The new one from Digital Integration (hurrah!). It's 3D (whoopee!). It's by D. K. Marshall (cheer!). It's a helicopter combat game (frenzied excitement!). Oh, and it features Lenslok. (Gruurrroooaan!)

Digital Integration are yet another company to invest in Lenslok. And here at C&VG we reckon that it's probably the most diabolically dreadful system ever invented. It's horrible, and we don't like it. We couldn't get it to work. And DI wouldn't give us an unprotected copy, which put this reviewer in an absolutely foul mood.

Happily though, the game isn't quite as hard to get to grips with. Well, not quite... As with Fighter Pilot before it, Tomahawk is amazingly complex.

Taking off isn't too difficult (it only took me twenty minutes to work that out!) From that point in, however, things become much more difficult. You have to take an awful lot of care while flying.

If you like simulations, then you'll probably like this too.
