"Fantastic!"
5 stars"

Even though its a bit dated now, from beginning to end it is truely a wild ride! don't expect a “flying sim” type game, this is all about the action!

The voice acting and characterisation is top notch.

If you like the idea of a flying game where you get to hug the terrain then this is the game!

Description

As the handsome and daring air pirate, Nathan Zachary, players take to skies filled with treacherous air pirates, giant aircraft carrier zeppelins, and the ever-changing political landscape of a fractured United States.
