Do a Barrel Roll in AC5

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 best. Coupled with an unbelievable soun...

Turn and Burn in AC5

The good:

-- Great Graphics -- Incredible Sound effects -- 50 different Licensed Planes -- Nice Storyline, Including over 30 missions. -- Wingman Commands -- Nice Speical Effects -- Radio chatter -- Replay

The bad:

-- Wingman Commands could be better -- Possibly of each plane having diffrent fight models -- Needs Online -- Couldnt find 2 player or co-op mode -- Ablibty to buy weapons of your choice -- Campaign needs to be a lot longer -- Could have more Simulation Qualities

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 campaign. The overall game play is much like the pervious titles. It has some simulation, but...

Ace Combat 5 Review

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 was cool. So was the fourth, and so on...

Ace Combat, From Incredible to Unbelievable

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.

This Game is ADDICTIVE

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.

Excellent Game

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 ...
