I don't understand why there are so many negative comments on the game, I've played Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Longbow II as well as Take on Helicopters, and all have their strengths and weaknesses, but this game felt like I was actually learning to fly a helicopter as some of the fast paced missions stumped me for a bit, but with persistence and saving at key points, it has been a very good experience.

Should I play this?:
If you enjoyment of being immersed in a good story, and upgrading the various helicopters to take on more missions, this will not disappoint. The military sims are enjoyable, and definitely challenging, but seem to hurry past the learning to fly and focus more on combat. There is a good mix of civilian, transport, and law enforcement/military missions which allow you to earn money and buy all the upgrades, there can be an issue if you sell a helicopter you need, so picking up extra missions is helpful. I would do often walk around inspections of each heli before taking on a mission to significantly lower the repair bill.

Realism:
Without a doubt, this is the most realistic feeling physics in a flight simulator I've played to date. With flight Simulator X I almost feel the helis were an afterthought addition because it lacks certain flight physics that require the constant adjustments required to keep the helicopters in flight. In Take On Helicopters, the wind and added weight of personnel and cargo changes how the helicopters fly, the copters accrue damage and can feel like a rickety bucket of bolts, giving an impending doom feeling before they ultimately reach maximum entropy and fall out of the sky. I had more than a few instances where I killed the Huey because I failed to properly finesse them through the trial without burying the throttle and burning out the engine.

Bugs:
Every simulator has it's glitches, I've seen more glitches in Flight Sim X than I have in TOH. Only one instance have I seen a glitch and pressed escape, then selected skip in the menu.

Two of us got this game to play CO-OP. Managed to get it working over the internet using a program called Tunngle which creates a virtual LAN connection over the internet. Easy once we did it this way. The game is quite good but does take some time to learn how to fly & land. The missions do take a long time to play but i guess thats because its a simulator not an arcade game.

Very good sim that is very rewarding once mastered. The missions offer a different spin from your typical combat sim with missions like whale watching transport and emergency lifts.

This game is fun to mess around with, but it's extremely hard to get control of the helicopter, and it's not well documented on how to do certain things. For some tutorials, you will be drilled to the last click, but for others, they give you a vague statement such as slowdown, and then you're on your own. A training system that went into detail into the tiny bits and pieces that make flying easier would have been nice, and as such I'm stuck forever trying to land a damn helicoper correctly.

So.... this game is hard to make a review.
I would recommend it to people that REALLY like making missions with a helicopter... its not like a Tycoon... but its got some of the aspects like buying new choppers and customizing them, but it doesnt feel like one at all. so scratch any tycoon feeling out of this game. this is a linear story game that just happens to let you customize and buy your choppers when you feel like. one BIG downside of this game is the character dialogs. they are incredibly boring and monotone, even the ones that you think should make mode of a impact, more feeling... anything! but it doesnt... its monotone and doesnt make you feel anything. the voice acting in this game is really bad.

Should you buy this game? only if you're a heli enthusiast and got the money laying there. many of the game features if not all are present in Arma II/III, a little browsing in the steam work shop with Arma III and you'll have more Heli mission content then present in this game, BUT, the MAP in this game is really good. and when I say good... i mean its HUGE... so theres a lot to see and do/redo... and even create, BUT, again... BUT, in Arma III you can import a lots of maps now and they have higher visual quality. The map in this game has very little detail in buildings... and roads, streets are not even present. they are part of the ground texture... if you're looking for decent graphics, this is not for you.
The missions and story are decent. but the voice acting takes off part of it.

To make it short.

Bad voice acting makes the game not as intriguing as it could be. recommended only if you're REALLY into helicopters and want everything out there.

Pros:

- Decent engine (Arma II) 9/10
- Decent story line / missions 7/10
- Map Size 10/10

Cons:

- Map detail is horrible 4/10 (excludings building density)
- Voice acting is laughable 2/10
- Lack of indepth helicopters courses to improve flight 4/10
- my bad english in this review.

Eigentlich ist das Spiel von der Idee her gut gelungen, auch vom Gameplay. Jedoch ist zu bemängeln, dass die Grafik auf einem leistungsfähigen Rechner trotz hoher Einstellungen sehr matschig und die Bodentexturen sehr unscharf sind. Außerdem kommt es auf hohen Grafiksettings häufig zu "Rucklern" und oft mangelt es an FPS. Wenn man das Spiel, so wie ich beim Humble Bundle geholt hat, bekommt man einen sehr spaßigen, aber nicht unbedingt gut aussehenden Spielspaß.

