Heatseeker

Designed to be an incredible lock-on/shake-off experience, Heatseeker reinvents missile combat to give gamers a massive rush of destruction. Set to feature an incredible collection of current and near-future military fighter jets, Heatseeker's arsenal includes the stealthy F-22Raptor, the classic F-15 Eagle, the cutting-edge F35 Lightening II, and the aerodynamically advanced Russian SU-47 Berkut.

Says Andrew Wensley, Senior Producer for Heatseeker at Codemasters:
"If you like fast and furious action, and blowing everything in sight to bits, then Heatseeker is a dream come true. Expect the greatest military aircraft armed to the teeth with the latest hardware, big explosions, great smoke trails, and gung-ho heroics."

Heatseeker is a joint development project between Codemasters and IR Gurus, the Australian studio behind the acclaimed historic air combat title, Heroes of the Pacific.

Says Ben Palmer, Executive Producer, IR Gurus
"The Heroes air combat engine is being advanced and getting armed to the teeth with the latest military hardware. It's set in a realistic now-time world, that's cohesive and believable, but the speed of play will feel like lightening"

Heatseeker will strap you into the pilot's seat and deliver an exhilarating white-knuckle ride that'll have you clutching the joypad as you engage in face-melting 6G turns and fight against a seemingly-impossible amount of airborne enemies.
And when you launch a strike, you'll follow your missiles as they ruthlessly home in on their targets via the Impact Cam. Delivering awesome cinematic 3rd-person camera cutaway scenes, the Impact Cam will reveal the results of your attack in all their devastating glory from all kinds of dynamic angles, complete with jaw-dropping explosions and smoke trails.

With missions across the US, down to the Caribbean, across Antarctica and into the Far East, it'll be high-velocity combat all the way that'll see you constantly switching from predator to prey as an enemy missiles lock on.

Throughout the game's campaigns, you'll be proving your right to fly with the best. Are you good enough to advance ahead of your fellow pilots and stay top? Can you throw your aircraft to the floor, twist and turn, and punch out counter measures as you pull as many Gs as necessary to out-manoeuvre the missile? Basically, are you good enough to stay alive?

This game will be awesome. Hope it has multiplayer support but I doubt it will. Third parties just got the WiFi developing pack for the Wii recently.

Heatseeker is a beautiful looking game that anyone with adrenaline will enjoy. If you liked top-gun, then you'll like Heatseeker.

Is this like one of those air mission games where you have missiles and you blow up the other planes while locking on to them? Because I love those kind of games.

I have this game, the controls are terrible when you first start but as you progress you get used to them. Extremely challenging levels as you have to go half an hour without a checkpoint sometimes. I recommend this if you really enjoy a challenge.
