This is an action game in which players assume the role of a pilot engaging in aerial combat missions. Players control realistic aircraft as they destroy ships in the sea, shoot down enemy planes, and take out military vehicles within a field map. Planes are equipped with machine gun turrets, bombs, and rockets; targets explode in a burst of smoke and flames when hit. The constant radio chatter heightens the intensity of the violence: characters shout "May Day, May Day!" or scream expletives when they are about to crash (e.g., "Dammit! Damn it all! Damn it all to hell!!"); characters are also heard agonizing over the death of comrades or complaining about their military leaders (e.g., "those cold, heartless bastards!").
