1UP: After Burner Climax Review

There are some goodies thrown into the home version of Climax, namely the EX Options, (tweaks and cheats you unlock as you play the game and complete mini-achievements), which may make it easier for a bystander to grasp and have fun with the game. Some may be disappointed that Climax is "only" a dozen levels long per session and has no multiplayer; that this is "just" a port of an arcade game.

But keep in mind that After Burner has always been a single-player affair, and an '80s twitch game franchise, at that. To see it revived with gorgeous graphics, minimal gameplay gimmicks, and on a download platform is a prime example of how these kinds of games should be done. Play and enjoy After Burner Climax for what it is: a thrill ride.

The story is too old to be commented.
