Thenpcs: When I received my review copy of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon a few days before launch, it took me by surprise. I remembered the days playing the old Microsoft flight simulator titles and thinking what it would be like to experience jet fighter combat in a wartime setting. Then the Ace Combat series comes along and I have had very little experience with it. I remember playing a couple of the older titles and thinking the games are very fun and inviting and have a great atmosphere. While this is certainly not intended to be a simulation but an arcade flight combat experience. Ace Combat Assault Horizon ditches the fictitious story telling for a real world tale from famous novelist Jim DeFelice.
