3DS's best air-force combat game to date. The FX in the game are crystal clear. Turn on the surround sound and it feels like you're in the heat of the combat. Music is hugely appropriate. Graphics appeal holds up event after over hours of continuous play (Don't dull out and aren't repetitive). This game makes you want to be in the **** Every aircraft take down is satisfying at least and doing aircraft manuervers are fun to conduct.
This game easily has over 20 hours of gameplay and even after beating the story, there's more missions to complete and dozens of aircraft to unlock.

8In all honestly this has to be one of my most thrilling 3DS titles ive bought so far. Dogfighting above the clouds in 3D is amazing and there's always sense of tension in air specially when you hear the beeping of incoming missile. As you play in any of the games modes you will get experience which give's you different titles that will unlock more stuff for you play with.
The music in game is quite epic to! lots orchestra music and also some other good tunes.
There is enough content to unlock and only the most hardened gamer will be able to unlock everthing. While the game suffers from not having online play or 2 player option....missed opportunity:( This is still exciting & thrilling then most 3DS titles. Pilotwings resort was sunday drive with your grandparents..
But Ace Combat Horizon Legacy is drive in rocket ship speeding straight into the stratosphere
Which do you prefer? ;) Great game all round while it fails in multiplayer area it makes up for it. In thrilling dogfights in palm of your hand.… Full Review »
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy is a remake of Ace Combat 2 but with an Assault Horizon visual / audio theme applied to it. In my opinion that was the best way to do it. It feels like classic Ace Combat but without feeling like an arcade port like the original. Visually this game is lovely and the 3D compliments it well (I do think the 3D generally suits flying games better). I feel the music is at least as good as the original Ace Combat 2 music and fits the game well. Some may not like that it's not the original Ace Combat 2 music. The length of the game is a fair length for the price. You get branching mission options and missions are just about the right size (in most cases) for a portable game. You can easily do a mission on a bus journey then save and pick up where you left off next time you play. I would have liked to see a multiplayer mode. I don't think every game needs but after having it in Assault Horizon, I think it would go well with this sort of game. I think anyone who is a fan of Ace Combat or arcade style flying games will love this. If you're expecting something more like a realistic flight combat sim then you're going to be disappointed.… Full Review »
