It's been this price for a couple of weeks at Play. Good to see games like this being released on the consoles, from the makers of the excellent IL-2 Sturmovik.

Unfortunately, it is a donkey.

For tehfirst couple of hours, I was in awe of flying an apache and then I realised that the graphics were poor, the controls were all over the place and targetting was dire. That was before the amazing enemy aimimg abilities and poor missions explanations.

I tried the demo and thought the controls were pretty good on the pro setting but v annoying on arcade. Still very very simplified compared to the old Apache Longbow PC sim, but pretty good.

It'll drop further in price though so I'll pick it up sub £15.

You may like! I loved the apache sims since getting one on the old Amstrad CPC 464 and used to spend hours on it. I also remember the Gunship games including the ones where you could fly a variety of helicopters. As a result, I was really disappointed in this as the older games had loads more playability and soul.

I agree with Lotus that the pro controls are supposed to be better, but after going through arcade as a primer, it puts you off so much that you have no real inclination to play it.

Multiplayer was poor too. Maybe I had visions of team work and cooperation but these fell at the first hurdle

Remember playing Gunship 2000 for hours on end.
