You know what! Ace Combat was the greatest console Air Combat title, until Tony Hawk decided to make an exact replica. This, now makes Ace Combat new and fresh... We'll see how long it takes before a different developer starts tweaking this new engine that Ace Combat have made work! At first glimpse, it looks more cinematic... But, I think this will work, because each Ace Combat game has brought a tear to my eye! They are just so good. :) Peace Gamers!!

This one has the potential to be the best in this long running series. For now it looks spectacular!:)

I love the the fact that the new system is going to make you work for the kill while still having the old system at the same time

I was worried by the review saying that this game was a departure from the usual look of the franchise - usually this means bad news! However, this video is amazing. I am enthusiastically looking forward to this game now.

you know i just realized that the crap that comes out the screen (smoke and the sparks..and possibly feces and endometrial lining) never sticks to the canopy in 1st person...

I don't think it's worth 60$!!I think they should have just made it a dowloable game for 20$!

One thing I was disappointed not to hear was the uniquely-Ace Combat panic/anticipation/anger of a city/country under attack, in the radio chatter. Everyone seemed kinda... monotone. I wasn't expecting some thrilling display of the storyline from a game performance demo, but I'm hoping for more of an immersive emotion in the real game.

@Krescentwolf Part of the problem, though, is that the dogfight thing might be an option in online vs.

Some of the naysayers need to read up on the game. This ain't a rail shooter. The only thing the games doing is restricting the player from full control over his plane, so he can't for example, barrel roll. It's a control setting. And theres also an 'advanced' control setting that gives you full control over the plane, a la previous Ace Combat games. I'll miss the strange-real world as much as most AC fans... but this game is looking better with each video i watch.

The series has been stale for a long time now. I would love to play this, hope it lives up to this.

Anybody know if the Ace Edge flight stick will work with this game? I hope it does because it really made AC6 much more engaging.

I Loveeee the Ace Combat Series. This time based on earth territories is gonna be awesome. And this game is by far no rail system game. Its free to fly anywhere you want during the missions. I used to fly as fast as possible and try and fly between sky scrapers without hitting them. This is gonna be a blast!

looks pretty, but i hope its not as simple as it looks. looks like a two-button rail shooter.

Wait... this is from the 360 version.

Looks great technically, very exciting. Looks like a good game to play or watch, but doesn't look like an Ace Combat game. The departure from strangereal was almost a dealbreaker for me, but future videos are going to have to be more than spending 300 rounds on each dumb straight flying AI plane and shuddering camera angles to win me over. I'm not saying make the same old AC from the last decade, but take the best elements from each (flight model of AC6 + tweaks, story writers from 5, character from 5 and 3), add some better multiplayer, and take another $60 from my wallet. As it stands, unless this game gives me the same exhilarating feeling of playing at military aviation the older games did, I'll just wait until Namco Bandai gets back to its strangereal roots.

Oh my god! it looks like the game is doing pretty much all of the complicated stuff for him! I HOPE this is just and option for horrible players/casual players. The dog fight mode looks like the jet auto stays with the enemy and you just adjust the aiming!! PLEASE don't die on me, Ace Combat!

This looks very good. The use of real-world locales could add a sense of realism and urgency to missions. I like the new dogfighting feature, but I hope they don't overuse it. With Forza 4 and this hitting at the same time, I'm going to be awfully busy that week.

Yeah AncientDozer I am sure the story, music and gameplay will be great. I have never been disappointed by an AC game. Also realize that it isn't the first AC game set in our world. The fictional world is my personal preference for story setting when it comes to AC games. I will still be buying this when it comes out. It is an Ace Combat game after all and I have never not bought one when it comes out.

I would be nice for a change if I could fly low enough to rip roofs off some houses. ;)

Man, that "dog fight" thing adds so much to the combat! Awesome!

@toothofymir, complaining on the wrong platform friend, consoles do not support this kind of game, even with a flight stick you must use some keyboard keys if you are playing a serious simulator.
