Pretty planes soaring in the sky

Hope you don't mind jumping topics a bit too much ^^;

It's less than 2 weeks before the release of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon on both PS3 and XBOX 360. Those planes in the screenshots really look do look pretty though, which makes me dazzled and stare at them like girls.

Skins of protagonist planes from previous games will be available too. For example Cipher's F-15C from Ace Combat Zero.

Su-37, the plane that made famous in Ace Combat 04 with an ace squadron serving as a recurring enemy throughout the game. Too bad it's a DLC (seriously DLCs are announced even before the game is released?! The same applies for the map Tokyo in the background which will also be a DLC for multiplayer...)

Tornado GR4. Another DLC

Winner of the skin design contest for F-15C "Death Rider" is also available as DLC, but this is free to download which is a good thing.


Fighter aircrafts are like the new girls for me today (wait what?). Photobucket

But on a serious note, graphics really have come through a long way. Just look at this image from Ace Combat 2 that I have taken earlier this month, which was released way back in 1997.

Pretty planes are pretty, but let's hope that the game is good though. It has a lot to live up with the previous games in the series. Demo is available for download, and it seems a little scripted to me. I just hope that the new Close Range Assault is not a necessity to play through the majority of the game, but the final release may be against my wish. Well we shall see :o
