Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Ace Combat: The Belkan War is the latest chapter in the acclaimed Ace Combat franchise on PlayStation 2, widely considered the definitive arcade-style aerial combat series. Serving as a prequel to the previous PlayStation 2 release, The Belkan War will answer questions surrounding the dramatic conflict fought in Ace Combat: Squadron Leader. A whole host of new game features have also been introduced, to provide an even more exciting and immersive dog fighting experience for rookie Ace Combat pilots and seasoned aces alike. Contest varied missions as you battle invading forces and the fate of Ustio and its people hangs in the balance.

With a choice of more than 30 licensed aircraft you have the opportunity to fly the world's most elite modern fighters and experience the thrill of dog fighting. Waiting to face you is a range of enemy squadrons, each led by rival ace pilots with distinctive personalities and tactics. As the plot evolves, these aces are interviewed retrospectively about your flying style and the impact you have on the course of the war. The result is compelling blend of action and drama that no potential ace could resist.

This is one of the best games I have ever played. I loved the previous two, and I was expecting a similar performance from this one, and I was not disappointed. The graphics are brilliant, they really do make it worth playing. The music is amazing, some of the best I have heard in a game. The story is brilliant, a really gripping plot that really makes u want to play on. The enemy ace squadrons are brilliant, and as each one fights in a different way (the tactics are the same as used by the corresponding aircraft in real life) each time you play will be differant. The multiplayer is quite frankly amazing. And the unlockable planes are sooo worth it. Overall, this is one of my favorite games ever. I love playing it over and over again.

Decent console flight/combat sims are a rarity but somehow the Ace Combat series has managed to produce the best example for both the PSOne and PS2. It's done that by carefully treading the line between arcade style handling and more serious sim better than any of its rival alternatives. It's a formula which works and so, as expected, Ace Combat (Zero): The Belkan War sticks rigidly to this trusted template. Like the previous games on the PS2: AC4 and AC5, it shamelesly borrows missions from it's own back catalogue but, even for those who realise it, still makes them different enough to be entertaining, So what has changed from it's immediate predecessor AC5? The wingmen feature has been toned down, thankfully, with much less of the fatuous chit-chat that almost ruined whole sections of the game. You still issue commands in the same simple way although the wingman's usefulness in most missions remains debatable. But it's something that adds interest to the gameplay and a real sense that you're not alone during the combat. Other than that very little has altered. For a few missions you can refuel/rearm/change weapons, a return to that popular feature from AC4. But apart from a few tweeks to the presentation of the menus and some minor but interesting additions to the rewards/unlockables for good performance, it's all very familar stuff. The only thing veterans will notice of any significance is that on Normal difficulty it has, at last, become dangerous. AC has always been too easy for most UK gamers' taste on the default setting. In this game you are going to get shot down if you fly too casually. Beginners need not worry as there are easier settings and a novice controller set up too.

Amazing game, cant-put-it-down storyline, many aircrafts & weapons, Exciting Missions, Cool idea of enemy squadrons with names, Mercenary Gauage gives more interest.

One downside - Very, Very Short, you can retry the story with the new planes & weapons that are unlockable, and you can change the mercenary gauge between - Soldier, Mecernary and Knight which gives a little change in the missions. But, the missions are still overall the same and once you have found out the story line, the game just isnt as good.

The game is really fun to play splitscreen with someone.

Overall - Amazing game with gripping storyline, but too short

For years, I yearned to play this game again; I was somewhat sceptical that it was possibly in fact just nostalgia that made me think well of it. With Ace Combat 6 a bit of a let down and Assault Horizon looking like a damp squib, I decided to get a copy of this game to satisfy my craving for an aerial combat game. Missions are much more varied than in 6, with far fewer special weapons forcing more reliance on standard missiles and the gun. More enemy aces and a far deeper story line that subsequent playthroughs and a few years more of maturity have helped shine all the more. Much larger, more varied selection of aircraft than 6, with a memorable soundtrack and art style that make it stand out for me among the Ace Combat games.
Only criticisms I could raise against it are that its fairly short compared to previous and subsequent games (although far less tedious) and the dialogue can be somewhat cheesy at times. Else, an exceptional game!

Ace Combat: The Belkan War once again takes us into familiar dogfighting territory and once more the Ace Combat series does not dissapoint!

With new control refinements such as the removal of autolevel ( which nobody used ) better enemy AI, the ability to select a precise target over the normal skipping through them and better control over your wingman the game gives you much more in the choices in how you tackle missions!

Having said that, the best news is that enemy Ace Squadrons, each with their own tactics and flying styles, differing missions that effect the story path and different enemy responses depending on your flying style give the game huge replay value!

If you enjoyed Ace Combat 4 or 5, this is definately one to add to the collection as the combination of music, action, jetfuel and high octane combat really have distracted me from everything else!

Very exciting game with a nice blend between simulation and arcade like gameplay. The game has massive replay value as the aces that you fight and the flight tactics of enemies change through the second play through.
