If the controls only worked right...

  • Summary: I was very excited to purchase this game initially but was extremely disappointed when I realized the controls were simply not good. I've flown many flight sims including helicopters and I'm very experienced in this arena. The graphics and sounds are great but if you can't comfortably fly the helicopter does they really count? I even tried it with a joystick and still no luck. Great game if it were much easier to fly.

  • Summary: Still waiting for a joystick as the PS3 controller is too difficult to use with a flight sim game. So I am unable to rate the game at the moment.

  • Summary: This title was developed by the team responsible also for the amazing Birds of Steel. Now while you can see that Birds of Steel DNA in this game it is a slightly different beast. The game is very barebones - you can only pilot a few different helicopters and the story is barley noticeable. However the flight mechanics are ace and sim enough for consoles.

Good in some ways, lacking in others..

  • Summary: This is such a "nearly" game. It's nearly brilliant, yet it falls short when it counts. Couldve been helped with more development, larger, more expansive levels and not least, a larger number of levels. The apache flies great but some of the AI is rather ridiculous e.g. the air-to-air engaments and what i'd label "dead zones", where you can hover and yet defeat AI without doing anything at all (which kinda takes away from the point of playing).

  • Summary: Had this for a while now so it's even more dated as a game. PRO: Cheap, quick to get into, has a local co-op play mode CON: Dated graphics and missions, maybe a bit too arcade like Overall - Good cheap game for killing a bit of time - missions can be played in a few minutes.

Gets Boring Quickly

  • Summary: Now, being the military enthusiast that I am, and having a huge interest in military aviation and Apache attack helicopters, I thought'd I'd love this game, no matter how bad it be, but I'll be honest -- I was a little disappointed here. The first few missions where you are introduced to the different weapon systems of the Apache are quite fun, realistic and interesting (for me, at least), but as the game goes on, the missions just get repetitive and boring quickly.

PS3 Apache

  • Summary: I have always been strangely obsessed with the Apache helicopter, probably stemming from watching programs like Blue Thunder as a child. Many years ago I remember my favourite game on the Commodore 64 was an Apache gunship simulator. So I was thrilled to learn that there was a PS3 game coming out dedicated to my favourite helicopter and I rushed out and bought a copy as soon as it was available.

Meh!

  • Conclusion: I played the demo ages ago and remember thinking that it wasn't too bad - sure the controls were a bit hard to get used to but I figured it would worth a punt when it finally came out. Just got round to buying the full game and I don't know what I was thinking! The controls kill this game dead - forget stealth, forget using hills for cover - you'll just end up smashing into them. Nope - this game is reduced to a brainless arcade fly and shoot affair.
