Released in 1984, F-15 Strike Eagle is a seminal flight simulation game that brings the thrill and complexity of piloting the iconic F-15 fighter jet to DOS platforms. Developed with a focus on realism and authenticity, the game offers players an opportunity to embark on seven meticulously crafted missions, each based on real-life operations conducted by the F-15 during the tumultuous periods of the 1970s and early 1980s in the Middle East and Asia. F-15 Strike Eagle sets itself apart with its blend of strategic gameplay and action-packed sequences, challenging players to engage both air and ground targets. The arsenal at the player's disposal is comprehensive, including machine guns for dogfighting scenarios, guided missiles for precision strikes against enemy aircraft, and bombs for devastating ground-based targets. This variety of weaponry requires players to adapt their strategies based on the mission objectives and the types of threats they encounter.

The game offers an arcade mode for those looking for a more straightforward and action-focused experience, along with three additional difficulty levels designed to test the skills of even the most seasoned flight simulation enthusiasts. The presence of three enemy aircraft types and three kinds of enemy Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) adds further depth to the gameplay, demanding keen awareness and quick reflexes from players as they navigate through hostile skies.

Graphically, F-15 Strike Eagle was advanced for its time, providing a convincing representation of the jet's cockpit and the varied terrains over which the missions are flown. Although simplistic by modern standards, the visuals effectively convey the speed and dynamism of aerial combat, enhancing the immersion and realism of the simulation. The game's design emphasizes not just the mechanics of flight but also the strategic elements of military engagement. Players must carefully manage their weapons and fuel, choose their battles wisely, and make split-second decisions that could mean the difference between success and failure on a mission.
