Fair

I miss the old Ace Combat

Ace Combat Assault Horizon is not the Ace Combat I knew from the first 6 games. It's like it tried too hard to be like Call of Duty with airplanes, and I hadn't even made it to the Spectre gunship mission yet. I hope that if another Ace Combat is made, it goes back to the roots of what made it good.

Weak

Decent game...but horrible Ace Combat title

After playing all of the previous Ace Combat titles I am very disappointed in this release. It was disturbing to find that the body of this game centers around quick button mashes for automatic dodge maneuvers rather than flight skill and actual piloting of the aircraft.

The "dogfight mode" places the plane on a virtual autopilot and forces you to chase the target aircraft through a prescribed path, and then often dumps you straight into a mountainside or building after the target is destroyed. The camera also auto focuses on squad mates executing their maneuvers leaving your plane often on a collision course with the ground or at least pulling you away from a target.

I have never been so mad at a game in my life!!!

You cannot roll your aircraft, it is imposable! I could not fallow enemy's log enough to use the semi active radar missiles, because of auto-center and no rolling!!!

I cannot kill makorav, to save my werewolf 2 wingman.
instead i die!!! auto-center

it auto-centers, this "auto-center" system gets me killed over and over ........

I ask my self do they know that aircraft can perform a roll/barrel roll? and that a pilot can roll to turn sharp, and that auto-center will not affect a real plane/pilot! auto center is NOT "auto pilot!" this system was a choice in "ace combat 6" It should have stayed just that, A CHOICE!!!!
