Okay. I just received this game today Friday, March 21st, 2014 and I personally think it sucks. It seems to me that with it being on the Training Difficulty Mode, which I think is supposed to easy, that you need to seriously know how to fly an Apache Helicopter. This things maneuverability is hoakey in the least. If you're trying to concentrate on hostiles that you're supposes to attack on Training Difficulty one of two things will occur. You'll either crash into the terrain or one of the hostiles are going to blow you out of the sky in this game. That's on the Training Mode Difficulty. Good grief. I would hate to see what the other difficulty is like. That is the Realistic Difficulty Setting. My suggestion to anyone wanting to play this game is to make sure you either actually know how to fly a helicopter, have experience in an actual military simulator for the Apache, or just leave it where it sits period. That's my opinion. If I could I would literally give this game a -10 because it sucks that bad in my opinion. Tom Clancy's HAWX, HAWX 2, and even the other Fighter Jet Simulation Games aren't this messed up.
In my opinion the designers of this game got a lot of things right. Having first hand experience flying helicopters and also first hand experience in AH64's I can tell you that this game flies like a real helicopter although not like a real Apache. I've owned this game for 3 yrs. the down side to this game is that several of the Scenarios are un-winnable
and the ACFT does not make maneuvers that a real Apache can make easily and you can't select your weapons load but, other than that it's entertaining

This has got to be the worst game I've played since whatever that submarine game was called. The controls are terrible and hard to use. I truly believe it would be easier to fly an actual helicopter. I will admit that I only played the game for about 30 minutes, but that was because I got so frustrated with trying to fly the helicopter and shoot at the same time. Do yourself a favor and don't rent this game. How it gets a rating above a 3-4 is beyond me.
