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

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.

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
