No, just no. Another one of these damn horrible "simulators".
I paid 1€ for it, no way I would pay more than that for it.

This would have been awesome if it had been released about ten years ago.
Or, at least all right, fifteen years ago.

10/10 would spend 8.99 euros from 1998 again.

Also, after playing some more I noticed a disturbing lack of men in speedos with flourescent nipples, so I'd barely call this a helicopter simulator at all.

Very dissapointed. Was looking forward to this and it will not work. Gets to the "Go to Hanger" stage then crashes. Have posted on the help forum with no response for over a week. I realise there are people out there with this running fine but they seem to be the minority. Should have read the forum before purchase. Still hoping for a fix to allow me to get this running.......

I don't know if my computer isn't loading the game properly or if there is actually something wrong with the game, but the ground is not rendering for me.

It's still fun though.. Just have to fly by the instraments.

While most people knock this game for it's bad controls and graphics, I for one, am having a great time with this game. I find the controls are odd at first, but then again I've never flown a helicopter. While I do not have a joy stick, the keyboard controls are completely customizable are becoming much easier with play. In my opinion they do not inhibit gameplay at all. Besides its comic relief when you accidently blow up from hitting a tree because you put too much deceleration while trying to land. The blury graphical "problem" that I've seen mentioned can be easily fixed in the options menu by turning off depth blur and movement blur. All in all, I think this is a fun simulator that is worth giving a shot. I would suggest waiting to pick it up on while it's on sale though.
P.S. you get to pick up a beached whale in the third mission

I like the idea of the game, but for whatever reason, the ground doesn't show up on my computer. The trees show up, and, when eithin a certain radius, blades of grass show up, but never the ground. It makes it very difficult to judge the distance from the ground.

Nice game. It's not a sim. You have to edit the control inputs to fly easy. If you don't do that, you should make mistakes.
Nice helicopters, landscapes, sound, levels, graphics and... more. It's easy to learn how everything works.

It's my best helicopter simulation game untill now.

8/10

if you want to waste ten bucks for a game that crashes before you even get to play, then be my guest. this is absurd that this game is even in the steam library. dont buy it, waste of money. very dissapointing.
