Ace Combat: Assualt Horizon Looks Familiar, But Who Cares?

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon isn't your typical Ace Combat game. "For us, this is a rebirth of the Ace Combat series, and a chance for us to take the series in a completely new direction," said Kazutoki Kono, Producer at Project Aces, said last year.

That direction is populated with games like Battlefield and Modern Warfare. There are shades of both in Assault Horizon—this isn't a bad thing! If this E3 trailer is any indication, the game could be a welcome addition to the sand-covered contemporary war games.



    (If anyone is worried by that 'chase camera', they've said on their facebook page that you press a button to activate it within a certain distance so it's optional)

    Much like mech games, PC miss out again despite being the better platform for the gameplay.


      I'm going to take a wild guess there are just a few more people who own consoles than joysticks these days...

    Damn! Looks goooood! Pity the REAL part of the trailer starts at 2:40.

    waiting for the rebirth of space combat shooters ala wing commander. In this realistic modern combat obsessed age me thinks I will be waiting a long time **sigh**

    apart from star fox and rogue squadron i was never a big fan of 'flight sims' but this looks epick

    Being a long time veteran of the Ace Combat series, I agree with PA that the system is getting outdated, and I welcome this change.

    That being said, I don't have a PS3 but I'm buying one just for this game!

    I care, that's who Brian. Me. I've been waiting the entire third generation for this.
