Summary: I'VE NEVER COMMENTED ON ANYTHING BEFORE ONLINE, LET ALONE A VIDEO GAME AND WOULDN'T EVEN CONSIDER MYSELF A GAMER, JUST A MODERATE USER AT BEST BUT I PERSONALLY THINK THIS GAME IS VISIONARY. WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT QUITE A WHILE BACK THE CLOSEST THING TO IT, IN TERMS OF THE CURRENT OPERATIONAL AIRCRAFT OF THE TIME WAS THE HARRIER JUMP JET.
I should have played this sooner! Great flight combat sim!

Summary: Dropship: United Peace Force is a fantastic flight combat game that you should try and pick up cheap because it has been out for awhile now. The whole game is fast, competitive, has a steep learning curve with realistic battle sequences, amazing replay functions (cinematic), huge explosions, 20 tough missions, several Vertical Take-Off & Landing (VTL) vehicles, 10 ground assault vehicles (you also play on the ground sometimes driving tanks and other army vehicles),...
Summary: I picked this game up on a whim, just thinking it was just another type of combat flight-sim. I was surprised to see how fun and different this game is from other types of flight-sim games. YOu just don't fly and hover a dropship during combat missions, but you also get to try ground missions from dropping off infantry units to providing close-air-support for friendly ground units. This game is like a mix of Ace Combat 4 and Halo.
Summary: I have to confess: despite being a longtime videogamer, my skills are often somewhat lacking, particularly when a high degree of co-ordination is called for. So, I was a little wary of Dropship - with some justification. This game has plenty of good points: impressive visuals, including an excellent replay function; a thoughtful and absorbing atmosphere with plenty of background to increase your immersion in the game world; and more depth than its main rival, Ace Combat...
Summary: Takes the best elements of a flight sim, but without the geekiness, and then combines it with all thats good on a shoot 'em up. This game has atmosphere, realism and playability. In fact my only complaint is that it was a tad to hard. If you like a challange then this game is for you.
Summary: Yes like most others I bought this game wondering if Ace Combat 4 would be better. Well all I can say is that after playing this game Ace Combat 4 felt far too easy and alot less responsive and realistic. Dropship provides some great moments, and yes, does get difficult at times but it is challenging and exciting enough to keep you coming back for more.
How patient are you? Let 'Dropship' be the test...

Summary: Despite (or because?) of not hearing too much hype about this game I was intrigued by the little I had gleaned about it: take control of both ground & VTOL craft, varied mission environments, great graphics making the most of the PS2's chipset. I must say, whilst I have not been disappointed with any of these preconceptions, this game has sorely tried my patience, perhaps one too many times.

Summary: What a breath of fresh air this game is, after countless PS2 driving, football (and so on...) games. What's more, it's not your typical flying game. Yes you fly, but you can also hover, and in some missions you get to use ground vehicles. And if you want a challenge, then Dropship is the game for you... Though not as hard as some PS2 mags would have you believe, it's certainly no piece of cake.
