The game involves modern air combat in several campaigns and missions. The campaigns are set around fictional wars in areas such as Angola, Jordan, Russia, Colombia, and Iran, with the player fighting for the USA. The player has access to some of the real world weapons system of the F-22, including the AIM-9 Sidewinder and AIM-120 AMRAAM Air-to-air missiles, as well as a 20mm cannon and the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) for ground attack. Enemies encountered in the game are usually jet fighters from former Eastern Bloc countries (mainly Russian Migs), as well as helicopters and SAM sites.
The game contains a highly detailed intro movie describing the F-22 and its innovations, which seems almost like an advertisement for Lockheed Martin and the aircraft. The game was originally released for Windows 95 and Windows 98 and later patched for Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows XP.
