Summary: Time ago Jet Simulation Games were popular in PC with many released by year and tons of joysticks from manufacturers. But not anymore. Sure we have Flight Simulator series, X-Plane but those are not games, we have MS Flight but is not combat and finally we had tons of World War II flight combat games. (Wings of Pray, Battlestations and a long list) but Jet Combat with modern graphics only HAWX 1, HAWX 2, LockOn and now Assault Horizon have been released for PC.
Summary: I have always wanted this game but I did not have a playstation or xbox, but when there was a pc version of the game available, I was sold. It is a fast pace game that I play for at least two to three hour sessions when I get the chance. Try it. You will like it.
I'm usually bored with Flight games but this one ROCKS!

Summary: Seems many people who are previous Ace Combat fans HATE this game, but for someone like me who is bored to death by most flight sim games this one kept me interested. Very arcade feel to the game, which is probably why I love it and traditional Ace Combat fans hate it. Everyone who has seen me play it has wanted a copy.
Summary: If you're willing to look past some of this game's poor design choices and give it a chance for what it is I believe it is a fun gaming experience. Everyone goes on about how terrible the new DFM (Dog Fight Mode) mechanic is but it's only absolutely necessary in a few situations where the game wants to show you some sort of short in-game cinematic.
These Japanese know how to make games with essence of film.

Summary: Leaving behind all that crap: -What if I'm a fan of the series for a long time. -What if an arcade game or simulator. -What if the DFM is so bad, you do not like a few. -What if a port late. This truly is a good action game, very well done,on many occasions will feel to be inside one of the best action movies and airplanes. Very well done cinematics accompanied by good music, the music of the first level of Miami is the best I've heard in these games.
