Greatest Helicopter sim on any platform
This is the most involved flight sim. Every motion on your device captured accurately requiring sensitive smooth pin point motion versus wild unrealistic Xbox-like movements. Immersion is infectious. Landing is tough but I like it that way. If you crash you start from the beginning....good!!! Makes you try harder and really focus on maneuvering, as you would if you were actually flying a helo. As a 13 year Marine Veteran who's flown on hundreds of helos in combat I vouch for this little treasure for those that can appreciate it. Be warned not for little kids, it's a flight sim not CoD Black Ops or Halo 4 (something anyone can pick up and play). Semper Fi developers great job! Now for the Iraq and Afghanistan version with AC130! I was a JTAC I'd love to see this done well with forward observers directing close air support and having to sty offset 35 degrees. Maybe make a "floating" dotted line in which the player has to stay within parameters to ensure no friendly or collateral damage in an urban airstrike.
William W. review: Please read, I will be grateful
I give this app five stars becuase of its user friendly controls that make flying these helicopters easier than other apps like xplane. Another comment id like to make is that i feel that this $3 app is way better quality in grapics on both the helicopters and the terrain, along with the other miscellaneous features than the $10 xplane apps or any other app. These add up to a well built cheap high quality app that runs smooth without glitching. I thank the creator off this app and to many new updates. One thing i might add is though this helicopter showed up for duty in veitnam so late that it is usually never associated with the war, i would like to see the UH-60 Blackhawk on a military transport mission or maybe even a search and rescue mission on the ocean. I would be greatly appreciative. Thankyou.
I think this is a great flight sim! Two things off the top of my head: 1. The way points are too touchy. You have to hit then just right for them to count. I also feel that most of the way points don't need to be there. If prefer if the game let us choose the route to our mission objectives.
2. I would like to see more in depth briefings with tactical and strategic maps of the theater of operations. The way most chopper pilots would. Achievements would be nice too.
Those are on top of more missions. This is a great game and I have honestly been looking for a good air cav game. If the way points are tweaked and the briefings given more meat this is easily a 5 star game for the price. Good job!
