You have to pay for it though, right? I checked out the page and it looks cool, but I didn't see anywhere that offered a free download.

It sucks. I want my money back. The graphics are fuzzy, the flight dynamics are horrible.

Save your money.

Still asking why

Graphics are fine on my comp. All settings maxed except the clouds.
Flight models definitely need work More of a game than a sim at this point. Hopefully the modders will improve on it.

Have to agree the flight modelling leaves a lot to be desired,but civilian helicopter sims are few and far between.I am sure patches will improve things as time goes on.Playing with settings can improve things as far as flying goes,but at times it still feels as though the controls are not connected.I am sure this will be improved as a lot of the challenges within the game require precision landings and hover.At least there is interaction within a civilian based game unlike FSX where add on models such as Dodosim,s Bell 206 are superb as far as computer based dynamics go but in a lifeless world compared to this game.Be nice to have both

I was a little harsh, I responed with out thinking. I thought the game was FSX around Seattle with a good story, and I really liked the idea.
I have been playing FSX with REX 2.0 and Pacific Blue addons, I am spoiled with it.

I expected to much.

Still asking why

I am a big fan of Microsofts simulators,some of the scenery,aircraft add ons are superb,i paid more than the cost of Take on helicopters for the Dodosim Bell 206 alone so it is not that pricy for a rare heli sim in my opinion.The graphics are not up to Fsx it is true but i am sure development will be ongoing.Next on my list is an update of computer to keep the games as best as i can afford