Nachdem mühevoll Download von 15 Gigabyte (die nicht mal im geringsten gerechtfertigt sind) hatte ich Probleme es zu starten. Es begann damit dass ich einen Doppelklick auf das Spiel gemacht habe und auf spielen drücken wollte jedoch stürzte es ohne Grund ab und startete nach cirka 10 Sekunden erneut worauf ich es endlich in der vollen Pracht "genießen"konnte.Ich habe in einem Spiel noch nie so eine schlechte Story miterlebt In der Die dramatische Wendung bereits in der ersten Mission stattfindet da der Bruder in dieser verstirbt .Eine zweite Sache die Ich nicht verstehe ist eine Shooter ähnliche Passage in der Wriklich auch geschossen werden muss um sich zu verteidigen und Ich verstehe echt nicht was eine Shooter Passage in einer Flugsimulation zu suchen hat. Die Animationen sind einfach nur schrecklich. Und aufploppende Bäume sind auch keine seltenheit. Größtenteils besteht das Spiel daraus dass man die Taste "W" durchzudrücken, Ich verstehe nicht warum man nicht vielleicht ein Paar Kurven fliegen muss ich habe nämlich das Gefühl dass ich auch ein Stück Stein oder ähnliches auf die Tastatur legen könnte und das gleiche Spielgefühl hätte. Außerdem ist die Peformance dieses Richtiger Müll Ich hatte dieses Spiel auf den niedrigsten Grafikeinstellungen trotzdem hat es geruckelt obwohl ich einen Mittelklasse PC habe. Kommt es nur mir so vor oder bin Ich den einzige der denkt dass die Texte alle vom gleichen Sprecher sind. Wäre es in der Steam Greenlight verfügbar gewesen hätte meinen Meinung nach keiner dafür gestimmt hätte und es als Free2Play Spiel geendet wäre es sich jedoch unter diesen Umständen trotzdem keinen gekauft hätte da die 15 Gigabyte nicht gerechtfertigt sind. Eine weitere Sache war dass sich keiner ohne das gesamte Tutorial ausgekannt hätte und vielleicht auch nicht mit Tutorial. Ein andere Sache ist dass ich eine Spielzeit von 2 Stunden hatte aber jedoch einen Fehler in dem das Spiel sich aufgehängt hat und meine Spielzeit und mein Spielfortschritt gelöscht wurde. Mein Endfazit für das Spiel ist dass meine 15€ für dieses Spiel komplett verschwendet waren und ich sie lieber einen Obdachlosen gegeben hätte der damit sich eine Warme Mahlzeit hätte kaufen können. Außerdem verlange Ich dass der gekaufte Metascore neu berechnet wird oder eine Korrigierung durchgeführt werden soll. Außerdem würde ich mich über die Rückgabe des Spiels und erhalt der 15€ sehr freuen.
Meinen Meinung nach hat dieses Spiel einen Metascore der nicht höher als 40/100 ist verdient.

Also läuft auf meinem PC von 2009 mit 30 FPS auf Höchsten Grafik Einstellungen Flüssig (Texturen sehen trotzdem recht verwaschen aus :C

Also wer kein guten Rechner hat Finger weg aber wenn er Leistung bringt (300FPS in Portal2 ) dann kann man es mit maximal 30 FPS Spielen

video of me doing one of the extreme time trials in this game:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzOpNE7_YK0
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 awesome, but require you to have mastered the helicopter controls . They are probably the most intense and challenging races I have tried in any game, partly thanks to the additional vertical dimension - car racing games are so 2-dimensional by comparison (pun intended).

Contrary to what most say, the graphics look good and I get a decent 60 fps with only ocasional slowdowns to 40 fps (with an i5-4570 and overclocked GTX660). The Seattle environment is detailed and beautiful. I did have to carefully tweak the video settings though. My youtube video stutters a bit but that is just youtube, the game was smooth.

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 own this game quite a while, occasionally taking free flights in Seattle and i must admit - level of detail in envelopment is far beyond for any flight simulator game even today. There is probably thousand of different models for buildings, not only for landmark, but any major building have it's own model and detailed texturing. Those also all collision enabled, meaning you can crash or land on. Even trees are crashable 3D models. You can even land and get out of your bird and start playing ARMAII in Seattle. Or in normal ARMAII maps - if you own it in Steam.

