Summary: Ace Combat 4 Distant Thunder is okay, however it takes just a little time to get used to what Aircraft/Weapons systems to use for each mission.Have not experienced playing with additional players which I suppose would make this game much more exciting.
Summary: Ace Combat 4 was the first Ace Combat game for the PS2 and the mold from which the sequels were created. Depending on your prefences and from which end of the franchise you started, Ace Combat 4 ranges from truly "great" to simply "good".
Summary: This Ace Combat Title is the best yet !!..all the reviewers have covered it in great detail,and all i can add to their comments is that this game is excellent and is money well spent.Easy to play,and at times you become totally immersed in this game.I highly commend this game.
Excerpt: It might as well be the real thing. This game is one of the best flight simulators on the Playstation since it rose to power over all the other consoles on the earth. Basically this game incorporates the best aircraft in the world and puts them and you (the pilot) in a fictional war torn world.
Pros: Extremly acurate aircraft and weapon systems . Producers have certainly done their home work
Cons: Terrain is pretty vague at times and the two player is rather dull
Summary: The PS2 games library is flooded with beat em ups & driving games, but where are all the flight sims? The console is more than capable of handling the high powered graphics that are demanded by the genre.
Probably the best flight sim graphically I've ever seen!

Summary: I don't agree that Ace Combat 5 is better. The replays are far better in Ace Combat 4. In fact, I would recommend getting both without hesitation if you've even a passing fancy for flight sims combat and speed.
Summary: This is a truly good game. It has an interesting plot line, good controls, exciting missions and radio chatter from both allies and enemies. However, if you want that, get the next game, Ace Combat Squadron Leader (Also known as Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. It has all this and more.
Summary: There relly is no other combat flight game on the PS2 as can match Ace Combat 4. It's ease of gameplay and a brilliant array of aircraft and weapons makes it one of the most exciting and contagious games on the PS2 - can't wait until Ace Combat 5 comes out!
