Horrible

Not as good

Not as good as the previous Ace Combats. You cannot roll the aircraft, which is essential to performance in a dogfight. I never got past the first mission as I was frustrated with it.

I should have listened...

I tend to ignore user reviews because I've found some real gems that other people hated, but in this one instance, I really should have listened. I have always loved the Ace Combat series, even the ones that were on the PSP that were a slight departure from what I had come to expect. In this case, however, it was so far from what I was used to that I was immediately turned off, but I persisted. I was sure that underneath all the strange, new mechanics, the game would start to shine.

I hated the controls, foremost. It felt like I was fighting to make the plane do the things I had come to expect. Like trying to roll through the air to follow an enemy while the controls were trying to auto-level the plane. I thought having flight assist off would let me do that, but apparently not.

I didn't mind the extras in the game, such as being the gunner on the chopper or on the AC-130. It helped to break up the monotony. It was just everything else. And the story, especially. When I was part of the Demons of Razgriz, I felt like I was part of something. This left me feeling like I was just an observer, watching everything unfold.

Well to begin with i've been an Ace Combat fan since Ace Combat:Electrosphere on PS2. I had went to the local Wal-mart @ 12am just to get it as soon as possible! Low & behold......Ace Combat: Assault Horizon was very bad! I don't mind change,but this was lame! Gone are the days of free flight air combat! I could go on about how this game is a flop to the most hardcore Ace fans like myself. Namco you broke my heart!
