    Choplifter HD is a really cool game for all classic lovers, but especially for older players who remember titles like that from Atari or Amiga. You can find all kinds of missions - seek & destroy, rescue etc. Even some for zombie lovers. Game is utilizing UE3, so it should run fine on every low end PC. Controls are a little funky and weird, but you can get used to it.

It's not one of those moronic AAA titles, where you only press fire and watch cut scenes. Expand

    This is an awesome and addictive retro-style game. I had played the Activision game for the 2600 in the early eighties. This is a reimagined dream. The level design is great. Scoop Sanderson is good comic relief from all the death and destruction.

    This game gets difficult quickly, but it is fun when you get the hang of it. It also has some replay value in trying to get all five stars per mission or finding the secrets.

    A game pad with an analog stick is required because aiming is almost impossible with keyboard controls.

    Excellent game! It's all that a nice remake should be, bringing all that's good on the original and improving. Graphics are awesome, but what really shines is the game play, it is simply perfect!

    Choplifter HD is a remake of the successful classic helicopter game from 1982 – so our expectations were pitched quite high. Unfortunately this game is far from meeting them. The repetitiveness in gameplay and its non-compassionate presentation make it, in our opinion, nothing to recommend.

    The tactical implications of saving people while keeping an eye on the fuel gauge are interesting. But you'll lose interest sooner rather than later, thanks to the frustrating design.

    Return of the classic in 3D high definition misses the spirit of its predecessor and after a few missions the game turns routine... [Feb 2012]
