Just like the route taken by many other franchises in the past decade, Ace Combat Assault Horizon is, sadly, what happens when a Publisher/Developer decides to rise the finger towards their loyal fanbase, and tries their hardest to appeal to a different, more modern mainstream crowd.

In the end and as a consequence, not only failing hard to get a piece of that pie, but losing the respect and support of those who were with them right from the beginning.


The Good
On the brightest side of things, there are twenty five different airplanes, three helicopters, and two bombers to chose from, each intricately modeled and textured, complete with beautiful, detailed cockpit views.

While the graphics menus are an absolute joke (more on that later), I haven't ran into any problems what so ever, everything works as it should, the framerate is stable, the controls are responsive and there are no visible glitches or problematic bugs typical of bad ports...


The Bad
In an effort to not only simplify the game but make it more "edgy n'cool", the developers introduced a new mechanic that goes by the name of Dog Fighting Mode (DFM for short), a mode that gets you close to the action, glues you to your enemy and takes literally up to about 90% of the control off of your hands, just so you may shoot him down with your suddenly increased aimbot like super accuracy.

As a result, DFM is nothing but an on-rails, scripted, nauseating (boy, that zoom in/out camera/field of view) joke that takes you on a quest you cannot possibly fail; It requires absolutely no skill whatsoever, providing no fun a result.

Such ain't "optional" either, since certain enemies can ONLY be taken down using said mode, and others can also glue themselves to you, forcing such mode on yourself.

...as if that wasn't bad enough, certain enemies will take you on a rather long scripted adventure (you'll notice those right away, they're bullet sponges) and can only be disposed of, once their fancy "scripted" event has come to an end.


For the first time ever in the franchise, we're given the opportunity to take control of an Helicopter (in fact, tree of them); This is indeed a breath of fresh air in the game, but unfortunately its implementation leaves a lot to be desired.

To start off, the shaky, in your face, zoomed in Third-Person camera, has got to be one of the worst I've experienced in a game, the levitating brick occupies almost three quarters of the screen and flies all over the place, making its best efforts to obstruct your view all the time;

Thankfully, there is a cockpit view, and even that has the bad habit of shaking in an exaggerated manner and zooming in every time you lock your weapons on a target.

...now, as far as Helicopter gameplay goes, it could be described almost as a modern generic Third/First-Person Shooter (only clunkyer) and in the air, which consist off gunning down waves upon waves of ground forces who oppose no threat whatsoever (as in challenge), occasionally dodging a missile or two (it's laughable), and maybe, face off another chopper one on one; Oh, and you cannot crash it.

Nothing too complicated... in fact, if you're expecting anything that requires even the slightest amount of thought, strategy and/or skill, you might want to look somewhere else...


Be aware though!

The game has the bad habit of taking the control off of your hands, constantly zooming into whatever goes boom;
Trying a little bit to hard to make people go nuts over rad explosions, I guess...


New to the series are too the Turret Sections, which consist of nothing but press right click for "awesome".

Unfortunately, there are no unique and/or interesting mechanics to the big guns themselves, they don't overheat nor do they run out of ammo, rate of fire doesn't vary from turret to turret neither does the ammunition they consume...

...and as an effect, these sections come off as simplistic, stale, repetitive, and nothing more.

It could be said they exist for the sole reason of instant gratification, and it wouldn't be too far of the truth, as challenge is kept to a bare minimum and all it resorts to, is: Everything you look at explodes and anything that hadn't exploded yet is inoffensive to your mighty immortality.


Which brings me to...

...the Health Bar of old, which is nowhere to be seen, and there is a reason for such;
Our friends at Namco, decided it'd be a good idea to borrow, amongst other things, one of the worst fads in gaming; The absolute ATROCITY that is regenerative health.

Yes, that's right, Planes/Helicopters fix them selves (you'll notice a red screen displaying Critical, Heavy and Light Damage at times);


But wait, this ain't over yet!

If that wasn't ridiculous enough, our beautiful flying machines now bounce of the ground as if they're made of rubber.

Together with "Invincibility Mode", such can be abused to no end...



