i have played alot of gsmes,but this one the controls take a while to get used to and its pretty much the same objectives over and over. alot of times your just flying for hours trying to get to objectives. Then the flight of the helicopter is strange it you fly forward its fine but if you go to the left or right its just doing barrel rolls. though u can just barely turn to the right and then you go way to slow.
This game has potential, BUT a few of the missions have unrealistic goals. Sure you may get it on the 50th playthrough, but why should it take that long? You are tasked with defending static defenders who don't seem to be able to defend themselves at all. This would not be bad except your chopper doesn't respond to the controls predictably. The chopper will slide sideways and tilt some random way that does not make sense. You can choose to fly from inside the cockpit and have half of your screen taken up by the cockpit graphic, or fly outside with a third person view that seems to have your chopper flying a bit sideways and makes judging your flying very difficult. A great game, but held back by lackluster controls. Good for a rent if you like to be frustrated by failing missions, not because you failed an objective, but because you were unable to wrestle your helicopter back into combat because it wandered off despite your input on the controls.
