    Hey G4. Why don't you review this game sometime this year. You are a video game sight correct?

    As a huge fan of heli games (back from the Commanche on PC days, and Strike games from PS1), a little dissapointed from what I see so far.

    Will wait for the full review but....for now things that have me skeptical:


    - lack of variety (only apaches? what about some russian Hinds and Mi-28's, German Tigers or a mock Airwolf?)
    - graphics/sound leave a lot to be desired
    - not much info on gameplay - assume the standard blow stuff up and escort missions - but what else? Any story lines or player character development?
    - not much info on how well controls work


    Basic and advanced controls will allow for some longevity and hopefully more realism to gameplay

    jury's out on this one.....maybe a bargain bin buy?

    Interesting. There is a heli game currently available in the market. And it also has "realistic flight controls". So realistic in fact here's a short description about it from from Wikipedia :

    "Eagle Dynamics has stated that, because of their current focus on both military and consumer simulation products, they will not simulate vehicles at a lower level of detail or using incomplete data"

    The game/simulation is "DCS : Black Shark." It was released March 2009.

    I'm thrilled for Gaijin releasing an Apache game that I've waited for years but I'm a bit....miffed that G4 would actually not review or even mention DCS : Black Shark at all. I guess it being a PC only game that require you get a heli license to play is not cool enough for G4.

    That's not fair. It bring out the evil inside me because I smirked at fight4gipper1's and R3LF_12's comments knowing there IS a game already available that fit their descriptions.

    FYI : Eagle Dynamics is going to release a new simulation soon. DCS : A10 Warthog. Yes, it's PC only
    and I wonder if it's cool enough for G4.

    helicopters are great because you can hover and spray out bullets and rockets
