OXCGN’s After Burner Climax (XBLA) Review – A Blast From The Past


"Many veteran gamers would have fond memories of the late 80’s After Burner arcade machines with their tilting cockpit hydraulics and frenetic jet fighter physics.

The game was rejuvenated in 2006 with a new entry titled After Burner Climax; and it’s this version that has made its way onto the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace." (AfterBurner Climax, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

I like plane games but am probably more into the flight sims...

Yeah, def. not a flight sim.
This game looks like a flight sim to those who have never heard of the series before.

I thought my friend was going to like it because he was big on flight simulators, i'm not into them btw, but he hated it and I ended up really liking it.

I think I should play the old ones if i can.

I LOVED this game in the arcades MANY many moons ago, there were a few different cockpits that they had for it, but the best as this huge one that almost encased you, had forward, left and right and diagonal movement in the entire cockpit.

The sound was truly amazing. I think I spent way too much $$ in it over the years, and while many gamers gravitated to the likes of racing games, my backside stayed glued to this.

Excellent game for some basic arcade air flight fun.

It's great to see such a good variety of games come to XBLA and PSN. It's just that I generally don't hear much about them! Big retail releases seem to be what we hear the most about!
