Pros & Cons:
- Stunning graphics!
- Lots of missions!

C.H.A.O.S is a lush helicopter sim that puts you in the cockpit of various real-world helicopters and gets you to fly through real-world battle locations. You have access to an assortment of cool weaponry and lots of missions to complete. The first things you’re going to need if you want to be a successful pilot is a grasp of the controls.
The controls in the game are notoriously hard to get used to. All the manoeuvrability is there, just not always intuitive. I’ve spent quite a while in this game and the controls were a real test to work through. It combines on-screen swipes which make you dynamically change direction, drop or rise quickly. You have a thumb controller to make you move in a more controlled way, and then you have tilt control which essentially moves you forward and backward. The real challenge in combining these, especially in close combat situations and feel full in control. It’s not easy, trust me.
After some practice, a bit of frustration and a few bitten nails, you just about get your head around it and progress through basic missions. I think once you’ve learnt the controls the game becomes the joy it truly is. You can upgrade your heli and there are several real-life models to try out. You engage with various enemy units and locations and each mission feels different from the last. Sometimes you attack enemy bases, other times you defend your own.
I think many people will download the game but face this brick wall when it comes to learning the controls. My advice would be to stay persistent and not give up too easily. If you keep going the game becomes terrifically rewarding and lots of fun. With such gorgeous graphics, immersive sound and three different views: third person, first person and cockpit view- it’s just an excellent game with lots of detail and action.

With your head around the controls, C.H.A.O.S is loads of fun and hugely immersive. Taking down enemy craft is superb and the level of detail is excellent.
Definitely! There are plenty of missions and the multi-player mode rocks!
The graphics are incredible, by far some of the very best available on a mobile device. There are lots of different locations, day and night modes and everything is rich with detail.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The accelerometer controls work really well, but combining with the onscreen controls at the same time can be tricky to begin with.
