If only it was a PC game, I would buy it.

Ace Combat is a console series, it has never come to PC and it never will. It was actually a PSX series and I was surprised when Namco made it exclusive to 360 :P

Anyway I haven't played a AC game in a while and I am a huge fan, day 1 purchase for me.

Hardly a PC or Console game... looks more like a cabinet on-rails experience than any attempt to a sim game.

What? Its not a rail shooter....there is some emphasis on close air combat but I think its optional

This site is not for console games only. There is a lot of screenshots and videos of PC exclusive games like Trackmania 2, Arma 3, Witcher 2 etc. And there is also videos and screens of the PC version of multi-platform games like BF3 and Deus Ex: HR etc.

Graphics look great, but it's been a loooong time since I have cared about AC. Everything about the game just feels so automatic to me. Start with your aircraft already in the air, line up behind enemy, fire exactly 2 heat seaking missiles, watch them blow up the same way, repeat for 38 times, end mission in the air.

If they were to make a sim style option where you actually had to take off and land, and had challenges like landing on a moving carrier, I would be all over it. I could spend days just practicing carrier landings on games like IL-2 and Pacific Fighters. The physics in games like those make them infinitely replayable. I doubt AC will ever be anything more than an arcadey shootem-up though.

And that is all it is supposed to be, all it ever has been and all it strives to be. Your complaints are akin to wishing burnout had pit stops, realistic handling and engine tuning options. It isnt a sim, isnt trying to be a sim. So why wish for such things?

If you want a flight sim, play a flight sim. Let AC be AC, in all its simplistic, arcadey action glory.

LOL, so it is completely outrageous to want to be able to take off and land an aircraft in a game in which you pilot aircraft? Oh yeah, and those features you so despise were actually in some of the old school AC games, so I don't think it would be that crazy to want them to be in AH.

BTW, Project Aces themselves describe the series as "hybrid arcade and simulation experience", so I don't think adding a bit of depth for those of us who might want it would hurt you in any way. Obviously you would be able to skip the parts like landings that aren't arcade-y enough for you...

You guys should watch this and hopefully it will explain everything:

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (3 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (6 Hours ago)
