Exhibit - Falcon

Commodore Amiga version

" Now, I know everybody raves about this one, and YES, I do know it was good in lots of aspects, but I honestly thought this one ( at least in it's original version ) was lacking when compared to the likes of F16 Combat Pilot.

The graphics were beautiful for the time, and the speed of the game was superb. The sound of that afterburner kicking in was music to the ears. The MiG's were a great opponent.

The thing that I found a shame was that the original missions were one-off's. There was no campaign structure. It must be said ( before I start getting too much hate mail ) that the mission disks helped cure the problem by giving you a "dynamic" campaign to work on - and here in the UK ( don't know if this was the case anywhere else ), when the original Falcon was re-released on a budget label, it had been re-worked using the same updates as on the mission disk so the original missions then became a true campaign. "

MiGMan thanks Rob "Bomber" Henderson for these recollections.
