After Burner: Black Falcon


I know Afterburner has been released on home consoles numerous times, but somehow I am unable to recall seeing it anywhere but arcades, where it made its name with its flashy, fast-paced graphics and its slick, expensive arcade case. Just looking at...

Arcade-style action, just like the original ; Decent graphics ; Real-world jets (albeit not very realistically simulated)

A simple on-rails shooter. What is this, 1987

A true sequel to the old After Burner games worthy of the series mantle, but at the same time showing just how dated the series’ gameplay looks today. Unless you still play the old arcade games, this game will feel outdated now.

Flying the unfriendly skies isn't such a good idea.

Afterburner: Black Falcon Sony PSP Review


Great presentation; wicked gameplay; wonderful revitalization of the classic

Multiplayer seems like an afterthought

After Burner: Black Falcon is yet another example by Sega to return a classic franchise to glory. Granted, their track record has been pretty good thus far, with Virtua Tennis, Outrun, and a few other games (aside from the paltry Sonic titles) staying...

Sticking close to its arcade game roots, After Burner: Black Falcon is a short but addictive flight combat game for the PSP. Considerably challenging yet very straightforward, the game doesn't offer enough variety but it still manages to remain...

After Burner: Black Falcon


Much like the rest of the series really. Post a Comment

While the game is pretty entertaining at first, the appeal wears off very quickly and doesn't return. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere if you want aerial combat.

After Burner: Black Falcon Review


Planet Moon's take on Sega's arcade franchise soars high.

Throughout the game, players acquire a number of jets, along with customizable skins to slap onto them. It adds to Black Falcon's replay value, letting gamers go back through levels with a fully decked out plane in an attempt to achieve higher scores....

After Burner : Black Falcon for PSP


A gloriously intense arcade shooter

The landscapes are varied like all typical flight-simulators. The soundtrack offers afew different types of styles that seem to loop infinitely. Afterburner is fun andaddictive, but best played in short bursts. It is one of those games that can truly...

After Burner: Black Falcon


It's now become something of a cliched way to start a review, and could be blasted for edging towards "New Games Journalism", but I can't help but tell you about the wonderful experience of playing this new After Burner for the first time. A little...

After all these years I still love After Burner. While the large metallic joystick and arcade unit might be dust in the ether (actually there's the original arcade unit I remember for sale on eBay now) I'm at a point where I can't walk past my PSP...
