Yet another Durell oldie released by Elite on its Encore label (got all that?), this helicopter simulation is another that's looking its age (1984), but still plays relatively smoothly. Trouble is. Combat Lynx has long been superseded by the likes of Gunship which, if you're into this sort of game, should be at the top of your shopping list. If you're not a multi-millionaire, though, Combat Lynx is a just-about acceptable alternative.
There are loads of things to do, but then this is a flightsim, and so suitable only for people with 23 fingers. Essentially you fizz around defending your bases from enemy attack (i.e. shooting things) before eventually dying horribly yourself. I remember this as being pretty hot four years ago, but now I find it very dry and uninteresting. Is it the game, or is it time? (It's you. Ed) Oh shut up.
