  • Summary: Compared to Ace Combat 5, both the storyline itself and the method in which it plays out is vastly different. Unlike Shattered Skies, there are actual rendered cutscenes that tell the story between missions; also unlike Ace Combat 4, the storyline almost directly deals with you and your squadron, instead of simply offering a parallel interpretation of events. The storyline of Ace Combat 4 was good; the story of Ace Combat 5 is excellent, with twists and turns throughout.

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War

Playstation Illustrated
13 June 2005
  • Excerpt: The Ace Combat series from Namco has always been one of the better arcade style dog-fighting games out there. The quality of the series has also seemed to teeter during its course. While Ace Combat 4 was a huge leap forward in the quality of the series, I’m sad to announce that Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War , while certainly better in some respects, takes a tiny step back due to a large number of small design issues.

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War

Game Over Online
14 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Not to knock Top Gun or anything, but as far as gaming is concerned, the Ace Combat series has really provided a “highway to the danger zone.” For more than ten years, PlayStation owners have taken to the skies, taking out air and ground targets from the wild blue yonder. It’s been almost three years since the series made the leap over to the PS2, and this year’s edition is arguably one of the better games in the franchise.

  • Excerpt: Flying the friendly skies is a thing of the past now that I have Ace Combat 5. I crave aerial action and look forward to stealing the living room TV for the purposes of protecting Sand Island from the invaders of Yucktobania. Ok I guess I’ll have to fill you in eh? Here we go.

PSX Extreme
28 October 2004
  • Excerpt: The long and running Ace Combat series has returned with its second appearance on the PS2. Originally debuting on the PSX as Air Combat, Namco's flagship air fighter series has remained the dominant player in the genre. Succeeding the all too awesome Ace Combat 4, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War arrives during a time when all of the hype revolves around two games I won't mention for the sake of taking nothing away from AC5.

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War

Level 7
15 April 2005
  • Conclusion: De olika flygplanen är extremt detaljerade och man kan till och med se piloterna. Miljöerna som besöks är otroligt vackra - om man inte kommer för nära marken det vill säga. Ett stort plus för de ursnygga filmsekvenserna. Spelets handling är både gripande och intensiv. Under striderna gör det fantastiska ljudet att närvarokänslan ökar till 110 %. Medan man spelar Ace Combat 5 blir man lycklig, förbannad, ledsen och panikslagen. Här finns allt och lite till.
  • Pros: Mästerligt soundtrack, Perfekt kontroll, Stor variation på uppdragen, Spännande handling, Fantastisk inlevelse
  • Cons: Inga checkpoints på banorna, Kunde ha varit längre, Grötig grafik om man flyger nära marken

Ace Combat 5 (ps2)

10 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Kein Flugzeugsimulator, sondern vielmehr eine Arcade-Fliegerspiel in einem realistischen Gewand verbirgt sich hinter Ace Combat 5. Nicht nur Flugzeug-Fans, welche zahlreiche echte Flugmodelle entdecken werden, sondern auch alle anderen, die sich auf ein knallhartes wunderbar in Szene gesetztes Abenteuer einlassen wollen, werden ihre wahre Freude an dem Titel haben. Optisch sicherlich kein Quantensprung mehr, wie es der Vorgänger noch war.
