I really hope they put out a demo for this on the 360.
Ace Combat Assault Horizon Trailer
It takes two missiles (minimum) plus some bullets to shoot down an enemy, but you're out after one missile? :|
Also, I hope you can disable that missile lock sound. "Yes game, I'm aware that I have a lock on the only enemy in my field of view. It's not like the red square on him makes that obvious enough..."
But I still want this SO BAD! X_X
The music in AC games is fucking fantastic. Can't wait for this.
One thing I don't understand, is the new emphasis on gun fighting. Maybe, though I doubt it, the new game will include a mode where you will not have 185 missiles, because at that point, there really is no reason to use your cannons.
Loved the previous AC games, so excited for that.
I really appreciate how they made it so all the cinematic bullshit you see in trailers is all stuff you can actually do and control in this game.
Though I kind of wish you could play those cinematic dogfights from the cockpit view. That's how I rolled in Ace Combat games, after I got good at them.
I'm a massive fan of the series and this looks great, very cinematic and visceral. But a couple of things, first I guess they're introducing the "dogfight mode" as a way to take down special enemies that couldn't be hit otherwise? It looks really cool, but I can see it becoming a pain if I'm forced to do it over and over again. Secondly, the Ace Combat games have always had these ridiculous ammo counts, with aircraft carrying hundreds of missiles, with this new dogfight mode it seems crazy that anyone would use guns when you'd surely hit them everytime with missiles at that range.
