This is an air combat game in which players pilot realistic military aircraft in missions that include striking convoys, protecting targets, and destroying enemy warships. Players use machine guns, missiles, and bombs to destroy various targets (e.g., enemy fighter jets, tanks, buildings, boats, and cave hideouts). Battles can be frenetic and are highlighted by realistic explosions, gunfire, and dramatic radio chatter (e.g., "Can you read me? Air Defense - aaahhhhh!!!" and He's down! Liberty, Striker Lead is down! Simms is dead!"). Some dialogue contains the words "sh*t," "a*s," and "b*tch."
