Overall not many games on the N64 are flight-sim oriented, but Acclaim decided that
that needed to be changed. This smash hit has already become another very popular
game being sold out and rented out in stores nationwide. The game is action packed,
and it features a wide range of action and many, many things to blow the living $%*@
out of. Chopper Attack is so far one of the most action packed games of its genre,
and I will prove it to you right now.
Graphics 9 out of 10
The detailed explosions and the little things like the rotors on the choppers and the
detailed lava of a volcano add to the many fun things to see in chopper Attack. The
graphics are state of the art, but can get a little blocky especially at the End Level
screens. Each chopper is uniquely designed in shape, size, and color, and you can even
see the gun turrets on each chopper. The enemies are also in great detail, with tanks
that have bulldogs painted on them, even the flailing arms and legs of soldiers you
just wasted with your volcano. You can see after a building has been destroyed the
structure and database of the building in flames in a crippled hulk of metal. Overall,
this is one of those games that will settle your eyes taste buds.
Music and Sound 8 out of 10
The sound is so incredibly realistic, I found myself getting up to check if we were
being attacked by Iraqis. The detailed explosions add a great effect especially with
the bass on Mach 10. You can her the soldiers scream as you fill their guts with lead.
You can hear the rotary of the...rotaries on each and every chopper, and with a great
soundtrack to back it up, you'll have hours of fun annoying your family and friends with
the constant racket of machine guns and rockets bursting.
Game Challenge 9 out of 10
I find myself beating these games awfully quickly, but once I got past the 4th level,
things started to get a little tough. With situation where you have to hunt down
radars, save the president's plane, fly through mountains, dodge many bad guys and
wipe out almost an entire population of bad people, you'll have plenty of things on your
hands with this game. If you think just because there are only 7 levels you will beat
this game quickly, think again Ace.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
I don't have much to say on this but: Who can't have fun destroying buildings and
shooting little soldiers with extremely powerful guns and homing bombs? I haven't
had this much fun since Saturday Morning Cartoons. Go ahead, just see for yourself
you will have hours of fun in Training mode just blowing stuff up. Trust me, I did,
and hey, from a guy that likes Saturday Morning Cartoons...just see for yourself.
Rumble Pak 5 out of 10
The rumble pak isn't used much, or maybe because I need to check the batteries on
mine, but I though that there would be a lot more use of it with the constant crashing
and shooting, but I realized it only is used when a BIG rocket hits you, not just when
anything hits you. I may be wrong, but I don't think you need one to enjoy this game.
The levels may get a bit frustrating with all the bad guys and things to do and
saving the little white men, but once you get the hang of the controls you will
have fun. TRUST ME.
Replayability 10 out of 10
Let's face it, after you play level 3 and save the president, you know you just want to
go back and blow the snout out of him! There is nothing funnier than shoving rockets
down Bill's throat. No level select (it doesn't work I tell you!) makes it hard to go
back to a level you want.
Damage factor 10 out of 10
"Destroy everything" is my motto so what the hey this games has that for all you
sociopaths that like to blow up stuff. Go ahead.
Overall 9 out of 10
This is one of the funniest games out there with great graphics and sound, I rate this
game "Hours of fun, with a Vulcan gun" so go out there and blow stuff up!
