This game doesn't really have much of a story, but basically you are a pilot who goes by Phoenix. You receive commands and go on missions, and occasionally you have a partner (who is a CPU) join you (The nice thing is that you can choose from a few CPU's your partner). Throughout the missions, your commander and partners tell you what to do and where to go, or you can just follow the arrow. Before each mission, you can customize your plane using money you earned in other missions(like what weapons you want, what you want the paint to look like, etc.)as well as customize the plane your partner. After you complete a mission, you can replay it.
As you can see, this game gives you a lot of choices, but some are not always good. Sometimes, during the game, your commander lets you choose what mission you want to do next. The problem is, with the mission that you don't pick, you can't ever play it unless you replay story mode, which is annoying.
All in all, this game is a great game, and I would recommend it to anyone!
The game is a little short. But a branching story mode with optional missions adds a little replay value.
The story is forgettable. Ace Combat is known for having some really compelling stories, but this is pretty cut and dry. You fight the "rebels" but their motives are never even explored.
The game looks great! The 3D really good too.
Lots of different jets that you can customize and work to unlock new weapons and skins for
Overall the gameplay is solid, the missions are varied and fun.
After the mission you can watch and save cool replays of your mission
The game scores your performance. Leading the player to want to replay the mission to improve their score
Overall for the price and remembering it is just a handheld game. The experience Ace Combat offers is worth the price.
I must admit, getting used to only one stick for flight control was a little difficult at first, as I am used to the "standard" setting for ace combat on the PlayStation 2, but once I got the hang of it (I'd say about the 3rd or 4th mission), it really took off from there, pun not intended.
There are so many planes to fly that some kind of feel similar, but really, it's like comparing french vanilla and vanilla ice cream. They're similar, but different enough to earn a separate label.
Just a heads up, the game can drop in frame rate when things get hairy and a lot of stuff is happening on-screen. I know for some people that's a huge turn-off, and ordinarily, it would be for me, too. But really, I was having too much fun to care. It felt more like a slow-motion camera shot than anything, but that might just be the fun in my eyes.
The game does look really pretty. The ground models are as basic as ever, but the planes are gorgeous. 3D is fun to fly in, if you can handle it. It's even more fun using the cockpit view with 3D on, but I personally liked using the 3rd person view with the one stick control. I think it helped my brain to transition from one plane style to another (i.e. Ace Combat on PS2 to this), but it defiantly was a fun thing to do every so often. The 3D did seem to cause the frame rate to dip a little more easily than when it was turned off, but the main reason I turned it off was to prolong battery life. Otherwise, I would have left it on.
All that to say, definitely a fun game and worth a purchase. Highly recommend it.
This has wonderful graphics and sound for a mobile game. Overall the scenery, lighting and sounds are beautiful. The game controls well, and the new system of rolling and yawing the aircraft was great once I got the hang of it. Several new maneuvers were added as well, like high G turns and the new "close-in" technique, used in a pinch to whip the plane around and catch the enemy off guard with the push of a button.
As far as the story goes, this Ace Combat entry dropped the ball. In the previous games, I was blown away by some of the plot twists and the epic feel, but in Legacy, the story is flat and vague. Basically, it involves fighting some rebels without really knowing their cause, just "Hey these guys did a bad thing, go blow up their planes." and it just doesn't grab hold of you like Ace Combat 5 or Zero did. For a mobile Ace Combat game, this was an excellent try, but it's predictable and gives no real satisfaction at the end. With that said, it's still a lot of fun to play.
To sum up, this game is awesome. You have the option to customize your plane colors and patterns, there are several special planes like the F6F-5 Hellcat from the WW2 era, the graphics are good and the action is intense. The story was a bit canned, but story isn't everything in a game. Legacy makes up for it with solid action and lots of missions and challenges to keep a regular player going for a few days straight.
Final score, 4/5! This game isn't perfect, but it is FUN, and sometimes that's all we need.
