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...

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Shouldn't be that much of a burden to devs as they iron out the kinks and work out what works and what doesn't. What I worry about is shovelware. That could kill it dead. (38 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Dirt is supposedly incredible, and I can attest to RE7 in VR being amazing and wouldn't play it any other way. I think by drip feeding well implemented VR modes in games is the way to go. (40 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @MikeManiac61: What is the difference in pay-to-play online? i.e. Gold vs Plus (or whatever it's called) (40 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The way to handle VR at the moment is basically what they've been doing for recent titles like Dirt and RE7. Have the main game, but the VR mode as an addition should you desire. That works. (42 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @Tiz: Add Resident Evil 7 and For Honor in there and Halo Wars 2 and Nioh... too many games in literally 4/5 weeks... (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I don't really know how to handle Horizon: ZD, NieR: A and Zelda: BOTW all in the space of a month. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @KORNdog: Only reason why I had PS4 is the variety of exclusives. Besides Halo or Gears, those aren't enough for me to get a Xbone. (9 Hours ago)
