Apache Longbow Assault is a game that doesn’t do too much, but what it does, it does well.
Military helicopter sims are a rarity on the PC nowadays, so it’s rewarding to see a game like Apache Longbow Assault come along. It gracefully steers the fine line between serious sim and all-out action game and features some attractive visuals and immersive sound effects. While Apache Longbow Assault suffers from a no-frills campaign and a lack of other game modes, it still offers plenty of exciting combat while letting you fly one of the most powerful helicopters yet built.
Bland text briefings don’t do much to immerse you in the campaign.
Apache Longbow Assault puts you in the ~censored~ of the US Army’s famed Apache attack helicopter, in this case the advanced AH-64D Longbow variant. The Longbow significantly improves on the radar/fire control system, weaponry, and survivability of the original Apache to create an even more lethal helicopter. The Longbow is fast, highly maneuverable, heavily armored, and bristling with advanced weapons.
