Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War (PlayStation 2)


In 2001, Namco's Ace Combat series of flight combat games hit a high point with Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies, which was the series' first installment on the PlayStation 2. Featuring incredible visuals, responsive action that captured the thrill of...

If you have ever played an Ace Combat game, you should already know what to expect from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. It's a good simulation-looking flight game with an arcade feel. On top of that, it has absolutely stunning graphics and an interesting...

Ace Combat 5


It takes a pretty good game for me to get excited about finishing it nowadays; either the game is too easy, I don't care about the characters, the plot is boring, or I am unpleasantly surprised to find that game is ending so abruptly. Well, I just...

If you liked Wing Commander, Crimson Skies or any other of the flight combat games, you need to get this game now. Even with the PS2 controller it's still good fun. It's EXCELLENT fun with the flight stick, but it's also $130 plus tax for that...

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War brings us the same great action we've come to expect from the franchise. If blowing things up in a jet and really gorgeous visuals are for you, but you can't be bothered with the details of true flight sims, then the Ace...

Namco hits the skies of the PlayStation 2 once again with their latest aerial combat title.

Ace Combat 5 is a worthy successor to the Ace Combat series in almost every respect. Fans of the series will love this game and many more may yet fall to its charm. The game's one major flaw is its lack of multiplayer options. However, if you are a...

Ace Combat 5 The Unsung War Review


Fighting in an aircraft never felt so real….

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War is a game that should not be missed during this holiday rush of games that is now upon us. This game is drop dead gorgeous, has a good sound track, and is an absolute blast to play. If you see this game in stores, you owe...

Namco's latest Ace may not innovate much, but maybe it doesn't have to.

Good old Ace Combat action; more missions, more planes; minor improvements

Radio chatter confusing at times; many new features gimmicky

Expert review by:

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War


Roar with the best arcade flight title on the market.

In all actuality, Ace Combat 5 falls short in one major category, multiplayer mode. There is no split screen or online action to be had. Ace Combat 5 is a solo affair, which is indeed a shame, as a multiplayer mode would have added extra months to the...
