Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Really enjoyed the demo, i actually thought the chopper level was more exciting than the jet one although it took me a while to get used to the apache controls. Not a big fan of the DFM though, it takes a bit of the realism away but Ace Combat is an arcade game at heart. This will definately be getting purchased at some point!

Really agree with these comments. They could scrap the fighter jet stuff and concentrate on the apache missions. Thought the sommersault evade was fun at first but a bit over the top 25 evades later. Would definitely, definitely day one purchase buy into a franchise of the apache missions.

I completely forgot about this: Apache Air Assualt It got fairly average reviews across the board, might be worth having a look at mate ;)
