    If you spend some time learning how to fly the Apache in the realistic mode, the game provides you with some very entertaining hours.

    Another proof of how good the guys at Gaijin are at what they do. An entertaining, deep and challenging helicopter flight simulator.

    Helicopter sims may be a niche interest but after IL-2 Sturmovik this is the best flight simulation available on current consoles.

    While some graphical blandness and frustrating gameplay elements chip away at the game's overall experience, in the end this is going to be a game that appeals mainly to the flight simulator audience anyway.

    Maybe saying that this is currently the best helicopter simulation game is not the greatest of the praise due the lack of competition, but certainly it is an enjoyable game.

    A very interesting game but somewhat unrefined. Good environments and missions design isn't followed by a suitable storytelling, denying us a more deep immersion. It stays however a good flight combat sim, with a very solid and satisfying gameplay.

    Always-fantastic flight physics and map design make up for the occasional duff level. [Feb 2011, p.106]

    Overall, Apache: Air Assault is up there as one of the best simulations you can find on a console.

    The game isn't bad but it does have a very narrow focus on Apache helicopter combat.

    Apache: Air Assault is a great flight simulator that really knows how to show the true importance of helicopters during warfare. The controls and the gameplay won't let casual gamers join in on the fun and so Air Assault is really for those that have been playing with toy helicopters as a kid.

    Apache: Air Assault faithfully captures all the nuance of piloting an attack helicopter while including plenty of extras to keep fanatics coming back for more.

    The combat is a sight to behold, but the missions are more than little formulaic thanks to the nature of the aircraft.

    I cannot understand why everyone is coming down so hard on this game. It is excellent.

This is THE most realistic flight experience to be had on a console. I was initially scared off by all the bad reviews on this site, so I downloaded the demo from XBL. 15 minutes with the demo and I was hooked. If you're at all interested in flying, or helicopters, or just blowing the crap out of stuff with rockets and machineguns you owe it to yourself to at least try the demo before you dismiss this game. The flying is hard to master, but that's part of the fun and challenge of this game. Don't listen to the negative reviews. Try the game, then decide for yourself. Full Review »

You may think a game that consists souly on flying is a bore but you would be greatly mistaken. The raw entity of the game is all there and it is a very fun game. The game challenges you due to the occassional difficulty and provides you with the means for a tactical victory which in most cases pays off. My only issue is the campaigns all thats good about this game. The customization is bad and so are its online capabilities but the game is still ok Full Review »
