Fighter has been referred to as "the mother of all sims" due to the many innovations it presented and the atmospheric way the sim is presented. It set standards of gameplay which have probably never been exceeded.
The sim was a major enhancement and re-release of F-19 (1988) by Sid Meier.
