    Helicopters? Can we play the turret gunner in a black hawk?

    Ace is probably shitting his pants in agony at the idea of quick time events in a f*cking flight combat game.

    Well the quick-time events are certainly cheesy, but helicopters and turret gunning sound like good additions. The game needs to provide the full air force experience ... would definitely go a long way towards recapturing my interest.

    I'd play this. I never played the Ace games till 6 so I don't know why people get their panties all in a bunch when they change the gameplay around and actually evolve the series. Look at Final Fantasy, they've changed so much over the years they cater to just about anyone who likes RPGs. and look at Mario too for the matter. games continue to impress me with how much they expand and change. playing the same old shit gets boring but when you change the game around a bit it becomes fresh and unique

    Well put...

    The last Ace Combat looked amazing...almost bought a 360 for it...but I DO like the looks of some of this...the graphics looked amazing in the scene with the Blackhawk gunner mowing down the metal shed.

    But I dont like high speed 3D movement games with cinematic stuff like the plane hitting the building, or the OpFor pilot in the middle of a massive air battle with hundreds of aircraft involved taking the time to wingtip a single parachuting pilot...

    They've already done this with Ace Combat: Joint Assault for the PSP.

    Yes they were. Before 6.

    I'll still buy this and reserve my opinion for when I play it.
    ..I just hope the sense of identity as a hero is kept. Being a nameless pilot sucks.

    Never been a particular fan of Ace Combat, but judging what it was like before this is a huge step backwards.

    Sounds pretty poopy for a flight simulator to be explained like this.

    Ace Combat was never a flight simulator. StarFox was more of a flight simulator than Ace Combat.

    Actually I'd say AC was closer to a flight sim than star fox, but AC was an arcade flight simulator. It was in the middle between action action action and cool dogfights.

    This is taking it too close to 'action game'.

    ace combat focused more on the fun part while keeping a simulator feel and a sci-fiest setting in a anime style

    now it seem be be focused to please the burly marines liking crowd and sure in a mission we will have to save the president of the usa or something like that

    this make me apreciate ac3 much more

    Heh, by flight simulator I meant a game that revolves around flying aircraft (though that isnt the correct definition).

    Well, there's already been a over a dozen games based on the same formula. You eventually run out off steam to the point that it dilutes the gameplay and want to try something new with the series. It's hardly uncommon.

    Dude, you don't like helicopters? You don't like quicktime events? Quicktime events are the future of gaming.

    Aileron roll, which is about as close to a barrel roll as a helichopper is going to get....

    Demo's out.

    Helicopter level is terrible.
    Music is good.
    Forced QTE.
    Everything I was worried about.

    Multiplayer sounds cool, though.

    God damnit Darkside.

    Uhm?

    Are you trying to compare a simulator to an arcade game?
    That's like trying to compare Arma and CS:S.

    If I want to play a sim I'll play a sim, but I want to play Ace Combat and that's what this thread is about.

    Also, it is impossible to kill the 'tgt lead' guys without the 'Dogfight mode' bullshit. I tried.

    verdict is in

    it is
    not a bad game
    the demo was very unrepresentative of the final product(the demo was the tutorial instead of actual gameplay and was not fluid at all.)
    the plot sucks so far and the characters are not likable(if there are even characters, I'm not sure)

    full co op
    nicely made multiplayer
    DFM is not as bad as it made itself out to be, and is actually a decent addition to the gameplay in the end.

    it's not as bad as hawx but it's certainly no ace combat zero.

    So, it's essentially Call of Duty on air. Not saying it's bad, but it's certainly a change from previous Ace Combat games.

    Played the demo, the only part I didn't like about the game is the helicopter part.

    Oh, and if anyone is thinking about getting this game, get the Xbox 360 version. Apparently, the ps3 version is the inferior one.

    Not saying the difference is clear like the whole Bayonetta fiasco, but the xbox 360 version has sharper texture while ps3 version has washed out visuals and jaggie shadows.

    But then again, you won't even able to tell the difference with whole dogfight going on. Only during the cutscenes.

    Cutscenes seem to look terrible as is.
    I think even Ace Combat 5 had better cutscenes than this shit.

    Wish more of then had gone with the live action Zero had.

    saw a video of the helicopter part and it didnt looked that bad
    also didnt liked the new call of dutyfied character "lets go marines hoha!"

    also I didnt liked the live action cutscenes of zero though they didnt looked that bad
