I've had an interest in the military for quite some time, so I've
been waiting for a good military action game to come out for the
N64. When Chopper Attack came out, it looked pretty good but I
shouldn't of judged it by its cover.
Graphics 6 out of 10
I guess you could say that the graphics for Chopper Attack are so-so.
The choppers look OK and so do the tanks and trucks, but the soldiers
and the buildings in each level could of been MUCH better. It feels like
you're in a huge pre-set arena and everything's fake. One reason why is
the fact that instead of the system automatically turning you around
like in Star Fox 64, you just come to a huge wall and it says: "STOP! END
Music and Sound 4 out of 10
Music and sound a key factors in a good game. In Chopper Attack, the
sounds and music really aren't that great. The only reason it got even
a four is because of the sound of the machine-gun rounds plopping
onto the ground and the screams of the soldiers and POW's when they're
shot. The music in Chopper Attack plain stinked.
Game Challenge 8 out of 10
Game challenge, yet another big factor in a good game. If it's too easy
to beat, then what's the point of buying it if you can just beat in a
couple of days by renting it? Well Chopper Attack definitely isn't an
"easy" game. Some levels take many, many tries to live through.
Game Play-Fun 3 out of 10
There's not much of an explanation needed for the low score of Chopper
Attacks fun-factor. The objectives and enemies in some levels just
get too annoying. Also, it takes a couple of days to get use to the dumb
off-set aimer it provides you with.
Replayability 1 out of 10
Replayability gives a game more value to the owner. Chopper Attack
simply just can't be played again and again after you've already beat
the game, because the fun-factor is below most people's standards.
