Jerry White and Gina Willis could not have engineered a better way to pick up and learn their latest entry in the Skies Above series. Starting with the Dogfighting Cycle, the Situation Manual eases you into various situations that introduce key, core concepts that will build and interact with one another as the scenarios progress. Dogfighting is just one of the core mechanisms and it provides a riveting, narratively rich experience that blends abstraction with just enough choice to keep things wildly interesting.
