Yeah that chopper mission is pretty... well let's not mince words here but bad.

Personally, I think the best mission to use the prop planes is when you're going for the Mora jammer or the power plants since you can't really use missiles anyways. And yeah lol I saw that video too. Also, in the Mora Jammer mission attack, i shot down the blackbird ace with a prop XD


Which chopper mission is this? The one where there's the choppers carrying nuke fuel in all that? I didn't like that one either, but I don't hate it...

& didn't think of that, I'll give it a spin.

Also in that mission, there's this one F-16 that's really annoying, I shoot down his wingman and then when I go after him, the douchebag flies through the area with the Mora Jamming station, which I can't fly through then because of the advanced weaponry and all. Then he flies off the map at high speed.

I hate 'im...

I just didn't bother with him flying a prop plane lol. I only bothered with the copters and maybe an AA gun or two. and yeah, it is the one with the nuclear fuel.

Overall though, i like Joint Assault. I also love how you can tune any and all craft except the 747.

I firmly believe that most of the features of ACJA were the products of the members here at ACS. WWII era aircraft, all aircraft tunable, lots of color choices, customizable emblems (to a point), Infrastructure multiplayer, Co-op Campaign, an enemy ace squadron present throughout the game (like Yellow Squadron), all of these I have seen on our members' wishlists (including my own) for a new AC game before ACJA was ever released, or even announced. Namco Bandai is here, but they're silent, so any concerns you express here can affect the future of the AC series as a whole.

I don't believe we asked for hax aces and a shitty story. The multiple flying fortresses and Ace of Aces were probably the product of ACS' stupidity though.

I do remember asking for a giant aircraft with a force field that required the help of allied forces to take down a long time ago. I was surprised to see something similar to that in here. (Mission 20: Ghost Hunter)

So yeah, I think you're right Raptor. If that's the case, I hope they take heed of all the complaints I've been reading about AH and improve upon it on their next possible release.

But that's another story. Anywho, that is kinda cool though.


And I honestly, I really couldn't give a shit less about the story. I already gave up on any hope of the story being good when I heard this was gonna be taking place in the real world. I said NOPE!

So yeah, I don't even pay attention to it. I just play the game for what it is, and it IS quite entertaining... when the lesser missions aren't putting me to sleep.

And I like the flying fortresses, just fighting big aircraft, bosses in general is fun to me, I don't care how realistic it is or isn't. Yes, it's WTF material, but hey, it's a video game. They could throw in aliens for all I care.

I was joking about that last part. Seriously PA, don't do that, I will never forgive you.

But yeah. They need to take it back to strangereal.

So Boreas, out of curiosity, do you still play the game? We can probbaly fight together since i'm in the market for a partner. or three or four.

Also, to support the theory of Namco looking at these boards, there IS an official Namco account on this very site. I think it's even pinned. We can always hope that they're listening.

Also, I don't think setting it in the real world is a BAD thing necessarily. After all Strangereal took lots of landmarks and places from Google Earth. It's just how you implement it IMO. Plus it's kinda neat to fly around the pyrimids and London.

AFAIR people here asking if su37 or the raptor can do cobra manuever on AC, so there you go..

Yeah I play, but only single player, I can't get online, no wireless points I can get on...

But when I do get to get online with this, I'll give you a shout.

& about strangereal... well, there was so much that could be done with it... it was just that little bit of originality, you know?

What Hornet said. I mean, in my honest opinion, it's not bad, but don't expect it to be on level with the other Ace Combat games...

& Hornet, absolutely. So it seems we're getting a team set up, me, you and Firestorm...

Would be awesome, now if I can just get online...

And it does let you fully tune any plane, and equip a large number of weapons on each.

It's also a far better game than AH is. I just wish far more people play it online.

Well, online is a huge hit for me...
the campaign couldve done better though. graphics could also be a little better. AI could be a little more... feisty... and uh, music could be better if they had new tracks, not using the old AC2 themes.

HECK, THE WHOLE GAME COULD BE BETTER REINVENTED WITH <optional> DFM AND ASF... that would be cool...
AND,,,
they could include every plane ever encountered in the ace combat series, as well as helicopters and bombers...

Yep, I really didn't like Mission 15, 16 I don't care for either, but 15 is a serious mood killer. As for some of the others... yeah they could have been done better.

graphics could also be a little better.



I think it's a slight improvement on X's... I dunno, maybe the graphics used are as much as the PSP can handle.

I'm not a fan of the still cutscenes though...

AI could be a little more... feisty...


Oh yes. In X, they were a bit more aggressive. Sorta.

and uh, music could be better if they had new tracks, not using the old AC2 themes.


Some of the original tracks that were in the game didn't fit. I didn't like this game's soundtrack all too much. Some of it was ok.

HECK, THE WHOLE GAME COULD BE BETTER REINVENTED WITH <optional> DFM AND ASF... that would be cool...


As long as it's optional and the game isn't mainly focused on using them.

AND,,,
they could include every plane ever encountered in the ace combat series, as well as helicopters and bombers...


I like the thought of that.

X is better in some ways, but going back to it after such a long time... just feels different. For one, the aircraft don't seem as fast....
