Usually, I can get past dated graphics, but F-16 Multirole Fighter truly puts me off. Not only the visuals didn't aged well, the controls aren't intuitive and even properly explained. No tutorial / training mode doesn't help either! The game does support the XBOX 360 gamepad to a point but you would be better of playing this game with Keyboard though. The gameplay is slow and bland/boring. The audio (sound/music) aren't that great either. Also, don't seek out this game for the multiplayer as it is quite dead! Maybe you could play in LAN but I haven't nor I am willing to give it a shot!
+Works on modern computers and XBOX 360 gamepad is supported, but barely!
+Simulation seems adequate from what I played.
-Dated visuals, graphics.
-Game doesn't support full screen.
-Controls aren't very intuitive.
-No tutorial / training mode so you are left out figuring the controls for yourself.
-Poor audio (sounds and music).
-While in-game, you can't view/edit the options and even the controls. This is a nasty CON!
-Dead Multiplayer (to be expected though).
I'm sure this game could have been decent back in 1998 but now in 2014, I prefer investing time on more modern games, as should you!
I would recommend F-16 Multirole Fighter to flight simulation purists and gamers that dig old school gaming only. As for newcomers, you should stay away and look into modern games instead!
Also, since you cannot buy a single Novalogic classic and "forced" to buy the Novalogic Classics Volume One: Machines of War package, you better think twice before investing in this as I only found one game worth of purchase, Commanche 4. If you can find this package on a very good and drastic deal, give it a shot. Better, look somewhere else if you can buy a single game at a time.
