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.

Horrible not-at-all-optimized garbage.

You are welcomed by a "insert cd-key" window EVERY TIME you boot up the game, no matter how many times you have entered it before. A seizure-inducing spinning helicopter hangar menu screen makes your head hurt while you're trying to find anything in the options that will let you play with a controller - after all, it's supposed to be a simple arcade shooter, right? No such luck, I struggled with it for 5 minutes before quitting.

Charging anything for this in 2015 is a crime. Stay the §uck away and never give money to these people.

This game is the reason why you don't waste money on 10 random Steam keys on a Retail Website.

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.

Heli Heroes ranks up there as my least favorite shoot 'em ups. After to going through hoops to get the darn game run, I find that it was a huge waste of my time. Its just not fun! The voice acting is terrible, the controls are pathetic, and the graphics are meh. Don't buy it, not even for a nickel.

If you like games with Battlefield-like vehicle controls, good graphics, and fun, replayable content, then go play Battlefield because this game ♥♥♥♥ing blows.
