About this product
- Product InformationAirForce Delta is an air combat game that emphasizes action over a detailed flight model, meaning the focus is on dogfights rather than precision flying with real-world physics. Players start the game on their choice of difficulty setting: very easy, easy, hard, or very hard. The first mission involves a preemptive strike against numerous fighter planes that are planning to bomb the Laconian city of Naxos.
The defenseless Republic of Laconia is in dire need of military support. Rebels from the former Federated Republic of Zabayral have decided to reunitea territory long divided by ethnic conflict. After years of civil war, Laconia is the only republic left standing and has asked a mercenary defense organization to help keep it from falling to the dreaded unification movement.
As a commissioned lieutenant assigned to the Delta Squadron, you are about to embark on a series of over 20 missions in very hostile territories. You have been brought on board because you are the best in the business: a crack pilot who can take out multiple bogeys without batting an eyelash. It is your aerial experience that Laconia is banking on, since you will be alone throughout the campaign.
After seeing your objectives on a 3D map of the surrounding territory, you will be able to take to the skies inside the cockpit of an F-5E Tiger II. The goal is neutralize the invading B1 bombers to save the city from destruction while keeping your plane in one piece. Once you complete the mission, you will be awarded cash and a record of your statistics, such as time of completion, number of kills, and ratio of hits with both your machine guns and missiles. The more fighters you down, the more cash you will receive to purchase planes such as the F-117A Nighthawk, A-10 Thunderbolt II, F-22 Raptor, MiG-29 Fulcrum, and the Russian prototype S-37 Berkut.
Each plane is rated in speed, power, defense, and mobility, and there are over 30 aircraft available to purchase with your hard-earned cash. There is one catch, however: Once you lose a plane, it is gone for good! You will then have to purchase a new plane to continue your mission unless there is one waiting for you in the hangar. Subsequent missions involve flying over the deadly sea trying to sink as many ships as you can, disabling military factories and tanker trucks to cripple the enemy's supply base, and seeking out an SR-71 spy plane to keep it from making contact with the unification forces.
A number of options are available to would-be pilots, including two control configurations (novice and expert), an option to assign button functions, and the ability to customize the heads-up display settings. Missions will end if one of the following occurs: Your plane's damage meter falls to zero, you crash into the land or sea, you move too far away from the target area, or you exceed the allotted time to complete an objective. If you manage to avoid these dangers and complete a mission, a replay will let you see all of the action from a number of perspectives. In order to save data, a VMU is required with at least 14 blocks of free space.

Best Arcade Flight Sim on Dreamcast
I have only played flight sim games on pc and was really surprised to discover this great game on dreamcast. It’s an old game which is almost a decade old, but i had to test my flight joystick(Panther). I had a problem loading the game because i bought it from ebay for $6 with some scratches. After i got past the main screen i had a choice of planes to purchase, but since i had no money which you get for shooting down enemies, i had to pick my default plane. I have completed the first couple of missions in about an hour because i picked the easiest setting. But about half was through the game i started having difficulty completing some missions because of time limit and more enemies. I finally got enough money to buy a descent plane and none of the enemy planes could touch me.There are escort missions,protect the target, and take out an enemy objectives. The real challenge came during the last two levels which i had to restart numerous times and by that time i could afford to buy most of all the planes. There are different variety of enemies such as ground,sea, and air. But the most challenging is the air targets, especially when you have to chase them and you have limited amount of time. I was using a Panther flight stick and didn’t have a chance yet to try standard controller. The flight stick was awesome, it responded quickly and all buttons have its own distinct function. I would recommend playing this game with a flight stick, if you can find it. It just feels like you’re in the game when using the joystick. The graphics are as you expect on console made in 1999, pixalated in some parts. The plane detail is pretty good for a console flight sim and looks very similar to real plane. The ground texture look good from above, but really pixalated when close. This game is on Dreamcast,so don’t expect a real flight sim, this is just an arcade port. You can buy this game on Ebay or Amazon for under $10. Just have fun. Read full review

air force delta review
Let me start off by saying that I love this game. It's one of the flying games that's underestimated for its time. I love flying games every once in a while usually, but this one makes me strap into my game chair for hours on end. It's pretty old, so you have to bare with the graphics. You have to remember though, that this is when flying (as with most) games were relatively still in their infancy. I wasn't really into fighter jet games before I played this game years ago, and I haven't really been all that into them since. I do recommend anyone to check it out, it's very enjoyable, and will keep you interested.

You’ve been contracted by a mercenary to take to the skies and perform various tasks. You are even offered bonuses after every successful hit you make, and after each mission you are given a tactical evaluation to judge your performance. With 30 different planes to choose from, ranging from the F4 Phantom to the F-22, you won’t have any difficulty finding the right aircraft to suit all your needs. AIRFORCE DELTA also offers various high-intensity missions, each with different objectives, so you’ll have to make sure you choose the right plane for each mission.

So for all you Mavericks out there, make sure to pick up this title for some high-paced, fast-action fun! Read full review

Not bad...could be better...SEGA!
Graphics are decent, nothing to scream about. All the planes fly the same (and shoot the same) with the exception of some handling and speed. Really good for it's day...looks a bit dated though using the VGA and a flatscreen, as the rough edges jump out a bit more. If purchased, use the standard connections...it's keeps the picture a bit smoother...
