    I've seen this and have to say don't like it. It suffers from the same "view" problem as their GT Racer game, in that the heli is pretty much static in the center of the screen and the 3D scenery moves around. While this works for top down views, in 3-D view it isn't so good. OK, the heli does tip it's nose up and down a bit but turning left/right is very odd. Also, when you come across differences in altitude, the heli's flight path is too "blocky" for want of another way of describing it. The stick control only controls height relative to ground, a sort of auto height control, for effectively landing and taking off, not really for flight over terrain. Dialogues pop up not quite in context, like "Land here" when you're still miles from the LZ. Speaking of landing, because of the view you have, landing on ships can be quite tricky.

    Other than that it's not a bad shooter, with a reasonable amount of tasks to complete (shoot tanks, other helis, buildings, ships, all of which are firing at you. Oh, and there is very little notice of damage to your heli, other than obviously the damage guage, ie no smoke or limited controls. One min you're up, the next you're down), just not polished enough to warrant the cost.

    I have to agree with you on this. Its pretty fun for me so far, I enjoy it when I play. They just need to come down on the price until they update it.
