Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

What do these ratings mean?

TEAM  APACHE was definitely one of my favorite games from Windows 95.

The controls made the game...they were scaled down considerably to make the game accessible to people with different equipment.  At the time, I had a Microsoft Sidewinder with force feedback.  The force Feedback helped you to "feel" the wobbling resistance of the rotors  and did an excellent job creating tension feel.  Of course, my favorite factor was being able to "feel" missiles  come off the rails and machine gun rounds leave the barrel.

Unless you have a pair of flight sim rudder pedals, or a joystick which allowed you to twist it, YAW action felt a little sloppy.  It also became slightly problematic to land the helicopter unless you had a good joystick/throttle/pedal system.  Less than perfect landings usually meant a destroyed aircraft.

One of the silly aspects of the game was that you had to complete missions to earn points to repair the aircraft. WRONG:  reapirs come from tax payer money and there is no shortage of that !

As for enemies, having to engage tanks and other helicopters felt realistic, but the graphics of the time made foot soldiers look like little block men with only 2 points of articulation - their arms and legs. The little guys were also wayyyy out of scale with everything else around them.

OVERALL, it was a great game, fun and offered alot to the budding flight sim player.
