Product Description

Amazon.com

The Comanche series of helicopter games has always provided just the right mix of simulation and arcade gameplay to provide huge doses of adrenaline-charged action. Now, with the release of Comanche Gold, players new to the series along with seasoned veterans can pilot the Army's premier attack helicopter through nine campaigns and a variety of single missions. One of these new campaigns is entirely new, and if that's not enough you can use the new mission creator to make your own missions. Other enhancements over Comanche 3 include new graphics that incorporate weather effects, a loadout screen for arming the chopper, and wingmen who react better when the action heats up.

Helicopters are all about down-in-the-weeds flying, and it is here that Comanche Gold really delivers. The terrain modeling is spectacular, capable of rendering lush valleys, rolling hills, jagged mountains, and everything in between. Few gaming experiences compare to ducking into a steep canyon, threading your way through at over 100 mph to shake a pursuing enemy, then suddenly bursting out into a clearing packed with enemy soldiers who send a barrage of tracers crisscrossing past your now exposed chopper. The terrain is somewhat pixelated, but the tradeoff in terms of accurate elevation changes more than makes up for this flaw. Few arcade-oriented simulations of any type can compare to Comanche Gold in terms of pure fun, and the strategy guide included with this package is a nice bonus. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Realistic elevation changes in the terrain are fun to fly through
  • Arcadelike flight model is among the best of its kind
  • Target-rich environments make for nonstop action
Cons:
  • Graphics are showing their age

This is a well coded helicopter sim, a very realistic flight model can be selected, or novices can use a "dummied down" version to get their feet wet. There are plenty of missions to fly and includes a head-to-head multiplayer mode, or a scenario-based multiplayer mode. The graphics are very good, some complexity could be added, but all-around very good and very entertaining.

I've been playing the Comanche game series since version 1 in the DOS days. I know these games better than anyone who's written any of these reviews. Comanche Gold is nothing more than Comanche 3, only upgraded to a Windows version and with new missions added. The engine is the same, settings are the same, graphics are the same (but with increased resolution), sound is the same, and wingman and enemy AI is the same (though they claimed it was vastly improved). Now many years old, this game is still fantastic and one of the best helo sims you can get for multiple reasons:

Flight Model: The flight model is as complex or accurate as you want it - or as dumbed down and "Nintendo" as you want it. Many settings are at your disposal. If you have full HOTAS and rudder pedals, you can change the many control settings to be very accurate. Top notch compared to others. I can also run this game on a 133MHz Pentium I pulled out of mothballs or on the latest, greatest P4s with gigabytes of RAM, and the helo flies the same without speeding up or becoming unrealistic. That's how well the engine and flight model were written. I will even dare say that the flight model feels better and more solid than the otherwise vastly superior Comanche 4.

AI: The AI for enemies and wingmen in Comanche 3 (for DOS) was not very realistic, but very adequate for the game. Nova Logic claims to have vastly improved on it for Comanche Gold. I will state that it is much better now, but still not perfect. I will simply call it "adequate" and "average". To this day, however, I still have yet to see ANY game - whatsoever - with a truly realistic enemy AI. They're getting closer, but still have a long way to go.

ever since I bought USAF I was like great but I need a Sim for a chopper. Comanche Gold suited my needs, this sim has good graphics, runs on most PC's and has over 80 missions. You can contol everything from altitude hold to extending and retracting the Cargo bay doors.
Let me tell you about this chopper, it has the latest stealth techonolegy, the Radar sig. is 600X smaller than the AH-64 Apache. If you hover at 60ft. no one will see you. This isn't bad for $19. When I bought this I was wondering what was the catch... Truth is no catch.

It is good game for rotor heads. It not as advance as competitors Longbow. But it does for the age of the sim still looks pretty good in this time of 3dfx accelators and geforce of acccelotors. It also a very fun game. I would recommend it.

Great game, easy to figure out functionality and fun to play. However; when I upgraded my system to Windows 8, it doesn't work, even with administrative authority. Other than that, it worked great and I would have given it a 5 star rating.

An oldie yes but definitely gold - as with the flavour of most of Novalogics simulators, there is more emphasis on combat and atmosphere then a study in realism, but this is what one plays Novalogic sims for.

This is a great prelude to Comanche 4 which really makes a big advance on the graphics. But this game is great in itself and can now be played on windows 7 through the fixes made available on the web - if you just look up comanche gold and windows 7 you will no doubt come across the fixes for the game here [...] in the downloads section - a great resource site overall.

When I first got this game, I really loved it. But after couple intense months of playing this game, I got bored. I even don't know where it is now. Some missions are easy, some difficult. For beginner chopper or flight sim fans, this could be fun. But after a while i'm sure you will get bored with this "ancient" game.
sorry for gramatical errors, guys
