Tons of fun, and still runs great on Win 7 x64. Max resolution is kind of low, but overall graphics are still running fine.

Comanche 4 is an enjoyable mix of fun and realism - realism to an extent that you can jump in, figure things out quickly, then play a few missions. There is no flight model, so there's really no steep learning curve. The only thing a player needs to practice is detecting anti-air and learning how to use cover to engage.

I miss Novalogic, and I wish they would give some of these older games some TL&C. Comanche 4, along with Armored Fist are gem's of the past - unfortunately Armored Fist doesnt run - but bring back some great nostaglia.

Great helicopter sim ever based my opinion. Easy control, so we don't need have a lot time to play well. Just remember some necessary button, so we can fly and launch hellfire to enemy bunker. :),

YES OH GOD YES! One of the classics! Grab your joysticks and unleash the fire! I liked Comanche 3 better, but 4 is good too. Great controls, interesting missions, challenging, fun and in-depth.

Warning: it is OLD and it shows. It really does. It's not an easy game either. I recommend it with all my heart anyway

Comanche 4 is quite OLD and it shows. It really does. But for a 2001 game, it is to be expected! Still, I had fun playing this helicopter simulation. The game is quite challenging as if you get destroyed, you have to restart the whole mission. Thankfully (or not), the missions aren't very long and you can beat the game under 4 hours, sadly.

PROS:
+Interesting missions.
+Tight controls (plays very well with Keyboard and Mouse).
+Gameplay is great!
+Authentic and very accessible (easy learning curve).
+Game works without a hitch on modern systems.

CONS:
-Graphics are indeed dated for modern gaming but I'd guess it wasn't that great looking back in 2001. Also, knowing Novalogic, that never were their strong suite anyway.
-Might not appeal to the hard-core sim fans.
-Very short campaign mode (can be beaten under 4 hours).

RECOMMENDATION:
To any and all fan of military helicopter simulation, I'd say give this game a whirl!

RATING:
7.5 / 10

I played with the expectation of comanche gold graphics, controls, and quality. I was dissapointed to say the least. However, after putting some time into it and messing around the game, I played through most of the missions succesfully. The missions are a little on the short side and a few times unclear as to what to do next but still fun to play.

It is a good (old) game overall, just a bit on the simple side and of course the graphics definetly show their age.

this is a fun game to goof off for some of the missions. the learning is all most flat and that helps alot as the missions get harder to "you want me to do what?!?!". just stick to your guns and rockets hug the ground and you should do fine
should...

I love Comanche: Gold. It was 3rd in the series plus extra maps. It was more realistic and is a simulator. Comanche 4 is more arcade-ish but that's ok. It has cutscenes and other features. They did bring back the voice actors as they are noticeable but Comanche: Gold seems to offer more variety and better graphics. Or maybe it's just my eyes. This is still a great game. I wish Steam sells the older Comanche! Novalogic is a great game developer! 9/10! Get it, if you like arcade-style flight games!
