HELI HEROES updates the old-school "shoot'em up" arcade machine games to new dimensions on today's PCs. You command an AH-64 Apache Longbow or a Russian Hokum helicopter. The goal is to fly through various levels and carry out the mission objectives. During the missions you will find different types of weapons and additional offensive and defensive systems. The game's look and feel is made up of a 3D landscape that you fly your helicopter over, through and into. The mix of reality and Sci-Fi missions vary from destroying Iraqi oilfields up to fighting against the "Big Boss" enemies in Alaska.
It all started, not with a bang, but with a whimper…
Revolution Now, the most formidable terrorist group in existence, is on the brink of creating a new world order. Your challenge, if you are crazy enough to accept, is to defeat them at all costs.

Heli Heroes is an interesting game when it comes to two players gameplay because it introduces the cooperation elements and some kind of rivalry of who gets more points. Someone who wants to play it himself will rather have an average experience. Heli Heroes is certainly not an outstanding game, but it can not be called bad either! If you have a friend nearby and don't have much cash perhaps you will like it.
This game isn't "AAA" production or even "A", but it's a fine game. But i recommend to play Heli Heroes with brother, sister, friend, or someone else, because only in co-op you can really enjoy it. Still it's pretty nice shooter.
Heli heroes is a top down shooter similar to arcade shooters like 1942, rather than games like Desert Strike and Nuclear Strike to which it may look similar on screenshots. As it stands Heli Heroes is not a bad game but not quite up to the standard of its console competition. Graphics and sound are respectable given its age and it runs great even on very old machines, plus it has some of the strongest mission briefing voice overs I have ever heard. I recommend you look into the other top down shooters available before taking a ride on this chopper, as there are many better ones available, but it's certainly not the worst one you can pick.
