Summary: I've been looking for a decent console helicopter game for years. The last one I played and really enjoyed was PS2 Thunderhawk Operation Phoenix and that's still the case. Apache Air Assault is not bad but it isn't good either. Graphics are OK-ish, controls not disasterously bad or difficult to use, presentation adequate, music inoffensive, sound effects decent (although there is a glitch with the rotor blade noise disappearing if you play in first-person).
Summary: Apache Air assault is an entertaining arcade game, if you are concerned with comments about the difficulties of flying a helicopter, don't be. Flying a real life helicopter is a balancing act that can only be learned with experience and practice, you'll be flying the helicopter in this game around the battlefield and quickly coming to a hover (there's even an auto-hover to make it ridiculously simple which is activated with a single button click) in no time at all.
Conclusion: I love flying games but the choice on offer on the Xbox360 is very limited hence I was excited about getting this game. To start with the good points first you get to fly Apaches the worlds best attack chopper and in the game they give you 3 different versions the AH-64D Longbow AH-64X and the AH-1. It has all the payloads of the real life versions Hyrda rockets Hellfire missiles Anti-Air missiles and the powerful 30mm chain-gun.
Excerpt: nice graphics within the actual cockpit, but the terrain doesn't look too great. The lack of online co op with a friend to be a co pilot is a let down ( you can only do this in local co op ) I would give this game a 3 out of 5
