Apache AH-64: Air Assault, released as Operation Air Assault in Europe, puts players behind the controls of one of the most sophisticated and deadly attack helicopters in the Boeing arsenal. The fully functional cockpit features a damage meter and displays for engines, rotor brakes, wheel brakes, hover, current weapon, air speed, compass, radar, vertical lift, RPM, torque, collective, and fuel. At the press of a key (F12), pilots can select either arcade mode (recommended for keyboard control) or physics mode, which is based on real physics and recommended for joystick use.
The Apache AH-64 comes equipped with four major weapons: 30mm chain gun, Hydra Rockets (unguided), Hellfire Missiles (long range), and Zuni Rockets (unguided but more powerful than Hydras). More than 30 missions will keep virtual pilots busy blasting away at enemy foot soldiers, jeeps, trucks, armored vehicles with cannons and rocket launchers, tanks, and gunboats. The in-game help file provides a list of important tips and tricks, such as most effective use of various weapons, targeting hints, and maneuvering and evasion tactics. ~ Michael L.
