Summary: The Ace combat series is really the best flying game out there. The handling of planes is smooth and natural. And while dog fighting strategy becomes relatively important on higher difficulties, it is not a prerequisite to be successful at the game. Levels provide a good balance of challenge and playability. Story line is good enough to keep the gamer interested while still focusing on incredible graphics and game play.
Summary: Great fun with my Logitech Joystick/ Throttle controller. lots of action, really nice graphics on my 55" LED tv. good replayability. I am not looking for a historical flight sim, just wanted action, various levels of difficulty, and something you can play more than once. nice game, for me its about 3.5-4 stars, for some more die hard sim gamers, probably only 2.5-3.. well worth the money in any case.
Summary: I remember first purchasing AC6 around the time it was released. Being fresh off of AC4 and AC5 my expectations were very high. First off the visuals and game play are superb. AC6 delivers true to the ace combat franchise. With fast paced action, very involved missions, and intriguing interactions between your virtual squad mates it will not let you down. Game play is like the previous Ace combats.
Summary: This was in my opinion the best Ace Combat they've made. Yes the voice acting (english) hurts, but hey, I didn't buy an audio book. The controls were balanced right, and felt real. That's something that the newest one, Assault Horizon didn't capture. This game felt like a simulator, the newest one, an arcade game. The campaign was lengthy and that's a good thing, because there's nothing else to do after that. Yes there's multiplayer, but no one is playing.
Summary: I purchased this game because the first time I went back to play AC04 and AC5 after getting an HDTV, I cringed at how awful they looked on the big screen. I have good memories of both of those old games, and I wanted Ace Combat in HD. However, having heard the negative reaction to Assault Horizon due to mechanics and setting changes, I chose AC6. (I *like* the world of Strangereal.) On the HD front, AC6 delivers.
Summary: I have every Ace Combat game since the AC3, and have enjoyed them all. Ace Combat Zero is my favorite btw... Anywho, I was really looking forard to playing AC6, but I played through once, and have no desire to do so ever again. I wasn't a bad game per se. The graphics were great, the controls smooth and intuitive, the planes were amazing. But the planes are part of the problem. AC6 has by far the fewest aircraft of any of the Ace Combat series.
