I have to say the game looks good. It still has the action you remember from the classic, but with a fresh coat of paint that looks awesome on a HD television. You can select from four different fighter planes, the refueling plane is still there and of course the lock on missile feature where you can take out a ton of bad guys at the same time.

At only 800 Microsoft points it’s definitely a game you will want to add to your collection. Too bad it doesn’t come with the rotating cockpit.
