Summary: I could cry thinking about this game. I could cry thinking about the last 2 installments, too. For its time, it was technologically stunning. Even today if remains a good looking game. I must have spent countless hundreds of hours playing this as a child.
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: Just adding my 2 cents' worth here. If you're new to the series or haven't played this before, by all means get yourself a copy and play it. You may wish to purchase it as it is fun to play again. The graphics are quite good, even when compared to Ace Combat 6.
Summary: You know, out of all the games I've played, I have to say Ace Combat 4 ranks rather high on my favorites list. Sequals since have come and gone with improved wingman and graphics, but none have matched the emotionally gripping story, unforgettable soundtrack, and the most epic and dramatic climactic...
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...
