Additional Information

Fly the not-so friendly skies in Aero Elite: Combat Academy, the PS2 debut of the Dreamcast series AeroWings. Offering simulation-oriented gameplay for the true flight enthusiast, Aero Elite puts players through rigorous training in a variety of combat aircraft. With its focus on realism, players utilize onscreen readouts displaying information regarding the craft's altitude, orientation, air speed, and other such pertinent details in order to retain precise control through the many sorties, aerobatic displays, and tests they will engage in. Five main modes of play are offered: Training, Arcade, Aero Meet 2002, Vs. Battle, and Free Flight

Training presents a series of tests that gauge your grasp of the aircraft and its nuances. Arcade mode provides players only three lives with which to advance through as many missions as possible; lose all three lives and you'll have to restart from the beginning. Aero Meet 2002 challenges the player to complete specific tasks in Air-to-Air, Surface, Maneuver, and Recon disciplines. Air-to-Air and Surface are combat-based events that pit the player against squadrons of airborne units and ground targets, respectively; Maneuver, on the other hand, offers offbeat challenges, such as flying through rings or shooting down balloons. Recon has the player attempting to take surveillance pictures while avoiding enemy gunfire. The Vs. Battle mode facilitates competitive battles between two human players.

Free Flight lets players take to the sky with the options and customized settings of their choosing: from the weather and time conditions, to the arena of engagement, to whether you'll fly solo or engage in air and ground-based combat. No fewer than 60 different aircraft can be unlocked through extended play, all of which are authentically modeled after their real-word counterparts.
