2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating Skill-less Nonsense October 27, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played every Ace Combat and this one is a waste of my time. The new Dogfight Mode (DFM) eliminates the need for skilled piloting. When you are close enough to the enemy, you can hit your controller bumpers and the plane goes into an autopilot dogfight on rails. During DFM you attempt to lock-on with a missile or shoot your opponent down with guns. I want to fly the plane, not ride it like a taxi. Also, the shift to the real world, oppose to the Eurasia Ace Combat universe added nothing to a fairly boring story. Also, the typical Ace Combat surreal super weapon (Jet Super Fortress, Island Attack Base, Death Star Run) was not there. You end up fighting something that we could actually have right now. The helicopter, AC-130 and Blackhawk gunner levels were unnecessary. All the imagination and surprise is gone from this iteration. I'm not into Online Multi-Player so I have no opinion on that. Buy every Ace Combat, but this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ace Combat's New Coke moment - Boring & Annoying. October 14, 2011
By Phoenix
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The New Coke moment at NAMCO: Take a winning formula and screw it up! Why take a risk with a winning formula? Why try to fix something that is not broken? If you have a new idea, why not produce a new game with that new idea and leave the winning stuff alone? Very elementary Mr. Watson!

First off, I was expecting Ace Combat.. the well known, true and tested success story. But bigger and better. With more aircrafts, with more missions, better online play, better graphics and sounds, better replay options... More aircraft carrier landings, more team work. more options of how to play the game ., solo or team work. a better and mature Ace Combat. I Got none of this..instead I got a new game that seems like a dumbed down version Hawk/Apache.

The impact Ace Combat for the PS2 had on me was amazing. I loved the AC in PS2 and then I went on to MS flight sim..and then got my Pvt Pilot license for real. I went on to get my Multi engine Rating and trained in Trail draggers (Citaberia and American decathlon). I even got to fly some old WW II aircrafts (Steerman) for real.. All because of Ace Combat on PS2 that started it all.

Then these blokes signed on to MS on Xbox and dumped us. Now, after all these, I was all excited about the AC series coming back to PS3.

Last night I played with it for a couple of hrs...and today I did the same for a couple of hrs and my initial impression is one of disappointment.

The initial mission and campaign was just drudgery of point shoot, turn, point shoot... turn point shoot. What about the thrill of flying an aircraft? Where is that? None. I felt like I was flying a giant air balloon or something. Yes. Yes, this was after maximizing the sensitivity to its max of 3 (Sensitivity level 1,2, 3..ooooh, how thrilling).

2.0 out of 5 stars Too different from previous titles October 16, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This game tries too hard to be action packed.
It forces you to follow invincible planes to through scripted paths so they can die in a dramatic fashion.
The 3rd person camera sucks (cockpit view is better)
The new attack chopper levels/on rails minigun levels are not fun at all.

I hear some people enjoy this game but I am just not having fun with it. Every mission feels like a chore.

Ace combat is one of my favorite series, and I am saddened that this is what will probably be the either last Ace Combat game on a home console, or the format of other Ace Combats to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars HAWX Clone November 10, 2011
By Richard
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
As a huge fan of the previous Ace Combat games, this game is a severe disappointment, to the point, I stopped playing 2/3rds of the way through and stopped. It took most of the things that used to work well and changed them, but didn't bother fixing any of the older problems, creating a game that is as far from the "original" AC games as the new Stars Wars movies are from the original trilogy.

To give a concise summary of the game, it seems like a failed and desperate attempt to be a HAWX clone, rather than a fitting member of the original franchise that HAWX itself is a clone of.

More detailed however, the most glaring problem with the game is that you have to play it exactly a certain way. If you want to succeed in air to air combat, you have to use the new DFM system; if you want to accomplish the ground assault missions, you have to use their new ground attack system. There's no thinking though things, it's simply playing the game the way the developer wants you to play it, not the way you want to. Even getting away from attacking planes requires you to use their new "counter-move" system.

Even beyond that, this game is flawed, suffering from incompetent wingmen to enemies with a serious "every enemy wants to attack you" problem. Unlike AC6 where you could direct your wingmen to cover you or attack your target, there's nothing here to control your wingmen. Have a guy on your tail and you're having trouble shaking him? Tough luck, you're on your own.

Essentially, any air-to-air mission will result in good amount of trying to dodge missiles while wondering why your wingman is off flying in circles. The only time I ever noticed any allied plane taking out a target was during cinematics (and there are oh so many of them).
