Million-Dollar Jets In Your Pocket
Multiplayer is available for this game, though it requires two PSP users that both have a copy of the game. For that reason, I'm at a loss as to how the multiplayer plays out.
The physics, handling, and weapons payloads are exaggerated to arcadey degrees like other games in the Ace Combat Series, which may turn off die-hard realistic flight sim buffs. Yet as with the other games in the series, "Ace Combat X" features faithful recreations of real life jet fighters from all over the world; from the old reliable F-4 Phantom to new high-tech planes such as the F-35 Lightning and the Eurofighter Typhoon. Fictional aircraft such as the Wyvern, Falken, and Fenrir round out the selection of aerial ownage machines.
Bottom line, if you're expecting console Ace Combat, you may not get your money's worth. But if you are looking for an Ace Combat (or flying game in general) that you can play on a handheld anytime and anywhere, "Ace Combat X - Skies of Deception" is a lock-on.
