Ace Combat: Assault Horizon | £9.99 | Currys | PS3 & Xbox 360

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is a competent and visceral arcade flight sim, packing gorgeous graphics, plenty of enormous explosions and outrageous furballs that will take you right into the danger zone. As a fan of the franchise, though, I should point out that its derivative focus on providing a Call Of Duty-esque experience holds it back from the true greatness of its predecessors. Enormous dynamic battles against floating fortresses has been replaced with turret shenanigans, cutaways and (aggravatingly) an AC-130 section... but the raw brilliance of the close quarters dogfighting has to be experienced to be believed.

Currys are selling both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions for £9.97, which is an absolute bargain.
