This game was such a disappointment. The game starts off well but it got too hard when the Russians betrayed you. Namco must be communists because the Russian jets are hard to kill in dog fight mode. If you enter dog fight mode with a Russian jet in 5 seconds a Russian jet will get on your tail and you will have a hard time getting him off your tail and if you have 2 Russians on your tail you are dead meat. Your allies are as useful as a jammed rocket. If you have a bad guy on your tail they will not help you. At least in Hawx 1 and 2 your allies will help you. Like in Hawx 2 where the bad guys abused the flares in this game the bad guys abused the dogfight mode. Don't rent this game on ps3.
This game has phenomenal graphics, but I've been an Ace Combat fan since the first one on the Playstation and this game isn't up to code.
The dog fighting is uber monotonous, UBER, and I hate the word uber. I played this game for a Friday night and didn't want to touch it all weekend after that. I mean if you're a big Ace Combat fan and you need to see the car crash for yourself go ahead, but there's better games coming out and I'm pretty sure not having had a recently released game could give you a better chance at same day shipping on Skyrim, Call of Duty, Saint's Row, Batman, the list goes on, Assault Horizon isn't on it.
