Ace 1 & 2

Superb aerial action for flight freaks here as Elite have bunched together both ACE jetfighter blasts onto one budget delight. Goggle up and prepare for some excellent cockpit views as you choose from a whole host of mission options. There are dogfights, air-to ground and air-to ship attacks to choose from, so take it easy at first until you get a feel for the controls, them let them know you're there.

One of the best aspects of these games is the two player mode. As a fighter pilot, there are just too many controls for you to keep your eyes on to worry about targets, so bring a friend along for the ride and get him to work your tail guns or pinpoint strategic enemy targets for blasting.

Working together as a team, both games offer plenty of entertainment and if you want to know if you've scored a hit, just take a look behind you.

Keep plugging away for the all-important title of Air Ace, and make sure you get that certificate of success. Don't worry if you don't come near at first, it's deliberately tough to make sure that only the very best will make it to the top.
