Summary: Apache was far better than I had expected. The game is challenging, graphically pleasing to the eye, and satisfies both the realistic combat helicopter game and shoot-em-up arcade game needs, thanks to the game's choice of gameplay styles. I'm looking forward to some DLC and/or Apache II.
Summary: All I can say is WOW!! I have played Janes Longbow 2 for hours on end on the PC and really enjoyed the realism of the systems and flight dynamics that were simulated. I have longed for something like this for the XBOX 360 that would keep me as engaged and was as challenging and fun. When I saw Apache Air Assault I thought it was a simple arcade style game and the negative reviews I saw did not help either. I did notice a few reviewers rate it highly as well as CNET.
Summary: The Goods: 1.Once unlocked, the realistic controls provide excellent approximation (I chose that word carefully) of helo controls. 2. The local co-op is fun, even if the gun cross is hard to see at times. on line multiplayer with a friend is fun. 3. Single player is fun and challenging. The Bads: 1. Learning curve is steep, especially if you have never flown a helicopter and don't understand the physics.
Summary: This game is awesome. A really great game such as this one isn't necessarily easy to master. Every mission that you attempt, as you progress through the many missions to defeat the enemy, helps to sharpen your skills and make you ready for the next mission. When you get frustrated the best thing to do is to work on your shooting accuracy. The game play is awesome.
"Awesome for PC simmers looking for a good console sim."

Pros: Controllability of helicopter is very good considering that this is not a PC platform. The weapons systems aren't complicated but not simple. It allows for user customization on how to engage a target.
Cons: The mission objectives are not extremely clear. I would not call gameplay mundane but it does become repetitive over time.
