Title - JetFighter 5 Release Date - 2003 Developer - Interactive Vision Publisher -
Globalstar Software Collection - - Yes Comments - JetFighter 5was released in 2003 under the title of "Jetfighter". It is a stunning looking sim which still serves the purpose of providing an action arena for neophytes to the genre, but old hands will be frustrated by the lack of controls and options. For example the F.A.Q. at the official website says that you can't land on a carrier. That's strictly accurate, you can land on a carrier - you just can't STOP on a carrier! There's no arrestor gear and take-off - ( which is possible to set up in an instant mission - just select carrier 1 or 2 as your starting point) - consists of going full throttle then pressing "W" to release the wheelbrakes. The lack of carrier ops in the campaign is a sad let-down from the heady days of Jetfighter III.
