  • Excerpt: The games of the Ace Combat series have never tried to be flight sims but they have always felt as if they had the same respect for the super-engineered and precise machines, along with the men and women who fly them. Players of the Ace Combat series have been dedicated fans since Air Combat in 1992 and while we've seen improvements (especially upon graphics) there has always been a similar feeling to the series. Cut to Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Review

  • Excerpt: It must be tempting for game developers to try to replicate the Call of Duty business model because of the tremendous success it has had within the last few years. It seems that this was the mindset behind the latest Namco Bandai flight simulator, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon . For better or worse, Project Aces has undoubtedly tried to make their own version of Modern Warfare in the skies.
  • Pros: Dogfight mode is thrilling, Highly detailed cities provide realism, Good entry game for those who have never played a flight-simulator
  • Cons: Short campaign with a weak story, Simple controls, Missions tend to drag on

  • Summary: Ace Combat is back with a focus on cinematic engagements and a more real-world military scenario. The new dog fighting mode brings the action up close and personal in this fight for aerial supremacy.
  • Pros: Looks good with excellent damage models, Multiplayer is well done, More cinematic nature might draw in new players
  • Cons: Level pacing is problematic, Gunship targeting is annoying, Reliance on semi-track-based dog fighting mode is a bad move

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, there was no one else online before launch to test the game out with in multiplayer. Ace Combat 6 offered up fairly solid fun online, and we have little reason to doubt that this one will offer a similar experience. However, there’s also nothing here that hints at a revolutionary, amazing online game. The four modes available are fairly vanilla, bar co-op on selected campaign missions.

  • Excerpt: Det har varit ett förvånansvärt långt uppehåll i Ace Combat-serien. Vid sidan om små utstick här och där till portabla format har vi inte fått ett påkostat spel i serien sedan Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. Redan då märktes det att serien började trampa vatten rent kreativt då mycket av det man gjorde kretsade kring samma recept: jaga fiendeplan, lås på målet och låt sedan de målsökande robotarna ta upp jakten samtidigt som kulsprutan regnar hett bly över din...

  • Excerpt: Hvis filmbranchen lynches for at lave for mange fortsættelser, så kast lige et blik på spilbutikken. Markedet fyldes med spilserier, som får fankulturen til at stivne omkring særlige brands. Arcade-simulatoren, Ace Combat, startede tilbage i 1992 (dengang under titlen Air Combat) og har i dag hele tolv spil på samvittigheden. Så snart konceptet er krystalliseret, skabes en grad af forudsigelighed og tryghed for flyveglade fanboys. De ved nogenlunde, hvad de kan forvente.
  • Pros: Imponerende grafik, Flotte effekter, Kæmpe udvalg af fartøjer og våben
  • Cons: For meget autopilot, Ensformigt, Spinkelt gameplay.

Test : Ace Combat Assault Horizon (PS3)

Gamekult.com
14 October 2011
  • Summary: Sans parler de reboot , Assault Horizon marque un véritable tournant pour Ace Combat . Pour la première fois depuis bien longtemps, Project Aces se mouille et prend le risque de bousculer une formule efficace pour faire évoluer sa série. Hélas, tous ces risques ne sont pas forcément payants.
  • Pros: Du grand spectacle !, Réalisation très convaincante, Situations variées, Multi efficace
  • Cons: Scénario téléphoné, Pilotage trop simplifié, Trop de script tue le script, 15 minutes de railshooting, sérieusement ?!, Moins gratifiant que ses prédécesseurs

  • Summary: Högt, lågt och fullständigt kaotiskt – nya Ace Combat förvirrar och underhåller på samma gång.
  • Pros: Bildsköna luft- och markstrider, Härligt udda mix av uppdrag, Riktigt bra, valbara kontroller
  • Cons: Stentrista jaktstrider..., ...som pågår i evigheter!, Fånigt osannolik fysiksimulering
