nice review - one of the great flight sims from Microprose, i think they really improved on their AI with this one too, as i felt like the AI in some of hte older sims like F117A didnt really do too much to avoid being shot down - and perhaps that wasnt really the main emphasis of that game, but fligth defender, wow - i was just playing this with a thrilling 1 on 1 dogfight with a Mig 29 and it was on a knife edge with trying to get a better turn on it - it took a while but finally i did and success, but not without some damage.

That is true. We still lack those disk images.

I had the idea F29 Retaliator was a bit more arcadey than other simulators that came from Microprose or Spectrum Holobyte.
It seems to have been a really popular title for the Amiga, a machine i never had contact with, despite me being European and all, my first machine was a Timex 2048 computer (Portuguese made ZX Spectrum clone with several enhancements).

It was my very first PC flightsim, and back then (i think year 1994 or 1995) i was very much impressed with it :)Its chief advantage is high responsiveness, unprecedented for a flightsim.
