Afterburner is a mix of flight sim and those classic arcade flight shooters. You are flying in a 3d space, you have control over direction and speed. But, you have unlimited ammo for guns and rockets. You don’t have unlimited health though.

Controls are OK, as they took a lot of getting used to. This is down to there being two tutorials. One is just a video to watch and the other is basic controls. Dropping speed allows for quick turns, but this can cause engine failure if you aren’t careful.

3 hours into the game I found out by holding down the missile button after firing, you get a cinematic shot of it hitting the target. This wasn’t explained at all.
