While a bit of a departure from the previous series this side of Ace Combat is a heck of a game on its own. The intensity has been ramped way up and the dogfights are an adrenaline rush unmatched in the series.

The "other" missions where you man a bomber/AC130/helicopter are mediocre diversions for the most part and the plot is pretty forgettable but none of it got in the way of wanting to jump back into one of my favorite planes.

My advice: If you like airplane games at all, adjust your expectations slightly, turn up the difficulty, set controls to original, and strap yourself in for one of the best air combat games around.

Arcade Overkill

I am a big fan of the Ace Combat series with Unsung War being my absolute favorite. Assault Horizon plays like a average arcade game you may find at Dave & Busters. The previous installments gave you full control of the game and provided that sense of freedom in the air. This game feel like it was developed by Wii Sports. I am sending the game back to Gamefly right now. So disappointed.

I have been waiting for a new Ace Combat game to come for years now and it was definitely not worth the wait. First off all the graphics are cheesy and glitchy for a new game, also the game play is very arcade like and the story plot sucks and jumps all over the place. The one thing i always looked forward to in these games is the attention to detail on all the planes, and that also sucked. The in-game flight experience again is very arcade like and doesnt feel like any other Ace combat game i have ever played. All in all if you are a hardcore Ace Combat fan RENT it see what i am talking about you will be very disappointed.
