Showing 1-10 of 114
My favorite PS2 game of all time!
10 August 2013
Summary: I realize that I am writing this review well over a decade since this game was released for the PS2. However this is truly the only reason why I continue to use my old PS2 because Ace Combat 4 is the most fun and intense fighter jet video game that I have ever played.
Conclusion: Ace Combat 04 is a true war game with all the action commonly seen and also the emotion rarely seen in these types of games. Project Aces once again takes the flight genre in a new direction that will hopefully continue on.
Pros: Although dated, Ace Combat 04 can hold its own as (in my opinion) the best title in the best air combat series. It takes a some doing to merit this, but I don't exaggerate when I say that Shattered Skies has it all.
Cons: The main problem I see is that for players with some skill, the 18 mission campaign is over way too fast. There is however, 2 player co-op mode and score attack challenges.
Pros: I didn't play much flying games back in the day (unless you count EA's Strike Series), so the first time I saw this game I was a little curious and was really shocked on how well this game was.
Cons: Well, one thing did bother me, it was that this game felt...soft. It's kinda hard to explain, it's almost like there was a soft feel to it, the graphics are bright making it almost seem like it was a light-hearted event. Even the explosions didn't seem real, back then they were pretty well done, ...
Summary: In scanning over the reviews, I can't believe no one mentioned that you basically work your way up to better planes and equiptment in this game and what that really means. In my view, this is one of the best aspects of the game because, at first, you're pretty much of a sitting duck in the crappy...
Summary: No rival ,hands down one of the best flying simulator since Top Gun Fire at will(not counting the cheeze videos of fly crew talking to you).AC4 is highly addictive the the controller are sweet and easy to get the hang of it the graphics are top notch with a decent story line.the diversity of planes...
Summary: It's one of my favorite PS2 games. I've been looking for good PS2 flight sim and this one is a jewel. Controls are simple and well taught in a series of tutorials. The difficulty is ramping up very gently.
Awesome, but missing something - random mission generator!

Summary: I love air combat games, pure and simple. Shooting down bombers, dropping payloads on ground targets, and dogfighting with jets - these are the core ingredients to a good flight action game, and Ace Combat 4 has plenty of each. It's not perfect, but there is a lot to enjoy.
Games like this make me say I'm a "gamer" with a proud tone in my voice

Pros: This game is simply beautiful. It has been a long time since a game made such an impact upon me, and I've played so many I thought I've seen it all. Still, it is times like these that make a difference in my life and start appreciating the whole gaming industry even more. First to say, I am not k...
Cons: I was touched too much by this game's story and the way it was being told to make any points against it, cut me too deep to recoil.
Don't Be Fooled By Its Price: You won't be disappointed!

Summary: I personally do not buy 'flight simulator' games because I am not simply interested in them. However, I gave Ace Combat 4 a try simply because it was cheap. Frankly I just don't like these 3D 'shooter' games; I'm a hardcore 2D shooter fan- however... Wow...
