So yeah.

Personal favorites gotta be Alarm Clock and Sanctify. Alarm Clock 'cause it's pretty much the best of the airborne fortress battles, and Sanctify because TUNNELS FUCK YEAH.

Sanctify is a really good one and they could have made it much better. Fighting the Varcolac in phase 1 while listening the dialogues and the Fire Youngman BGM in the backgorund is f*cking awesome. But they screwed it up with Sulejmani's impossible maneuvres
regarding of phase 2, flying through the tunnels is thrilling the first time, as the countdown drops and your senses sharpen listening to the music (name?), but when you play it again you realise the tunnels are gigantic (you can fly a 747 inside them until you crash), the path seems short, the silos are empty, the background design is s**t, you have to destroy "switches" in order to proceed through, etc.

Sanctify (as most missions) needed more air targets, but was rather good.

Unlike most, I like Grand Flight, both flying the 747 and, perhaps better, with a regular fighter.

The B version of the last mission is pretty good as well, up until Sulej, at least. Even while solo.

The mission in Croatia is great for the part of the game it's in, and Varcolac is pretty damn challenging in it.


And, of course, Ace of Aces.

Sanctify. Why?

Three words: Fire. Youngman. Dogfight.

I got chills and went "Oh FUCK yes" the first time I did it.

Personally, I thought Fire Youngman was garbage. Warning Line (and Dystopia, why isn't it in this game) is better.

*Flamethrower incoming* Fire youngman was pretty good, altho I think that Night and day was better, then again, the whole AC and AC2 soundtracks were both pretty awesome.

Flying against Varcolacc when they weren't holding back the first time & then some interesting tunnels were a nice moment in AC JA for me

Sanctify, sure the fight with the dumbass squadron was too easy (even on ace) but the music and tunnels were fun, even though the tunnels were too short.

Warning Line


Praise the lord, I am not alone!

I do like like FY, but Warning Line is one of my favorites of all time. And considering it was originally used in two night missions, one of them in a thunderstorm, it would have been absolutely perfect for the occasion.

Yeah, the music in AC really makes or breaks the game, its good in many games, and there are several tracks that just brjhejjdbjfbjhkejioirrr arrrrrgggg are baddd.. Yeah, they really skimped on JA's music.

They mixed up a lot of files form AC04, AC5 & ACX as well as a few originals that sounded like a national anthem & occasionally a techno anthem...
It was really hit & miss compared to other games where the music has some sense of consistency with few if any outliers.

To be honest it felt a bit like a patch job in some places, just hearing music I've heard before in some places where it made no sense to play it... I just didn't get into some missions sometimes or at least was take out momentarily...

Yeah, a good example of the mixed up music would be the mission where you have to destroy those power stations along the cost, in the beginning the music rocks, then it changes track to that beeping desert tune, F F F F U U U U U U....

I"m not a big fan of tunnels though.

Sanctify and mission 19... forgot the name though long time no play.The last mission will be unbeatable if Fenrir or Falken was the planes used by the Varcolac squadron.

The last mission was easy, period, even if they were flying the Fenrir or the Falken.
