Ace Combat Assault Horizon sucks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is a MASSIVE dissappointment for me. I loved the old Ace Combat games starting from Ace Combat 3 on the PS1. Too bad I don't own a Xbox360, so I couldn't play AC6. But this game shouldn't even be called Ace Combat anymore. The story is your generic evil Russian story, the main character has no character. But most importantly, the ******* DFM pisses me off! So you basically can't kill any enemy aces without using it, it takes control away from you. And that's not even the biggest problem, the problem is when the enemy gets DFM lock on you, you can't even dodge their missiles. I got stuck in this one mission (I don't know or even care what mission it was) because the damn enemies can DFM me, but they can break free from my DFM lock. ***?! Not only DFM takes the skill out of this game, it introduced frustration into a once great air combat game. This is my last Ace Combat, Namco can suck it!

I think this GameSpot review says it all.

You can escape DFM if you do a accel-break allop-loop, or you can do a barrel roll by lining up the arrows in the middle when you get DFM'ed. But I do agree that ACAH is not a good AC game, however Namco is trying to do something new instead of doing the same thing everytime so I'll praise them for that.

Namco's decision to implement DFM is because everyone loves CoD style of cinematic action scenes. So they tried to get that element into this sort of dying series. IMO I think this is actually better than AC6.
