  • Summary: A fast-paced action game that moves at 200mph with you at the controls of a Comanche helicopter. Fly the U.S. Army?s next generation attack helicopter in over 30 extreme missions. Fire a 20mm cannon, 70mm rockets, Stinger heat-seeking and Hellfire laser-guided missiles. [NovaLogic]

  1. It reintroduces the sometimes forgotten concept of a 10-15 minute learning curve, and has done away with a 200-page flight manual on the basics of aviation.

    If you want gorgeous, consistent, believable action that controls well, Comanche will appease your militaristic alter ego.
  3. A perfect balance between authenticity and accessibility. It probably won’t appeal to the hard-core sim fans, whilst those that like their action immediately up front will probably also be deterred.
  4. A fun-filled, fast-action title with missions of all difficulty levels, which is achieved at the cost of in depth graphics and technical stability.
  5. The missions are interesting and, let’s face it, every once in a while, it’s a cathartic blast to wade into the middle of swarms of bad guys and teach them the folly of opposing truth, justice, and the American way. [Mar 2002, p.91]
  6. The game is, for lack of a better term, tired. [Mar 2002, p.89]
  7. 40
    This one flies in the face of taste, tweaks the nose of subtlety and goes down in a blaze of glory, all guns blazing.

    A truly epic helicopter flying experience. The graphics? Just play it yourself to see how amazing it is. The voice acting are realistic, and the gameplay is incredible. Shooting some baddies on both ground and air sure feels nice. This is Griffon 2-6. Review completed. Returning to base. Expand

    This game has gotten some undeserved bad reviews. It is one of the last playable Helicopter battle sims, with the exception of Apache AH64 Assault. I have both of these titles and they are both good and fun to play. Comanche 4 doesn't have a long learning curve like the old Janes flight games and everyone I have gifted it to have only praise for it. It isn't a New Title so the graphics aren't perfect, but if you want a fun game that gets challenging as it progress's then Buy It you won't be disappointed. It also has a fun multiplayer! Expand
