Excerpt: Having never played a previous game in the Ace Combat series I decided to give Ace Combat 4 a bash. This game as with most these days starts off with yet another yawn inducing story scene. A big anti-asteroid gun used as a tool for shooting down aeroplanes or something, and some boy talking about playing a harmonica with an enemy pilot who killed his parents zzzzzzzzz. Thankfully you can skip these. Watch the mission briefing, hop into your plane and off you go.
Excerpt: I bought this after reading user reviews on the Gamespot US website. Most readers had given it at least a 9 out of 10 overall, so I thought why not give it a go. Boy am I sorry I did. What a terrible game. It's only plus point is the nicely drawn graphics, but the rest of the game is sadly lacking in all aspects. The sound effects in game are very poor indeed. It just doesn't give a realistic feeling of flying and shooting down other planes.
