Product Description

Product Description

Lock On: Modern Air Combat combines a broad scope of gameplay that includes a dynamic battle generator, an immersive combat environment, robust multi-player options and in-your-face action.

Players will feel at home in the cockpit of these world-class fighters and they can easily jump into authentic combat action. Each aircraft is rendered in exceptional detail and performs just like its real world counterpart. Players can choose from eight US and Russian jets that range from tank-killing A-10 Warthogs and ground-pounding Su-25 Frogfoots to air-superiority fighters like the F-15C Eagle and the Su-27 Flanker.

Intuitive and in-depth training missions will instruct players on the basics and advanced tactics of aerial engagements, navigation and weapons use. You can take part in a customisable single-player campaign or take advantage of a powerful multi-player experience (head-to-head and cooperative play). Meticulously detailed terrain mapping covers a gloriously 3-D rendered landscape.

I've had great fun with this sim in the two weeks that I've had it. The game features absolutely leading-edge graphics, including the best cockpits I've seen yet - far superior to those offered by FS2004, IL2 or CFS3. The range of flyable aircraft is quite small, but includes very different machines ranging from the lumbering A-10 to the elegant Su-33 so this isn't likely to be a problem. There is a series of campaigns, a robust multiplayer mode and a good mission editor. Anyone who is familiar with other air combat sims like IL2-Forgotten Battles will feel right at home immediately.
The game has some excellent strengths. The graphics can be of jaw-dropping beauty and it's a real pleasure just to watch your aircraft moving over detailed and believable landscapes and clouds. The flyable aircraft themselves have very detailed 3D models and a range of skins as standard. There is a tremendous variety of AI aircraft from AWACS to strike aircraft like the Su-24. There are also detailed ships and tanks etc, so mission building is a delight. The AI is also very well developed and generally engages in sensible tactics, such as turning to out-run missiles at long range etc. The AI can also be surprised if you sneak up on it from behind, which makes a pleasant change from the all-seeing AI implemented in other air combat games. There is lively and helpful online community, which is also a definite plus.
There's a flip side to all this, of course. The game requires a pretty good PC to get the best out of it and the minimum listed specs sound rather optimistic. My copy runs smoothly on a 2.4 GHz P4, 1 GB RAM, Radeon 9700 Pro system, but does get slow-down close to the ground or when there is a lot of smoke effects etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best. 24 Mar 2005
When this game arrived I was actually shocked at its sheer graphical quality. With all the settings up to high, this is really beautiful. The Movie view (equivalent of control tower in FS2004) is almost photorealistic and is accompanied by awesome sound which shook the ceiling as the F16 shot past. Seeing the 747 fly an approach in FS2004 is beautiful but imagine a similar experience with a fully loaded F16 with fully functional radar and weapons systems and intelligent enemies. Fantastic. The ground detail is also surprisingly good. Quality 3D buildings and trees and a good overall terrain make for a highly impressive start. Nice coastal effects too - none of the straight lines seen in FS2004 occasionally. The tank/armoured car/helicopter/plane models are exceptionally good and certainly seem easily as good as I have ever seen. And it all ran exceptionally smoothly - but then it really should on the rig I have - AMD3800, ATI Radeon X800, 1GB RAM.
This brings me on to the next point. The enemies really are rather intelligent - this game is not Crimson Skies. It will not be possible to load it up, select fly mission and be victorious. More likely you will undergo the same process as me. Notice enemy plane in distance - Hear warning of incoming missile - Right engine fire - Eject - Eject - Eject. There is howevere an excellent set of around 20 tutorial flights taking you through all the flight dynamics, weapons systems and dog fighting techniques required. After about 5 hours of practice, reading the manual and referring to the internet you will be mixing it up with the best of them - and then this game really comes in to its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate for the real flightsim enthusiast 29 Feb 2004
Since about 2 months, I own LOMAC and I must confess, that I am completely addicted to this game now.
I have played with a lot of flightsim and combatsim games, but this is one of the best, not to say the best until now.
The specifications of LOMAC are very impressive: 8 beautifull designed planes are a joy to fly; the area is very detailed with (says the manual) 180.000 houses, 500 bridges, 1.700 towns and villages.
I have now about 60 flying hours and had not a single problem with hardware lock-ups or similar: the package installed without any problem and have functioned without problems since.
With my system, I have 25-35 fps with medium settings (which give still impressive graphics).
At the start, I flew all the different planes just like flying a flight simulator (if you wish, you can also fly without combat) to get a feeling for the flight dynamics and all the planes not only fly great and feel realistic, but are also stunning to look at.
After that, I took the A10 for the combat missions and at this time, I am halfway the A10 campaign. In the campaign, the missions are of course more challenging, the further you get in it.
You have the possibility to fly air to air, air to ground, you have warships and you can play online.
To make things not to difficult, you have the option to make different inputs to ease things and I have made: "easy radar" and "labels on".
The game is furthermore very rewarding in medals and promotions, so you know you are doing something for something.
When you like to make your own missions, there is a very good editor for it with extensive possibilities to make things you want them.
I like the sim very much and can recommend it to everyone with flightsim interest in these modern combatplanes and the more, if you also like combatsimming a bit.
