I was hopeful when I purchased this game. I am a fan of (modern-era) flight sims and I've sunk plenty of time into playing and replaying the Ace Combat games on consoles.
Unfortunately, I came away very disappointed by this game. It's simply... not fun.
While some games don't look very pretty in screenshots, but look amazing in-game, Air Conflicts unfortunately suffers the opposite: its screenshots do tend to look very pretty. But in the game, they don't feel as nice as the screenshots make them out to be.
There are also bugs aplenty and I've gotten completely stuck with my objectives before, requiring me to restart the entire mission again (after which I just stopped playing).
The maps are far too small to feel like you are an air superiority fighter. Go near top speed, and you'll have to turn right around again because you've flown past the map's boundaries.
Ground target missions for anything except helicopters are absolutely rubbish. Take note, game developers, you do not want your players to feel ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off because clunky controls make accomplishing tasks harder.
The story and voice acting are a joke, although the attempt is noticeable. (Paradox, I know.)
In conclusion, there are far better ways to spend your time. Don't waste it by playing this. Also, its price as it is now is absolutely ridiculous. I got it in a bundle with several other games for less than $5. Even so, it's still not worth playing.
