  1. Time Ace picks up a little bit after the first few levels, but never quite flies high enough for me. [June 2007, p.119]
  2. Given the blandness of the single-player experience, you'll be better off enjoying the scenery during wireless LAN multicard dogfights. [June 2007, p.103]
  3. But for whatever reason, the game just feels a tad rushed, and while enjoyable at times, there was just too much frustration and repetition to make this more than a rental, at least until it hits the bargain bins.
  4. Flight sims should be great on the DS, but the touch screen feature was sadly underused here, and feels much too clunky and lackluster for today's gamers.
  5. The first problem is the relatively small area you find yourself flying in throughout the missions.
  6. Time Ace is a good game to play one time for a few minutes at a friend's house; it's a horrible game to spend your money on.
  7. 30
    Chief among Time Ace's tripping points: an autoengaging autopilot with a knack for tossing you into buildings if you wander too far from the preset flight path. Add spotty hit detection into the mix, and you end up dying more from crashing into obstacles than from taking enemy fire.
