Is A-H with C-H like Longbow1 with Longbow2. I mean LB1 and LB2 are quite far apart in terms of graphics. Does A-H look good as C-H in graphics or is it dated??

I think its worth getting (If you can find it) since the apache and Havoc import into CH. I dont have CH yet, but should be getting my order any day now. AH has very good graphics in my opinion, however the cockpits are limited to 640 *480, buts thats only when played without CH. I think CH has made some improvements to the graphic engine but as a whole from the screen shoots Ive seen they are very simullar. Thats not to say the graphics are bad. I think AH was ahead of its time. Although there have been prettier scenery in other products. the terrian is very good for simulating helicopter combat. When you get CH you will probably never play AH again by itself since the campains and aircraft import into CH so well.

Only get it if you want 6 campaigns instead of 3, and 4 helo's to fly instead of 2. Hhhmmmm, 6 fully dynamic campaigns, and 4 superbly rendered helo's. I think the answer to your question is resoundingly yes.

(Sorry for the sarcasm)

Plus scalable cockpits for the Apache and the Havoc, and the improvements in the AI and campaign engine applied to the original AH campaigns

It looks just as good.
In higher res. the Apache/Havoc cockpits become a bit fuzzy when playing through Comanche hokum. But that's the only graphics issue when combining these games.
But besides that, you get the Apache and the Havoc! (isn't that reason enough?)

Probably only a matter of time before someone creates higher resolution cockpits for A/H.

Yes - get it. It looks very good and is a lot of fun to play (great campaigns). I picked it up 2 weeks ago in the bargain bin at EB for $17 Canadian (about $12 US). It will help me get through the wait until CH gets to Canada.
