Ace Combat 7 is an excellent return to what the series is known and loved for. The campaign, while lacking the branches of previous games, is a great story, and manages to deliver that anime cheese factor while still being poignant. The game looks absolutely amazing, and if you’re a fan of airplanes, you’ll enjoy seeing how lovingly rendered they are for this game.
Ace Combat 7: Unknown Skies is a great-looking arcade flight combat game, and zipping over high-quality terrain trying to establish missile locks and evade pursuers can be a lot of fun. But the experience often gets weighed down by its weird and convoluted but persistent story and poor communication of objectives. It’s enough to prove that there’s room for the series to make a comeback, though this game will be not the one to jumpstart it.
I had high hopes for Ace Combat 7 and I ended up getting even more than I was expecting. This is an excellent return to form, with good visuals, a simple control scheme, a simple but decent multiplayer mode, and an extremely replayable campaign. Gone are the days in which the best option to have fun with fighter jets was to play Battlefield 4‘s multiplayer mode. Ace Combat is back, so get your Maverick suit and Kenny Loggins playlist ready!
