Forget about H.A.W.X 2, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW!

  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon FTW

    So that H.A.W.X 2 AC-130 trailer failed pretty badly in my opinion. Today I found this trailer for the new Ace Combat series – Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and let me tell you, my eyes were as wide and big as they could be while watching it. Just jaw dropping!

    What’s so special you ask? At first I kind of expected it to be yet another arcade shooter from the series but as the producer points out in the trailer, this is a “rebirth” of the series because the game play is different now. And I think the difference is why I’m so in love with it. Based on the trailer, you are now interacting with your plane and your enemies closer. When you blow up the enemy fighters with missiles or the machine gun, you will get to see pieces flying off, sort of like the human dismemberment from say, Dead Space or Dead Rising.

    From what I saw in the trailer, looks like you will also get a few slow motion dog fights and being chased by enemies where you actually get to see the enemy chasing after you from the third person camera view. AND, looks like you get to fly and blow things up in a helicopter as well????

    I mean, wow, just wow. I was literally wowing for the entire trailer from start to finish. I hope there’s a TBA soon as I will be getting this one first day no doubt. Its been too long for us Ace Combat fans to wait for the next installment for the Ace Combat series.

    Agree with a lot of what the editor said. I’ve beaten both HAWX 1 and 2 on elite. Hawx 2 seemed to take a step to the side rather than a step forward. First off it gets stuck during download at 17%. Its the most common question about the game on google..look it up. The only thing that improves is the flight handling and a few fun features like black hawk surveillance,first person guided missiles, and a half decent AC-130 level, and you can stall the plane without turning the auto-piolet off. Still random glitches in the middle of missions, poor graphics close to the ground,an unimproved child like targeting system, and basically giant cluster-f**ks during aerial combat make the game unrealistic and just another anyone can play arcade game. Does that mean I want a flight simulator made for fat kids to hack whatever they can because they can. No, we want a relatively easy arcade simulator with more realistic combat features and hopefully Ace Combat delivers like it looks like it will. I’ll be standing in front of you with my pre-order slip.

    I will love Ace Combat from begin to end. This one will kill HAWX finaly, and there’s much more action and i’ll hope this will be a new challange for the Old Ace Combat fans (like me :D ) and a taste of Ace Combat for new fans :P
    I really want to get this and im happy that Ace Combat is back on Playstation. I Pre-orderd it already :D

    I think HAWX was long dead anyway :) Should check out the actual game play from E3, you even get to fly helicopters this time. But I think the zooming in and out during dog fights will take sometime to get used to.
