I ordered C/H from Empire the other day and recieved a reply in e-mail today " thank you for your order for Enemy Engaged, but unfortunately we are
currently unable to export this game to the USA until distribution rights
have been arranged.

We will hold onto your order and contact you again as soon as the
situation has been resolved.

Many thanks for your patience.

Yours Sincerely
Claire O'Gorman - Empire Customer Services"

I usually wait for it to come out at the local stores. But after reading the posts here I decided to order it from across the pond. Bummer.....

CAVALRY "OUT FRONT!!!!!!"

I just ordered mine on Monday, and I received a confirmation telling me that the order is being processed. They must have recently changed? Bummer.

Why isn't the game being released in USA 'til July? Normally it's us Europeans who have to wait while a game is released in the States first.

Part of the reason I think is that they are "creating a need" market. Allowing the word to spread and creating an expectancy will result in higher sales when it debuts in N.America.
Iam sure there are other contributing factors but hype induced sales is a big one.
Although with this sim the end might justify the hype.
Hope so!!

I ordered the game last Friday from Empire and got an email saying my order would be processed. I hope I got it in just under the cut off. (when ever that was). I sent them another email asking if my order will still be sent if it wasnt already.
I cant wait until July! Its not fair!

Dude. That stinks.

I'm glad I ponied up for the game when I did. It is worth it. Even with the GEforce Comanche intermittent texture corruption.

Which doesn't affect Russki choppers. Which, oddly, are ALL I CAN FLY AND FIGHT CONSISTENTLY!! Made Captain in my third mission in a Ka-52. Two Red Banners, an Order of Lenin, and a Gold Star (the last won when my Weapons Free wingmen inadvertently got medieval on two Perry-class frigates and a Tarawa class transport). In the Comanche, I've managed to get killed twice by about ten thousand SAMs, whack a friendly Apache who wandered into my line of fire, crashland while backpedaling once and fail one mission while racking up one Air Medal and two Purple Hearts.

Something tells me I was meant to fly for the Reds.

Miao, Cat

Oh great. There's 3 new helo sim released, and the one I decided to get (mainly based on previous experience with Apache/Havoc) is delayed coming to the US. Oh well...

Now among the remaining two, which one should I get?

After reading about the fact that they are not shipping to the US anymore, I sent then an email asking if my order (placed last Friday) would still go out. I got a response this morning from them stating my order just squeezed out in time and is already in the mail. Very fast service, I must say. I thing april 10th was the cutoff. I would think if you ordered it over the weekend, you should be ok.
