A decent follow up, but not without its flaws.

Conclusion: In the end, Ace Combat 5 is a decent game over it's predecessor with better graphics, CGI storytelling and gut wrenching sounds and sense of speed. However, the same formula from 04 and that damn annoying Bill Paxton wannabe does hurt it a bit, but nothing that hurts the overall feel of the game.
Pros: The first time I saw Ace Combat 5 on the shelf I was a bit intrigued and yet cautious. Even though it's predecessor (Ace Combat 04) was a decent game, it still left me wanting more from it and looking at this game it seems as though as it was going to do the same. After constantly encountering it...
Cons: Well, a few things bothered me, one of which is the pointless and stupid conversations you have during missions. Why this was added to this I'll never understand, it does nothing to the storyline. Originally when I first encountered it I picked the positive option each time, fearing that somehow ...
Summary: Again this game is nearly perfect. It does a great job of going back in time and telling events of what leads to the events of Ace Combat 4. It does a great job of telling a story and makes you become emotionally attached to the characters.
Summary: Ace Combat 5 is a great game!If you love flying and seeing things blow up and shooting things the this is a great game! You get to fly popular jets like the F-22 F-15 and Migs ect. I owen this game and i love it. If your not too sure... then atleast rent the game and try it for your self!
Summary: Ace Combat 5 is excellent fighter pilot game. It pocesses large amounts of combat aircraft you can choose from and fly after you earn the right amount of points to purchuse the aircraft. You are also able to sell previous aircraft you have bought in previvous missions.
Summary: i loved this game, the plot the game play, the graphics all top of the line. It was a great experance for anyone that wants to be in the air force just for the dog fights and how realist it is this game is top notch and if your in to flying and just blowing the living well you get the point
Summary: A vast improvement over AC4. The graphics are better, the controls are faster, and the story is better. The only problem I have with it is that some missions are tedious and uneccesary, like the one where you guide the transport plane through the radar field.
