Scott Lipowitz from DualShockers.com writes: The Ace Combat franchise is a storied one. I mean that literally as well as figuratively. The reason it is so beloved is twofold. The first is that the series has an almost perfect grasp of arcade flight combat. The second is because they are able to tell stories that often rival the best games and the best movies. Ask almost anyone who has completed an Ace Combat game, and you will find that they remember the story better than some of the actual missions. Luckily, the newest game in the series, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, keeps the basic formula while simultaneously making some very big changes to the franchise.
