combat flight sim with impressive graphics
The sequel to Thunderhawk has the same premise as the original. You are a highly skilled pilot of fighter helicopters tasked with accomplishing a host of dangerous missions that will test you and your aircraft to the limits. The game is a sim with arcade elements. Thus, the control is never frustrating and won't put you in a position where a dedicated joystick will be necessary. However, without it the game can feel a bit too hard to control. Among the features of the game you also get the opportunity to customize your helicopter. You get many different weapons, rockets, heat activated missiles, cluster bombs and also different fire guns. It is vital for the success of each mission that you pick the right combination of weapons; otherwise you won't be able to fulfill your tasks properly.The best feature about the game is that the graphics look very sharp. The landscape is particularly crisp, with relatively long distances being drawn. While it sure doesn't rival modern flight sims, the game stills packs a good punch when it comes to looking cutting edge, so you won't feel like you're wasting your time. In some respects the graphics are even better than those of the Comanche Series so you won't be disappointed.
