The 2000 release of MicroProse Software's Gunship! represents a total rebuild of the company's original games from 1986, 1991, and 1996, upgraded for Windows 95 and Windows 98 gameplay. While totally revamped, the core of gameplay remains focused on piloting attack helicopters in both simulation and action modes, as well as head-to-head or cooperative multiplayer action. Flight modes include easy (simplified for novices), enhanced, and realistic (experts).
Players can pilot the AH-64D Apache (US), Westland Apache (UK), Eurocopter Tiger (Germany), and Mil-28 Havoc (Russia) depending on selected gameplay mode and missions. Features include a Fly Now mode (instant action), Single Battle options (standalone pre-generated missions), a large, multi-mission Campaign mode, a Battle Builder option to create customized missions, 114 vehicles, and 85 types of weapons. Players can take control from either the pilot or gunner's cockpit perspective and scale the action to personal preference by adjusting enemy AI, conditions, complexity and much more. ~ Michael L.
