  1. An excellent though rather bland-looking 'copter combat sim. [Sept 2007, p.56]
  2. Not a bad game, but cannot beat the original EECH combined with latest free community mods. I hoped for more changes to flight and systems modelling and AI, but instead we got some trees and invisible objects to crash into. [Aug 2007]
  3. A once-great helicopter combat sim is still pretty good, if you don't mind the déjà vu.
  4. Enemy Engaged 2 has potenttial, but remains a patch or two away from completion. [Nov 2007, p.77]
  5. Enemy Engaged 2 has some serious problems but they do not make the game unplayable, just detract from your enjoyment. The graphics and visual effects of a bleak terrain do not help the game out but the great open style of mission setup add greatly to the look and feel of a real battlefield.
  6. The critical flaw made by the developers however was in not paying close enough attention to their community, and realizing that in order to create a worthwhile sequel, they’d have to do more than just update the graphics and add a couple of features, which ultimately means that there’s little point to picking up Enemy Engaged 2 unless you’re new to the series.
  7. This is not the most convincing military sim ever, but it's a good approximation of grinding boredom followed by sudden death - and a virtually unplayable game. [Aug 2007, p.86]
  8. Falls far below expectations.
  9. Just prepare to be very forgiving of the show stopping bugs and flaws that the game contains.
  10. That [50] down there is starting to look a bit mean isn't it? It would be if EE2 wasn't buggier than a shrew's breakfast and outgunned by a better, cheaper, alternative.
  11. For anyone who hasn't already got a helicopter license though, playing Enemy Engaged 2 is about as much fun as eating a pair of sheep's testicles. Yum. [Sept 2007, p.84]
  12. Trust me, this game fails in about every category imaginable. Take your money and throw it out the window. Watching the dollar bills flutter away is closer to flying a helicopter than playing this game.

    As a real life helo pilot, I'm always on the lookout for a good heli sim. The pre-release advertising for this game made me determined to buy it. BIG mistake.
    Poor quality from the makers. In fact, I'll think twice before buying anything from them ever again just because of this stupid game. If I knew who's face to punch in for this game, believe me, I'd be out there looking for them.
    DO NOT support money-hungry companies that gives us crap games like this! Don't buy anything from them if you want to prevent these kinds of games from hitting the shelves!
    Multiple game crashes
    Atrocious graphics
    VERY basic set-up options leaving you frustrated like hell
    Boring missions, no challenge at all!

    This was unplayable for me with my old gen video card but since upgrading to a ATI 1650 pro, I'll give this title a strong 7 for the best helo sim we've had since the original Enemy Engaged. Graphically the game is really lacking. BUT there are trees and foliage in this sim! They are great duck and cover clusters and the controls with my CH throttle and Joystick have been excellent. Granted, as others have said here about controls, you DO have to set them up EVERYTIME you boot up the game. Overall, I Full Review »

    My previous review under Frank K. needs some updating. I recieved an email back from the developers from a person named Ben Harring about 2 days after my report of trouble was made to them. He instructed me to delete two files....."Please delete game.cfg and eech.ini files from the game directory, you have
    changed a setting which is causing the game to crash, by deleting these
    files you will lose all settings that you have made. Please keep checking to
    see which setting you're changing to cause the game to crash." After doing so this stoppped 90% of the crashes and the TrackIR is operating much better now. This has made me happy but the other 10% of the time ......well you can imagine.
