    F-22 Interceptor

F-22 Interceptor is a 1991 flight simulator created by Ned Lerner and Gene Kusmiak. It was released by Electronic Arts and Ingram Entertainment for the Mega Drive/Genesis.
The player controls one aircraft, the F-22 Raptor, throughout the game. At that time, the real aircraft was known as the YF-22 Lightning II, and had only first flown in 1990. Like LHX Attack Chopper, another flight simulator by EA, the playable aircraft had not yet been developed.
The player has three skill levels to choose from: Cadet, Training, and Combat. The player must then pick one of four campaigns: the USA, Korea, Iraq, and Russia. In each level, the player’s F-22 is targeted by surface-to-air missiles, enemy aircraft, and artillery. The mission is to destroy the targets and complete the objectives using a wide range of missiles, from heat seeking missiles, precision-guided bombs, and chaffs. The aircraft is also given two cannons for engaging enemy targets.
At the end of each mission, the player is required to either land on a runway or an aircraft carrier. Sometimes in-flight refueling is needed to prevent the F-22 from crashing. As the game progresses, the player will be able to unlock an Aces campaign, where he will face off with advanced pilots from North Korea, Iraq, Russia, and the US. The game also had a rudimentary mission editor.

Thirty-eight pro football teams go head-to-head in John Madden Football ’93. There are 28 teams updated for the 1992-’93 season, two All-Madden teams, and eight greatest-ever teams. These teams are represented by city names and position ratings. Apparently Electronic Arts didn’t get the rights for team mascots, logos, or player names.
Madden ’93 introduces several new features to the Madden series, including a split play calling screen, the ability to overturn close calls, a no huddle offense, and player taunting. You can call a play and watch it unfold or command the action every step of the way. One or two players can compete in competitive or cooperative gridiron action. This is the second game in the Super NES John Madden series.
John Madden Football 93 set the standard for SNES football games. It was the best football game out there in 1992 and part of a multi-million cartridge selling franchise.

Graphically and technically it’s better than its PlayStation counterpart, with more cars, brighter and better graphics and better crash damage, which includes the hoods and trunks of cars flying off in hard collisions. The cars that the player start out with are rather basic generic saloons painted up for racing and smashing. There are 24 cars in all. The player start out with 12 that are just plain style cars painted up to look more like race cars. But, there are 12 secret cars that you earn by doing championship mode and time trials.

  • Command & Conquer for the Nintendo 64 (1999)
This deep into 1999, the N64 is just now getting it’s first real time strategy battle game and the verdict is appropriately bittersweet.

Command & Conquer 64

To their credit, Looking Glass developed Command & Conquer with all of the elements you want from a quality RTS. The problem is the genre in 1999 is much richer and more thorough than it was in 1995, which is when the N64 version of Command & Conquer was born. While the game plays fine and a good time will be had, it’s tough to escape the feeling of delayed deja vu and and the feeling of loss from not having a multiplayer experience.
