4.0 out of 5 stars Ace Combat 2.5, 23 Feb. 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This game is a blatant rip off of the early Ace Combat games and is great fun because of that. If Assault Horizon is worth on average 3 stars, this is worth 4. At least it doesn't feel like the Emperor's New Afterburner. The selection of jets is quite curious, as some favourites like the F-15, Tornado, MiG-25 and Su-27 aren't present. An innovation that impressed me was the use of Thrust Vectoring. It may not have been implemented as well as it should have, but it's amusing, all the same, especially when you're heading to the ground at top speed and pull off what would be an aircraft shattering manoeuvre. For it to have a Jane's license and not actually follow the stats of real life is pretty much unforgiveable, like the 1500mph A-10 which has amongst the worst armour rating in the game! If you were massively disappointed by Assault Horizon, like combat jets and hanker for the good old days of Ace Combat, you may well get some enjoyment from this game, as I did. It is incredibly short and only takes up 1.2gb of memory, so perhaps should have been released on XBLA, instead. Finally, the scenery is actually convincing, not some flat, cardboard like environments. Burn your copy of Assault Horizon and get this to replace it.

Thanks for the AC-AH comparisons! I've played all the AC games right through from when it was Air Combat and I'm really not all tat keen on Assault Horizon at all; I wish I'd kept my old PS2 now instead of buying the Xbox because now I only have two Ace Combat games... and one of those is AH. Doh!
I'm seriously considering buying this now because of your review...hope you don't let me down!
Thanks, again!
