Acerca de este juego

Te presentamos el nuevo juego de helicópteros del desarrollador independiente Bohemia Interactive, creador de la premiada saga de simulación militar ArmA 2. Cimentado sobre más de 10 años de experiencia en el desarrollo de simuladores de máxima calidad, Take On Helicopters sumerge a los jugadores en ricos y bonitos paisajes y ofrece un modelo de vuelo auténtico.
El jugador asume el rol de un piloto de helicópteros civil. El negocio de aviación de Harry Larkin atraviesa tiempos difíciles, y tras décadas de duro sacrificio hasta convertirse en lo que es, ahora se encuentra a unos días de su clausura. Sus hijos encaran un futuro incierto, luchando para salvar la compañía a la que su padre dedicó toda su vida. Juntos, deberán enfrentarse a contratos y competidores; ¡juntos, deberán encargarse de los helicópteros!
Lleva a cabo tus primeros pasos para dominar el vuelo de rotor a través de un amplio abanico de entretenidos desafíos o crea tus propias misiones usando el potente pero amigable editor de misiones.
Surca los cielos en dos bonitos y amplios escenarios, basados en datos reales de terreno en Norteamérica y Sudasia.

Arma 2: Wasteland veteran here. My favourite thing to do in Wasteland was fly the little bird around, but dodging surface to air missiles became a nuisance.

I had been looking at Take On Helicopters for months but couldn't justify the price. However, buying it on sale was perfect.

Flying has been redone since ARMA 2 and it is for the better. I really enjoy leisurely flights around Seattle in my light helicopter.

I would recommend this game to any helicopter enthusiasts.

Good tuse of Arma Engine.. works great till you get to the crash landing safely skit.. even though you land.. thats not enough..(and no save point and that is supposed to be the accomplishment) you are then arma2 on the ground with little weapons. and somehow surrounded no matter where you land.. this part took the game to a "I don't use the scenario anymore" level
it would have been better sticking to the air game it was supposed to be.
5/5 stars for air game 1/5 star for ground usage..

Bit of a cautious thumbs up, I got this game really cheap in a bundle quite some time ago. Played for a few mins, had awful performance issues and the controls were abysmal on a 360 pad...

Fast forward a little while and I bought a HOTAS stick and throttle along with a better graphics card. The difference was astounding. There was still another little issue though - using the hat switch for headlook is horrible. Fast forward a little more time and I got my hands on an EDtracker head tracking device. This was the final piece of the puzzle! With reliable head tracking and a half decent stick setup the game really begins to shine and also opened my eyes to a much more immersive experience in Arma 2/ Day Z mod.

Anybody familiar with BI games knows what to expect, a diamond with little bits of ♥♥♥♥ on it :D TOH is no exception, god awful voice acting and the usual performance issues on lower end hardware but with a little forum scouring you can maximize the experience you will have with a bit of tinkering.

*For anyone using high DPI settings in windows you will have end up with the missing mouse pointer bug. THIS is what completely did my head in with the game for a looong time, persevering with the methods needed to do any menu clicking (like starting a damn game session) especially graphics setup was a royal pain in the ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥. I found the solution to this from a completely different game but the solution works here also. Turn your DPI from 150 to 149 and your mouse will magically reappear :)

This is not "brand new" in any way. It's just the arma2 engine with almost all aircraft removed and some of them now sold back at half the game price each. It's like they're mocking us. Such dishonest advertising is immoral.

+ Helpful basic flight instruments at the bottom of the screen
+ The one big-ish heli they saved is a good looking one.
+ Felt really good to beat the task "Ride as passenger".
+ Nice screenshot potential from the engine being made for ground battles and processor torture and implement more detail than a copy-paste of google earth.
- The AI shows how jerky the flying is, and this constant state of parkinsons is even more apparent when you get out of the helicopter in the first mission and have motion sickness by the third step, while the heli you just got out of crashes into the water.
- EVEN dodgier physics than arma2 (the one thing they should have put in some effort to fix)
- If you have the hardware to make this game half playable you are way out of it's leauge and wouldn't even consider it.
-The way the collective works is just... Hold half a second too long and it won't even move, hold a second too long and overtorque is likely. Had vortex ring state conditions been possible then this game would have been a nightmare.
- In real life a slight push of either pedal wouldn't generate turn sufficient to sever the tail boom.
- Every other mechanic that makes flying annoying in arma2 is still there (Especially camera control)
- The music and ATC 'things' are just bat ♥♥♥♥. All genres awkwardly out of place. ATC only mean the random unreadable radio chatter like that which you usually can't turn off in flight sims with an actual game engine for it. Yes, they had to ad that. Also, like arma, every single radio transmission is a 2/5 at best and sound like they're on the LF band.

