Apache Xbox 360 Game

Apache: Air Assault is a new combat flight simulation game based on the Apache AH-64D Longbow attack helicopter. The player takes on the role of three distinct Apache crews that each deal with what at first appears to be localized enemy activity, but eventually reveals itself to be part of the larger plan. The gameplay intercuts back and forth between the three crews as the action and stakes escalate.

Apache: Air Assault features 16 multi-stage missions involving air and ground strike operations off the coast of Africa, the mountains of the Middle East and the jungles of Central America, each meticulously created using high resolution map data from real-world satellite photography. Apache helicopters are some of the most sophisticated combat aircraft on the planet — the player gets to fly multiple variations of them, each with their own extreme firepower and highly-detailed damage modeling.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic game

Pros: Played the demo on xbox live, and pre-order the very next day. Arrived from Newegg.com last week and haven't put it down since. The graphics are great, not quite gorgeous, certainly not as good as Ace Combat 6 perhaps, but better than HAWX when you are down low--which, since it's a helicopter sim, you will be quite often. The local coop is a bit of a gimmick, but still fun in it's own right and a welcome inclusion. The missions aren't incredibly varied, but they are still engaging and fun, whether you're fighting insurgents in Tazirstan, drug dealers in central America, or pirates in Africa. The environments are varied and beautiful, the vehicles and explosions look convincing, and the limited customization of your helicopter is a nice inclusion. The game also has online coop (haven't tried it yet), a free flight mode, a 3D gallery for the aircraft, and full mission replays. It really is a great package brought to you by the makers of the fantastic IL-2 Sturmovik games!

Cons: The difficulty curve for flying the Apache on Realistic could easily be off-putting to those looking for those just looking to get in the sky and blast stuff with the iconic attack helicopter. The Training flight model is relatively forgiving though (my wife hates flight sims, but gave this one a shot at my urging and was able to complete 2 missions on the Training flight model). Landing the stinking thing in just the right spot is still a challenge!

Other Thoughts: Most of the achievements are pretty attainable--props to Gaijin Entertainment for that! For the sheer thrill and enjoyment I would have paid the standard $60 pricetag for this game, the fact that it's a budget title that released at $50 ($46.99 + free shipping here on Newegg.com) is a bonus! I would have liked to see a few other helicopters to fly as, as it stands, there are 3 different Apache's, a drone, and the classic Russian Hind. Where's the MH-6 Little Bird or the Ka-50 Black Shark? Also, the ability to choose your helicopter pre-mission in single player would have been cool. Still, if you like flight sims at all, this is a must buy!
