Thanks guys for taking the time to do an updated review, and I pretty much concur with your words.
I have been on a rotor kick lately, building a 600 sized AH-6 RC heli and rereading Night Stalkers. So, I bought TOH at 1.02, flew it around in free flight, but came away unimpressed. Then, tried it again when 1.04 was released, went through some of the training and began Career mode. Now I get it. It's accessible, good looking, and engaging enough for someone interested in how helis work and interested in the day-to-day of a commercial rotor pilot. So far, the story line isn't bad either. Time will tell, but I'm sucked in at this point. It will be interesting to see where BI takes it in 6 mos. to a year.
