The Portable Project 12 – M.A.C.H.: Modified Air Combat Heroes
18 February 2013
Excerpt: M.A.C.H. is one of those unfortunate games that sport impressive production values, smart design and a good difficulty curve without ever getting any traction at retail. Heck, I don't even know another PSP owner who's considered playing it, let alone brought it home from a shop. It's too bad really, because past the generic-looking box art and incredibly dull title, there's a pretty sweet experience to be had. I'm not one for racing games in general, but M.A.C.H.
Excerpt: Whereas the majority of racing games are road based affairs, with the occasional exhilarating jump being the closest you get to the heavens, M.A.C.H (or to give the games its full title: Modified Air Combat heroes) plonks you into a plane and sends you soaring through the skies. Races have you battling for first position (now that‘s a surprise!
PSP Review - 'M.A.C.H.: Modified Air Combat Heroes'
28 August 2007
Summary: M.A.C.H. (Modified Air Combat Heroes) is the PSP's first flight combat/racing game, becoming outlaw pilots and competing in deadly aerial contests of skill, speed and weaponry in this sky-high race to own the air.
Excerpt: Modified Air Combat Heroes are outlaw pilots competing in deadly aerial contests of skill, speed and weaponry. This is your opportunity to annihilate the competition in this sky-high race to own the air. Arcade mode is the quickest way to get into the air and race or fight... Choose the type of challenge you want to fly and the course you wish to try.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Modified Air Combat Heroes (or MACH) for the PSP has both a ludicrous name and storyline. Remember the game Rollcage for the PC? That’s pretty much what MACH is, except instead of racing around tracks, you’re flying through ravines. Though the racing is at near warp speed, no sooner do you begin to settle in and enjoy the game, you’ll find that you’ve actually finished it.
Excerpt: M.A.C.H. is essentially the love child of Top Gun and The Fast & The Furious, pitting players in the controls of high-powered military grade jets as you throw them around tight, weaving courses picking up and using weapons against your opponents in a very Mario Kart fashion. Its essentially a straightforward, arcade flight racer that successfully combines racing and combat together to form an exciting, pick-up-and-play experience that is perfectly suited for a portable...
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: A good attempt at an aircraft based racer. It won't set the world alight but is fun whilst it lasts. With several tiers and different playing modes, that is likely to be for some time.
Excerpt: Modified Air Combat Heroes might not be the most inspirational name for a game, but there's some good solid gameplay in there, making for an addictive and satisfying, if not particularly deep, game.
