Rated 10 out of 10 by Opus Excellent!
This game is amazing. The controls are real, the sounds are real, the models and textures are real. This is a REAL hardcore game. Anyone who bashes it doesen't know the first thing about a realistic game. All thos COD and Halo fanboys that claim thier games are 'realistic' or 'the future' obviously don't know what they're talking about. You want a truely realistic game? This is it. I myself have been waiting for a good AH64D sim sience Team Apache for the PC in the 90s. This game is what I've been waiting for. I'm no retied pilot or RC heli pilot or ex military or anything, I'm just a fan of the raw power an Apache holds and how it can really ruin an enemy's day.. Forever! Haha! But seriously I'm in love with this game. Everything except sound recieves a 10. Sound gets a 9 for repetitive soundtrack and a sound glitch.

This game is awesome. A really great game such as this one isn't necessarily easy to master. Every mission that you attempt, as you progress through the many missions to defeat the enemy, helps to sharpen your skills and make you ready for the next mission. When you get frustrated the best thing to do is to work on your shooting accuracy. The game play is awesome. In the heat of battle as you destroy the enemy you hear rockets whizing by you and bullets hitting and bouncing off the tough skin of the Apache. Before getting this game I read a review written by an active Apache pilot who loves this game and said that the game play was very realistic. The best improvement for this game would be getting more campaigns and new missions so that the challenge is continually refreshed.

From the makers of IL-2 Sturmovik comes this diamond in the rough, this little gem of a flight combat game - with helicopters! Finally! Tailorable flight experience for novices through seasoned sim pilots, and featuring a host of co-op modes and free flight/skirmish scenarios, it seemed like the perfect game to fill the complete void in quality air combat games. The demo was released a few days ago on Live/PSN and confirms everything I've wished for and more. Great graphics? Check. Realistic flight model and controls (inluding joystick support): Check. Co-op pilot/gunner online AND same-screen? Check. Co-op team based missions and scenarios? Check.
Being published by Activision, I'm sure they've dedicated all their resources to the launch of CoD: Black Ops and unfortunately neglected this masterpiece any sort of advertisement, which is a shame. And although Apache:AA is being released on the same day as NFS: Hot Pursuit (a game I have been looking forward to forever) after playing the demo I can at this point say that Hot Pursuit will have to wait...
Download the demo and try it for yourself. You will certainly be pleased if you are looking for a high quality, realistic air combat game. There is definitely a market for these kind of games, they just have to be done right - and Apache: AA plays like it's full of win.

I just finished playing the Apache demo for the XBOX 360, and I have to say I was blown away. I was very sceptical about a Helicopter game and how the control scheme would be, having been a fan of the Ace Combat series I was hoping it would be compatible with the flight stick controller. After scrolling through the control schemes and set-ups, I was very pleased to find that the ACE EDGE Flight stick was listed as I had hoped. It took a litle getting used to ( again I'm used to flying planes NOT choppers) but after a few minutes, it felt natural. The demo was awesome, and I predict the finished product will be even better.

I am glad that a helicopter flight simulator game has finally come out on the 360. This game is not for people who are only the run'n gun, first person shooter (ex: Call of Duty/ Halo) fans. This is about as real as it gets for video games. The graphics are awesome and the game play is just as good. One of the many features of this game that I like is that a second player on the local console (not online) can be the gunner in the same helicopter. Many games these days do not have the second player option for local games, unless you have set up a system link to another console.
Rated 0 out of 10 by PappyOG Where's The BUZZ?????
I am anxiously awaiting this release as there has not been a simulation like this one released on the XBOX 360 since it's debut. A few screen shots is all we have seen. If it is as immersive as Activision is claiming, let's see some gameplay. A release date of 11-16-10 and not even a box cover yet? There are a lot of Sim Pilots out here waiting for a decent flight simulator, give us something to chew on Activision!!

I fly rc helis & playing this game on realistic is like flying my T-rex 600e. If you fly rc helis or are thinking of trying, this is the game for you. I love the demo & i preordered the game - cant wait...

Played the demo... worth buying from what I see.. Game is only 39.99 has good graphics and pretty solid gameplay especially if you like gun cam on Modern Warfare. I will buy this for sure when it comes out.
