    The game is different. 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 game is different. You may think a game that consists souly on flying is a bore but you would be greatly mistaken.

    It's not the Ace Combat for helicopters I was hoping for. The game looks good but gameplay is problematic. Clearly the devs were aiming for a realistic experience but it's ill-suited for the limited Xbox 360 controller. I tried the PC version for a while and it was clear that consoles weren't the best platform for this game.

    I did like the realism of the flight simulation, maps and graphics of this game. I do think it was lacking in most other aspects of a military air ground task force. I think the 100+ targets on each mission is about as unrealistic as it gets. There was many missing aspects of this game like the air superiority factor that combat fighter jets would have enforced, and ground targets amassedI did like the realism of the flight simulation, maps and graphics of this game.

I give it a D- for realism. 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.

    It's not a bad game but it is outstripped by developer Gaijin Entertainments other offerings within the same market. Unless you're someone who really must get to the chopper, there are far better flight simulators available, including the excellent IL-2 series. Granted, it's not on consoles, but they really aren't the weapon of choice for simulations.

    A competent helicopter simulator. It will most certainly push some gamer's buttons and become a well loved addition to their military combat collection. But I'm not sure how large that market is.
