Description of Gunship 2000
After the first Gunship, Microprose made a 2000 version with better graphics, deeper story and more gameplay possibilities. In Gunship 2K, you take control of an helicopter and have to fulfill war mission across the world.
Several different gunship are available, including the famous Commanche, and the player have to select for each mission, after the briefing, the weaponry he wants to use. Fuel management is also a part of the game and lifting off with full weapons was often impossible.
As the game and the player's rank progress, the mission are not made alone anymore, some friendly helicopter are under your order to complete the objectives.
Micropose was unable to made a serie out Gunship, the sequel release in 2000 was not good. The fans turned to Jane's Longbow as it was close in spirit to the original Gunship games.
Gunship 2000 has an addon available: Gunship 2000: Philippine Islands & Antarctica Scenario Disk With Mission Builder, don't miss it!

At last! Someone else actually noticed the glaringly obvious "briefing" crash! I was beginning to think I was the only one suffering this! The download from Abandonia.com is exactly the same, and even on their forums no-one seems to have any idea it crashes!
I mean - are these fools for real? Or is it just us two in the entire world having this issue?

And don't forget the Nicholas Cage film... Every single frame of that movie's briefing in this game!

If you avoid the briefing folder it will play, but it will hang up if you check the briefing for each mission.

Fantastic game. its a bit of a drag until you get your own squadron, but then the game really kicks in.
