I would recommend this game to pretty much anyone. It has practically no learning curve and can be played for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. If you, like me, are tired of poor quality and low frame rate NES flight sims then this is a great alternative. It won't make your wallet cry either.
The Video Game Critic (Sep 24, 1999)
Here's another outdated first-person air combat game that's frustrating and tedious to play. Super Huey puts you in control of a well-armed attack helicopter entering hostile territory. There are three modes: arcade, flight school, and reality mode. Arcade is pure dog-fighting action, but it's not very challenging. Flight school is a confusing tutorial meant to teach you how to lift off and control your helicopter. You'll need these skills in order to tackle reality mode, which combines flight simulation with air combat. Due to the limited number of buttons, the menu interface used to control the aircraft instruments is very complicated (the original game used a keyboard). It takes a lot of effort just to get the thing off the ground. Once you're airbourne, your cockpit depicts the horizon and small buildings on the ground. Maneuvering your helicopter is difficult and confusing, and the shooting is easy by comparison. Overall, Super Huey is too much work and not enough fun.
