Montreal, Canada. March 21st, 2007. Software Publisher Strategy First Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSTR), announced the signing of the new flight sim title Enemy Engaged 2. Developed by Gameyus Interactive, the sequel is due to be released Q2, 2007.

We are pleased to be working again with Strategy First to bring Enemy Engaged 2 to North American fans. Strategy First Inc, like Gameyus, focuses on exciting titles that provide gamers with a new and challenging experience. We believe that Enemy Engaged 2 will meet and exceed the expectations of even the most demanding flight sim fans. We invite all gamers to let us know what they think of Enemy Engaged 2, and look forward to their suggestions and wish lists for add-ons, says Uros Rogulja, Chief Operating Officer for Gameyus Interactive.

Enemy Engaged 2 is a very convincing and realistic chopper combat simulator. The attention to detail and authenticity is overwhelming at times. I look forward to working with Gameyus on this great project, says Brock Beaubien, Producer at Strategy First.

Enemy Engaged 2 is the sequel to the best selling chopper classic, Enemy Engaged: RAH-66 Comanche Versus Ka-52 Hokum, a game that received universal praise for its dynamic and ground breaking content and continues to maintains a large player base. Released in 2000, the original Enemy Engaged set the standard for 21st century flight sims with stunningly realistic visuals and attention to detail.

Enemy Engaged 2 is set to take the series even further with new dynamic missions and a complete overhaul of graphics and audio that bring the game up to date with the latest and best flight simulations available.

Features:

* Modern helicopter combat simulation with realistic flight physics.
* Three exciting theaters of war with two opposing campaigns each.
* Dynamic real-time battlefields. No linear mission plot or predefined unit behavior.
* Over 30,000 square kilometers of flying area over Lebanon, Taiwan and Korea.
* Diverse combat environments executed in lush 3D detail under a wide range of weather conditions.
* Over 1,200 very detailed and blue-print precise vehicles, chosen from among proven classics in actual use in armed forces around the globe.
* Use immersive voice control to command your gunner and wingman.

Enemy Engaged 2 will be available across North America Q2, 2007 at the suggested price of $19.99.

$20??! Well, silly NOT to get it at that price. However, it certainly explains why there wasn't as much redone as some had hoped for.

Wow, that price is surprising. I'm not complaining. I hope that is a real incentive for people to buy it and at least try it. Hopefully if they get a lot of sales that will help convince them to go forward and offer additional features (read: flyable aircraft). They were going to get my money anyways just so I could see what it was like and to sort of support the community. This price simply guarantees what was already guaranteed I guess. \:\)

No multiplayer mentioned. Oh well.

I wouldn't worry about MP.
No sim can be sold without it.
The best feature of EECH is MP ! (especially over LAN)
I know few sims where you can have the map view on a seperate screen if you wish (also because of EECH1 MP).
I think that G2Games would never have chosen EECH as a basis for a successor product without it.
There is nothing I learned so far that indicates (too me anyway) that it's going to be a letdown.

Having 'multiplayer' on the box differs greatly from having 'multiplayer' as users see it - ie it works over a broadband connection smoothly. We don't have to look back to far to see a good example of this.

I'm sure there will be 'multiplayer' in the product in some manner that will at least qualify the words - but will it work? what was changed?

Having played a lot of EECH online I know there was a lot to be desired.


What WW2 Fighter pilots say about Angels and Airspeed:

"Nice job of getting down to the basics - love your choice of a cover!" Col. Clarence 'Bud' Anderson

"I have enjoyed reading angels and airspeed, it should prove good reading for all interested in combat tactics and their application related to the fluid air environment and state of technology in WWII years. All the best as you make it available." - Col. Charles McGee - Tuskegee Airman

NEVER ENGAGE STUPID.

Most probably so Bard, but over a LAN (apart from occasional crashes) EECH1 sure was/is a blast !
I hope they put in the feature Gunship! has: pilot/gunner co-op missions.
But OK, I'll stop guessing for now. I'm only nagging myself (let alone you guys).

I am really looking forward to this. My first PC simulation was Longbow 2. I have been flying jet sims mostly since, and would love to get back into an updated helo-sim with a dynamic campaign. They'll definitely get my $19. The screenies look awesome.
