The After Burner III wiki last edited by Gunstarheroes7 on 03/23/14 01:37PM View full history


Control an F-14 Tomcat through over twelve levels of dogfights and air-to-ground combat.  Use of the Vulcan machine gun and missiles, as well as a turbo boost from the After Burner make for an exhilarating, though sometimes chugging flight.

Critical Reception

When released Electronic Gaming Monthly issued the scores of  4,6,5,7 adding, "...After Burner has long been the forefather to arcade dogfighting, and After Burner III is no exception.  This is a welcome addition to my Sega CD lineup".  A second reviewer though disagreed stating, "...the music is good but even the opening animations are unimpressive, with minor scaling and rotation.  The game play needs some work...".


The game was also known as Strike Fighter, which it was known as in the Japanese arcades before being adapted to become an After Burner sequel.
