Behind Enemy Lines
brings new planes, new missions, and a great new story line to the Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator. Here's the scenario - it's just about D-Day and all the action comes from a carrier in the Mediterranean. There are 30 missions in which you can fly for either the British RAF or the German Luftwaffe. Judging from the title, Behind Enemy Lines
, you would expect to be in hostile territory, shooting down the enemy. Well, that's true, but there's more. The missions that you are given are all covert operations. Sometimes you fly recon, sometimes you dogfight, sometimes you just have to drop things off (or pick them up). I thought that this was a great idea. I enjoyed the concept as well as the implementation. I enjoyed all of the missions and found that this greatly enhanced the WW II genre of fighters.
As a unique feature, the planes offered radio communication. This is a one way radio; you must maintain radio silence. Basically, you are instructed during your mission by a radio message. This is nice - you don't have to waste time reading while you concentrate on flying.