...but boy, oh boy, there's more;

Amongst other fads brought to the table, is the poor implementation of either intrusive Quick Time Events (QTEs for short), that serve no purpose other than breaking the flow of the game, or QTEs that don't even have an impact on anything (yes some can be ignored completely)!

Some cutscenes are unskippable (thankfully those are very, very few and far in between), forcing you to "take control" of the camera, as in, moving the main character's head to look around, because apparently someone somewhere thought that'd be fun.


To add insult to the injury, not only is our main villain the typical evil Russian guy (because 'Murica, I guess) he's also called Markov; Doesn't this ring a bell?

Even the name is similar to an evil guy from a certain overly successful, yearly franchise that's been copied to the point of exhaustion for the past decade!

...it might seem like I'm nitpicking by now, but it's blatantly obvious who or what this game has drawn inspiration (or should I say lack thereof) from, there's even a boring, uninspired AC130 mission thrown into the mix, and a long boring one at that (actually, most missions overstay their welcome)! Who finds this fun and why?


The Ugly
While this game is properly optimized from my experience, the Graphic Settings menu is a joke, there are only four available options to "tweak", Antialiasing (can only be turned On or Off), Fullscreen, Vsync and Resolution.


On a side note, while the PC version contains all the DLC included, don't even get me started on how ridiculous and overpriced they were on the console version, which used to charge from $4, up to $6 for individual Painting schemes and Aircraft (Not sure if it still does)!

Boy have standards fallen low, uh?


Final Verdict:
Ace Combat Assault Horizon is a game that tries to hard to be the next big thing; Not only does it feel desperate, like a little kid yelling and screaming for attention, it also feels like a compilation of everything that is wrong with games, the industry nowadays and the mentality of those who Publish/Develop the games we used to know and love.

Therefore, earning an abysmal rEvo's rating of 2.5/10


I can't remember a single moment where I was enjoying myself; I felt suffocated in the middle of all of its "edgy" in your face exaggeration, mixed with boring, generic simplified gameplay mechanics...

It felt cheap, it felt empty and it felt outdated...

Outdated in the sense that the kind of game Assault Horizon is trying to be, has been copied and beaten to death multiple times in the past decade.

It's just not its unique thing anymore, and as a result you'll find "Assault Horizon's" core, in any other brown, cinematic (edgy), military (or not), linear, scripted, simplified, over budgeted, mediocre AAA (triple A) game out there...


At the very least, the game's well programmed and functional, doesn't crash nor does it stutter around...

As a huge fan of all of the Ace Combat titles on the PS/2, this game was a HUGE LETDOWN. Flight controls are extremely limited, and worse yet they added a "dog-fight" feature that locks your plane into place to fire machine guns. So if you enjoy the "flying" element of aviation games, there's no fun to be had here.

Looks pretty, but throws everything that made the AC series great out the window in favor of forcing you into a QTE to shoot down every single plane.

And there are a lot of them.

Prepare for 45 minute missions to shoot downa handfull of aircraft

Marvel as you watch your plane magically repair itself mid fligh!

Stare astonished as that common fighter plane dodges your locked missile for the 20th time, forcing you into the half minute-minute long QTE to shoot it down!

Laugh with glee as the Strangereal setting and plot(s) are tossed aside in favor of the real world with a typical summer block buster plot of evil Russians!

Regret spending $5 on it during the sale and go back to playing AC Infinity!

As a person that has played all the ace combat games i find this game a big let down,the story is very uninspired all the characters are plain and boring. Dog fight mode is forced down your throat, most enemys in the game can only be taken down in it some of them is even scripted were you unload hundreds of bullets and missiles in to a bullet spunge air craft till its over. one other thing for some strange reason they decided not to show you what the Jets look like when you go to choose before a story mode mission with is diffrent from all previous ace combat games.

This is the cancer that is killing the video game industry.

Granted, I came expecting an arcade flight sim experience much like Ace Combat 2, 3, 4 and 5. Instead I found an overly and extremely casualized flight sim, if you can even call it a flight sim, full of QTEs and basically a "dogfighting minigame". Whereas in previous games you actually had to outmanouver the enemy top planes here you just press a series of buttons to kill everything.

You can't even fly inverted or do loops. In that regard this game is exactly like the "plane" game AfterBurner for Sega Megadrive that came out in the 90s.

