I'm a big fan of the Ace Combat series. The last title, "Fires of Liberation", was not only entertaining but made me feel proud because of the story. This new title does not get me involved. In fact I found myself trying to beat missions as fast as I could so that the game experience would be over. Flying the Apache helicopter was a terrible experience, it made me feel so sick with the weird camera angles that kept me crashing to buildings. The DFM (Dog Fight Mode) was a cool novelty the first few times I used it. But it quickly became an annoyance to use. My final complaint is that we don't get all the fantastical machines, like the flying aircraft carrier, in this one seeing as they are trying for a more realistic (??) approach. Maybe because of Modern Warefare and such they figured this is what gamers want. I only hope that with Ace Combat 8, whenever that may be, namco goes back to the old formula that we grew to love.
