> Aero Dancing F: Todoroki Tsubasa no Hatsu Hikou (FSD) (a.k.a.:
Tsubasa's Virgin Flight) is basically a bonus disc to the ever awesome
Dancing F. As such, this game is not expected to make the journey
across the Pacific. New missions, aircraft, and options round out
the sales pitch for this semi-sequel. It also features Special Data
downloads for Aero Daning ~fBI, Aero Dancing SD and Aero Dancing F.
> Importing is probably the only way to go (already noted). As with
prior Aero Dancing titles, as long as you know what controlling a multi
million dollar jet is about, then you should fare well. There's a
mixture of Japanese and English in the menus, but most of the selections
are easily made.
For the remaining
review categories see:
F (reviews) for more info.
> Other than some new paint jobs on certain aircraft, I really can't decipher
any graphic enhancements off the bat (compared to Aero Dancing F).
If there are any, then it's safe to say they're minor. That's a good
thing though, as this series has excellent flight visuals.
> Of course, I'm very happy to by able to fly an F/A-18C in US Navy Blue
Angels livery! There's also a wildly painted purple and pink F-14
Tomcat, an orange and yellow design for an F-15 Eagle, an F-18 Aggressor,
> Once again, there is no difference or enhancement here, which is good.
Aero Dancing FSD continues the tradition of simulation gameplay with just
enough arcade to keep most people interested. The only thing I hope
CRI fixes for the forthcoming "Aero Dancing i" is the sluggish wheel brakes,
which should stop quicker.
> Nothing new here either. Top-Gun-esque rock tunes will light your
afterburner. The roar of jet engines and pounding explosions never
seem to get old. I suppose the sound of gunfire ripping into the
enemy during a heated dogfight is satisfying as well.
> Aero Dancing FSD features 10 new Sky Missions (combining target shooting,
hoop flying, and dogfighting). Other modes include Internet, Free
Flight, 3 sets of 8+ Carrier Ops Missions, Replay, and Special Data/Previews.
For instance, if you download the Aero Dancing F Special Data file, then
you'll be able to use all the newly painted Aero Dancing FSD aircraft in
that game! The new missions will keep you busy for a while, but Free
Flight is still the way to go for me -- I will never get tired of that
If you love to fly, then Aero Dancing FSD is a no-brainer. It's a
bonus disc much like Aero Dancing
SD. If you don't have any Aero Dancing games yet, then get Aero
Dancing F / AeroWings 2 first. If you already have Aero Dancing F
/ AeroWings 2, then consider the worthiness of new missions and aircraft
liveries. At least it sells for $39, which is a good value.
