The campaign is what is on display here and the first part of that is about showcasing the fighter jet. From the outset it is clear that Assault Horizons is an attempt to make this a more appealing game to the masses. The introduction of a story line and the fact that you are playing as characters seems to cement this. My memory of the older games in the series is that they were purely combat simulation games, with very little attempt to attract you with plot and characterisation. As soon as the demo hands over control to you, you find yourself in a dog fight.
