Gameplay[edit]

In Campaign mode, the player can choose which 3 areas to enter in a tour of duty. The Campaign mode also plays video clips and has a briefing before any mission. The player is given a choice of ordnance, and is able to zoom in on the mission map, giving them a satellite view of the area or target and meteorological data.

Reception[edit]

A reviewer for Next Generation called the game "a stunningly realistic simulation of one of the most complex military aircrafts [sic] of all time". He complimented the effectiveness of the polygon graphics, the selection of modes for network and modem play, the extreme realism of the flight simulation, and the balance and ingenuity of the scenario designs. He gave it five out of five stars.[1]

Apache was rated as a PC Gamer Editors' Choice game with a high rating.[citation needed]
