4.0 out of 5 stars Great console flight game... November 17, 2010
By J. Ray
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a shame that Apache: Air Assault will fly under most people's radar (no pun intended) this holiday season with all the other blockbuster games coming out. Especially since it's release is in the shadow of Call of Duty and with upcoming releases such as Gran Turismo 5, this game is bound to be ignored and in bargain bins after the holiday season. It really is a shame because the game is a true gem.
I am an aviation guru. In fact, I fly AH-64D Apache Longbows for the US ARMY. As an aviation nut and pilot, I cringe at most console flight games. I like my flight games with a degree of reality, not the unrealistic arcade games like Top Gun and After Burner. The only console flight games I enjoy are the Ace Combat series...that was until Gaijin Entertainment developed Il-2 Birds of Prey for consoles. Birds of Prey is what I envisioned a perfect console flight game should be. It blended realism with arcade type elements which made it user friendly and playable for console gamers. But, when I heard Gaijin was making an Apache game for consoles I was still skeptical. Helicopters are a lot harder to fly than airplanes. It takes both hands and feet to fly a helicopter and when you throw in radios, weapons, systems, etc., it takes all your fingers and concentration as well. I just didn't see that translating well to a console game. I'm happy to say, not only did Gaijin do a great job mimicking helicopter flight using a console controller, they made one hell of an authentic Apache game.
The game starts you off with a tutorial mission, in which you must start out using the training difficulty mode. There are three types of difficulty modes: Training, realistic, and veteran. Training mode simplifies everything from controlling the aircraft to the HUD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great air combat game November 17, 2010
By Cheese
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I knew nothing about this game before the demo was available on the PSN. I am a big fan of flight games, typically Ace Combat and recently HAWX 1 and 2. After the huge disappointment of HAWX 2 I was looking forward to a new, quality flight game. I was a bit skeptical of a helicopter based flight combat game, but more than willing to give it a try. The demo was great and after playing it, I preordered the game. I love the simulation aspects of the game, not sacrificing quality of gameplay for an easier experience. There are different levels of flight control difficulty: Training, which offers a simplified level of control; Realistic, which is, as one would expect, more realistic, not only in control but also in HUD and physics. The graphics are very nice, much better than I expected. Flight sims generally tend to have a highly detailed vehicle, and somewhat bland environments, but overall everything in this game is highly detailed. They did a great job not only modeling the aircraft, but also the environments. There is realistic weather and excellent lighting effects. Free flight mode lets you essentially set up a mission the way you want it to be, which is very nice considering that most flight games that offer a free flight mode just put you in a map without any action. You can choose to have allies and enemies both in the sky and on land in free flight. I very highly recommend this game to flight combat fans. I'll likely update this as I move further into the game. Play the demo, it's well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun, especially in co-op December 30, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It'd be hard for me to match some of the more exhaustive reviews already done of this game, but I'll throw in my two cents. This game has a lot to offer to just about everyone, and it seems to offer much of it in threes, because that's how Nicola Tesla would have wanted it.

Three control modes are offered, basic, realistic, and veteran. Likewise, three models of Apache are offered -- as well as a few other helicopters, flyable only in custom scenarios -- although if there is any real difference between them other than name and minor cosmetic details, I haven't noticed. There are three main weapon systems for engaging enemies - rocket pods, hellfire missiles, and the chin gun. Admittedly there is an ATA stinger missile system which has an optimal range of .20 to .25km, an extremely limited ammunition supply, and mediocre kill rate, so it doesn't count because that would throw off the threes.

The basic controls are perfect for players who want to jump right into the action - it only takes a little while to become proficient with these basic controls, but to master them takes much longer, though is a quite rewarding process all the same. While you can still perform some extremely agile aerobatic stunts, the level of control pales in comparison to the realistic mode.

Realistic controls offer a more true-to-life physics model for the Apache's flight systems, and takes much more finesse and skill to handle. Though I've mastered basic controls, the realistic controls are still troublesome and I find myself magnetically drawn to nearby canyon walls quite regularly. Fortunately, the game gives you a number of continues each mission, should you crash. How many? You guessed it - three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great helicopter game.
There aren't too many options for helicopter flying games out there. This is a good one. If you enjoy flying and fighting games, this will make a good addition to game collection.
