From what I've seen, the great majority, or at least the fair majority seem to regard AC6 as having the best gameplay, for campaign at least.

I wish, actually. I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority with my undying love for AC6's gameplay. Sure, most people's issue with it is the story, but I've never seen its gameplay be that well-regarded, usual complaints being too much air-to-ground, dislike of the new missile mechanics, the low amount of flyable aircraft...

 

Regardless, I still play it once in a while and get reminded of just how mind-blowingly good I find it to be. It's just that 500+ hours of play tend to burn you out on a game. ;_;

Huh, I must've had the fortune of missing most of that then. The story isn't the best in the franchise no doubt, though aside from Melisa, it's not a bad plot. It's actually better than a fair amount of what has actually been released on the 360. Though I've seen it regarded most for its mission structure and actual combat between the ground AI. I could debate the others as well (aside from the smaller aircraft roster, I can understand one desiring more, same in most any simulation really), but it's far too late for that

 

Heh, I'd imagine. I've probably only played for about a fifth of that, though every so often I'll play a mission or two as well.

 

The "AC6 Gameplay Lovers" are a super-exclusive club, apparently.

Apparently.

Could completely understand the complaints about too much A2G, crap story, lack of aircraft but...

 

 dislike of the new missile mechanics

 

I don't understand why someone would dislike the shoot command mechanic for standard missiles though when they rewarded reflexes/positioning and actually made that prompt worth something unlike in past games from what I recall... it just kinda told you "hey, you should press the circle button already"

 

The changes to XLAAs? I welcomed them. Nice, so they didn't just perform like XMAAs that you got to fire away quicker and gave them more characteristics that set them apart.

 

ESM. I can sorta understand, but in campaign it worked just fine- standard missiles have kind of crappy tracking anyway. Multiplayer?  I recall it made TB4 horribly onesided (especially if the host made it just level 2 weapons for some awful, stupid reason) and TB1 a standard missile spam fest as well as the likely QAAM users that are more than likely going to be there.  Then again I could tolerate those missile spam fests just fine as long as the team I had a competent ESM plane

Could get my hand on a free 360 thanks to a friend, so might actually play this soon. Pretty excited by it, hoping this will bridge the wait for Infinity. I'm going back through AC4 to Zero but it is kind of stale sometimes (esp. AC5, for some reason I keep ending crashed in the ground at the end of some of the most boring missions...).

You might want to check out a way I've developed for people to get more use and excitement from the 'legacy' (i.e., PS2) games, as well as portables and XBox360.

Since I rarely find people on AC6 multiplayer, I just play with my Strigon buddies. But I'm also trying to get the campaign medals in order to unlock the third CFA-44 color.

Man, I've been dormant for a while and when I finally surface again on this site I find interesting people

Any chance I might be able to join in on the online fun either on here or on AH?

 

My wings haven't spread properly in quite some time

Heck yeah, lets do this XD


No doubt it wasn't.

You have AC Advance for that, or AH, if you desire to be fair.

 

From what I've seen, the great majority, or at least the fair majority seem to regard AC6 as having the best gameplay, for campaign at least. It's why I usually return to it.

I woulldn't mind returning to it now as well (in addition to Saidaioujou) if I had the time.

Northern Wings is worse than both...

I've heard numerous Rumors about Broth3r and his Griphen and he's one of the few that 1000 pointed AH

And PC has a YouTube channel if you wonna watch his tactics in action. He's also only missing one MP achievement in both AH abd AC6. So he probably has more flight time then me and you combined in those titles
