About This Game

HELI HEROES updates the old-school "shoot'em up" arcade machine games to new dimensions on today's PCs. You command an AH-64 Apache Longbow or a Russian Hokum helicopter. The goal is to fly through various levels and carry out the mission objectives. During the missions you will find different types of weapons and additional offensive and defensive systems. The game's look and feel is made up of a 3D landscape that you fly your helicopter over, through and into. The mix of reality and Sci-Fi missions vary from destroying Iraqi oilfields up to fighting against the "Big Boss" enemies in Alaska.

I tried to give it a chance even though it does have a lot of negative reviews but the game is just crap. Everything looks exactly the same and it's very repetitive. I felt like I was playing the same level everytime just with a different objective.

Graphics are very generic as with the voice acting and sounds. Some of the pickups I saw I could never pickup so not sure what they were for. I just can't recommend this game when there are better games out there to play.

2/10 - Another Fine Topware Product

I'm beginning to notice a trend. If it starts up and says "Topware" I can count on (2) things: 1) It's going to suck. 2) You'll have to enter your CD-Key multiple times.

The gameplay literally made me noxious. Fly through some carved out mountains, shoot things, get sick.. Repeat.

Worth nothing; found in ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bundles.

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.
