I really enjoyed the previous title on the PS2. The follow up has taken every element that worked, and expanded into some new dimensions, making it even richer for wannabe dog fighters and WWII pilots out there. The graphics are better, but still not nearly maxing out what the PS3 can do though. I love the arcade type gameplay, as it doesn't take long to master, but is challenging enough to demand attention and learning throughout. Just try ACE, and tell me its easy! This is NOT a game for sim freaks out there though. But if you love a game that you can pick up relatively quickly, and start smashing up some planes, buildings, boats, cars, and basically anything that moves - whilst flying at warp speed through sharp turns and barrel rolls - DO IT! Love it, and enjoyed the whole game.
