Amazon.com Review
Ever wonder what qualifications some strategy guide authors have and what makes them such authorities on the game in question? When it comes to Falcon 4, the long-awaited and generally heralded F-16 jet combat simulation, Prima decided it was best to bring in some big guns. Peter Bonanni and James Reiner are both F-16 instructor pilots and graduates of the F-16 Fighter Weapons School. They also consulted on the development of the game, so it's safe to say that when these guys talk dogfighting tactics, they know what they're talking about. Still, this is the sort of book that is probably best suited for hardcore flight sim enthusiasts (which, come to think of it, is pretty much the demographic matching Falcon 4 players...). Beginning with some basics on the game and the various gameplay options, the book gives readers a quick and dirty guide to instant action missions, multiplayer dogfights, and full-fledged campaigns. After that, this guide is all business--I mean, any book that devotes separate chapters to laser-guided bombs and the AGM-65 Maverick missile is a hardcore title indeed. Studying the wealth of information in this guide, Falcon 4 pilots should be able to improve their skills in a hurry. In fact, after going through this manual a few times, you might just feel ready to take a real F-16 out for a spin...
