AusGamers: Apache: Air Assault Review

AusGamers: We take this newish console flight simulator to the skies and see how it flies.

"All of your in-flight time is complemented by some genuinely impressive long-range graphics and a realistic physics engine. Things don’t look as pretty up close, but considering the fast pace the combat played out for us, this wasn’t an overly noticeable detraction. There were also some odd hit-detection fails where we were able to fly our helicopter through tree tops, but everything else about the physics engine was top notch; particularly the damage modelling that can quickly affect the handling of your chopper. For instance, taking damage to your main rotor doesn’t make you explode straight away; instead, you may notice some irregular wonkiness in how it’s spinning and will gradually lose altitude over time. Bottom line, damage in this game is taken seriously. "

its obvious that a great deal of effort went into making this game, but im pretty sure i could get my car to handle better at that altitude

Handling is pretty strange, especially when you increase the difficulty.



RotorStorm is an unity 3d awesome war game where you are playing with a helicopter and you are alone against an entire army. Your mission is to destroy as many enemies as you can and complete all 6 challenging missions.

GamePlanet: Apache: Air Assault Review

Mediocre games are notoriously hard to critique. We’re hardwired for hyperbole: it’s easy to write thousands of words effortlessly praising the finer points of a blockbuster title, and a poor game is even easier. But when a game is neither, things get a bit more difficult: the game may not have glaring flaws, but it may lack any number of effervescent qualities that see it rise to the top.

Apache Air Assault is such a game, one that tempts this reviewer to trade in terrible clichés in an attempt to explain to the reader that this title might appeal to niche enthusiasts.

MMGN: Apache: Air Assault Review

MMGN: Apache: Air Assault is best if you master the controls and experience both single and online multiplayer. It’s realistic enough for most pros, but more casual players will struggle to master the flight controls, even on the training difficulty, while the fun is to be had on realistic. That leaves it as a fairly niche title for combat flight sim fans.

There will never be a helicopter game that will top Desert Strike.
