  • Summary: Enemy Engaged 2 is the sequel to the best selling chopper classic, "Enemy Engaged: RAH-66 Comanche Versus Ka-52 Hokum". Enemy Engaged 2 is set to take the series even further with new dynamic missions and a complete overhaul of graphics and audio that bring the game up to date with the latest and best flight simulations available. Modern helicopter combat simulation with realistic flight physics. Three exciting theaters of war with two opposing campaigns each. Dynamic real-time battlefields. No linear mission plot or predefined unit behavior. Over 30,000 square kilometers of flying area over Lebanon, Taiwan and Korea. Diverse combat environments executed in lush 3D detail under a wide range of weather conditions. Over 1,200 very detailed and blue-print precise vehicles, chosen from among proven classics in actual use in armed forces around the globe. Use immersive voice control to command your gunner and wingman. [Strategy First Inc.] Collapse

  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. 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]
  5. Falls far below expectations.
  6. Just prepare to be very forgiving of the show stopping bugs and flaws that the game contains.
  7. 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.

    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 Expand

    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.

    My graphics look awesome (I have evga 8800 DX10 card) when the game doesn't crash on me. Joystick setup is lacking horribly (the manual just quickly says to use your joystick drivers to set up your joystick) and the TrackIR suffers from keeping up with your head movement nomatter how you adjust the TrackIR software to compensate for it. I am deeply concerned that the developers are going to run with the money they make onthe release becasue this could definitely be the pinnacle of great sims inline with IL2 but for helicopters. Man I preorder this game over a month in advance hoping it would be the game to really show off my new DX 10 card and 24 inch widescreen monitor and half the time I run the game it crashes. Expand

    Ugly Graphics, many times worse like in the intro-trailer and bad configuring of controls. My System meets all requirements and it is lacking.

    Constant crashing, Dodgy trackir support and an interface that won't let you configure controls properly make this game not worth purchasing. From what was said prior to release by the devs this looks to be a simple case of grabbing the money. I wouldn't be suprised if they run with it. IF it is patch it COULD be bloody awesome - but right now it epitomizes what is wrong with the combat sim industry. Expand

    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!
    Problems:
    Multiple game crashes
    Atrocious graphics
    VERY basic set-up options leaving you frustrated like hell
    Boring missions, no challenge at all!
