Konami's action-oriented flight combat series continues with AirForce Delta Storm, a follow-up to 1999's AirForce Delta on the Dreamcast. The setting is the year 20X1, where two factions battle for control of Earth's dwindling resources. As a pilot for the United Front, players must protect their allies while neutralizing enemies both in the air and on the ground. A total of 50 distinct missions are available, from destroying enemy fleets to cutting off supply routes.
Players receive cash and statistics after each mission, such as time of completion, number of kills, and ratio of hits using machine guns and missiles. The more downed fighters, the more cash to purchase new planes. Each plane is rated in such areas as speed, power, defense, and mobility, with over 70 aircraft available to purchase. Among the featured planes are the EF2000 Typhoon, MiG-27 Froger J, A-7 Corsair II, Su-27 Flanker, F/A-18C Hornet, and the Harrier II.
A number of options are available to would-be pilots, including two control configurations (novice and expert), two view types (cockpit or behind the aircraft), and the ability to customize the heads-up display settings. Missions will end if one of the following occurs: the plane's damage meter falls to zero, it crashes into the land or sea, it moves too far away from the target area, or the allotted time to complete an objective is exceeded. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
