This is me playing through "Oil Tank Holiday", the first mission of Comanche: Maximum Overkill. This is a helicopter simulation of the (now-cancelled) RAH-66 Comanche. The game pioneered the "great graphics, low realism" characteristic that went into most of NovaLogic's games. The graphics were quite impressive for a 1992 DOS game (thanks to the then-pioneering voxel rendering engine), but the flight model is a bit lacking (for example, the collective acts as an altitude selector, changing your actual altitude instead of your rate of climb or descent). At the time, this game competed directly with Gunship 2000 (the only other major helicopter sim of the day), which beat Comanche hands-down in terms of realism and depth of play, but featured relatively flat graphics.
Filmed using the direct-to-AVI feature of DOSBox 0.65, and converted to a YouTube-compatible AVI with mencoder (which comes with MPlayer).
