Enjoy this fast paced action combat game where you don’t have to memorize forty separate cockpit controls before engaging in battle. Vector Thrust is full of wild and challenging antics. The games arcade approach makes you feel like a physics defying rebel with a cause. Every plane is different which is nice when you are dueling with a myriad of Ace fighter squadrons.

The story Campaign offers thirteen different missions. There is an array of assignments ranging from fighter wing duals, to bombing runs, to escort objectives. The first few challenge missions restrict you to ageing Soviet fighters, but that is only temporary. With a few thousand credits you can upgrade and you’ll be zipping around in an F-16 before you know it. Just be careful corkscrewing around like a maniac so you don’t end up as a smoldering blot on the side of a mountain.
