Search And Rescue 4

This is a game that does exactly what it says on the tin, so to speak. Search And Rescue 4 is a coastal helicopter rescue simulation boasting over 100 missions. Most of these entail you taking off from your base, picking up someone or something and taking them or it somewhere else, before going back to the aforementioned base.
If the missions are a tad samey, the flight model is realistic and the environments are pleasantly varied - arctic areas, dusty canyons, oil rigs out at sea. These things make the game surprisingly enjoyable. And although the graphics are nothing special by today's standards, they do their job nicely.
The lack of variety means that this isn't going to appeal to everybody, but flight sim fans with a penchant for the different should find plenty to keep them occupied.
