One of the most fascinating types of game played on computers must be aircraft simulators - a well written simulator can give you many hours of really involved playing. Super Huey is a helicopter simulator and in my opinion is far better than many other flight simulators on the market.

There are four programs included which use the same helicopter simulator. Each has a different mission and will hold your interest for a long time.

The screen shows you a picture of what you would see from the cockpit, exactly as if you were in the pilot's seat. The on-board computer will let you enter various commands to help with your mission ego giving maps & grids, finding coordinates and arming your weapons. All the computer readings are shown in adequate detail and are very realistic.

The graphics are absolutely amazing - they have to be seen to be believed. The speed and action is very fast, objects on the ground are solid and contain quite a lot of detail (as you find out if you fly near something).

There are excellent sound effects which match all the actions of the helicopter, you will even hear a mighty explosion if you should crash land and blow up.

Although the price may seem high at first compared with other games, this represents extremely good value for money. It is a well written program, has a very good manual and is extremely addictive to play.
