First off, what is with the button assignments on this game?! Why in the world would you assign the missles and guns to the hard to reach middle series of buttons!? And to further frustrate the gamer, there's no way to reassign them. Very bad game design there if you ask me. This in and of itself is almost enough to make me want to sell the game. However, I did enjoy the action in the first scenario. Though I can't seem to complete the mission. I've destroyed the ground forces and most of the fleet in the harbor. What I can't seem to be able to do is to shake the enemy fighters. I've tried quick turns, I've tried cutting my jets to see if they'd fly on by where I could get a lock on, I've tried to doing a loop da loop manuever, all to no avail, they remain locked onto my backside, and eventually they gun me down. So what's the trick to the air to air combat in this game?
