Not the Ace Combat you expected
Pros: New game modes rather than only the jets.
Cons: AC series is known for its simple control, straight forward game play and rich story line. By now I have not finished the game yet, but it has failed the first 2 points. This is just a drastic change to a old hardcore AC fan like myself. Game menu changed, layout changed, and of course game play changed too. The fancy chopper and canon fights are just too much like other war games and the "fresh" Dog Fight Mode just takes the REAL dog fight fun away. With this new DFM, the system makes it much harder just to hit the enemy normally. Seems like it is forcing the player to keep using the DFM.
Other Thoughts: if you are new to AC series and just like war games this may be for you. But if you are like myself being a fan since the first AC, rent it first to try out before you buy.

Worst Ace Combat
Pros: Namco seems committed to continuing the Ace Combat series, which is one of my favorites.
Cons: This is the worst Ace Combat by a mile. I'm glad I rented it because I got bored and put the controller down after about 20 minutes of play. I have days of play put into the previous Ace Combat games. Whoever thought that dog fight mode was a good idea should be sucked into a jet engine.

pretty nice game for what it is
Pros: New planes and game modes for online.
Cons: weak campaign *like the last two*
Other Thoughts: the reviews this game got doesnt do it any justice. Its a wonderful addition to the AC series, and any true AC fan should pick this one up and give it a try. Dont be persuaded by the purists. this game in nice, and the online is attictively fun. bout the only thing that stays in my 360 right now, lol.

DONT LISTEN TO THE FANBOYS. THIS GAME IS GREAT FOR WHAT IT IS.
Pros: Some planes that are a first of the AC series *t-50, SU24, SU39 and helos*
Cons: campaign is a bit weak. Storyline isnt as good as 4, but without all the sappy nonsense of 6. Still isnt a strongpoint of the series though, as it was mostly about the planes.
Other Thoughts: The guy that wrote the other review is one of the main reasons this AC is getting poor reviews. The game is alright for what it is. It takes a while to use to it but its fun in its own way.

I want to break something
Pros: -Features all of the popular global jet fighters, bombers, and attack helicopters
Cons: -Namco took some elements from Call of Duty (e.g., the chopper gunner and bombing missions) and tried to make this game a really fast-paced shooting game. The problem with that is it was cheaply done or under-developed. It's like they put this game out in a hurry.
Other Thoughts: Surprisngly, Battlefield 3 has a much better flight-sim version than Ace Combat.
