    Replay value suffers greatly due to the short game length and lack of online play, leaderboards, achievements, and the other various amenities that typically accompany this type of game.

    Ace Combat Xi: Skies of Incursion is a worthy addition to the series for Namco, but too short to enjoy completely.

    Ace Combat Xi has better controls and gameplay than any flying game available on the iPhone. The problem is that the game is over far too soon.
  4. A shocking lack of features sends Ace Combat Xi: Skies of Incursion plummeting well below expectations, gliding by on impressive graphics and polished controls.
  5. Ace Combat Xi's most impressive feat is that so little of the Ace Combat experience has been lost during the jump to the small screen.
  6. If you're in love with the Ace Combat series and don't mind a rather short campaign, then you may enjoy having a copy of the game with you at all times on your phone. If you don't have any particular ties to Ace Combat games, you're probably better off exploring the few other aerial combat games or waiting to see how Gameloft's HAWX turns out.
  7. Poor AI, too easy gameplay and a really unacceptable game length draw the final score down significantly.
  8. It won't please fans of the series, nor will it appeal to the casual iDevice audience. The game can be fun and entertaining but there are far too many hoops to jump through to get there.
