Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (Xbox 360)

 

In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, the last action you take is not to participate in a thrilling dogfight, or to victoriously soar through the clouds in an F-14 Tomcat. No. The very last thing you do in this airborne action game is to press a button to...

it's the job of you, playing as William Bishop primarily (but also some other characters, including a bomber pilot and helicopter pilot or gunner), to participate as a leader in the U.N. strike-force leveraged against this threat. One interesting...

Graphically-speaking, the aircraft are modeled with a high level of detail – they are all beautifully-rendered. When you turn the jet left and right, you see the appropriate flaps working and lifting or falling. Put on the air brakes and you’ll see...

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will likely have a polarizing effect on their intended audience; the mainstream will praise its accessibility and over-the-top action, while genre enthusiasts will bemoan the simple controls and lack of depth.

Aces High.

Awesome jet fighter action with stupendously great models; military shooter-influenced design; innovative dogfighting and ground attack mechanics; great-looking and highly detailed plane models; comprehensive multiplayer offering; abundant content

Gameplay is ultimately shallow and somewhat repetitive by its arcade nature; long-winded and tiresome missions that wear out their ability to generate tension; timed escort missions can be frustrating; clunky helicopter controls; terrible screenwriting

How exactly do you go about reinventing modern aerial combat? Ace Combat: Assault Horizon has its work cut out when it comes to being trying something new and immediate. Its history built is upon the smoke trails of ranged missile dogfights and enemy...

Great mission diversity ; Action is intense ; Online modes are fun ; Series feels fresh again

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon ends that cycle as developers Project Aces merge all the essential elements into the best product in town. Simply put, Assault Horizon is seat-of-the-pants action from start to finish, with good tension, a satisfying level...

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon goes for a more accessible approach, but does it come at the cost of alienating fans?

I’m not the biggest Ace Combat fan, so maybe that’s why the changes in Assault Horizon intrigued me. It’s not as well polished as previous games, but this new step is more interesting than if it had been yet another Ace Combat game. Dogfights are...
