In a surprising twist to the classic flight simulator genre, 1C Company has shown us a new game that will broaden the horizons in this market: a helicopter simulation. Instead of flying the usual assortment of airplanes, players will now pilot the popular Huey from the Vietnam era. Read More.
Well, that's almost true. The truth is that this game is set in 1950, which is very soon after World War II and almost too close for comfort.