I was so looking forward to start playing single player campaign, imagining limitless country of fun with all goodness above combining with full range of civil helicopter's activities, starting with simple taxi missions and ending with sling load operation and search-and-rescue mission using FLIR (thermal vision camera).

To my very disappointment there is - as we russians say - one spoon of ♥♥♥♥ in barrel of honey. And it's flying itself. I'm not IRL pilot so i can't explain things in the right worlds, but i own (and fly almost daily) DCS UH-1 and X-Plane 10 with some payware helos, so i guess i know that is right and that is wrong. And TKOH helicopters are behaves wrong. More of that - they all share same dynamics, just with different coefficients. For example all of them have same speed. It's not like i didn't notice that playing free flights, i just thought i could deal with slow response, overreacting titling and nonexistent transition on lightest bird in campaign.

Turns out what with adding more power by coefficients thing only becomes worse, so heaviest copter not only overreacting inputs (but still slow) but tends to get lift with smallest lateral movement and suddenly drop it then you manage to get steady. Combined with oversaturated (remember - we have add power) tendency for forward movement (you need a several degrees of back pitch to hold it in place) makes most docile and presumable easy to hover craft unmanageable. So on second container in 7th mission of campaign i ragequit.

Speaking of campaign - in 7 (+2 sidemissions) missions i did, there was only two civilian missions. Three if you count whale seeing mission, but single engine helo without emergency water landing equipment not sounds like civilian job for me here. And there is more of such nonsense. Why two-engine helicopters goes down after one failed? Yeah we have two turbine for fancier look. Why we need rope insertion on flat roof in heavy wind, especially after i perfectly landed before mission marker even appears.

Concluding, i wouldn't recommend this game to any flight sim enthusiast. Despite perfect envelopment flying itself is unbearably broken and won't be fixed because of 3rd party component BI have to rely here.

CAUTIOUS THUMBS UP: *THE FREE DEMO HAS VIRTUALLY THE SAME CONTENT AND ENTERTAINMENT VALUE*
I DO like it, but wouldn't buy it until you try the demo first.

But its saving grace is the "Reloaded" update in the full game which means you can fly around in maps from other BI games (Arma1, Arma2 chernarus, tavania etc), which makes it cool and worth the money (the demo can't run mods and addons)

Unless its in a Steam Sale I wouldn't recommend this as a standalone heli-sim when there are far better (and free) flight simulators out there with a lot more content.

But if you just want to chill out flying an easy helicopter around, the sound effects are ok, the missions are fairly simple and basic, but at the end of the day most people will have to leave the graphics on medium and probably just fly around a bit in free flight while they're waiting for dinner then put it down and forget about it for a while.
on a scale of 1 to 10 for being memorable: 4

TL:DR
Maybe I missed the point of this game - But it doesn't seem to have a unique selling point or do anything particularly well enough to make you come back to it very often

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

I don't really recommend this game to

1) people who consider themselves average helicopter pilots in arma 2/3 because the learning curve requrired in this game is much higher and you need a very good understanding of helicopter physics to jump into this game.

2) people who seek a high fidelity, ultra realistic helicopter flight simulation. VBS3.0 or DCS UH-1H Huey gives budding pilots a much better benchmark for those who want to see how helicopter perform in real life.

3) people who don't have joysticks/pedals/throttles/TRACK IR's- as soon as I jumped into the game, it just felt wrong trying to fly with a mouse and keyboard. Like with most sims nowadays, it's not so much the game, it's the hardware you use on the game. So consider trying the demo first with your current setup, and ugrade as neccessary if you feel the need to.

Hope this helped anyone.

Take on Helicopters is fairly accurate simulator for helicopters, although some aspects could use some improvement. But TOH also is a vehicle simulator. You can do dough-nuts in a Hummer if you like, or jump hills. It also models bullet trajectories pretty good. TOH is more than just a helicopter simulator. It is a gaming platform for player made missions. Single and multi-player.

Flying Helicopters in accurate flight models has a bit of a learning curve. This is what makes TOH good and bad. Good for hard-core simmers, bad for the kids that just want to shoot something. Career mode is just training to teach you to fly and get used to what the game offers. Player made missions is where the real action is. Well worth the money.
