Realistic flight simulator with the Apache Longbow helicopter
The love that the gaming industry has had for the Apache helicopters is nothing short of spectacular. The Apache has been featured in games ever since the 80s where games such as Apache 3 managed to create the forward scrolling sprite realism that was top of the line during that period. But, compared to Jane's Combat Simulations: AH-64D Longbow, it was of course very dated. So, what was so spectacular about these helicopters? Well, they inspired gamers and game developers for a number of reasons, but one of the most important was their flexibility and amount of different scenarios in which they could prove useful. The Ah-64D Longbow proves this once again, as the game features a wide selection of scenarios, pitting you against a large number of challenges. You will get on board rescue mission, missions to bomb, missions to engage with other air bound machinery and so on. Thus, diversity is at the core of this game's offerings. Also, the graphics are really good, on par or better than the Comanche series from Novalogic.
