  • Summary: Climb into the pocket of the ultimate air-attack fighting machine! The Apache Longbow is designed to take the punishment of a tank, but with capabilities of inflicting massive damage. As a pilot of an Apache Longbow, your mission is to provide cover for ground troops and to destroy enemy strong-holds. Your Apache is equipped with awe-inspiring weapons from 30mm chain guns to Hellfire missles to Sidewinder missles, everything you need to get the job done. Features multiple cockpit views, 3 modes of gameplay, and an engaging, heart-pounding storyline for hours of flight action. You will need nerves of steel, a steady hand and quick reflexes to complete your missions! Expand

  1. If you're looking for a solid and fun title filled with neat explosions and little other details, or if couldn't get enough of the original, head out to your retailer and pick this little gem up. It'll keep you going for hours on end.
  2. It's a real shame Apache Longbow Assault doesn't offer a deeper campaign and more game modes. It otherwise has some good things to offer: sharp graphics, solid audio, and lots of fast airborne action. This is a game that doesn't do too much, but what it does, it does well.
  3. Very good implementation of a helicopter flight sim, though skimpy on the extra details like mission briefings, alternate gameplay modes, etc.
  4. The real issue with ALA is its brevity...Even so, Apache Longbow Assault delivers an entertaining ride while it lasts, and I suppose that's all one can reasonably expect from a budget title. [Apr 2004, p.81]

    If you take Apache L.A. and Comanche 4 , the most reallystic flying is with Apache, but the Commanche has more complex scenarios. I enjoyed both of them. If you look at the Commanche 4 credits, you can see the help of the U.S. AIR FORCE . Apache doesn't has it... Expand

    This "sim" is just too simple, and I haven't even tried flying in Arcade Mode yet...
