I now take you back to 1995. Me and my brother are absolute Formula One Grand Prix addicts. We develop this respect for Microprose games, as we witness so many awesome titles Microprose has released.

Very nice and detailed one. By the way, what do you think of F29 Retaliator?

It was my very first PC flightsim, and back then (i think year 1994 or 1995) i was very much impressed with it :)Its chief advantage is high responsiveness, unprecedented for a flightsim.

I had the idea F29 Retaliator was a bit more arcadey than other simulators that came from Microprose or Spectrum Holobyte.
It seems to have been a really popular title for the Amiga, a machine i never had contact with, despite me being European and all, my first machine was a Timex 2048 computer (Portuguese made ZX Spectrum clone with several enhancements).
It's really easy to find a boxed copy of F29 Retaliator for the Amiga but not for the IBM PC and Compatibles / DOS.

That is true. We still lack those disk images.
