ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON Enhanced Edition

Your favourite Ace Combat game?
I've been loving ace combat ever since it was still called Air Combat (for PS1).

I've played all the ace combat games expect handheld ones.

My all time favourite is Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere. A good runner up is Ace Combat 2. And in third place...think i would put this one. Well, ace combat 6 was awesome but this is more arcade and reminded me more of the good old ace combat games for playstation 1.

AC4 is my favorite, but that's probably because it was my first one. It has the best story. AC5 has an excellent story as well, but the voice acting is a little... off. AC6 has annoying characters and feels like a rehash of AC4's story. You can tell they focused on the multiplayer portion and the 5 dollar per skin DLC... I've played every AC game except 3, because I haven't felt like following a translation guide.

True. I learned after AC3 that they had cutted almost everything out from the EU release. I really hope they would make translated HD version from the japanese version game someday...

I mark them in different ways.

As far as the in-game experience goes. Gameplay and in-mission story, my favourite is Ace Combat 6 by far.
The huge engagements over multiple fronts, the numerous friendly units that remain your allies throughout the game and actually become familar, being able to use High-G by holding both triggers, the effectiveness of your wingman and allied assault...
Love it all, and the huge dogfight on Weapons of Mass Destruction remains my highlight of the whole series, especially when the friendly squadrons of Wind Hover, Avalanche and Sky Kid show up to turn the tide, all while Fires of Liberation starts blaring through the speakers.

In terms of the cutscenes though, that was all rather sub-par and most of the cutscene voice acting was poor.
I appreciate what they tried to do, telling different concurent stories, but it fell short on delivery. Too many characters, so not enough development.

Otherwise, as the complete package, I would probably say AC04 or Zero.
Shocking I know, but I agree that AC5 had some iffy scripting/voice acting and, honestly, I got a bit annoyed by how whiny my squadron mates were.
Also, I actually hated the way you couldn't select different SP weapons for each aircraft and there were no return lines.

Overall, I would probably say Zero. Loved all the enemy ace squadrons and then their interviews.
When you think about it, Cipher was probably the greatest ace that Strangereal ever saw.
Not only did he take on and beat the best that the Belkan Air Force had, he also did it all in a 'lowly' F-15C (vs Mobius 1's F-22) and a single wingman (vs Blaze's 3).
He also used that F-15C to take on, and beat, Solo-Wing Pixy in the Morgan, a fighter far superior to Yellow 13's Su-37.
And the sound track. Oh the sound track.
One on one with Pixy, the V-2 launching in the background and "Zero" playing.

My favorite is Ace Combat 04, followed by Zero, followed by 5. Infinity is somewhere in there as well. The gameplay of these games was the best of any in the series. As the admin of Acepedia, these games (minus Infinity) also seem to have the biggest stories to them. Sure, some people will downplay 04's, but there's a wealth of information in the PS2 classics and it's all juicy awesomeness. :D

For those of you who don't know: the reason the rest of the world got a scaled-down version of Ace Combat 3 was because the Japanese players hated the Japanese version. They preferred AC2, where it was less about story and more about action. So that's the version we got: less story, more action. It's a case of the Japanese hate their version, so Namco gave us a different version, and we hate it and we want the Japanese version, but the Japanese want our version. Very peculiar. xD

6 is my, and I still play it constantly. Story is kind of meh compared to other games, but each map feels massive enough to have a dogfight with an ace squadron with only your wingman to help across 50+ miles.

I can only hope that Fires of Liberation will get a PC port in the future.
