After playing too much LA Noire I wanted something new, a game that I normally don’t play and I chose Apache: Air ****. I am still up in the air about most of this game it seems to be a mild OK for me but it does have its moments that drive me wild with frustration.
It seems you can’t get enough altitude to hover over your targets although I am still playing in training mode while I get use to flying these choppers then I will switch over to Realistic mode where I am sure my altitude issue will not be there.
Graphics I really have no rebuttal because I don’t have an HD TV therefore, I have little to comment on graphics.
The game play well I believe this games choppers could use a bit more stability mode when flying those birds. They do seem to be a bit hairy to handle they may have better handling mode if I used a flight joy stick but right now controller is my weapon.
I do like the weapon modes ever since I experienced the C-130 in COD it felt cool to waste those white dots on the ground as it does in this game of Apache. It seems when using the hover mode your bird seems to handle like a brick and you’re a bit out of enemy view until you get out of hover mode. Then, you choice your cockpit mode and before you now it you’re heading into the ground. Flying these choppers in the game takes allot of time getting use to I guess the best method is keep flying to get better. Then you have radio communications totally out of flight sink meaning while the radio chatters comes over your flight movements are totally out of sink before you are told to fire on your targets you already been under fire and have unloaded all your heat seeking missiles, what gives; I haven’t a clue.
Achievements are easy to collect and there are some you will have difficulty on even if they were handed out by girl Scotts. Some Achievements popped open while I was flaming into the ground see what I mean. Anyway, I don’t think this game is worth $40.00 bucks you might want to rent the game just for the achievements otherwise, the game could be made much better.
