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.
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.
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...
Summary: I'm not going to go into much detail because the other reviews have it covered with the exception that if you're a flight sim fan, this game is a MUST HAVE. Never have I seen a console flight sim so realistic in putting the player behind the cockpit.
Summary: I've been flying simulators on PCs for years. When I tried Ace Combat 4, I was amazed. The graphics, play, and game storyline are great. I've completed the missions several times but continue to play, just for the joy of flying.
Summary: I have had this game for a very long time, and it is still the greatest game (outside of the NBA Live series) ever made. The graphics in AC: 04 are good, but not amazing. What I like most about this game is the senerio you are put up against, being an ace pilot for the ISAF.
