This is a definite advance from its predecessor. the controls are a good design layout but can be frustrating for someone who didn't try the first game. the gameplay all together hasn't changed that much besides the fact that new mission types have been introduced, such as gunning a AC 130 and scouting with a UAV. another gameplay change is the take-off/landing mechanic now thrown in which basically tests how good you are at following on screen commands. the AI, now with improved combat sense meaning they use flares more often and also stay close to you so a missile lock can't engage. the improved AI adds more challenge to most if not all missions. the story took about the same amount of time to get through as the first. if you can master the control scheme and like a challenge this game is a must have.

This game looks and plays exactly the same as ace combat for the ps2. The graphics are bad. The gameplay is decent. The story is bland and predictable. There is nothing about this game that makes you want to play. Boring. Not even worth the time wasted to rent it.
