Namco just sent us these images and an in-game video of Ace Combat VI, a game you have certainly already played a perhaps appreciated thanks to the very good E3 demo.

No, but it plays fine with standard controller.

This game has no sense of speed though.

there is a special box set which comes with hori flight sticks, and when you are 1000s of feet in the air, there is no sense of speed

The only problem I had with the demo are the rudder controls in conjunction with the acceleration controls are a little skewed. It should be changed so that it remembers the last acceleration that was present, so you weren't forced to keep the accell trigger held down. That helps much more in fast battles.

God I love this series to death! Ace Combat IV was so awesome and I have so many good memories of it. This looks next gen too!! Great work by Namco! Looks amazing XD

For those who have played the demo; can you go through the clouds and see volumetric fogging?

Oahh, it is gorgeus, the best looking flyer ever. Now, if only i could have a sim with such an eye.candy.

This visually does look stunning.

The lighting and colour is astounding.

I've also heard that even at low levels it looks surprisingly detailed. Thumbs up.

the thing i dont like about it is!!!! you dont get the feeling you traveling at high speeds.
looks great but the overal pace of the of the game slow for jet flight game.

Then why are you complaining if you know. Its the one realistic aspect of the game other than the planes themselves.

blured effects like in burnout... lol its supposed to be realistic... now blackouts and redouts yet but burnout style blurs not thank you

and yes i agree the sense of speed at 2000ft isnt going to be much, but if i've got an f16 doing max speed 100ft from the ground i should be feeling the speed

ONE HUGE THING I DISLIKE

I love the 3 views... but wheres the flyby view? i used to love doing that when i wasnt busy killing baddies

i mean if other useless cams are their like the missle cam (hold in the missle button after shooting) then why not the flyby cam... that thing was intense... i forget the old game that used to have it... think it was back on the xbox1

When you are 10km above ground you obviously don't feel speed, but at 1km you actually feel how incredibly fast planes are. I didn't get that feeling from the video.

It looks beautiful, but I can't enjoy it. The only thing I could do right in the demo was nosedive into the ground.
Commented on 2007-07-21 00:21:15
most important question: does it have a free-fly mode?
you know, like flying just for FUN without stupid missions or targets to get to ;)

would be great!

ah, the good old times with interceptor on the amiga <dreams of 80s>
(damn i`m old... hehe) ^_^

This game is a joke, it plays no different than Air Force Delta Storm on Dreamcast damn it!
Commented on 2007-07-21 00:54:09
Games don't usually impress me visually, but those graphics are SICK!
Commented on 2007-07-21 01:14:58
This game seems impressive. could be a buy...

Looks excellent. I love flight sims on the PC and usually strive for as much realism as possible, especially when Im looking like a geek in front of my family with a big daft joystick and a trackir on my head but this title will be my guilty little secret stash of arcade goodness on my 360 :)

the sense of speed really isnt all that far off, look at this video, considering this is an arcade game, id say its plenty good enough
Commented on 2007-07-21 14:24:30
haha that youtube vid is great, epecially the near miss with the truck LOL!

This one had me laughing http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=c_xm3P0l3n8

Honestly does seem rather slow and boring at hign altitude, but the part where they shot down the bridge, that seemed pretty realistic speed wise.

The graphics are really impressive, it looks better than flight simulator X

    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (4 Hours ago)
