Review:

Air Combat is a 1st generation PlayStation title that really shines. Namco outdid themselves with this fun flight simulator/action adventure title. The graphics are outstanding and there is a ton of voice dialogue and very catchy music. There is a lot of fun to be had with Air Combat, although it is a bit on the short side. The 2-player versus mode is a blast with a friend, and adds lastability to the title.
