Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Square-Go
24 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Ace Combat series has been in the air since 1992 when the franchise first hit the arcades. The games were always a firm favourite within the arcade combat flight simulation genre, but they were always dogged by one or two shortcomings… Ace Combat: Assault Horizon ends that cycle as developers Project Aces merge all the essential elements into the best product in town.

  • Excerpt: Most games like these offer little in the way of a story, instead providing a frame around which the action is built. However, AC:AH provides a surprisingly engaging narrative. There are nice little interludes where the story plays out in between sorties. These are sort of interactive cutscenes: you can move your head and look around but not interact with anything, and there are even quick-time moments. It's a nice touch.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Game Over Online
31 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Waaaaay back when I was just a small Simon, we had a Mac Plus in our house. It was our first computer and kind of a big deal... for me because of a game called Falcon . Falcon was an F-16 flight simulator. I played the hell out of that game as a kid - it was one of my first experiences in gaming. Top Gun was big at the box office and the overly romanticized life of a fighter pilot captured my imagination.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Review

GamingTrend
17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: So every once in a while I get a title and I think “Ahh….man…maybe I should send this to somebody else to handle.” and that thought went through my head with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.  The reason was simple – I didn’t particularly enjoy Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation.  The storyline was painfully stilted and the balancing on combat left a little to be desired.

Test: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

xboxfront.de
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Die letzten Jahre waren für Fans von Air-Shootern sehr gute Jahre. Zwar wurde man nicht mit neuen Spielen bombardiert (Flug-Wortwitz Nummer 1), dennoch erschienen in regelmäßigen Abständen hochwertige Vertreter. Ganz vorne landeten (Flug-Wortwitz Nummer 2) meist Spiele mit „Ace Combat“ im Namen. Auch Ace Combat: Assault Horizon hat uns virtuelle Kampfpiloten sehr gut gefallen, besonders angetan waren wir von einigen intelligenten Neuerungen.
  • Pros: + spannende und abwechslungsreiche Missionen, + sehr actionreiches Gameplay, + sinnvolle Neuerungen, + detaillierte Flugzeugmodelle, + dicke Explosionen und Effekte, + stimmige Musikuntermalung, + spaßiger Koop-Modus, - klischeehafte Story (Nato gut, Russen böse), - Gebäude wirken oft wie Spielzeugfiguren, - Schwierigkeitsgrad ist gelegentlich etwas unausgewogen

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

  • Summary: Wanneer we denken aan flightsims die het niet altijd even nauw met de realiteit nemen, dan is er een reeks die altijd in onze gedachten komt. Inderdaad, we hebben het over de populaire Ace Combat-reeks die al vele jaren lang één van de beste arcade flightsim spelervaringen aanbiedt. Bijna twintig jaar geleden zag de reeks het levenslicht in de arcadehallen en niet lang daarna maakten ook consolegamers kennis met Ace Combat op de eerste PlayStation.
  • Pros: Explosieve actie, Veel vernieuwing, Knappe omgevingen, Leuke multiplayer
  • Cons: Verhaal kon beter, Nieuwe features passen niet in multiplayer

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

  • Conclusion: Per portare avanti una serie, c'è solo una strada da seguire: andare più forte, più in alto e dare di più. Con un simulatore di volo come Ace Combat, i primi due punti sono automaticamente assicurati. La domanda è: quanto "di più" il produttore Kazutoki Kono e il suo team sono riusciti a dare? Già dalla prima missione sopra il deserto dell'Africa orientale, è chiaro che questo non è propriamente un simulatore di volo: è un gioco d'azione con gli aerei.
  • Pros: Ottimi ambienti, enorme selezione di aerei disponibile
  • Cons: Storia un po' troppo approssimativa
