The successor to Gunship, it really isn't as recent as the name suggests, but rather a 1993 implementation of the Gunship concept. You get VGA graphics, which are much better than those in the original, and decent sound. You have two campaigns to fight, flying around in helicopters ranging from feeble MD500s to Apaches and Comanches. The Islands & Ice add-on gives you another campaign and some new stuff to blow up (or be blown up with). Flight modelling is decent, but not very realistic, portraying some characteristics of helicopter flight. There's a large array of weapons at your fingers' disposal, ready to relocate parts of the surrounding landscape. The avionics modelling isn't really realistic, but will do.

What this game has going for it is playability, some decent graphics and unusual choppers (the MD500 and the Blackhawk). Recent similar games include Longbow 2 (which is still the best helicopter sim bar none, good for both novices and experts alike), and Apache vs Havoc.
