Summary: What most; if not all people don't know is that this is a real helicopter created by Boeing Sikorsky, but sadly was cancelled, & instead the army decided to upgrade thier already in service attack helicopters; the AH-64 Apache, the Bell OH-58 Kiowa Warrior and the Boeing AH-6 affectionatly known as...
Nice change of pace from fixed wing fighter plane games...

Summary: So far, I've only beaten the first level so this is just first impressions, I guess, but still a lot more fun than I expected. I haven't read the professional reviews and I don't want to, quite frankly. I played the training ground first, which you should if you're smart, so I got the controls down.
Summary: TS:OP is a good game,although sometimes it's hard to see or to even complete the level but i'm up to a challenge. I like to use the maverick and firestorm mostly but rockets aren't too good. Also they could've put a co-op mode but oh well.
Summary: This is another one of those underrated bargain bin classics, it's a shame that TSOP has been bashed by "professional" game critics who seem to think they know what makes a video games fun. Make no mistake; TSOP isn't fun at the arcades, but it is a realistic flight sim.
Summary: At first I found the controls difficult but like every other game it just took some time. Relative to Fire Blade (Midway) TS:OP's controls are golden. My standards on graphics and sound aren't too high so I found TS:OP's acceptable.
Summary: It took a couple of times to get the hang of it, then when I knew about the weapons I could choose at any time after each stage WOW it's just great....but I then realized that I needed the 8MB chip to save the game that's just a hassle but overall 5 stars.
