    It's not an unplayable wreck--it just isn't worth the time and effort it takes to slog through. [Jan 2011, p.84]

    It's hard to recommend this game to anyone but the most hardcore of flight simulator fans. As in, you have to be unreasonably hardcore. As in, you have Apache-themed bedspread and keep a picture of a Boeing AH-64A in your wallet that you stare at longingly throughout the day.

The various missions areIf you are into helicopter flight simulator this one if for you. Plenty of realistic flight controls and mechanics. The various missions are standard issue but this is a licensed product of a deadly weapon. To be an Apache pilot you need to pass a 2yrs flying course. I've enjoyed the coop and I'm guessing the online is not always open since it's a 2010 game. If you want to engage in more action buy games like Battlefield 3 + Full Review »

    Russian developer Gaijin Entertainment made three of the best flight simulation games for the PlayStation 3 and the combat is good. Apache:Russian developer Gaijin Entertainment made three of the best flight simulation games for the PlayStation 3 and the combat is good. Apache: Air Assault not only has Apache's AH-1 and AH-64D Longbow in it but UAV's MQ-8B Fire Scout and MQ-9 Reaper also large helicopters IIMi-26 Halo, Mi-35 Hind, UH-60 Black Hawk and the A-10 Thunderbolt. One thing that is a negative about Air Assault is sometimes after a restart of a mission the rotor sound in cockpit view will be lost and the only way to get it back is to reset the game.

Once youFor those who like flying and helicopters, you'll love this game. Make no mistake, this game is meant for those whose have patience. Once you realize that you have to fly the Apache like a real helicopter, then you'll be having a blast. Too bad the campaign is relatively short, but there are extra missions you can tackle, which are very challenging. There's also a free flight mode where you can fly 3 Apache variants plus a UAV copter and a Hind. As for online, it's dead, not a soul is there. Back when it was released, $60 was kinda too much, but now it's cheap, so if you love Apaches or flying in general, grab this game. Full Review »
