So, anyone here that have played or just even heard of the Ace Combat games? If not, it’s essentially a long-running video game series where you control different aircraft while fighting for either your country or for money (depends on which game in the series).
Personally, I was introduced to this series since 2011 when Ace Combat: Assault Horizon was released, which I thought was pretty good (although it’s a controversial title among most of the fans, since it’s so different from previous games). However, it wasn’t until I played Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War around a year later that I counted myself as a “true” fan (since Ace Combat 5 is regarded as the best game in the entire series by most fans). It had pretty much everything from exciting gameplay, epic story and a phenomenal soundtrack.
If you’ve never played Ace Combat before and have a PS3, if you wish to try it out you can download the latest game Ace Combat Infinity since it’s a free-to-play title. It’s actually pretty fun, although it has a pretty annoying microtransaction model where your play time is limited unless you pay. But if you don’t mind just playing for a little bit each session, you shouldn’t have a lot of problems.
Whether you’ve played any Ace Combat games or not, feel free to discuss this (at least in my opinion) underrated video game franchise!
