Danger takes wing again, as Namco's breakneck flight simulation launches again for more harrowing dogfights and critical mission strikes in Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies - Greatest Hits. But this assignment requires a more powerful arsenal than ever beforeand with the overpowering might of the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system locked and loaded, Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies aims to deliver the most firepower yet in the series.
This game offers intense aerial action in a futuristic setting. After an asteroid strikes Earth, surviving nations battle to maintain their power. You are a pilot with ISAF (Independent States Allied Force) who lost your parents to the war. With the ISAF pinned back, it is up to you to turn the tide of battle. For our ace pilot, though, the conflict is more personal than professional, as you seek vengeance for the death of your family, especially from the pilot who led the sortie that killed your parents.

The best way to describe this game is to call it technical perfection. The in-flight graphics are the most perfect I have ever seen in ANY air-combat game, pc or console. The load times are non-existant. And needless to say, if you liked the previous voice-overs, music, menus and graphical mission readouts from the previous games, you'll be in heaven. And even when you die (and trust me you will), you can just choose restart from a menu and go right into the action.
Okay, so the graphics and presentation are great. But we all know no game is worth playing that doesn't have great gameplay. While there aren't many missions in this game, the missions that are to be found are absolutely outstanding, with changing mission objectives, and bonuses to be obtained from destroying special enemies and getting a high score (as a side note, at any time during a mission you can flying back to your aircraft carrier by going past the white dotted lines on the map in order to refill your ammo and repair ALL damage to your craft). And since you have TWO unlockable difficulty levels to beat after you beat the game the first time (I'm currently working on expert and hoping to unlock ace), you'll be playing the same missions over and over. Usually something like that would bug me, but the missions are so darn fun (And the jets you unlock later are so cool) that you won't mind a bit.
This game is no slouch in the audio department either. The sound effects realistic, and the voice-overs from both the enemy, and from your wingmen during the missions are wonderful.
When you are playing this game, it almost feels real. But I doubt flying a real fighter jet would ever be this fun.
There are plenty of planes to choose from and you collect money fast enough to move up to better planes quickly. I like the fact that you can continue from one skill level to the next carrying over planes and money. There are a few missions where one type of plane works better than another might but for the most part you're free to pick your favorite and use it all you want. I've always been a fan of the A-10 Warthog and it's fun to fly with the Maverick missles.
The game isn't extremely difficult and I was able to beat the normal mode in a few days and the hard level in a day. The hardest part was meeting some of the time limits, but once you do a mission a few times you're able to come up with a strategy to beat the time. If I have one complaint it's probably that the game is short but there is so much replayability it's not much of an issue.
The story line is a good one. The cutaway scenes are done like a story board and the art is well done. I like the point of view the story is told through. It builds suspense and slowly comes together over the whole game. It's one of the few game storylines I've really enjoyed.
This game was a great time.
