E3: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon takes my breath away


7:30 PM on 06.08.2011




When it comes to arcade combat flight sim console action with an over-the-top dramatic story, it doesn't get much better than the Ace Combat series. Sure, it's no IL-2 Sturmovik but it's not supposed to be.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will come with a couple of new online modes including Capital Conquest, which lets you challenge opposing teams to fight for control of famous capitals around the world. Also, Apaches!

I do hope that the close combat zoomed-in action mechanic won't drown out the regular combat from the past games. Contrary to Hamza, who loved the new mechanic, I'm perfectly fine with shooting some AIM-120s from a couple of miles away.

If the new "Close Range Assault" feature won't be overused in the actual game, but instead adds arcade action to replace the usual close combat chaos that ensues when you run out of Sidewinders, I'm going to be all over this game. Hell, at least it will drown out memories of H.A.W.X. 2.
