Game description

When you climb into the cockpit of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, get set for the "flight of your life" as the powerful FALCON F-16 takes you streaking across the sky at Mach 2. Accurate weapons system, head-up-displays, cockpit controls, and overall flight characteristics make this the ultimate in simulations. The enemy MiGs you encounter are resourceful and very skilled.

Whether you are a novice pilot or a real "top gun," FALCON is for you! 3-D graphic images of buildings, forests, freeways, and bridges flash by as you fly at the speed of sound only 150 feet above the deck. Take out bridges, power stations, tanks, airfields, and SAM sites. Even fly with an F-16 wingman as you take on one of the many daring missions.

"Sweaty palms" and a pounding heart are normal occurrences during dogfight engagements in FALCON. Mastering the most effective use of your heat-seeking missiles, Maverick missiles, bombs and cannon systems will determine your destiny. The MiG-21's will be merciless. FALCON - you won't believe it!

The start of a great but now very outdated series

Falcon was originally released in 1984 on the MSX as F-16 Fighting Falcon but later was called Falcon for its DOS release in 1987. The game is the start of a series of well received flight simulators that were praised for their graphics, gameplay, and realism. As was common, there was little in the way of sound and what there was could end up getting annoying. You are able to play 12 different missions with five difficulty options and can attempt to get different medals to increase the replay value of the game. The only real reason to play this now is nostalgia and wanting to relieve those old memories, you are going to be able to find better things that are more modern and the sequels to this are going to be a better option if you were looking to play an old flight simulator with more content and realistic planes. A better purchase would be the Falcon Gold which includes the third game and its expansion which vastly improves the graphics and sound and gives you more missions.
