After playing previous Ace Combat games, this for me is definitely up there, good selection of aircraft, good story line, but. The big let down for me is. The lack of maneuver whilst flying the aircraft, ie no barrel roles! all the aircraft wants to do is turn left or right, frustrating whilst in a dog fight.
This is by far the worst game i have ever played on PS3 , I dont think id even pay 5 pounds for this game , The graphics are average , The storyline is very poor and the game play is even worse .
Save your money and wait for something better to be released
Being a fan of the Ace Combat series i wasn't sure what to expect of this one before it came out as it was being hyped up as more of a "demolition derby", and that it might lead away from what the other AC games provided. But i haven't been let down as i think this is a brilliant game. The graphics are great and the planes handle smoothly, pretty good story line behind it as well. Plenty of fighters/bombers/helicopters to choose from with a wide array of weapons to be used.
Overall i'd say that they've done a great job on this, and if this is the final game in the series, they've done it justice.
