Not bad for the first modern air combat game for the 360
2 April 2007
Summary: A lot of people are comparing this game to Ace Combat for the PS2 and the two games could not be more different. First off Over G is more of a flight sim. I have heard compliants that there is no feeling of speed, that your plane is like a blimp floating in space.
Summary: Over G is a game I have been looking forward to for quite some while. When it first arived, I was excited to play a next generation flight sim, and was given something that fell short of my expectations.
Summary: The Game is ok. I'd give it a three. pros: graphics are awsome and very detailed. when you run out of ammo or fuel, or your aircraft is damaged, you can land at the base or carrier and reload, refuel, and fix your Aircraft. flight controls are good. the game also has a free flight mode.
Summary: I served four years in the Air Force so I was excited about this game coming out. About time xbox made a modern jet game!!! Now to the game... I was expecting a lot more from it to tell the truth. The graphics are amazing however the gameplay is terrible especially in novice mode.
Summary: This game is great if you reset all of your controlls to actual settings of either ace combat or what ever your preference is, it actually is really enjoyable. I am an aircraft mechanic and this is very close for what the aircraft really look like right down to the way the contrails are created...
Summary: The attempt was there. The technology hit a chaff instead of a direct hit. The controlls are far from a sim, which is what this game tries to achieve. It does use the same japanamation type story and menu's as Ace Combat and others before it. Nothing revolutionary here.
Summary: I really can't believe Ubi put their name on this product. I bought this game because it looked good and I haven't played a game like it since the original "Air Combat" on the PS. It's very similar to that series. I wanted a "flight sim" & it was either this or that awful "Blazing Angels".
Pros: Graphically, it looks good. Various aircraft actually have different flight characteristics. Full mission replays are cinematic quality. Scenery looks great. Unlocking new jets comes pretty frequently, but you'll find yourself using the same one or two regularly.
Cons: If anime junkies tried to make a 360 jet combat game, this would probably be it. Quirky English translations. Typical electric guitar ballad-type theme songs. The games characters are represented by 2D drawings. After you beat a mission, you have to select "End Game" or else the replay plays over...
Summary: I tried very hard to hate this game. The $65CDN price tag raises expectations of a highly polished game. This was not it. A rough interface and poorly translated instructions made for a poor first impresssion. As i learned the game, I steadily grew more addicted.
