very fun games. Assault Horizon is complete garbage

Summary: Disappointing. I played Ace Combat 4 and 0 years before and wanted to get the new one since they have a history of being epic, story-driven, very fun games. Assault Horizon is complete garbage.
Summary: My little brother is an airplane games fan, so I purchased this for him. He likes almost all airplane games but for some reason he does not like this game at all. I personally don't like airplane games because I feel like they don't have much action in them in general so I can't say that this is much different from the norm.
Summary: I understand this is an arcade style game and realism is thrown out the window, but it's extremely frustrating when your wingmen/allies don't do anything whatsoever. Every mission has your character basically saying, I'm going to go after this target, so cover my six. Instead, they fly around and do nothing. On the last mission, you go after one bomber and everyone else is basically tasked to cover your behind.
Summary: I have injoyed namco's Ace combat Series, until now... The last 2 or 3 installments of Ace combat that was made for the PSP and Xbox I didn't have the opportunity to play, because I don't own any of those systems. I still don't understand why those games wasn't made for ps2/ps3. It's been a long wait for ace combat assault Horizon. My motto is if it's not broken why fix it.. I don't want to waste time going in detailes about this game.
Summary: This has been a terrible addition to a great franchise. The biggest issue is the fact the game cast itself into main stream making it barely distinguishable from its competitor HAWKs. It you are new to the franchise I would highly recommend buying earlier copies of the series (4-6) and get the true Ace Combat Experience.
Summary: I wouldn't call this an Ace Combat game, rather it's Ace-like in nature. I liked the old way, start with a minor plane, shoot down enough people to get credits so you can buy better planes and more powerful weapons. There are no credits in this, shooting down the other 'non-target' planes grants you nothing. The only incentive to do that is so they won't shoot you down.
Summary: I've played every Ace Combat and this one is a waste of my time. The new Dogfight Mode (DFM) eliminates the need for skilled piloting. When you are close enough to the enemy, you can hit your controller bumpers and the plane goes into an autopilot dogfight on rails. During DFM you attempt to lock-on with a missile or shoot your opponent down with guns. I want to fly the plane, not ride it like a taxi.
Summary: Very Simple The Good: -bomber mission -longbow missions -ac130 mission -multi-player The Bad: -the new flight system -the AI -the new dogfight mode. it is not that bad but, a lot of times you feel cheated, after chasing and throwing an immense amount of led and missiles to a plane it is frustrating that it won't explode. Ace combat 6 is better !
