This game is THE helicopter game. It is an old game, yes, but personnaly I find it very amusing and nice to play! I used to play it when I was younger and now that I refound it I am so happy. You can play alone or multiplayers. It is better playing with a joystick. You actually can do everything you want with your helicopter : you can follow the mission but you can also .... get crazy! and kill your allies, destroye trucks, trains, gasoline tanks etc... . When you fight the enemy, it can be against another helicopter or against ground units. As well, you have several types of missile, rocket etc.. . Most people will dislike it because it is old and there are nowadays better helicopter games, yes but well you have to try Commanche 4 which is epic!

Graphics : 3/5

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 still remember playing this game in 2005, a truly epic helicopter flying experience. The graphics in this game are just great and enjoyable, play it yourself to see how amazing it is (remember this game was made 2001). The game combines simulation with arcade controls, missions participate on many locations were action is both on ground and air. And voice actings are realistic as the gameplay, which are just incredible and amazing.
For me 10/10.

This is Griffon 2-6. Review completed. Returning to base

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
