After being sorely disappointed by the helicopter combat of Apache Air Assault last year, it's nice to see there's still some hope for the well-armed whirlybird enthusiast in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

One thing becomes crystal clear while watching this video: This is not a realistic helicopter simulation. Apaches do not roll like that at low speeds. Not unless there's electric guitar music in the background.

Not that I'm complaining. If I wanted realism I'd have become a pilot. I just want to shoot things while hovering. Looks like Assault Horizon has me covered.
