THE GOOD: Fantastic graphics -- Amazing Soundtrack -- Great storyline and campaign -- -- Non-stop action -- Many different types of aircraft -- Realistic and well implemented weapons -- Phenomenal game-play -- One of the best flight simulators of all time
THE BAD: No multi-player -- Planes lack weapon customization -- Kind of difficult for first-timers -- Wingmen commands are lacking -- "Branching story-line" is hardly noticeable
SUMMARY: Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War is anything but "unsung". This game is probably one of the best additions to the franchise yet. The game follows a group of Osean Air Force rookie pilots who are practically demons on the battlefield. Inspiring fear in their enemies, they quickly become known as the Demons of Razgriz and become the main backbone of the Osean military. However, this all changes in one of the game's many climaxes where the pilots learn the truth behind the war they're fighting. From the get-go, this game is non-stop, high-flying action at its b...

SUMMARY: The 5th Installment to the Ace Combat series, by Namco will have you tearing through the skies in a
nicely detailed landscape and high detailed aircraft.
With more then 50 different aircraft to choose from, this arcade style flight game is sure to have your heart pumping. Complete in Arcade mode for all out blow em up, shoot em down action, or take to the skys in the story mode as you defend your native country of Osea from the forces of the neighboring country of Yuktobana in a immersive...
THE GOOD: Wingman Command! Tons of planes! Awesome graphics! Great cutscenes! A lot of good voice acting! Very interesting mission ideas! Arcade had my knuckles white! Sweeeet secret planes! Cool unlockables!
THE BAD: Some...odd...voice acting. Some missions are too drawn out. No 2-player feature. No online feature. Shouldn't have to buy planes for your wingmen. Replays need to be more realistic. Why isn't there an opening scene on start-up?
SUMMARY: When I rented 'Ace Combat 5 The Unsung War', I was very excited. I played it for an entire week! I liked the menu ideas, and the music was good. Arcade Mode was the first thing I played on it, which, like I said, was very adrenalizing. I liked how it continued the story of Mobius 1, but should have included aircraft select. After that I continued to Campaign Mode, which had a jaw-dropping and slightly tear-jerking opening movie. When I watched it, I was eager to begin my play. The first mission was cool. The second mission was cool. The third mission wa...
THE GOOD: Over 30 environments/Missions, each one the same size or bigger than the entire environment of GTA San Andreas! Gorgeous graphics that when flying in the clouds will amaze you. Digitally animated cut scenes that will blow you away with their vibrant colours and awesome audio.
THE BAD: Still too short unfortunately, the game truly is awesome, but completing it was just to quick.
SUMMARY: If you loved the previous games, there's no doubt you'll love this one.
If you haven't played any of the previes games, don't worry, you don't need to have played them to understand the storyline of this game. You'll find yourself engrossed in this games depthly storyline with truly stunning video scenes.
I recommend this game to any fan of the previous games and any person who enjoys flying games or who just want to live the "Top Gun" experience.
THE GOOD: + New Planes. + Wingman(Even though I take the kills). + Improved graphics. + Better Storyline. + Upgrading Jets. + Distinctive missions. + Longer than the original. + A and B missions. + I love the extra points for take-off and landing. + Smart Squadron. + Closest to real out of all aircraft games(second to Ace Combat 4). + Great with the Jet Game Controller(It costs $130 though)
THE BAD: -Needs more detailed land graphics. -Can't switch special weapon. -Needs Sensitivity control for the throttle button because it felt like I was pushing my R1 button too hard. -I would have loved Co-op mode. -I really would like online tournaments, co-op missions, and just plane all-out huge dog-fights.
SUMMARY: Not too far from Ace Combat 4 and not too close to it. Pretty close to perfect except for the graphics for the land but it is improved from the original. It is one of the best aircraft fighter game I've ever played. No the best, the most realistic jet game, ever.
THE GOOD: Awesome Graphics Loads of real planes Well balanced difficulty levels Good story Decent Replayability Unlockable paint schemes Wingmen Good AI especially on harder difficulty levels
THE BAD: Mission variety, some seem a little too similar Can't buy weapons Wingman commands aren't very well executed, could be better and have more options/commands. Could of added a few more levels
SUMMARY: A really well designed game. The best in the genre by far. It has a story good enough to keep you playing your first time through, and then you want to play thru again for the paint schemes, unlockable plane, and finding all the aces to fight. Not to mention the challenge of a harder difficulty to test your skills. Very large selection of planes to buy and all of them real. The gameplay is fast and furious as should be in this genre, and the soundtrack keeps the blood pumping. This game is worth buying for anybody who likes action and approachable for anyone who hasn't played the series yet engaging enoug...
THE GOOD: *Wingmen can be controled now, and they are definetly less *bleep*ed as they used to be. They can be a big help in either doing the mission themselves or protect you so you can do it yourself. *The ultimate plane selection of all time *Great feel to the gameplay *Graphics are insanely awesome
THE BAD: *Studders when everything's going on at one; atleast on my PS2, the oldest version *Mission styles for the most part are the same as the other games in the series *No more costom loadouts
SUMMARY: Don't believe them when they say the storyline is dynamic: there are two splits, one in the middle and one near the end. The first split makes two missions different while the second split makes one mission different.
Weather isn't dynamic either. It's beautiful, but it doesn't change inflight.
THE GOOD: Graphics (AWSOME!!),Radio chatter, 50 planes, 35 missions, good AI, good enemy AI, great story, u have ur own squadron, F-14D Super Tomcat (hell yea), and the missions literally push you to the brink
THE BAD: No reloading (does give game more realism) No multiplayer (common i like shooting my friends) THATS IT
SUMMARY: AWSOME this game blew all my expectations i had...It was such a awsome game that i can put down my remote its story is SUPURB and the amount of detail is astonishing...this game has pushed the PS2 graphically to the brink and the peeps at namco have a GREAT game..i would reccomend this game to the highest even if u arnt a air sim person get this game it is truly that good.......with the little probs in, it still is the best game ive played probably...
