Summary: I have played all the Ace Combat games and yes this is hard to adapt to. Think of it as a new branch of a strong tree of games. People bashing it are like me we want more of the same of what we had so far BUT...stop there. Its good. Its hard to beat. I just did right now. I used Ace Combat 6 flight controllers I bought with AC6. Works fine when your in a Jet Fighter. Use controller when your not.
