    3.0 out of 5 stars Passable but this is not an Ace Combat game. 14 Oct. 2011
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    As a long standing Ace Combat fan, my first being Ace Combat 2 on Playstation, I have had high hopes for this game but I am somewhat disappointed; gone is the world of Strangereal and in steps Earth; there's no more earning money/credits in missions to buy planes. Instead you are given them meaning there's no real sense of achievement or goal in campaign other than to just find out the story. It is closer to Hawx than the AC of old.

    The story and gameplay so far seems painstakingly influenced by the Modern Warfare series (something the devs themselves admitted). This has annoyed me somewhat since it is ruining games that I have loved up until this point by trying to be "accessible" to a wider audience. I have no problem with making games accessible to more people, but this doesn't mean dumb the controls and gameplay down. The most apparent example of this is the default control mode, literally left moves left and down moves down; no barrel rolling, aileron rolling or performing manouevres (thankfully this can be changed in settings). It's almost impossible to crash with this setting on and there's no challenge whatsoever. Another example of simplified gameplay is the semi scripted dogfighting mode, initated manually when in close range to another jet. This physics-defying mode places the camera into a sort of "over the shoulder" angle for the jet and the computer essentially takes over the path of your aircraft whilst you concentrate on gunning down the enemy ace. Fun on paper but in actuality in this mode you cannot crash, I have seriously aimed for buildings on purpose only to have the computer kick in and guide me away. The mode itself would be good if it didn't just spoonfeed you kills and avoid terrain in an almost quick time event.

    1.0 out of 5 stars dissapointing 20 Jan. 2012
    By annon
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
    modern warfare now with airplanes...
    not ace combat its story is the most generic "russians are bad americans are the saviors of the world" please avoid buying it.
    one of my first games was the original ace combat for the ps1 (japanese import as well) and it was brilliant. belkan war is for me still one of the best games and ace combat 6 is exelent.
    well they decided that a "realistic story" was better so no cool fights any more.
    disappointing and boring would the the only way to describe it to any ace combat fan who thinks about buying it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A good game, but its not Ace Combat. 17 Oct. 2011
    By Thomas
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    I'm a huge fan of the Ace Combat series so I understand where people are coming from when people say that this game isn't Ace Combat.. The things that everyone loved about the past games were the unrealistic stories, super weapons and of course the realistic flying! It made the game a one of a kind am I right?

    But now the good people at Namco have decided the mix it up a bit by setting the game in the boring real world and making the flying as unrealistic as possible... Why? Who knows.. Maybe they want to reach out to a new audience, I mean they are calling this Ace Combat reborn.

    Is it a bad game? No. Is it something Ace Combat fans will like? Probably not. Is this game right for you? Maybe, if your the kind of person that is laid back when it comes to gaming, who plays Guitar hero and games like Black Ops on easy and still feel like you rock because of the flashing colours and endless explosions then yes I think you would like this game. However if your a fan of the older Ace Combat games then I would wait until the game is cheaper before trying it for yourself.

    Hope this was helpful.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Return 16 Oct. 2011
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I have to disagree with the other review - i think the game is awesome. It is set in a real world setting and the cities etc look cool. Its a shame yes, that the previous series world is not here. I would really like to be Mobious 1 again! However the moment i started playing i was smiling! the music, the graphics, the adrenaline rush it gives is what i wanted. THere are on rails sections, helicopter sections and it breaks up the dogfighting. Now the new dog fighting mode takes a bit of getting used too but once you do you will be trailing the SOB's and reversing and counter attacking like second nature. The story is ok but i dont really play Ace combat games for the story! i want to be a pilot shooting planes. That is what i get and then some. If you like the previous games in the series then you will love this. HAWX didnt do it for me and i am a loyal fan to the series. Give the demo a go. If you like that you'll love this.

    A very fun exciting game that i really enjoy and would highly recommend

    4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the moaners - it's great! 3 April 2012
    Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I took a gamble when I bought this, but what ultimately made me decide to buy Ace Combat Assault Horizon - Limited Edition (PS3) were the reviews where people had been saying how it wasn't like the old Ace Combat games. I remember playing those games on PSOne and PS2, and being bitterly disappointed that I'd spent money on such boring, cripplingly difficult games.

    Ace Combat Assault Horizon - Limited Edition (PS3) is, thankfully, NOTHING like the Ace Combat games of old.

    It's the kind of game most of us dreamed of one day playing as we used our imagination to make Afterburner feel like Top Gun; It's the kind of game that puts you so perfectly into the moment that you end each mission shaken and with limbs trembling from the G forces; It's a game where the sense of immersion makes the corny plot feel like a work of literary genius.

    Controls, graphics, and gameplay are fantastic, and NOTHING beats cruising at 10,000 feet and guiding a bomb into some terrorists toilet.

    The only reason I DIDN'T give it 5 stars was because it was all over too quickly!

    Get it, you really won't be disappointed.
