Menus and gameplay are in Multi-3 (English, French & German).

The player takes the role of an air pilot who is part of an elite first strike air unit. This unit is tasked with putting a stop to an international crime organization that is building up a military sized force.

In this air combat game, players can choose to play in a training mode, play a mission mode, or have a VS. battle.

Training mode features 3 different missions with players attempting to get as high of a score as possible. VS. battle has 2 players linking up to play a head-to-head battle against each other.

The main mode is the mission mode. Players can choose from 6 different fighter jets which are the F-4E Phantom II, F-14D Tomcat, F/A-18 Hornet, F-15E Eagle, F-16C Falcon and the F-22 Raptor (AKA Superstar), each with their own ratings in max speed, endurance, maneuverability, and stability. The game features 12 missions to play through, with objectives such as defending a weapons factory or shooting down a stolen F-16. Each mission completed successfully will reward the player a certain number of credits depending on the difficulty of that mission.

Gameplay involves flying a fighter with a cockpit view. The HUD includes a radar showing the enemy fighters locations plus the number of enemies left. Their is also a rear view mirror which lets the player see if their are any enemy fighters on their tail. Players can fire their air-to-air, air-to-surface, and air-to-ground missiles at enemy units.

Options let the player adjust the difficulty level and change the controls between easy or hard.

  Manufacturer's description:

THIS ISN'T A RED FLAG EXERCISE
IT'S THE REAL THING!

An international crime organization has enlisted the help of several allied countries to build an incredibly powerful military force. Hostile situations are deemed inevitable. As a team member of an elite, first strike air unit, you are called to duty.
The situation is code red . . . and classified.

* HIT THE AFTERBURNERS! Pilot your choice of real fighters: the Phantom II, Tomcat, Hornet, Eagle, Falcon and the Superstar.
* EXPERIENCE THE THRILL! 'Bug out' of intense dogfights with tight controls, realistic physics and unbelievably nauseating 360 movement.
* THE (ROE) RULES OF ENGAGEMENT! Feel the heat as you fly into dangerous missions in multiple modes, executing air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea attack operations.
* NAVIGATE IN 2 DISTINCT VIEWS. The Cockpit view puts you in the hot seat, while the HUD view provides an up-close challenge.