If this was a community mod I'd think it was cute, but it's not and not.
I went in with hopes of a refined game focusing on helicopters, but was disappointed since it is completely based on an (basically unchanged) ancillary game mechanic from a complete game.

Final score: God damn it

·Después de leer algunos análisis de este juego y posteriormente pasarme el modo historia y hacer unos cuantos vuelos libres, e aquí mi análisis;
Es un juego en el que hay que tener ¡mucha! paciencia. El punto de ser un simulador siempre ha de tenerse en cuenta, y esto implica a ser muy pacientes y tener iniciativa a la hora de aprender y poner en práctica las cosas.
Dado que usa prácticamente el mismo motor que los juegos de 'Arma' me parece un juego bastante entretenido al fin y al cabo tiene los mismos movimientos y sistemas que este, el inconveniente que veo en el juego es lo que llega a 'pesar' a la hora de la instalación, pero por lo demás lo dicho, ponerle muchas ganas e interés para poner en práctica lo que vas aprendiendo.

En cuanto a la historia: *No spoiler* Una historia , que no dice mucho, pero que dandome cuenta al fin y al cabo, gracias a esto realizas un montón de actividades, maniobras..etc. que resulta ser bastante entretenido. A mi gusto , bastante corta la historia y eso que lo he jugado escuchando detenidamente todos los diálogos.

En cuanto al multijugador: Una pena, y es lo otro que veo de inconveniente, el único y gran problema de este apartado de juego es que 'GameSpy' (la empresa que llevaBA el multijugador en prácticamente los juegos de Bohemia) haya cerrado, esto implica a que haya que buscar bastantes otras alternativas para jugar con tus amigos.

Dirigiendome más al lector: Sinceramente, te recomiendo el juego, eso sí, tienes que estar INTERESADO y tener INICIATIVA para aprender cosas y esforzarte para comprender todos los procedimientos, al fin y al cabo esto es un SIMULADOR, que ni es un juego de helicopteros 'Facil' ni un juego "rápido" de pasar.

La verdad, que ami que me gusta el mundo del vuelo, he de admitir que me ha gustado bastante (salvo los inconvenientes mencionados).

¿¡ Pero qué infesto excremento de macaco sifilítico es esto !?

Para los checos de "Bohemia Interactive", pilotar helicópteros, ya sean comerciales o de combate, debe ser muy divertido gracias a los porros de Avecrem que se fuman, pero la realidad dista bastante de sus fantasías.

Porque, chaval, si no tienes licencia de piloto, los tutoriales de este juego se te harán insufribles. Que si el cíclico, que si el colectivo, que si el estárter, que si mira la batería, que si mira las cervezas de la nevera, que si están infladas las ruedas, etcétera. Lo que vendría a ser el trabajo del mecánico de los c0jones.

Una vez sentado y a los mandos de uno de estos cacharros, te faltarán tres o cuatro teclados y dos o tres joysticks para saber cómo narices se enciende el motor. Para qué te va a indicar el tutorial las teclas que tienes que pulsar, ¿verdad? O peor aún, que te lo indique, porque te bombardeará con toneladas de texto. Y lo que es aún más grave, ¿para qué quieres iniciar el vuelo con tu helicóptero cuando los escenarios que vas a contemplar carecen del más mínimo esfuerzo por parte de los diseñadores?

Porque esa es otra. Escenarios que aparecen a trompicones, texturas que cargan sobre la marcha, sombras que aparecen y desaparecen, suelo borroso (creerás que sufres miopía) o un framerate inestable y bajo a pesar de tener un ordenador que supera con creces lo recomendado, son algunas de las lindezas ideadas por los chicos de "Bohemia". De hecho, tu CPU y la GPU pueden morir por achicharramiento dada la mala optimización del juego. ¿Es que se han vuelto tontos esta gente?

