Chuck Yeager's Air Combat is a classic modern air combat simulation that set new standard for the genre at the time of its release. Designed by Brent Iverson LHX Attack Chopper , the game boasts very realistic controls, a large amount of planes, and nearly endless missions that span 3 theatres of operation. Trixter said it well in his thorough review of this seminal classic for MobyGames: " CYAC is about air combat, pure and simple. You can quickly design your own missions to fly, or jump into over 50 historically-accurate missions across three war periods WWII, Korea, and Vietnam , some of which were recounted by Chuck Yeager himself.
The handling of the planes is perhaps why CYAC is still played by die-hard sim fans today--it's accurate. Not perfect-down-to-the-last-detail accurate, but most planes just feel right. So "right", in fact, that your success at achieving certain mission objectives depends on knowing what you plane can and cannot do. Not only are each plane's specifications listed in the manual, but you can bring up a window with a real-time flight envelope to see how and why your maneuvers are stressing the plane!
Unlike most celebrity endorsements that are shamelessly used to sell a product, Chuck Yeager worked closely with the designers to make the simulation more accurate. His experience in actually flying all of the planes contributed to how they feel in flight and combat, and also helped design certain aspects of the simulation itself the addition of clouds, for example, was something Chuck insisted on, since they can be used to a tactical advantage.
Speaking of which, the simulation was very well coded: Brent Iverson's graphics routines are extremely well-optimized. The game is perfectly playable on a with VGA, and is mostly playable on an if the details settings are turned down.
The 3D plane models are simple enough to be drawn quickly, but complex enough that they don't look like flying bricks. For example, you can switch to the enemy's point of view during playback to see how he snuck up on you! Finally, the documentation that comes with CYAC is exquisitly detailed, with over pages of full-color plates, quick tutorials on air combat maneuvers, a quick-start that shows you the basics, and a full history of war in the sky.
The manual significantly adds to the game's value. There are only two things wrong with CYAC : weak campaigns, and no multiplayer support. The lack of multiplayer support is a real shame, since not only does CYAC provide a great vehicle no pun intended for dogfights, but the Macintosh port does support multiplayer, even over a network!
Come on, Brent, what happened? The bottom line: even today, Chuck Yeager's Air Combat has one of the best "feels" of any combat sim. Since it runs perfectly on any speed machine, you owe it to yourself to give it a whirl. I think that says it all. TheOligopolist 0 point. To get past copy protection run combat. With the current build of dosbox I was getting occasional lockups in the menus when voice clips are supposed to play, you might need to run this through an older build or try a different SVN build to avoid this.
Torito -1 point. How to play this game in Windows 10 64 bits??? Can anyone tell me how to play it??? Or if i need to install an emulator or something??? WW Maverick 2 points. This is the first combat simulator that you really feel the experience of combat plane when you go furball and dogfight.
Rookie 1 point. I have this game which I haven't play for a long time but it is one of my favorite for the fun and learning part of it.
Spanners -1 point. MikeCruiser 0 point. Loved this game years ago - even though by the time I played it it was already old. Finger 64 0 point. RetroGamesRock 1 point. If the graphics can be updated, this will still be a money maker. I used to have Mac version in x resolution, it was much more enjoyable. Wonder who owns the source code, the programming community should be able to polish this up with hi-Rez but keep the game play intact. Rabbid Rabbit -1 point.
Just Sayin P. Jim 1 point. We used state-of-the-art computers back then, with the new MS Windows 3. I still have the 3. I spent hundreds of hours and probably a lot of taxpayers' money flying various missions. The Korean War was my favorite campaign, and I became pretty good at leading Russian Migs back to my base, where I'd shoot them down before bringing my F in for a perfect 3-point landing. Sometimes I'd have to dodge the wreckage of a crippled Mig on the runway while I taxied back to the hangars.
I'm glad to see this game is still around and that others continue to enjoy it as much as I did. It doesn't have the graphix of today but it was awesome for it's time. Zimmerman, Jr. Flew many a missions, shot down many aircraft. Flew both sides. The best combat game ever. LePaul 0 point DOS version. I loved this game! I have yet to find another air combat sim that had the same feel Herr Neuhaus -1 point DOS version. Manual is required for the copy protection questions.
I just found it here. Dist 1 point DOS version. Bob 0 point DOS version. OM 0 point DOS version. This was ahead of its time even a year after it came out. The "There I was Yeager admitted that he wanted nuclear tipped air-to-air missiles as part of the ammo options, but the schmucks at EA refused to include this, as well as a B option to allow you to reenact Hiroshima, Nagasaki, or even drop a Fat Man on Moscow or Berlin. Yet another classic whose true potential and max amount of fun was castrated by some spooge sponge - and I know the name of the bimbo, because she ran off a lot of Origin employees over this "take a bath, as we've got VIPs in the building tomorrow!
Still, Gen. Yeager, your game pushed some envelopes. You have our thanks, sir! Singe the tailfeathers off those Angels for us, eh? Could not get enough of this game! Had such a great time, and I was not really a flight sim kinda guy. The first aerial combat game I play in my teens, lucky for find it again in this site. It's one of the best flight sims ever, for sure. It's all about air combat, and aerial engagements there are very addictive. Diffirent eras, diffirent planes, variety of situation, smart A.
