Summary: Apache Air Assault is a highly entertaining game if you happen to enjoy flight sims. It’s easily my flight sim game of the year, and a very pleasant surprise. Still, the game fits into a bit of a niche, and it does have a few flaws.
Excerpt: Helicopter simulators are not nearly as common as they should be. I remember the good old days of playing LHX on DOS and Apache Longbow 2, the first one being a very basic helicopter game with crude graphics (but still immensely playable), and the second one being a hardcore simulator, but scalable...
Summary: Apache: Air Assault has very strong mechanics. You can have a lot of control over your helicopter via the realistic mode, or you can turn it down and make Air Assault a more arcade experience using the training mode.
Excerpt: Quick survey! How many people were waiting with bated breath for the next new breakthrough of helicopter combat simulators? Anybody? That's what I was afraid of. Even though no one really asked for it, Gaijin Entertainment has developed one the most surprisingly fun, yet flawed, games this year.
Summary: Apache: Air Assault is a helicopter combat game, where players control a variety of lethal Apache attack helicopters outfitted with cutting-edge military weaponry. The goal in Apache: Air Assault is to prevent terrorist attacks by raining down destruction from above in the world’s most volatile...
Summary: Apache: Air Assault is a decent blend of helicopter simulation and explosive combat. It's unfortunately built with big, empty levels, repetitive mission design, and doesn't have much dramatic imagination in its sim controls.
Pros: Interesting controls, Pretty visuals
Cons: Missions are repetitive, Levels can feel empty at times, despite detail, Frequently unclear mission objectives, No sense of drama
Conclusion: Once you and a friend have your coordination down, you can take your Apache skills online or to the game's highly customizable Mission mode (or you can hit them solo). These modes inject a little more variety into the simple go-here, kill-this formula found throughout the campaign.
Pros: Varying difficulty levels to suit your skills, Plenty of variety in the extra modes, Co-op support throughout.
Summary: Der Beginn von Apache: Air Assault ist nicht ganz ohne, wenn ihr euren Hubschrauber perfekt beherrschen wollt. Vermutlich hat Gaijin das Beste aus dem Komplexitätsmonster der Lüfte gemacht, aber einsteigerfreundlich ist etwas anderes. Es ist deshalb mehr notwendig, sich auf das Spiel einzulassen.
Pros: Gesamtpaket wurde authentisch umgesetzt, Detailierte Landschaften, KrÃ¤ftiger und angenehmer Sound
Cons: Missionen eintÃ¶nig, Multiplayer reizt nicht