Y ello por no olvidar las insufribles cargas (lentas, estáticas, traídas de la época de la PSX) y unos controles que, por momentos, pensarás que han sido programados para hacerte perder los nervios.

Con respecto al apartado sonoro, y dado el poco tiempo que le he dedicado, no puedo decir nada especial. Lo poco que he escuchado me ha parecido paupérrimo, sin chicha ni manteca por ninguna parte.

El juego tiene las voces en inglés, las cuales agradezco que no hayan sido dobladas al español, ya que, para escuchar la historia de mi3rda que nos endosan, casi que es mejor no enterarse. Como lo hagas, preferirás taladrarte el oído con un torno de dentista. Porque, ¿qué tipo de argumento es ese en el que un payaso de chichinabo tiene que heredar una empresa de helicópteros porque el lerdo de su hermano va y se estrella delante suya? Todo ello relatado mediante una intro aburrida, petarda y que da motivos para buscar el menú y salir del juego.

Mira, vamos a ser sinceros: si te gustan los simuladores de helicópteros, sácate una licencia de verdad, paga por ella y cómprate un helicóptero. De los de verdad. Pero no juegues a esta 1mbecilidad programada por gente de Europa del Este a quienes debiésemos cerrar las fronteras por su alto grado de cretin3z suprema.

Lo que tienes entre manos no es un simulador de helicópteros. Tampoco es un simulador para estrellar helicópteros. Es una cosa rara que han hecho tirando de un motor gráfico ya existente y que no parece gustar a nadie.

Señores de "Bohemia", si hubiese pagado por esta aberración, ya estaría exigiendo el reembolso de mi dinero (Steam da esa opción si se cumplen condiciones, por lo que no sé a qué esperáis para hacer uso de ella). Más aún, estaría exigiendo una indemnización por daños y perjuicios, porque menudo daño y menudo perjuicio que provocáis en la mente de los compradores tras descubrir que este bodrio... ¡¡ ocupa 17 GB de disco duro !! De hecho, pediría una indemnización por cómo me habéis hecho perder el tiempo.

La OMS debería incluir este juego entre las enfermedades profesionales reconocidas, para que así ningún betatester de este juego tenga que quedarse sin pensión de invalidez cuando decida sacarse los sesos por la nariz con la punta de un cuchillo.

Si tienes algún enemigo, regálale este truño. Yo lo hice ^^

Ni caso a las criticas, tanto si te gustan los Arma y los tienes, como si te gusta la simulacion aerera y militar, o simplemente te gustan los "juegos de aviones", o pilotar al estilo "arcade" de los Arma, este simu es una pauesta segura con toneladas de horas de cosas por hacer, NO SOLO A BORDO DE LOS HELICOPTEROS, como digo, es basicamente un Arma centrado en HElis con misiones especialea dedicadas a ellos pero tambien buena parte de lo demas. De hecho si posees Arma 2 y/o sus expansiones, dentro del simu te aparecen como expansiones propias del Take on, pudiendo volar en Chernarus, Takistan, etc.

Para los iluminados y snobs que confunden la simulacion aerea con la vida real, deberian recordar antes de criticar que Bohemia es una empresa fundamentalmente dedicada a la SIMULACION MILITAR PROFESIONAL. Que dediquen un ratito a google, a enterarse un poco antes de soltar cualquier opinion basada en sus limitaciones o capacidades o creencias subjetivas. Pensar que Bohemia no es capaz de dotar al simu de unas fisicas "creibles" y "adecuadas", es un poco chorra, cuando esta gente vende a los mayores ejercitos del mundo simuladores que cuestan decenas de miles de dolares, y sus "juegos de PC", solo son para ellos una fuente de ingresos extra, algo que se hace casi "por hobby".

Luego ni caso a las criticas, es un producto que merece MUCHO la pena, si te gusta la tematica. Muy recomendable tener un Joy, uno normalito, que hay quien confunde precio con "nivel", pero tampoco es necesario ya que en sus niveles de simulacion mas arcade se deja manejar tal cual los Helis de Arma, con el pad de xbox o a teclado y raton puramente.
Sobre todo al precio que ha estado ultimamente es una compra segura, su apartado tecnico es mas que correcto con los settings al maximo, y está bastante bien optimizado, aunque hay que recortar la distancia de dibujado porque por defecto viene exageradamente alta y eso provoca un rendimiento negativo.

