    Not a Heli lot of fun

    Tiger-Heli is one of those games that it seems like every had as a kid except for me. Maybe it was really cheap, maybe it was a lot of fun to some people. Who knows? Here is the plot. You are a helicopter, and yo... Read Full Review

    Stick with The Guardian Legend

    Words just can't describe how much this game royally sucks. It takes every single cliche found in vertical scrolling shooters but doesn't expand upon them. You get the little sidekicks that assist in your shooting. Yo... Read Full Review

    A straight up no-nonsense shooter from the NES' heydey. Tiger-Heli is a solid, albeit generic experience.

    What is so appealing about Tiger-Heli is its honest, straightforward gameplay. Sure, there are dozens of titles like this on the NES, but Tiger-Heli pushes itself towards the front of the pack with its addictive gameplay... Read Full Review

    Treadmill games were never my thing.

    Taking a first glance at the cartridge, it looks like a pretty kick ass game! There's a helicopter shooting freaking lazer beams at a tank. C'mon! I was seizure with excitement walking home with this baby. Coming back to... Read Full Review

    Rinse and repeat.

    Tiger Heli starts out as a great game, I remember when I first started playing this game the idea of flying a helicopter through a city destroying it was very appealing to me. The game start you up on a very promising ro... Read Full Review

    So-So

    My dad used to play this game too much. I didnt like this game that much. There was some graphics problem. There was only one music played in the whole game unless you get a mini helicopter to aid your main one. The leve... Read Full Review

    Yikes!

    Tiger-Heli is one of the worst shoot em up type games ever made. For any system including Atari. Basically what it is is a vertical scrolling shooter. The only difference is that you are a helicopter. Your arsenal for th... Read Full Review

    It's not the best NES game ever, but not the worst either, even with the endless looping of sound and gameplay.

    Tiger-Heli is not the best NES game ever, but it's not the worst either, despite the endless looping of sound and gameplay. The plot revolves around the player assuming the role of the pilot of the game's title attack he... Read Full Review

    Tiger-Heli doesn't even attempt anything that would make it stand out from any of the other shooters on the NES.

    Games need to do more than have passable gameplay to be worth your or my time. They need to have some other aspect that compels you to play them as opposed to the countless other similar games out there. An engaging stor... Read Full Review

    Short game that repeats itself, Sounds fun?

    Tiger heli for NES is a mediocre game, even for the NES age. For starters, the game is fairly bland and VERY repetitive, you only ever see the same enemies and scenery and it gets old, quick. To make matters worse, whil... Read Full Review
