    If 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 + Expand

    This flying simulation is not particularly fun and the combat is not exactly engaging. There is however a real challenge in learning how to fly the Apache and if you are a flying enthusiast you will enjoy this element, however casual gamers will be turned off by the lack of obvious excitement. The missions are pretty standard fare and overall I felt the game was missing a sense of creative license. I wish they had taken a different approach when building the game because the flying physics are superbly sophisticated. I also noticed that there was no one online for a multiplayer battle. 63/100 Expand

    For 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. Expand

    This game is no core gamer simulation. Sometimes the action is unfair and you should really be a fan of trial-and-error. Apache: Air Assault is nevertheless an entertaining game.
  2. It's hard to imagine casual types persisting with Apache for too long. It's certainly good enough for a game of its ilk but, once the novelty of pounding the ground wears thin, that's it. With just a single type of helicopter available it lacks the variety you get in most other air combat sims. [March 2011, p78]

    A game that does not transcend the borders, but it feeds the genre and stands as a proposal to be taken into account.
