The Jetfighter series returns once again, albeit this time it is released by
Mission Studios, a spin-off from Velocity, the original developers of this
franchise. While once again the battle is against a drug lord, it takes place
over South America instead of the U.S. West Coast as in its predecessors. The
campaign is structure similar to Strike Commander/Wing Commander, where the
scripted missions are linked by a intricate story. The player is a pilot
aboard an aircraft carrier, and can move around various places about the ship
between each mission.
Jetfighter III features terrain generated from satellite data, with
geographically correct cities, roads, and airports. Flyable jets include the
F/A-18 and the naval F-22N.
A later patch allowed for 3DFX support.
