    This reboot of an old franchise improves on the basic formula in almost every way. HD graphics ensure nice visuals and accessible, but challenging gameplay keeps you interested the whole time. You won't regret buying this fun little PlayStation Network game.

    A great tribute to the original game and the classics shooters. It's not perfect, but your varied missions and simple gameplay make it a very fun game.

    The basics of Choplifter haven't changed one bit since its debut in 1982. You still control a helicopter on a 2D plane, rescuing people. Unfortunately you don't always feel in control of the chopper you're flying, which can lead to some unnecessary deaths. [February 2012, p.100]

    It does get repetitive after a while, but there's funny dialogue, simple yet effective mechanics, and 'copter unlocks to keep you hooked. [March 2012, p.95]
