DON'T buy this game if you're planning to use a Joystick.
Hey there! Just wanted to let everyone know to avoid this game if you want to play it with a joystick, it's completelly nosense and impossible to play. Goodbye.

I use the Logitech Extreme 3D when I play. I'm not the best, but not the worst.

I do have an XBOX 360 controller what works with Windows, but am personally horrible at it.

If you'd bothered to actually use this cool thing called search or google, you'd be able to enjoy the game since day one. Insane, I know right?

God, you're so clever! How did i never think about that?

Acutally, google did let me know that if you want to play with a joystick (a proper setup let's say) you can simply avoid buying this game. Just wanted to help people looking for more info. And no, deleting default_input.ini isn't going to make you enjoy the game if you're used to sims. That's all :).

So...what are you saying? Are you saying that a joystick doesn't work, or that it's not a realistic flight sim? Because I know it's an arcade flight game and I'm fine with that. I just don't want to have to use anything other than a flight stick to control it.

Ok, answering my own question in case anyone else comes by and sees this. I'm using a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro, and it seems to work seamlessly. The only thing I had to configure was the throttle, everything else worked fine right off the bat.
I'm looking forward to playing it with my Saitek X36 HOTAS. (Which all the Hori stick/throttles bundled with Ace Combat 5 and 6 are based on directly.)

Heh, I've wanted the X36 since I first saw it in a gaming magazine in like 1999... But it cost a hundred bucks...and that was the gameport version! I just couldn't justify it. Last year, I snagged one on ebay in perfect working order for $12 shipped...and it turned out to be the newer USB model.

that's a lazy pile of excuses for poor peripheral utilization and a lack of any real deadzone adjustment. This game is bad.

The game is one-sale at Amazon for $7.49 + tax where applicable. Less than the cost of two good hamburgers.

Buy it.

Get the code and activate on Steam. See how 'bad' it is.

I second this. +1

If you think you can have any degree of precise input without wazzing all over the place with a joystick, then think again. This was made for a 360 pad for people with a total of 1 brain cell. Ignore and move on

Except that the 360 bundle versions of Ace Combat games ship with a Hori ACE EDGE, which is a clone of the Saitek X36 throttle and stick. (Likewise the Hori EX HOTAS)

Maybe you didn't notice the little icon next to my name.

I have it. It's bad. It's short, half-♥♥♥♥♥, and a shoddy port job.

The advertised visual improvements are tantamount to false advertising. The game features no real options for visual adjustment and for good reason: The game layers on Post processing as make up to cover up ugly textures and low polygon models.

The game was given no attempt at proper porting, accomodating no real deadzone adjustment, which even HAWX had.

The game punctuates with some idiotic gimmicks like the helicopter levels, and AC-130/door gunner levels which are made push-over by mouse control. Even with that superficial padding, it's a pathetically short game with not much worth unlocking. On the subject of gimmicks, CRA is handled so terribly. Sure do love artificial bull that tries to make things more exciting but only serves to yank you out of the experience.

Bad visuals, bad campaign, and (most importantly) bad gameplay.

This game is bad. It doesn't even approach how awesome the PS2 trilogy was. And, in before that weakass "It's not a sim, it's not supposed to be!" pile of apologetics: No one is saying that. But, what they are saying is that it's an incompetently made piece of dung.

This game was bad on 360. Ace Combat 5 was the last really good game in this series. The games have gotten better looking since the PS 2 days but everything else about them has gotten worse with each new entry.