This isn't even worth it at a 90% discount. Do not get this game, it isn't even fun.

One of few ariel combat games that don't belong to hardcore similatots. You dont need a 50 page tutorial to play.

+ Good planes
+ Helicopters
+ Good graphics

- More console oriented gameplay/controls
- Scripted gamepley.

A PC version should be more flexible on controls.

I was expecting a light, arcade dogfighting game, but this is more like Call of Duty. Plane does not feel anything like a plane, but no worries, we haz BIIIG EXPLOSIONS!!! And turret sections!! And finishing moves with KILLCAM!!

Terrible console shooter, avoid at all costs.

This particular AC game is extremely simple compared to the previous games. The airial combat is very intense and fast paced however I feel that they over simplified the game a bit.

The missions are fun and the storyline is decent, unfortunately though as the game progresses through the main story the missions become more and more tedious and repetative.

Overall I'd say you should buy this if you are new to airial combat games or plan on collecting all of the Ace Combat franchise.

I personally hate this game, though I loved the series. The helicopter missions, the dog fighting mode, and the story all contributed to my dislike. I loved the previous games, I've been playing Ace Combat games since I was a kid and love them. I think they should return to their roots. HAWX 1 is probably the best arcade flight combat game on steam right now. If you want something more realistic DCS World is an amazing combat simulator.

Hmm..1 of nice planes games. Not bad game play, much nice camouflages and nice plane models. But story..Russia - enemy, after mission - Russia friend at war vs Russia :D Or at one mission I have to save my slave, but the fact that the slave should be behind me, but he front. Anyone who flies in front - the leading and rear - slave :) And i got for select few planes: few USA and few old from USSR :D So, i must at suck planes kill Russian Ac and nice plane Su-35 or Su-37 :D I don't remember :3

So, that game pretty good :3

This game will be a good game experience if you're not looking for a super accurate flight simulator. In this game Konami had prefered to follow something more "friendly / arcade" with cinematic appeal.

The campaign will take about 8 hours to complete and it is pretty decent just stay aware that there are many scripted scenes on the game, including the last misstion which is about 90 scripted and it REALLY is annoying.

I recommend playing the game with a controller (used a X360 one here) and get it for a pretty cheap deal since the community isn't playing Multiplayer anymore so you will come up playing only with your friends.

In full disclosure I will admit that the only other Ace Combat game I have played is AC04:Shattered Skies, AC04 is one of my favorite games with an excellent combination of good story telling and solid controls, as such I am going to be using it as my reference point and I expect the majority of the other titles in the series to follow in AC04's vein. I will also admit that I have not played much of ACAH due to its multitude of problems, which include the issue of controls and the radical shift in game play compared to AC04.
The controls are awkward to players use to the traditional combination of mouse and keyboard flight simulators, they involve a combination of the arrow keys for the place of a joystick and place the yaw and acceleration on to the wasd. This setup does not give the precision that a mouse and keyboard or a controller gives, it just feels really clunky. Though the control settings claim to support mouse and keyboard, that is only during the helicopter and rail gun segments, the mouse is not supported when piloting fixed wing aircraft. This is a serious problem when you consider the fact that the game focuses on close range arcade style dogfighting, something that inherently requires precision, and leads to frustration at overturning your opponent almost constantly.
The gameplay itself is solid, if this had not been an ace combat game I may even call it good, it involves closing behind the opponents aircraft, pushing a button, and entering a “dogfight mode” where the camera is zoomed in and your reticule is expanded. In the dogfight mode the opponent is locked to your speed and can only turn, the goal is to use your cannon or a well timed missile to knock out your opponent. But my real issue is the fact that the gameplay is just so different from AC04 that it feels like a completely different series, it feels more arcady and badly put together. The controls don't help the game in anyway, so you really should buy a controller or a supported joystick (of which there are few) before purchasing the game.

TL;DR: Controls are clunky and require a controller or joystick to use, the gameplay is so radically different that it might as well be a game from another series. A good game, but not a good Ace Combat.

I've played alot of the older games and I have to say, this one's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The DFM mechanic makes multiplayer matches not take 4 hours to end. Without DFM no one would probably ever be hit.
