Top Critic Average
I guess what it comes down to with Ace Combat 7 is what you are after in your flight games. If you want to tweak dials, adjust for wind resistance and make the perfect landing, this isn’t the game for you. If, however you want to take on an entire army while dodging lightning bolts, shooting missiles and doing barrel rolls then you should head to the store and slap your hard-earned cash down right now.
Project Aces and Bandai Namco deliver with Ace Combat 7 - Skies Unknown the usual fine package out of spectucular aerial combat, a diversified missiondesign with very well-made controls and a splendid original score, but also struggles with issues in performance and a dull storytelling. Fans of the series and friends of uncomplicated and exciting dogfights still should this one their buylist.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown sticks to the series' formula with some cool additions like VR support
Returning 12 years after the previous mainline entry, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown shows why fans have been awaiting a return to the danger zone for so long. The game features a very enjoyable campaign of respectable length alongside a serviceabale enough story, but the actual gameplay itself and exclusive PSVR support are what really stand out in the high flying Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.
I have a thing with niche games and Ace Combat is a fine example for that, previous entries kinda went a little down spiral but Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown brings the franchise back where it belongs, high in the air leaving competition far behind. I couldn’t have been more happy how this game turned out. So “sortie” to your nearest game shop or the Xbox Store and buy this fantastic game!
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown brings back Bandai Namco's flight combat sim series brilliantly, with thrilling dogfighting and a high level of polish.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a familiar, yet solid entry in the classic dog fighting franchise.
This latest Ace Combat game is the best of the bunch, the product of two and a half decades of refinement as concerns an already excellent formula.
Overall, Ace Combat 7 has hit the skies and it has been a smooth flight with little turbulence.
Project Aces throws a bit too much at their long-awaited return to the franchise and not all of it sticks, but Ace Combat 7 delivers the heart-pounding air combat the series is best at and looks and sounds stellar doing it.
