I have to Admit I am loving this game, I completed it last night - I'm enjoying it still even now !

I think the best thing about this game other than it's lovely Graphics has to be the Music, they went whole Hog on that!

Must admit hat I have some reservations about the DFM etc, all feels a bit 'gimmicky' and unnecessary, but on the whole, yes I agree, this is the best title by far.

I am just soooo happy there isn't the ridiculous blow up some futuristic completely ridiculous flying fortress and above all else....no flying down the god dam tunnel at the end!!! Those two things alone give this title my vote!

Great title if just a touch less than perfect with the silly DFM modes etc.

Not perfect IMO, and at first really couldn't get used to the DFM system, but as I slowly mastered how it works, Assault Horizon isn't too bad for me. I still prefer the more story-telling-focusing style on AC6 (and AC4 & 5 to other fans but I haven't played them), but the online play is definitely great fun.

I would agree 100% that regardless of your feelings towards DFM / ASM, it does definitely take some getting used to. Even when I did get used to it and master it, I just never found it something I could get on with.

I mean it is intended to give a sense of speed and heart thumping action, and it does in some small part but, to anyone who knows anything about aircraft, when you enter into a dogfight with an SU-25 Frogfoot and it weaves around the skies like a small agile fighter such as the Typhoon, it starts getting a bit silly. The Frogfoot is so slow in real life it take bird strikes in the rear and turns like a pregnant cow, it is basically the fat guy who never leaves his house and hasn't seen his genitals in 15 years of the aviation world.

I just think they didn't need it, but for better or worse it is here, still a great game though.

You have to change the control setting to "original".

i wish they would come back with fuel consumption. i think, after all these ace combats before they tends to make ace combat more unrealistic like the hawx games and somehow the dogfights and many scriptevents sucks . its like final fantasy 13, the developer and publisher try to open their games for the mainstream. but i can't agree with those developments . ... how the times have changed.

I love ace combat games and I was looking forward to playing this game for ages but after playing it I was disappointed with the DFM but it was still fun to play.

I've had AC6 and now this one and just from the two, I like AC:AH best! Sadly, I got it right before Skyrim and I haven't played it since.

Just completed it having regretted not getting it on day one as soon as I started playing it... The best ace combat I've ever played and one of the best games I have ever played. Might just be my own personal exaggeration but I loved it!

I've only played Ace Combat 6 and this one. And I have to say, that this one is by far better than Ace 6. Its especially awesome, that now you dont only use jets, but also bombers and helicopters. Gives it a nice change

Yea, this is definitely one of the greatest Ace Combats. Love the cinematic feel to this game.

For me, AC:AH is one of the weakest games from the Ace Combat franchise.

I had fun in my first playtrough, but the campaign had to many quicktime events for my taste. Far to many. This game doesn't let you any free choice in your playtrough. The soundtrack is still great as always. Graphics are lightly over average for me, for a console game it's surely an nice eyecatch; if you aren't analyzing the muddy ground textures. All that's fine to me.

But what I really don't like is the most important part: the gameplay.

The cinematic cutscenes looks visually nice, but technically it gets really annoying and boring after a few minutes. Even in the online mode you will activate this cutscenes, while your plane flys out of map and explodes. You see this cinematic scenes over and over again and can't control your plane. Target_Leads can't be shot down regulary, no, you have to follow the same loop over and over again; if you restart a mission over and over again for an A-Rank, it gets annoying as hell. But what I most don't like is the DFM Mode: You don't need to fly at all anymore, all what you need are good special weapons and good skills equipped. This totally feels wrong, especially, if you are a fan since the first Air Combat game of this series.

I still play it online sometimes, even if I enjoyed AC 6 so much more. (Level 2) But it looks like the multiplayer is rather dead then active.

I personally liked AC 4 the best in the series. But this one does kick ass.

Was kinda going to ask for your guys opinions on this game haha

Is it worth buying it?

The one I liked the most so far was 5, for the storyline and stuff, but again apart from the 5 I only had a PSOne game that I don't remember which number it was... I wanted to get my hands on the 4, but PS2 games were still expensive when I got to play the 5...

I don't understand how you people say this game is great??? It fuckin sucks compared to the rest of the franchise. You cant kill anyone unless you are in dfm mode, it takes 3-5 missles to get a kill, you squad mates don't do dick to help you when you're getting gang raped and the controls suck. AC6 was a million times better and I'm sorry I ever played this crap game!
