4.0 out of 5 stars Great arcade action, October 28, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Namco Ace Combat 4 (Video Game)
I was brought up on the Falcon/Jane flight simulators for the PC. I wish the reviews that I read had mentioned the following:
1. For a single player, there is only one mode of play. There are 18 relatively easy missions to complete. The average person will probably wrap this game up in 7-10 days of casual play. Thus, this game probably isn't the best value out there.
2. This is not a simulation -- it's an arcade game. If you're expecting full control over all aspects of the game, you may be disappointed. For example, you're not expected to land or takeoff. Each plane can hold 60+ missiles. The radar/weapons system are also simplistic.
With that in mind, there are several neat features of the game. The planes are very detailed and everything looks very life-like. The computer AI is pretty good; some of the opponents are excellent pilots. There is a wide selection of weapons, and each plane has its own distinct strengths and weaknesses.
Overall, there's lots of obvious additions that the programmers could have included (more modes of play/better replay mode). However, the game is fun to play and it looks great. I would recommend this game for everyone except someone looking for a true flight combat simulator.
