Ok this is really pissing me off. I'm on the last mission where your chasing Markov and you have to keep him from firing the missile but every time I always stay on him and put missile after missile into him and dodging his missiles that never seem to miss the mission fails cause he ends up firing his missile anyway and game over. I dont understand what I have to do. I'm about to break the disk in half lol please help!!

90% of the mission is annoying, scripted, and you can't really hurt him. You need to keep doing DFM on him, following him past landmarks until you get a radio message that "He's started his final approach". Thats when you can finally kill him. I think it's 3, maybe 4 rollarcoaster sequences and then the final fight.

You have to keep chasing markov and use DMF against him, dodgeing his missiles too, eventually you'll have a cinimatic scene where you shoot your guns and destroy Markov. The missile will be launched no matter what but at that time you have to shoot it down before it impacts (kind of like the mission with the ICBM)

If you think this is bad, its just as well you've never tried to fight Sulejmani in Ace Combat: Joint Assault.

That was a pain.

 

Yes most last boss fights in AC are a pain. But after you get the fictional aircraft's they are over in 2 secs. No sure if this game has that tho.

Not that it would do you any good since the last mission is 90% a sightseeing tour of DC before you can hurt him. After the first missile did go form me it was over in a few sec.

The problem with Markov is that you really can't shoot him down until the game allows you to. The first five minutes of the final mission really seem to have no bearing as to whether you succeed or not. You really are unable to shoot the bugger down before reaching the final part of the mission .

For the record, this isn't entirely new to the series, and I'll maintain that the battle with Sulejmani at the end of Joint Assault was worse.

 

Imagine trying to fight Markov without DFM at all and that 95% of the time, you can only damage him with guns.

To add to that, he had a huge amount of HP that had to be whittled down, combined with scripting and the PSP's horrible little analogue nub, and you have quite possibly the most difficult encounter in all of the Ace Combat series.

Or you can have a look for yourselves from my playthrough of the game.

That's a fully upgraded Su-37 as well.

This is why I don't particular mind DFM. Because Sulejmani demonstrated just how cheap the AI had to be made to try and inject a challenge to series veterans.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggled against this mission. That makes me feel a little better. I was hitting him with everything short of trinity missiles and still couldn't take him down. I finally had to take the rental back without beating it cause I ran out of time. If I ever decide to give the game another chance I'll follow the advice listed above.
