Apple Flies with F/A-18 & Enemy Engaged
7:49 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Apple has posted a feature on two war flight simulators made available for the Mac. The first, F/A-18: Operation Iraqi Freedom, allows gamers to tackle various missions in the war on Iraq, while the second, Enemy Engaged: Comanche vs. Hokum, leans more towards an open campaign involving helicopter combat.
Both games, however, find common ground in two areas: both strive to accurately simulate air combat — F/A-18 tackling fighter jets and Enemy Engaged addressing helicopters — and both used publicly available satellite data to create realistic maps for players to fly over. In fact, Razorworks and GraphSim encountered similar problems trying to stitch the satellite data into cohesive landscapes.Details discussed in the feature include the various multiplayer features, the realism of each title, and the various campaign modes. A link to an Enemy Engaged demo, as well as a tips page for each title, is also provided.
