Hi all
Just got this two days ago, and I am having more fun than any other sim I can't fly. Think I will live with it and learn it -despite the graphics. Can land it fly it and complete the missions, at least up to now as a rookie. Got fed up with the cardboard undercarriage in F4 and only landing F18 1 in 15 times. Anyway they are too hard for me, although, I feel that I might learn F18 in time.
Any more feedback on Op.Icebreaker from those of you who can fly it (Uroboros?)

It's nice to hear folk *still* finding EF2000 out!

That was my first REAL sim that i bought in 1995,then i got the TACTCOM upgrade about a year later. All with the original manuals

I have EF2000 running in 3DFX on my old DOS machine and it's never left my HDD since *'95!*
I bought Super EF2000 V2.0 from America for about 12.99 a few years back -complete with original manual so that i could continue playing through Win98/se.

EF2000 is a beautiful sim and truly held the King of All sims title around the world when it was released for 2years. The RAF bought a 4million version of EF2000 for training it's pilots and DID built the TIALD trainer for the Jaguar/Tornado pilots.

Graphics mean *nothing* when you look at the sheer beauty of the work and campaign options that you have in a sim that's not far of 10years old!!

Hmmmm,not sure if I'm going to take this one back. I kind of like it, but the way it just dumps you into the campaign....
The reason I liked the first one was the way it built into a story. This one feels like a bunch of missions hurridly thrown together to make a quick buck before Rage moves on.


Happiness is a warm hum.
