The game has the same plot as Theatre Europe in as much as the game involves the Warsaw Pact countries attacking Europe from the East German border. Where this game differs is in the detail it features.
I feel that US Gold has tried to be too authentic here... to reach the throttles and rudder trim controls, you have to change view to right or left! Very distracting in the middle of a dogfight I can tell you.
Gunrunner has the typical slick Hewson look. It looks very good and handles well, but it just doesn't have that elusive addictiveness about it that can transform a very good game into an excellent one.
Frame one is fine, lots of sinister, lasciviously winking eyes in the background - but what reward do you reap for getting to frame two? A bunch of Mobantian slag-heaps is what. I made my excuses and left.
