The single player mode revolves around a group of multi-national fighter pilots in the fictional Energy Airforce in the near future. After terrorist outbreaks across the world threaten global security, these few brave pilots lead a spearhead assault against the terrorists. The characters are able to fly most modern day jets found in the Western arsenal, as well as several Russian and European fighter planes. Each character has their own attributes such as a specialty in European, modern, naval, and attack aircraft. The game has a somewhat lengthy campaign mode that lets players immerse themselves in the various theaters of war: dogfights, bombing strikes, secret missions, air support, and naval strike. Unlike other console flight-simulator games, Over G Fighters uses the real names of planes, as well as weapons. Their locations are also real and not a fictional country. Lastly, it allows real combat situations, running out of fuel, and weapons (in expert, hell, or arena mode).
