Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy might read like a decent (if short) game of Scrabble, it's actually the name of Namco Bandai's upcoming aerial dogfighter, and it looks a lot like this. Containing such fantastic dialogue as "a coup on the day of the treaty signing?!", the trailer does show off some of the game's rather impressive graphics, which we imagine will look even..

i hope they don't over do the motion controls, looks like a rush. this would be an experience in 3d.



Dodger said:

Unless this gets a horrid review and/or doesn't have button controls, this is on my want list. Those graphics look like they would be amazing in 3D. Hope it has a good frame rate. :/

I want to pick between motion controls so sometimes i can play in 3d and sometimes with motion controls!

I so want this so much as I really want to get into an Ace Combat game but Pokemon Rumble comes out the same day and Tales of the Abyss is out next Friday so I might put it off until Jan and hopefully catch it cheap in the sales.

Ace combat indeed!

Well ive just bought this today!!! only for £30 pound and am really impressed with it

Its great game and here's why!

There a story mode with 23 missions in all i believe!

which will give u wide things to do like escort missions and air and ground battles!

Also the game is fully voice acted and though its cheesy at times its nice break instead of having to read text.

The 3D looks great and gives sense of depth. Plus dogfights are intense and exciting and performing special manoeuvres and split second timing to dodge missile's not only look cool but make's you feel like killer pilot!!! "EAT HEART OUT PILOT WINGS" LOL

There are alot real world aircrafts to buy in game all with there own unlockable skins and secondary weapons.

Also aircrafts look very realistic and lighting & weather effects look great so do the explosions and screams of death!! lol

There is Replay value to game to like replaying story mode to get missions that you didnt play first time around. So second play through will be in order to get them all.

Also trying to get an S rank on missions to unlock further planes, S weapons, skin's.

Plus you custom planes with parts like engines, wings, cockpits, armour to increase or decrease planes abilities help you get them S ranks.

There's a challenge mode were you can play - free play story missions, survival or extra mission mode.

And view finder were u can view what u have unlocked and check out medals, music, charaters and watch replays that you can save after each mission to view later.

I just have say there are sum great music tracks in game like orchestra one's:) that really make sum battle's feel quite epic lol

Sadly theres no online features or 2 player which is missed opportunity:(

But never the less game is thrilling and real joy play

and in my opinion it gets a "ACE" rating hehe
