    Deffo pick it up man. Maybe wait for a price drop, unless you want AC5 or 6 too of course.
    Kept you waiting, huh?

    Not only is this game bloody awesome fun, but the music score is incredible and adds so much to the game.

    I was going to ask about that as in the past AC games have always featured a high quality music score. I often find background music an annoyance in a lot of games but in AC its used as a great mood enhancer.

    The end title song: Blue Skies used in both AC4 and a slightly jazzy remix AC5 are particularly good, ending the games on a well judged, appropriately melancholy note.

    So on, I mean this track alone is simply incredible. The game is like playing a Christopher Nolan epic scored by Hans Zimmer

    I’ve done Biohazard RE: 2 casual playing. I’ll go back to it in time to platinum, but Ace Combat 7 was the game that I had been looking forward to forever. Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies was the game I used to show off my BB Navigator setup with BITD. One of my favourite series of all time. A series that I truly love.

    Tonight, I got my VR setup out in a semi-drunken state... All I can say is that it’s SO good, that I just dropped £300 on the Japanese version of the HORI flight stick to go with it. It should arrive in two days, along with a hefty Customs tax, but I don’t care. I need to experience this game in its ultimate form. At least I can play part 5 afterwards to somewhat validate such an outlandish purchase.

    Finished the last couple of missions which felt like stepping in to Macross Plus at the end, which i assume put this as a lead in to AC3?

    Well i hope they either do a sequel to this or remake AC3 with all the optional the routes, rather than going back to the real world.

    I borrowed this from a friend. It's terrible and the same Ace Combat I was playing 10 years ago.

    I appreciate the parameters for what you can do with these games are pretty narrow but they could have served up a fuller dish than this. The gameplay starts out dull and doesn't get any better. It's all so static and typical and done to death, including, of course, the obligatory flying down a tunnel finale. And the game treats you like a complete simpleton because whenever you have to refuel or land, your automatically lined up so that all you need to do is reduce speed. That ain't fun or satisfying.

    I gave up on the story after mission 2 and skipped all subsequent cutscenes but from what I could tell it's set in the future when fossil fuels are dried up but it's been discovered that Dairylea cheese triangles can power jet engines but there's a cheese shortage because cows are dying from boredom and so you start a war to try and liven things up. I don't like the wingmen/wingwomen in the game either, they don't seem to do much at all except babble inanely, I swear one of them was talking about Tony from Hollyoaks at one stage. Bloody awful. I was glad to give the game back.

    These games are what they are. Arcade blasts, not flight sims. Like Ridge Racer and EDF and so many other series’, they have a certain style. That style may not be to the tastes of all, which is fair enough, but for fans of the series, this is a solid entry. I enjoyed my time on it a lot.

    Foals for courses I guess.

    Nice reference.

    To be fair the VR mode in this is fantastic. That moment when your launched off the carrier is brilliant and being able to turn your head to scan the sky for enemy is a game changer. Unfortunately it made me quite sick after 5 or 6 minutes and I had to stop playing but, still, it's even more impressive than Wipeout in its implementation, immersiveness and execution.
