"Despite the constant gameplay shifts, Assault Horizon still manages to be extremely repetitive. A typical mission will usually involve doing the exact same thing over and over again, with incredibly minor variations on the same themes popping up if you’re lucky.

The best missions are, as you’d expect, the ones in which you’re piloting a fighter plane, which still make up the majority of the game. They suffer from all of the aforementioned problems but occasionally offer up worthwhile thrills and spills as well..."
