FALCON PATROL 2
Virgin Games / £7.95

Roger: It would be easy to heap abuse on this game, but I'm not sure whether it really deserves it!
The format of aerial combat with relatively limited sophistication in VTOL aircraft control, some repetitive scrolling scenery and a variety of unpleasant helicopters bopping about looking for a missile in the laughing gear, is so tired and unoriginal that I started groaning as soon as it was loaded ...
Assuming that it'd take less time to get good at - and bored with - than it takes Pete Shaw to hack into a ham sandwich, I scrambled into action and discovered that it was just a little bit tougher than first expected. Learning 'vectoring' and the technique of diving to fire missiles downwards stretched my involvement and, finally, I got a bit hooked.
Sure, it's corny. Nevertheless, it's competent arcade thuggery and, if valued as such, earns its keep. 3/5

Dave: Deep down, I've always wanted to blast helicopters out of the sky ... trouble is, most programs don't give you that authenticity. Falcon Patrol 2, on the other hand, fulfills all of my warmongering ambitions. Great stuff let's see more, please. 4/5

Ross: The graphics in this game are amazing ... top marks to Virgin's back- room programmers. A vast improvement over Falcon Patrol. 5/5
