    A fantastic campaign mode, a VR mode so great that it should go down in history, and so many other aspects make Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown an incredible package. However, it helps to be familiar with the series in order to savor its greatness.

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown finally fulfills the expectations of those players from my generation who loved Ace Combat 04 and 5, bringing the series back to its roots in a masterful way. While there are a few relevant innovations, the good folks at Project Aces kept their eyes and ears open and listened to the fans of the franchise who wanted to return to Strangereal and to the Ace Combat that we know and love.

    Neither newcomers nor long time Ace Combat fans will be disappointed by Skies Unknown.

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a top entry in the long-running series that sees a return to the PS2 glory days. The war opera story is enjoyably charming, despite a rather flat cast of characters, while the gameplay is, crucially, as dramatic and slick as it's ever been. Online multiplayer and PSVR are both implemented well, and serve as great companion pieces to the main campaign. Whether you’re a diehard fan or coming to this game fresh, Skies Unknown is a joy, and a series highlight.

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a fantastic return to form that benefits from modern console hardware, making a more dynamic air combat experience. The story, told from different perspectives on both sides of the war, has a tendency to be too serious and overwrought to the point of hilarity but I always give it a pass because it’s so endearing.

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a solid experience for fighter plane enthusiasts, but it plays things too safe. Sticking to a tried-and-tested formula that has ensured the series' success and continuation for nearly 25 years is a sound strategy, but it lacks in innovation and any new exciting creative direction.

The team behindThis is the game that all fans were waiting for a whooping 12 years. This is a piece of an art, polished to a highest degree. The team behind this are professionals and their passion for the airplanes is absolute. Visuals and soundtrack will completely blow you away.
    Gameplay has a great value of replayability without getting you bored.
    Don't buy this solely for VR, enjoy the story instead.

    I love this game and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Hell of a lot better than War Thunder, for me.

    Ace combat 7 is what we have been waiting for. The game has brought back what made the series great. It reminds me more of ace combat 5 inAce combat 7 is what we have been waiting for. The game has brought back what made the series great. It reminds me more of ace combat 5 in terms of how much depth it brought, but of course this has been expanded greatly on the newest generation.

    I have been taken back to my first Ace Combat game, (AC2), where I was truly blown away by the graphics, mechanics, and overall polish. This new title has stepped its game up greatly from AC6, and is now the single best air combat based game to beat.

    As a ace combat fan since ace combat 4 I love the games i'm not a hardcore fan but what i think about in games like this is it's worth the $60As a ace combat fan since ace combat 4 I love the games i'm not a hardcore fan but what i think about in games like this is it's worth the $60 because it has that much content unlike big triple A games these days it's fun and has a very great story that ties into previous games and i will replay again because with all the aircraft and different choices for weapons and parts that let you play how you wanna. The only problem i have with this game is the checkpoint system is if you are close to beating a section of the mission and crash or get shot down you have to restart the whole section but ace combat games have kinda always been like that but i also believe that it also makes you a better playing in doing so so this game is fun and i highly recommend it Expand
