Klamme handen...snelheid...hoogte....missiles locked, de adrenaline giert door je lijf. Met de demo van Lock On kunnen we weer eens virtueel oorlog voeren, in de lucht weliswaar. Ubisoft geeft ons hierbij de gelegenheid een klein beetje te genieten van hun nieuwe game. We kunnen in een tweetal vliegtuigen vliegen, de A-10A Warthog en de MiG-29A Fulcrum, helaas is er maar een modus beschikbaar en dat is de Quick Start-modus. De lijst van features van de volledige versie van het spel staat hieronder:* Eight flyable aircraft, two US and five Russian, and one German (A- 10A Warthog, F-15C Eagle, Su-27 Flanker B, MiG-29 Fulcrum A, MiG-29 Fulcrum C, Su-25 Frogfoot, Su-33 Flanker D, and German MiG-29).

* The Black Sea region, which includes the Crimean peninsula and the eastern Caucuses, is the setting for the hypothetical, present day air conflict.

* A Dynamic campaign system (DBG) with great replay value is the focus of the Lock On mission system.

* Stunning 3D objects and terrain create the best looking world ever created for a flight simulation. Everything from aircraft, to tanks, to buildings, are recreated in unmatched detail.

* An incredibly detailed area with dynamic lighting effects featuring, more than 180,000 buildings, 50,000,000 trees, 21 cities, 1,700 towns and villages, 500 bridges, 18 airfields and 8 naval bases.

* Realistic sound effects and audio environment that includes communication with wingmen, AWACS, tankers, and tower/approach controllers.

* A range of player missions including training, quick start, fast battle planner, and at least 36 individual missions, each with its own background and story.

De 120 mb zware demo is hier te downloaden.
