Wow, one of my favourite flight sims of all time, alongside the first one I ever played, which was F19 Stealth Fighter. Easy to jump into, great fun to play. I spent many hours on this when I was probably about 11-12.

It's a war flight simulator, not too complicated but not an arcade either. You have a very gratifying feeling of being on a plane looking around yourself, looking at the plane from the outside, while you can see the weapon reaching the enemy among other views, but all simply and harmoniously with the keyboard. You are required to take off and land even to refuel or rearm the plane. This simple matter of landing is already a differential that makes the simulation be immersive looking real. and landing is challenging but not nearly impossible ... it's affordable. Navigation is simple so that you understand and locate easily on the map. The missions are varied and quite interesting. One of the incredible sensations is landing at an airport at night or after a tough mission watching the sunset as you return home. The game is perfect, it would be awesome if they had improved the graphics without moving anything at all.

one of the best category simulators I've ever played. I don't understand how they haven't done anything so good gameplay to date. At least I didn't find it. They invest a lot in graphics and forget about good and simple gameplay.

Works great, although clicking "hints/notes" from the main menu seems to make the game unresponsive.

U realize this is the f-22 Raptor .... like 22 years later.. RIGHT!
AND I'm in a POLICE RAPO or HAPO community city, have been tortured by the millionaires per capita counsel, owe 53,000 to its leader, had my daughter sold to a molster in Daton and am compleatly suicidaly homicidal toward the serial rapist police officers here like the El Pasco WA... Shit.

You can play JF2 just fine in DOSBOX, just set the cycles to 12000 in order to have 486-33 performance which will make it buttery smooth.
You can even play the original JF, but you need to set the CPU type as 386-prefetch in DOSBOX settings.

Played this game for hours on end.
Was addicted. From 20,000ft and 10 miles out could dead stick land on the aircraft carrier 3 out of 5 times. Missions were amazing. Never grew tired of this game.
Unbelievably realistic and relaxing escape.
Why this game was discontinued I have no idea. Would have bought upgrades without batting an eye.

My friend and I would play this all the time in the early 90s. We would take two chairs one in front of the other. One of us would run the controller, who would fly the plane and the other would sit right behind the pilot with the key board and run that. It was like the real thing so fun when we were Kids

Loved this game. Exactly right mix of flying and tactics. Does anyone remember you could land a plane UPSIDE DOWN (i.e. inverted?). Also, some missions, you could land and then shoot down other aircraft with missiles, whilst stationary! My favourite was flying round the Golden Gate Bridge, both over and under the spans.....

I love this game back then. I STILL have it on an old pc. It's in storage.
I used all Thrust Master controls. Had a self made/dyi sound/game chair.
I wish the company had improved the graphics & left the game basically the same. Also wish they had made it multi-player.
Their following Jet Fighter games were MAJOR disappointments. I followed them ALL. STILL have them all. The last one IS beautiful BUT, They left out an important thing, the auto-pilot feature. BUMMER huh? I now have more video AND processor power. I hope they'd come out with another JS2.
Check Six fellas,

remember playing this in early 90's. Fun game. Sometimes I would not fly the mission, just go to LA airport and avoid being attacked. Flying around S.F. Oakland area fun. Remember to land and it gives you more fuel...don't remember if that gave you reloaded weapons....

There is a (sort of) bombing target cheat. If you cut your engines to 30% and then go to external view, when the target gets between your wing and a certain part of the cockpit, if you release bombs you get really high accuracy....

I think I still have the manual somewhere (photocopied, of course). Reloaded and tried to play again a few years ago, but it always crashed when loading a game, which someone told me was the way in which it addressed video memory. Anyone still able to play it today with their original files? Is this download a modified file that works with today's computer technology? Eric, emuench at gmail

Anyone know how to get the sound to work. in todays world. Im using this in a VM. I remember this being a pain when i had it back in the 90s it was almost sound blaster or nothing. The nastalgia :)

Some of the best carrier landings. This game was smooth and loaded with things to do.
I messed up every building in SFO with this game.

I bought this with my first 386 computer back in 1991. It was better than anything out there. I loved this simulator. I still think about it. What I can't figure out is why it was so far beyond ALL the other flight sims out there, and no one seemed to notice--weird world we live in.

Remember the cruise missile slamming into the TransAmerica building scenes so well. How premonitive this games ideas were to prove 10 yrs later

Excellent game ! Many fighter jets and options to chose from.
At first i had doubts that this flight sim from 1990 (!) could make the difference to other empty looking, sterile and boring flight simulators from around that time. But honestly, this blew me away. It´s better than many of today´s simulators. This has some kind of an open world, california to be precise, which is also pretty detailed.
What i really love about this game is it´s dynamic campaign and that the "carrier-crew" or your commanders react to many situations caused by the player. Fantastic ! It also features some kind of action camera views.
If you give this game a chance, you won't be disappointed.

Does anyone know how to get a bombing targeting sight or manual for this game

This game was one of my favorites as a teen. At one point I even got a Thrustmaster flight control stick that I believe was based on the F-15 stick. It was awesome. Fully customizable, you just created a text file to assign each button a command within the game. I wish there was a good simulator out there now.

switch daytime to dawn and night to enjoy the most athmospheric flight

Oh my god, my youth... I spent almost my entire teenage years on this game. I remember it being more... graphics intensive though.

I played this alongside Falcon 3. I remember buying the add-on packages for both on one night from... what was that store called? Oh, Babbage's. My GPA would've been at least .5 higher if not for these.

I grew up playing this game! Many endless hours playing while waiting for my father to finish work

Simply install dosbox, and then drag the jf2a.exe onto the dosbox desktop icon. It will load and start - however you might get a hung "deactivating mouse" msg or it might start then go back to a c dos prompt. At this point simply type jf2 again at the dos prompt and then it will all work just fine.

I bought the game disc for my home PC when it originally came out. Just as many reviews say, it was a great game for the time. This may seem a streatch, but I can get the same flight views with Jetfighter II as I can get with Microsoft Flight Simulator X with the obvious exception of graphics clarity.
