Description of Falcon A.T.

Essentially Falcon 2 but somehow marketed differently, Falcon AT is the second release in Spectrum Holobyte's revolutionary hard-core flight sim Falcon series. Despite popular belief that Falcon 3.0 was THE dawn of modern flight sims, Falcon AT actually is already a huge leap over Falcon, sporting sharp EGA graphics, and a lot of realistic options and greatly expanded campaigns. The game is still the simulation of modern air combat, complete with excellent tutorials, varied missions, and accurate flight dynamics that Falcon fans have come to know and love. Among its host of innovations is the amazingly playable multiplayer options-- including hotseat and over the modem. Largely forgotten now, Falcon AT serves to explain the otherwise inexplicable gap between Falcon and Falcon 3.0.

Definitely a groundbreaking simulation in every respect, and a must-have for every armchair pilot. Two thumbs up!

I'm afraid, what you youngsters have missed, is that Falcon AT is not really "Falcon 2", but rather "Falcon" for the more advanced computers of the time.

PCs had the PC XT (eXtended Technology) and then the PC AT (Advanced Technology).

So, Falcon AT, while it followed after -- ie. not simultaneously, nor in a package giving you a "choice" of CGA vs EGA -- "Falcon" (1.0) was the CGA offering, "Falcon AT" (2.0) was the EGA offering, of pretty much the same game.
Admittedly, with the Adv Tech machines, that also meant bigger hard drives so of course that also means more room for mission expansion.. ;)

I didn't get as much enjoyment out of this simulator, mainly because we had only a '286 for so many years, so the play was rather choppy. Loved the experience, though. Once you start playing at the Lt. or Lt. Col. level, you appreciate the expertise of real combat pilots; they're professional heroes. Great game, great series.
