Pretty planes soaring in the sky
Hope you don't mind jumping topics a bit too much ^^;
It's less than 2 weeks before the release of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon on both PS3 and XBOX 360. Those planes in the screenshots really look do look pretty though, which makes me dazzled and stare at them like girls.
Su-34 "Fullback" with MiG-29 in the background
Inside the cockpit of Su-33
Skins of protagonist planes from previous games will be available too. For example Cipher's F-15C from Ace Combat Zero.
Ace Combat 5's Razgriz theme black F-14D Super Tomcat with Palm Jumeirah in the background
Su-37, the plane that made famous in Ace Combat 04 with an ace squadron serving as a recurring enemy throughout the game. Too bad it's a DLC (seriously DLCs are announced even before the game is released?! The same applies for the map Tokyo in the background which will also be a DLC for multiplayer...)
Tornado GR4. Another DLC
Winner of the skin design contest for F-15C "Death Rider" is also available as DLC, but this is free to download which is a good thing.
Fighter aircrafts are like the new girls for me today (wait what?).
But on a serious note, graphics really have come through a long way. Just look at this image from Ace Combat 2 that I have taken earlier this month, which was released way back in 1997.
Pretty planes are pretty, but let's hope that the game is good though. It has a lot to live up with the previous games in the series. Demo is available for download, and it seems a little scripted to me. I just hope that the new Close Range Assault is not a necessity to play through the majority of the game, but the final release may be against my wish. Well we shall see :o
