Description of LHX: Attack Chopper

Well, this is a 1990 game sporting some really interesting concepts. Player of Su-25 Sthurmovik will feel right at home as the menu system is the same. The VGA graphics are nice, very clear, even though there's a little warping with polygonal terrain features. Sound support includes Sound Blaster, so it's not bad.

While this game's flight mode is hardly realistic, the game has one thing for it - its sheer fun. It's far better than the arcadish Comanche (by Novalogic). You can fly in a LHX (future helicopter) an Apache, a Blackhawk and an Osprey. All fly differently, being the LHX a nifty little bugger, very fast and agile, as well as armed to the back teeth, the Apache being slower and tougher, but even better armed (even though it sports an analog cockpit), the Blackhawk being a workhorse, but an armed one, as well as tough to crack as a nut, and really necessary for the rescue and supply missions, and the Osprey, an aircraft-helicopter hybrid (now in service) that takes off like a chopper and then flies like an aircraft.

Weapons are varied, and there's great fun to be had by steering TOW missiles right down the enemy's throat. Speaking of which, the enemy aren't too dumb. Missiles and AAA will engage you ASAP, and so will tanks. While enemy helicopters won't pose much of a danger (unless they are Havocs or Hokums), enemy jets will. Missions are very varied, ranging from armed recon to deep strike, escort, extraction/deployment, etc.

This is a game that EVERYONE with a even passive interest in helicopters must have.

Man for the time the game was really great I loved taking the OSPREY into the P.O.W camp and lighting it up. That game was on par with anything Microprose had out at the time and the graphics were really good for the time.

I guess there are aged people here who have played this significant game. The LHX and F117A are my top favorate simulations at the DOS age. Happy memories for everyone :)

Love this game. When I was little I barely figured out the controls or what to actually do (english is not my native language). Nowadays do know but especially on high difficulty it sometimes makes me want to punch my screen. I still wonder if it's possible to circumvent a significant amount of enemy vehicles. Otherwise you run out of ammo quickly. Flying on a low altitude oftentimes doesn't help that much.

One of my all time favorites, even on CGA with the cyan and magenta. The intro screen alone was a showpiece.

It works on my computer for a change, and it seems like it would be a really cool game, but I think you might enjoy it with a joystick more.

lovely 3D first person 3D action which I played on an monochrome monitor together with a partner (one to fly, one to shoot)

The rudimentary ingame sound I will never forget,
tic - tic - tic - tic - tic
