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 (as always) an AC-130 section... but the raw brilliance of the close quarters dogfighting has to be experienced to be believed. Game's price is the cheapest around - and it's the limited edition too.

I really want to like this game but, even after an hour or so with the Playable Demo, I cannot get any better at flying the aircraft.

I was moderately better with the helicopter, but not much.

PS. £14.99 in your subject line. £21.99 as the "Current" price.

£14.99 is correct at present.

BFN,
