I am kinda digging the tankers going to play Kelly's Heroes behind enemy lines. The rest of the cutscenes are just kinda....eh. I can barely stand to listen to melissa monologue.To me the magic ingredient in an Ace combat story is just how campy it all is, it feel like I'm watching a Micheal Bay movie trough the lens of Japanese dev. AC6 turn down the camp and tried to make more serious, but the writer just don't have the necessary chops for it. Instead of it being all about how freaking awesome your character is at flying plane it's about some kid stuck in a castle and teh event happening in the mission you do almost don't matter.
You're running out of AC game, if you have a PSP ace combat X was decent. Otherwise you can get a fan translation of AC3 to run on an emulator, it's really cool since its almost all future plane, would love for them to remake it.
I don't have a PSP. I might try to get AC3 emulated to see what the fuss is about there.
I will admit I did contemplate buying Assault Horizon with the clear expectation is was gonna be awful, and then found out it has been delisted on steam for years(apparently) so I guess not.
Also, I've yet to play Project Wingman which also be on my list.
