Comanche vs. Werewolf - PC

Nova Logic's farewell popper to US Gold before being embraced by EA's stumpy forearms, Comanche vs Werewolf is efectively a compilation of three years of dance (helicopter simulation).

The enhancements over the 1993 Comanche are minimal - translucent smoke, ground debris - and as a result the graphics give off a faint whiff of dried roe.

Like sometimes you can't see your enemies until it's too late, Manny.

What Comanche vs Werewolf does offer - besides the two different whirlsons - is a welter of multi-player options. Modem, network, link - but you'll still need extra copies of the game to do so.

As a one-player game, there are plenty of new missions (over 100 in all), all neatly designed.

If you've got a 386 (though how many of these have 8Mb RAM?), this could be worth a look. For a state-of-the art sim, look at Apache Longbrow instead.
