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
- 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
- Graphics are showing their age

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
sorry for gramatical errors, guys
