Hollywood i see u a lot on the Falcon4 forum, if u like Falcon4 then CH is for u( im also a Falcon junkie).
Features Dynamic Camapign , Very stable bug free.
Great Atmosphere, clean and powerfull interface, great (fantastic) attention to detail.
You take an active part in the ongoing war, do u decide to help take out that airfield so your own forces can use it later etc.
Intergration with Apache Havoc ( which is on budget) means you get 4 different helicopters, 6 campaigns, each campaign can be flown from either side.
Carrier take off which full flight decks, also airfields with tons of helicopters, jets on the ground, taking off ready to strafe .
Attention to detail again,
Dynamic weather system which moves thru map, includes rain ( your helicopter has windscreen wipers, or an air jet for the commanche , thats flash ) , snow, thunderstorms, wind. Sunsets that have to be seen.
the best view system ever, easy to find each unit, by type, local, side etc. Watch C17 do supply drops which are important for bases, watch Blackhawks insert troops to take over bases, tanks battle it out, the list goes on.
I guess this means u should get it.

Used to play mostly F2 until I ordered a copy of F4 (kind of late in March 2000). Love playing within a campaign, and fly F4 for the most part now.

Never bought a helo sim myslef. But just last week I picked up a copy of EECH. Have not had much stick time in it yet (been busy trying F4 with RP2)...but it seems pretty much like a helo version of F4.

Would recommend that you buy it.

I'm also a F4 phreak but I've become totally sold on this sim since I've been getting into it. I used to fly LongbowII but this is way better in just about every department.

There's a hell of alot of immersion, the graphics are killer and it's COMPLETE (ie, no real bugs)! What a concept.

Do not hesitate to buy this sim. It's destined to become a classic once it gets here in volume.

EECH converted me from fast jets to choppers! I's rate it as:

Avionics modelling: 9.5
Graphics: 9
Sound: 9
Realism: 9-->10
Fun: 1000000 at least!
Stability: 8, even on my horrible K6-2 system. 10 on every other system ibn the entire universe.

I would not hesitate in recommending EECH to anyone. You could check out Team Alligator as well, but it's not as good. Forget Gunship- it's a pointless arcade game.

Cheers, Wulfrick.

Make sure the enemy is willing to die for his country. Then you both have the same aim in mind!

You should buy! I foresee becoming an exclusive helo-head myself, possibly.

The comparisons to F4 are somewhat misleading (except in the sense that they are both excellent flightsims featuring a dynamic campaign) in that EECH is not as detail-oriented in terms of avionics and whatnot. However, the game strikes such a perfect balance of abstraction and realism, from graphics and avionics to weapons performance and campaign dynamics, that the subjective realism is enhanced...and the fun factor is off the scale. It is a truly great game, and almost completely bug-free and stable.

I generally don't get into campaigns (even F4s'). The lack of a decent campaign in F2 didn't bother me. However, I find myself flying campaign exclusively in EECH...a mini-war, a random mission generator, an opportunity to see all sorts of weird stuff - it's a fantastic campaign engine. The only problem is that too many medals are awarded. Typical debriefing: "Although the mission was a success, your reputation will be tarnished by that unfortunate friendly fire incident. We are delighted to present you with the Order of Lenin."
