    You have not seen a helicopter game like this one before. AirStrike 3D: Operation W.A.T. is more than just a game. It is action packed, adrenaline filled, apocalyptic survival experiment for the daredevils. Game's awesome 3D engine, combined with adjustable camera views and Hollywood-style special effects provide breathtaking visual experience and make an action hero out of you, rather than just a regular gamer. Strap on tight, pilot, because there are 20 levels to complete, with over 100 different enemy units, 5 types of hostile terrain and 3 powerful terrorist bosses to handle. You have 10 different helicopters at your disposal. As you successfully complete missions and meet goals set by commanders, you will be given access to more sophisticated crafts and powerful weapons. Sometimes you'll have to be a Superman to stay alive, but you will be justly rewarded with rank promotions and fast carrier growth for completing their near-impossible missions. Another reward is a chance to "test-drive" G.O.R.O.X., Plasma Cannon, Wave Gun, and Flamethrower. Any one of these is enough to completely destroy a small country, and you are sure to derive some sick pleasure from creating havoc and annihilating everything in your path. You won't forget sweet songs of these guns for a long time. But let's be honest - it won't be easy. You'll have to fly in different weather conditions, including night missions. Complex behavior of your enemies will cause extra difficulties and will pose great danger. You'll just have to be smarter, faster and better to stay alive! Game's graphics and special effects deserve special mentioning. The environment is fully interactive with photo-realistic 3D landscapes. Another great plus is game's advanced particle based system for generation of fire, water, smoke and sparks. With dynamic, realtime shadows, reflections and lighting, you may be tricked into thinking that you are watching a movie on a digital TV set.

    "...The gameplay in Air Strike 3D is extraordinarily addictive, and I have never found mass destruction more enjoyable..." (The Adrenaline Vault, 01/2003)

    You'll just have to be smarter, faster and better to stay alive! "...those of us who want an adrenaline-pumping break from the real world should give it an immediate try..." (The Adrenaline Vault, 01/2003)

    Game's graphics and special effects deserve special mentioning. The environment is fully interactive with photo-realistic 3D landscapes. The explosions are huge, spectacular and are very well done. Another great plus is game's advanced particle based system for generation of fire, water, smoke and sparks. With dynamic, realtime shadows, reflections and lighting, you may be tricked into thinking that you are watching a movie on a digital TV set. The game has very modest system requirements and supports external controller devices, such as joystick.

    "...One of the first things you will notice is the graphics, and AirStrike 3D's graphics are phenomenal! The colors are rich and compelling and the texture detail is excellent. The explosions are nothing short of breathtaking!..." (Digital Diversions, 03/2003)

    "...those of us who want an adrenaline-pumping break from the real world should give it an immediate try..." (The Adrenaline Vault, 01/2003)

    "...Sometimes you want to quit playing it — but you can’t. The only thing you have to do is to grit your teeth and repeat “Hey! You’re a man, not a milksop! Let’s try again to pass this bloody level!...” (Games Spectator, 01/2003)

    "...The gameplay in Air Strike 3D is extraordinarily addictive, and I have never found mass destruction more enjoyable..." (The Adrenaline Vault, 01/2003)

    "...a fine example of a 3D shoot 'em up extravaganza." (CanadianGamer.ca, 02/2003)

    "...AirStrike 3D is a very intense and fun flight combat game which is also visually stunning. With 5 difficulty settings and strong bosses, the challenge will not fade quickly." (Digital Diversions, 03/2003)

    "Overall, Airstrike 3D is one of the best looking shooters you'll play this year!" (Game Tunnel, 03/2003)

    "Brilliant graphics and frenetic action will keep your rotors spinning." CNet Editor's Pick.

    Game Tunnel:
    "Just five days into 2003, Divogames raised the bar...WAY UP! This is a wonderful game to play and enjoy. Any true shooter fan MUST own this game. I believe time will prove this to be one of the better shooters ever created. Those who don't typically like shooters should try it out as well." Overall: 9

    Visual effects are perfect. Soudtrack is very energetic and agressive (as well as the game is). If you like shooting and mass destruction — do not miss this game. 5 eyes award.
