Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy review
24 June 2012
Excerpt: The first thing you need to know about Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy is that after you clear a mission, dive-bombing into the mountains is a bad idea. Unlike most games, that Mission Cleared screen does not grant godlike immunity, and we had to restart more missions than we'd like to admit...
Pros: Tons of unlockables, Awesome music, Good graphics, great 3D
Cons: The lack of multiplayer, Killing everybody’s friends, Your fingers’ joints
Excerpt: Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy comes to the 3DS just after Ace Combat Assault Horizon's on consoles, but it's not a scaled down version of the console game. In fact, the addition of "Legacy" to the game's title is rather significant.
Conclusion: for the Nintendo until now. It’s a decent outing, but has its issues. First of all, the visuals in this game are great – most of the time. There has clearly been some care put into the production. When you are close to objects in the game, you will really get a sense of speed.
Conclusion: Add everything together and you have a perfectly enjoyable game in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy. You can ding the game for its uninteresting story and relatively simple mission design, but the game works incredibly well as a portable distraction, makes great use of 3D, and offers plenty of...
Summary: Despite my initial bewilderment, I was impressed with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy. It ia a fine first foray into Nintendo-land for the Ace Combat series and definitely worth a look for fighter plane aficionados.
Pros: Excellent control system, Impressive 3D visuals
Cons: Very misleading first mission, Music is a bit out of place

It was a flight simulation game in which the gamer can take control of several different planes to accomplish their missions, including F-4 Phantoms and Su-27...
Excerpt: I came to really appreciate how Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy handles the 3DS's 3D feature. Turning up the slider doesn't add any crazy 3D effects; instead, it adds a nice depth of field (perfect for a flight game) and some subtle lift between the game screen and HUD.
