    Question Ace Combat. Never played but curious

    This is a series I never played. Know little about it. Are they very arcadey? Or Armored Core with jets? Is 7 a good place to start?

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    I can't speak for the whole series, but Ace Combat 04 was one of my favorite games, I played the hell out of it on PS2. I played a fair amount of 05 also. I sort of lost track of the series after that though. The gameplay is more on the arcade side for sure. It's a lot of fun.

    I really like the story these games have. 04 told it in a really great way with cutscenes between missions.

    Ace Combat 4 is really the place to start. The 1st game hasn't aged that well. Also, if you've ever played Air Force Delta on the Dreamcast, it's a very simular game.

The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections.

    Thank you. Picked up AC7 barring idiotic rallies preventing the mail from being delivered. I should have it Monday.
    May look into Air Force Delta.

    Air Force Delta is a strange case where the Dreamcast series entry is the most popular, however the game does indeed have sequels on OG Xbox and PS2.

    I have the OG Xbox version as well. It's called Air Force Delta Storm.

    Yeah, I have the first one for PSX and itís pretty lacking.

    AC set the mold for arcade flight sims, at least for 3D.

    In a sense this is reminding me of Armored Core so far. The mission structure has some similar traits and presentation. Mainly Armored Core 4. (Note I originally typed this as AC4 and wow so many series have the initials AC lol)

    I remember absolutely loving Ace Combat 2 on the original Playstation. Oddly enough, I've never played another AC game.

    1 and 2 are arcadey, most of the other have a more cinematic presentation but still very action focused (think Valken).

    Ace Combat 4 is one of my favourite all time games and I consider myself a fan of the franchise. Ace Combat: The Belkan War, also on the PS2, was also superb. They are all set in the same alternate world and the fictional countries and subsequent wars are referenced throughout the franchise. I own Ace Combat 7 and, considering myself a bit of an Ace Combat pro, started playing it on hard difficulty. Yeah, I'm obviously not as good as I thought I was because the game kicked my arse lol. I'll have to admit defeat and lower the difficulty when I go back to it.
