Desert Strike caused quite a storm when released with its tight controls and excellent mission based gameplay from taking out power stations to rescuing POW, you really felt the power of the chopper to make a difference. Completing a level rewarded a mini sequence of politically charged cinematics. The final level required various briefings to be completed in the one mission and having gone through so much hard work the fear of being shot down was overwhelming.
