After playing this game, which was given to me by a ♥♥♥♥ friend, i started to contemplate life. why would a game so horrible even exist, especially on steam? The only good part is hearing the great one-liners that get old after hearing one every kill or power-up you get. the graphics are awful even when compared to the other games released the same year. the voice acting is cancer inducing and the game just never seems to end. i only recommend giving this game to someone you truly hate

I wanted to give the game a chance since I really like top down shooters. It seemed to be in the style of old classics like "Desert Storm" for the Amiga. But even that game had a better handling 20 years ago than Heli Heroes. The controls are bad, the camera is shaky and tends to fade out completely. The action is lackluster, the aiming isn't good and there just Isn't much to do overall. Yes, I only played the game 20 minutes, but believe me, those 20 minutes are enough to make up your mind. I won't install it again and I can't recommend buying or playing it since it's both, a waste of time and money.

It's a moderate on-rails shooter. Price isnt bad, but so many other, better ways to spend your time.

Want a retro "schmup" where you're a helo (either American or Russian) that basically shoots everything on the map? That's Heli Heros. It's using 3D graphics, but there's no 3rd dimension in gameplay... you move left/right and a little forward/back. Moving forward increases forward speed, while pulling back gives you more time to shoot forward. You have cannon and "weapon", and you can choose which weapon to shoot via the other buttons. Controller is supported but remapping is limited as I can't map, say, "right trigger" to be cannon, only buttons (XYAB). You probably won't even have time to switch weapons, and some levels have time limits where you get extra fuel for shooting enemies and structures (hah!) if you want a simple arcade game, this is not bad, but you probably should be playing Spartan Assault instead. This game is a bit too retro for me.

This was a sad day for gaming.

I envy the people that had to work on this golden piece of crap.

There is so much wrong with this game, You can fly though moantains, missiles that should hit mis you, ''strategy'' = just hold down shift and ctrl and to top it off you have to hear the most terrible voice acting in your life with every kill you make.

If that wont stop you buying this game then you are a true Hero!

PS: Dont judge me i got this 1 for free!! :'(

Do not buy this, not even on sale. Outdated graphics, I can understand given that it is an old release. What makes it unenjoyable is that the game is more of a rail shooter where you are forced to follow a specific course and if you overshot items to pick up, there is no reversing for it. The sensitivity of speed control is way off and often at times, I find myself crashing into mountain sides, or passing enemies too quickly to clear all of them.

I had my hopes up when I saw this title for a bargain. It gave me a flashback of old classic top-down scrollers that I used to play with my friends as a kid. And this game seemed to have 3D graphics instead of bitmaps -- which in some cases does work out.

With anticipation rising I launched the game, checked the controls and started my flight. The pad controls felt suitable and the chopper felt to respond rather well. First target in sight! Fire! ... "Die, you terrorist dog!" ... WTF? Okay, so the ammo automatically hits the target if you are remotely aiming towards it, I can live with that. And I could even live with below mediocre level design and cloggy textures and below average sound effects. But I cannot tolerate those darn pilot comments every time a target is taken out or you are getting hit! Sure, there's a variety in those but that's pretty much all you hear along side with poorly suiting sound track.

Four training missions was enough for me. There are better games to spend your time with than this. There is a 2 player co-op but I rather have a friend join me for a game of Rayman than Heli Heroes. There's nothing heroic in this game.

I wated to like this game, I really did. I have a soft spot in my heart for these mindless shmups, a nice way to unwind instead of playing something that taxes your brain. Graphics are good for release date (2002, at least they're honest about it), but the physics leave something to be desired - your chopper often clips through terrain, and why you can't change height is beyond me. But there's one thing that killed my enjoyment of the game..

The voiceover.

The voiceover when you destroy an enemy, take a hit, grab a powerup.... just awful. Immediately breaks any kind of immersion or concentration. God-awful.

Pass unless you get as part of a bundle, then mute it and enjoy a couple of minutes.

I played this game a long time ago. To be honest, it wasn't anything special. Visuals were nice. But voice and comments of your pilot were annoying, and shooting was way too casual (more appropriate for younger kids).
Overall, in these days, I wouldn't reccomend this game.

Pretty bland shooter game. It brings nothing new to the table, it gets boring after awhile, the graphics are pretty bland, and the voice acting is god-awful. There are far better shooter games out there, and this isn't one of them. Recommended only if you get it dirt cheap.

This is not at all what I was expecting. I thought it would be more like Desert Strike on the SNES/PS. Controls and gameplay were not very enjoyable. Graphics settings also didn't stick so it was playing at an extremely low resolution.

It's a rail based shooter that you control the speed at which you advance, but don't the ability to stop and shoot, or aim very well at a particular target. Not to be snide, but arcade games 15 years ago played a lot better, and looked better.

Worst game I've ever bought. Thought it might be like those old helicopter games (desert strike etc), turned out to be nothing like them. Linear, repetitive, unimaginative and boring gameplay with so few features you are left in awe of how terrible it is. If you are looking for a soulcrushing in depth experience of how bad a game can turn out, buy this game, if not, don't waste your money. Bought it on sale for near nothing, still not worth it. Bleh.