10/10 para un producto bueno, bonito, barato y muy completo.

MALÍSIMO CON GANAS, si os gustan los simuladores de vuelo simplemente pasad de esta real ♥♥♥♥♥♥, comprad FSX o prepar3Dv2, y compraros addons de helicopteros de NEMETH DESIGNS, MILVIZ, AEROSOFT o STARGATE STUDIOS, esta real ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me la compré por 4,00 euros que si no se queda donde esta, definitivamente otro fracaso de BOHEMIA INTERACTIVE, repito si os gustan los SIM de vuelo... ya sea aviación o en este caso en concreto aeronaves de rotor, es decir helicopteros: FSX o prepar3Dv2,simple, la física es malísima de cojones y juego con pedales, joystick, y throttle, los gráficos realmente una ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥♥♥, ni os molesteis en gastar 4,00 euros, mejor gastadlo con la novia que almenos os dará placer.

Los simmers y me incluyo a mi que llevamos en los simuladores de vuelo mucho tiempo creo que me darán la razón

Y quien me venga diciendo que esto es un simulador jugando con mando de consola...me parece que esta muy equivocado.

P.D: BOHEMIA INTERACTIVE, si lo leeis, que lo dudo.... empezad a gastaros el dinero en hacer productos con realismo y licencias, y no fabriqueis productos para ganar dinero, de lo contrario perdereis más dinero y clientes.

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 if you have some other Bohemia Interactive Military Sims already (the demo can't run mods and add-ons)

Unless its in a Steam Sale I wouldn't recommend this as a heli-sim by itself 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.

Definitely the most relaxing flight simulator I've played. It's very good to play while trying to chill out. Joystick highly recommended, as is a TrackIR or FreeTrack (or Oculus Rift hopefully one day), so that you can sit back and enjoy what helicopters do best: cruise.

The Armed Assault engine makes the helicopters fun to control without overly complex controls, and the skill envelope is just high enough to make it a fun game. Bohemia Interactive surprised me with this one.

The campaign is fun, too. Mechanic mode minigame that saves your company money, while immersing you in a small-business feeling. Every mission really adds to that feeling, as well.

4 / 5

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.

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.

I have to make this fairly simple and straight forward instead of a lengthy review.
Overall, positive head nod to Bohemia Interactive in this now aging title as in the words of Monty Python, "and now for something completely different".

IMPORTANT Point:
I predominantly have played this game "offline" as Steam does not detect the game activation if you modify some of the game files and I bypass the standard Steam startup, which I did so in order to ramp up the difficulty to give the flight modeling a much more realistic feel and activated the ArMA 2 modules I WANT TO RUN.
I have easily logged 300+ hours on this game.

Key Points:

1) If you are looking for a hardcore "simulation" this is NOT your game.
2) If you are looking for a "light" simulation game with PASSABLE aerodynamics physics for the starting helos this works.(but NOT the medium and heavy helicopters who FMs are skewed),
3) If you have ever wanted to fly over the Pacific Northwest and Puget Sound with a helicopter, you will like this game immensely, the modeling and collison detect is better than most modern flight simulations.
4) If you are interested in learning about the basic functionality of helicopters without flight manual complication, this is YOUR game.

Bottom line, the game itself is entertaining, the plot is a little "tired" but still fun.
The Seattle map region is EXCELLENT, with all the actual landmarks noted.
However, if you want to run this game REALLY well, you are going to need a beast of a gaming system, and not because the game is overly "complex".
The ArmA 2 game engine just was never that well optimized for this kind of "simulation" and the overall graphics close to the ground can really get ugly, and SO WISH the engine had been optimized because the modeling and collision detection is GOOD.

Never was flying a "little bird" over Seattle so much of a small guilty pleasure, especially for cheap the game is now with all the DLC packs.
You are going to need a flight control system in order to get the most out of the game.
In a pinch, you can use a Xbox 360 controller, but that unprecise when playing at difficulties at veteran and above.

Fun helicopter simulator that is based of the Arma 2 engine, plays exaclty like it too. But unlike Arma 2 it goes more in depth with the controls. Learning curve is not to bad compared to other sim games like A-10.
