Over dit spel

The brand new helicopter game from independent developers Bohemia Interactive – creators of the award-winning military-Sim series Arma 2. Built upon over 10 years of experience in cutting-edge simulator development, Take On Helicopters immerses players within beautifully rich landscapes and an authentic flight model.

The player takes on the role of a civilian helicopter pilot. Harry Larkin’s aviation business has fallen on tough times. Built up over decades, it’s now only days away from closure. His sons face an uncertain future, struggling to save the company their father spent his whole life building. Together, they must take on contracts and competitors; together, they take on helicopters!

Take your first steps towards mastering rotor-wing flight across a massive range of enjoyable challenges, or create your own missions using the powerful easy-to-use mission editor.

Take to the air above two beautifully rich and expansive environments, based upon real-world North American and South Asian terrain-data.

Take on cutting-edge technology, helicopters modeled in stunning detail, a large-scale, open-world sandbox and authentic flight dynamics…

Take On Helicopters Offers:

  • High fidelity flight dynamics modelling
  • Richly modelled helicopters & cockpits
  • Expansive & detailed environments
  • Powerful & intuitive mission editor
  • Multiplayer – co-op & competitive scenarios

Take On Helicopters features two huge terrains:

  • Seattle, a 60x60km chunk of North America
  • South Asia, a 120x120km terrain populated with vegetation and urban structures.

Take On Helicopters introduces the player to three distinct classes of helicopter:

If you're looking for a semi-realistic civilian helicopter-simulation, this is it. Some might be turned off by the the lack of things you can do in the cockpit. However, I think that you can do JUST enough to make it fun, without being forced to read a manual at the same time. You will need an above-average computer to even run this game, since the engine is.. Well.. Poorly optimized. Sit back, take off, fly civilians around, take pictures of whales and listen to your favorite songs while enjoying a glass of whisky - that is what this game is about - and it does JUST that, pretty darn good.

video of me doing one of the extreme time trials in this game:

Take On Helicopters has similar strengths and weaknesses to the ARMA series, only more so. It tries to bridge the gap between simulators and conventional video games, which it does with some success. There are few niche games like this, so it is good when one shows up, even if it is not perfect. It reminds me a bit of SimCopter from 1996.
Realism and flight physics are very good but not perfect. There is a start-up procedure, but it is simplified. There is no autopilot but there is an optional auto-hover helper. The controls have the same kind of problems as in ARMA, and I had to spend a long time tweaking them. Unlike most sims, you control a human as you would in any shooter game, who in turn can board and pilot helicopters realistically.
There is a career mode that has interesting missions and a decent believable story. It takes 10-15 hours but I wish it was longer. There is also a small management aspect - you can buy new equipment, inspect your helicopter, and pay for maintenance to prevent breakdowns. While the voice acting is good, it does have a low-budget / mod feel with crude character animations etc. And as with ARMA, some missions were a bit difficult, and had unreliable scripting, forcing me to retry a few times. Overall, I still enjoyed it.
Then there are the more challenging time trials, where you have to fly as fast as you can through virtual hoops placed between buildings and under bridges etc. The courses range from moderate to insane. These are probably the most intense and challenging races I have tried in any game. They are awesome, but do require you to have mastered the helicopter controls. There are also some combat missions with a Hind attack helicopter in a desert map.
Contrary to what most say, the graphics look good and I get decent fps (with a i5-4570 and overclocked GTX660 - check my video link), but I did have to carefully tweak the video settings. The Seattle environment is detailed and beautiful.
Sadly multiplayer does not work, due to the gamespy server shutdown. While you can just about play with a keyboard or controller, you really do need a '3-axis + thruster' joystick (about $30).
Despite its flaws, I would strongly recommend this to mature patient gamers willing to try a flight sim.

I enjoy playing the rescue games on this flight simulator. It gives a better sense on how a helicopter should properly work, though I never had flown one in real before. It's fun to fly around and simply have good time, if you enjoy playing with helicopters and just flying around for the site scenes.

Probably on of the best flight simulators.
If you have played Arma2 you will love this and this is still better than Arma3 Helicopters DLC. Sad that there arent so many players because you also can normal Arma2 in the game on maps like seattle... and there are hundered of new units and old units from arma2. the editor is the same like in arma2. its like a big arma2 dlc. TOH is maybe the first flight simulator where you can swim as a whale:) and the story is so good that it feels like gta or something... if you dont want to fly just steal a car and a ak-47 and have some fun:)

This game was ditched by the makres, could have been one of the best Helicopter sims around but they just left it...
the game itself is good, and with a joystick its really fun, when I got my joystick I starting playing this again and it was ok, but some of the game play issues where still there, (YOU can play this withouth a joystick,) the game is not that hard, but its over all issues with controls and map design does show simply if you look closer into the game, I would say just geting ARMA Combined ops would be alot more fun rather than spending any money on this game

3/10

Ok, so if you only have mouse and keyboard and want to play this game buy a lot of antidepresants.
would only cautiously recomend to those with a Flying Joystick ;)

Very fine rotor-wing realism.

I'm a skilled when it comes to flying helicopters from Arma 2 and Arma 3, the game developer's 2 other very famous games. I thought i'd be good at this one too, turns out i was wrong.

RotorLib everybody, realistic realism.

I'd recommend you get some flight gear, such as VR goggles and a flight stick.

Otherwise, thanks to it's great graphics, you can actually play Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead missions on this game when merged, this makes the game pretty much the same but much more graphically realistic.

Pros:
- Realistically hard to fly.
- Good graphical quality.
- Ability to merge with A2 and A2OA, providing a more graphically enhanced platform for the games.
- It's realistic?

