EF2000 Digital Image Design Ltd. / Ocean Software Ltd. 1995

EF2000 is a combat flight simulation video game released in December 1995 for DOS on the IBM PC compatible personal computer. It is the sequel to Digital Image Design's earlier software title, TFX. It was released after the introduction of Microsoft Windows 95 but only runs in DOS mode. It features the Eurofighter. The simulation featured detailed terrain of the Baltic region, featuring countries such as Norway, Sweden, Finland and some parts of Russia. The simulation supported early Virtual Reality goggles. Set in a fictional campaign against Russia, you are called into action when a Russian force attempts to take control of Norway and Sweden as a foothold to an invasion of northern Europe. You'll play through a variety of randomly-generated missions ranging from patrols to ground strikes. Included as well is a fairly extensive multi-player support, including network and modem play. Later in 1996, EF 2000: Special Edition was released which included the original game plus the TACTOM expansion. A Windows version of that compilation was called Super EF2000. In 1997, EF2000 v2.0 a US-only compilation of an updated DOS version of EF2000 and the Windows 95 version Super EF2000 was released. The DOS versions have optional 3D hardware accelerated support for 3Dfx Vodoo or Rendition Verite cards. The DOS versions also have a slightly different network functionality and cannot connect to the European version of EF2000/TACTCOM releases. The Windows 95 version is similar to the basic DOS EF2000 game and has DirectX support with software rendering. This US Windows 95 version is network play compatible with the European version of Super EF2000.
