The Korean War: 1950

With closing attack speeds of up to 1,000 mph and without the luxury of modern radar-guided missiles, get up close to the enemy and wait until you see the whites of his eyes before consigning him to oblivion. Take control of 5 totally authentic 1950's fighters and bombers, from the agile Russian MiG 15, to the awesome American F86 Sabre. MiG Alley takes you to the very heart of the bloody Korean conflict with mini campaigns to full scale offensives, as well as a fully dynamic battle system. The entire ground offensive push depends on your prowess in the air. One of the fastest, most graphic, action-packed historical flight sims around, MiG Alley is a battle of tactics, skill and, above all, nerve.

Reviews:

The Adrenaline Vault by Chris Harding

"...The diversity and attention to detail of each flight model is what impressed me first. Within minutes of my inaugural experience with the F86 Sabre, I felt as though I understood what pilots actually flying one of the first jet fighters in history must have gone through. It felt a little like driving a stock car or a really powerful muscle car. The engines were like caged beasts fighting to get out, and with only a few nuts and bolts binding together thin sheets of metal, the overwhelming feeling you get as the pilot is that the plane could burst apart at any moment."

"...There's no getting around the fact that Empire's latest foray into air war is a sophisticated one. It's complex, has a steep learning curve, and requires a gamer with the patience to learn its ins and outs. That said, MiG Alley's flight model is fully scalable, and its difficulty settings are powerful enough that most newcomers will be able to find a measure of success. While MiG Alley may not be the best choice for simulation initiates, it's still the best product of its type to come along in ages."

"Having been completely enthralled with MiG Alley for some time, it's easy to get lost in its deeply involving gameplay. The standard missions are pure fun, and the campaigns are completely captivating. The action is full of realism, and will impress even the most astute flight sim jockey. Furthermore, for newcomers and flight sim enthusiasts not keen on having to have an aeronautics degree to have fun, MiG Alley also has a ton of interface tools that make flying and fighting more fun than ever before."