Cons:
- Realistically hard to fly, no really, maybe you really should at least get a cyclic stick or throttle.
- With good graphics comes good hardware requirements.

Its a Joy to lift up and hover. Was doing horrible in Flight Sim X. Bit Difficult to learn, yet simpler than a real simiulation like DCS World. Must do more hours of gameplay. Its worth it ~ 7.5/10

Take on Helicopters is still a very challenging game even though the Online experience has now been deprecated as the normal online servers are now unreachable. It needs to be played without the auto-hover option though because that makes it too easily but those without experience with helo-simulations will find it necessary to use it at first or it will simply be unplayable.
On Trainee level it can be played with just keyboard + mouse, they higher levels are probably near impossible without either rudder pedals or a good flying joystick.
This is probably for the somewhat more patient player and young players may find this all a bit too slow compared to arcade type games. This game is either for you or it is not but those that find it fun will probably find they also want to have a look at flight simulators like DSC (possibly the best helo simulator atm), FSX or X plane. Keep in mind that the helos in Take On Helicopters do not have a completely true Flight Model : purists would be disappointed, but it feels plenty realistic for the beginner to the helo sim genre.

A very unique kind of balance between a game and a simulator, that certainly won't fit anyone. I review and rate this game as it succeeded as a flight simulator to me, a flight simulator ethusianist.

If you haven't noticed already, this is Arma. The same engine, only with upgraded visuals, picture-in-3D picture availability, and a highly realistic flight model for helicopters. It also works like an Operation Arrowhead, that you can mount all Arma 2 DLCs into this, plus some ToH-specific expansions (yeah, you can play the normal Arma at this, with tanks, Chernarus, guns n stuff).

The main feature of this game, it's flight engine- it feels pretty damn realistic, even when compared to FSX or other simulators. I've spent some years on FSX and had no problems in X-Plane, but this game still needed some balls to master on the most realistic difficulty.
Do not play this game without a joystick, you're gonna miss a lot or not even be able to fly at all. I don't know if it's even possible to handle the helicopters safely at the most realistic setting, without majorly using the auto-hover option, flying only by mouse or keyboard. Joystick settings provide all forms of options, such as rebinding some axis, deathzones or individual sensitivities. Controls use the classical, Arma style of options, which was already confusing enough at Arma 2 but copied all the controls over to here and added several more to that, to make it even harder to navigate.

The campaign is quite fun and challenging. Between each missions, you're able to dwell around on the helipad, check your helicopter for issues, upgrade or repaint it and also buy a different one (for an ammount of cash that takes some time to get. By upgrades I mean usually mission-only equipment, such as a camera or a hook, but you can also buy doors, seats or a rear mirror which might come useful sometimes. It's not much of pimp yo choppa, and could be a bit more extended. But rather than that, I would have more than just three god damn machines, it also has no unique rideable planes. The description is kinda misleading in here:

WHAT IT SAYS: Three classes of helicopters
WHAT IT MEANS: Three helicopters, each with many different liveries or custom one-color RGB painting

Campaign is easy to screw up by selling a wrong helicopter and if you do so, you're bound to doing extremely tideous mission which self-repeats itself and takes even from 30 to 60 minutes (by adequately using the time acceleration), dozens of times. Asked other people several times but noone replied, because the community for this game (on both BIS forums and here) is probably dead.

The multiplayer is also dead. The server list is not working and ToH did not receive it's own server list hosting, like other Arma games did. The multiplayer mission making of this game has a high potential, but nobody apparently used it, as the community also doesn't care much about this thing (but you can still fly n fight around with friends if one can host). The new maps are HUGE, the Asia is like several kilometers across (expect a lower ground detail aswell, but it has one very large city full of accessible buildings, several times bigger than Chernogorsk), so flying in the asian map wouldn't feel "small" at all, even with a C-130, where amazing missions could be created.

But my goal is to rate this game for it's realism, not for how much armaish flaws or bad optimisation it has. And if you're a flight sim lover looking for challenges, I can't think of any harder helicopter flying experience. But if you expect a good combat experience as in Arma, lots of multiplayer action, detailed terrain and can't run Arma 2 decently with full settings and 3000 - 4000 visibility, you should rather leave this game where it is

- Best User Friendly Helicopter Simulator
- Wide Selection Of Choppers
- Tons Of Fun Missions With A Cheesy Story
- Awesome Flying Physics
- Relax To Music And Fly Around Seattle!

=============
Journal Experience
=============

Journal Entry 1

I chose to fly the smaller black scouty chopper and after getting it in the air and learning the basics on flying I took off to venture the city. I was able to enjoy relaxing music and glide around Seattle taking in the sites. Beautiful vistas and sun flares bouncing off my windows, true relaxation.

Journal Entry 2

After a slightly more aggressive song entered my headphones I decided to test the limits of my chopper and dropped it closer to street level. I tested my skills by following a black Suv at 15M off his roof for what seemed like an hour, im sure the driver will go home paranoid tonight thinking the government is after him.

Journal Entry 3

Landed inside the stadium field in the middle of the city after fighting with some very violent winds. Felt like a pro even though im sure most pilots would be able to land a jet in the space that I had just proudly conquered.

Journal Entry 4

Unfortunately when I exited my chopper to walk around the stadium I forgot to tune down the lift controls.... So upon exiting I turned around just in time to see my chopper hover onto its side make a violent grinding noise and explode in a fiery wreckage.

Journal Entry 5

Now chopper-less I decided to proceed on foot and explore. But to my loss there was no open exits in the stadium so here I sit until they host the next baseball game :(
