Nighthawk: F117-A Stealth Fighter 2.0

From the Database of Home of the Underdogs

GAME DESIGNER:Jeffery Briggs



Copyright 1991, MicroProse

The more or less average sequel to F-19 Stealth Fighter. From MobyGames description: “take America’s premiere stealth fighter out for a spin in several battle areas, including the Persian Gulf, Cuba, and even Vietnam. There are various scenarios for each, with air-to-air or ground missions, in “cold war” and full-scale war situations. Players can build up their pilot ranks through completed missions and medals.”

F-117A is a solid sim overall, but doesn’t really stand out from the crowd. It’s fun initially, but the missions soon become repetitive, and there is little variation in terrain or sky graphics to hold your attention. The night missions in particular are more tedious than fun, as you will have to strain your eyes to make out objects in the dark, radar notwithstanding. Overall, a good attempt that could have been much better, given the pedigree of other MicroProse flight sim.
