Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Video Game Review
- A story mode about 10-15 hours in length depending on the difficulty
- Planes. Lots of planes.
- Brand-new helicopter, stealth bomber, and AC-130 gunship missions
- Online multiplayer with multiple modes, including the new “Capital Conquest” mode
Sound: The voice acting is generally great, with the characters well-acted despite some iffy dialogue and the variety of accents (and foreign languages) being presented. In combat, while some phrases do repeat there’s enough variety that you’re not rolling your eyes at a phrase being repeated for the umpteenth time. Yes, there are multiple ways to yell “You’ve got someone on your six”, and this game thankfully proves it. Anime fans will note Kari Wahlgren voicing the pilot of Spooky 01, the callsign for the AC-130 you’re shooting from.
And in the end, it delivers what we desire most from games: fun.
