A follow-up to Microsoft's acclaimed PC title Crimson Skies, High Road to Revenge continues the adventures of crack pilot Nathan Zachary as he sets out to avenge the death of his best friend in alternate 1930s America. The game focuses on the action associated with flying a plane rather than the technical aspects of a simulation, so players will engage in dogfights using one of ten planes armed with napalm missiles, magnetic grapples, and sandstorm cannons. Each of the landscapes offer destructible terrain, allowing players to shoot down bridges, water towers, create landslides, and more to help in defeating enemies. In addition to the single-player story mode, up to four pilots can battle each other in a series of split-screen sorties. Less

FASA Corporation's cyberpunk role-playing game is the inspiration for this futuristic first-person shooter from the development team behind such titles as MechWarrior, MechAssault, and Crimson Skies. Loosely based on the pen-and-paper RPG, Shadowrun for Xbox 360 and PC takes place in the year 2021, where advanced technology and arcane magic are both used in warfare between the RNA, a ruthless megacorporation, and the Lineage, a resistance force. Players will choose either side as they engage in team-based combat supporting up to 16 players via Xbox Live. <br><br>An offline training mode is included to help players perfect their shooting skills against AI bots, but the heart of the game is its multiplayer component. To ensure the widest possible community, Shadowrun features cross-platform technology, allowing both PC and Xbox 360 owners to team up or compete against one other in an assortment of game types. Each faction offers a choice of human, elf, dwarf, and troll characters with distinct racial traits, such as health regeneration and technical skill. In between battles, players can purchase magic, technology, or weapons to use in combat, from vision enhancements to teleportation spells. Less

Good airlplane games have always been hard to find no matter what system you look on. Back in the old PC games all of the irplane simulators were so in-depth you really needed a pilot license to understand what you were doing. Later, more arcade style games of this genre would come out that were... Read full review »

Pros Tight controls, fun gameplay, nice graphics.
Cons Short in single player...more "fly through the canyon" missions.
Recommended it? Yes

Flight combat games have been one of my favorite niche genres ever since I'd played the original Red Baron on my PC. That thing must have been running at, like, 3 frames a second when there were 4 or more planes on the screen, but damn if I wasn't having a good time every 1/3rd of a second. I'd...
