Ace Combat Impressions

   0
I have never liked Flight/Racing games. I cant seem to figure out what is so appealing about Forza 2. I played it and I though it was just like every other racing sim I have played. But when I downloaded the Ace Combat 6 demo onto my xbox I was met with an amazing experience that left me wanting for more. Right when I started it up I was amazed by the graphics, they were breathtaking. I died pretty quickly into the demo, I was doing a maneuver close to the ground and my plane crashed into the ground. This sort of thing is what makes me not like flying games I always die by crashing into the ground. But I didn't stop playing because I was having a surprisingly fun time.



The mission puts me in the cockpit of one of many fighter planes. During the first mission I had to fend off some unknown invaders. I kept on playing and kept on dieing from hitting the ground or another object. I did not quit though because every time I died I was getting better and better and killing more planes. It wasn't till around the 6th time I died though that I realized I had a special weapon that I could use besides my missiles. This ended up making the game extremely fun because I could now lock on to a cluster of planes and destroy them all. I could even watch in third person as my missiles closed up and annihilated them. The gameplay was pretty intense, I was maneuvering, trying to not get hit by missiles while at the same time trying to shoot down enemy planes. It was also fun doing maneuvers just for the fun of it, trying to get as close as I could to building without hitting them.

After about 15 minutes on my 8th try a cutscene came up. Basically at that time in the demo we had the enemy running away from us. Rather than telling you about how cool the cutscene was I will show it to you instead.


Skip to 6:20 for the cutscene, and also do yourself a favor and watch in high quality.

It was so cool when I saw all the planes blow up right in front of me I just couldn't wait to play more of this game. I didn't even know what other awesome things would be waiting for me in this game. So now I am a fan of the series and am currently trying to obtain Ace Combat 5 for the ps2, I am also waiting on Tom Clancy's HAWX that game looks amazing.
