Ace Combat is not one of the best known titles in our country, yet it has always offered an excellent story, and even better gameplay in the form of beautiful air battles with a shrapnel of Japanese gunfire. Although it may not seem at first glance, the game offers substantial depth in just a few pages, and it is so engaging that it will attract people unaffected by the series.

The content is plentiful, replayability remains high, and the presentation easily makes Ace Combat 7 one of the better arcade-style flight games on the PC. It has been a long time coming, but action flight fans and those who love the series won't be disappointed by Ace Combat 7.

Ace Combat 7 is a visually striking game with a top tier soundtrack and excellent performance. That said the game is challenging and unforgivable for newcomers but an enjoyable experience overall.

It is not easy to find anything negative in Ace Combat: Skies Unknown, unless one wants to wonder why they did not focus more on missions and less on a script that, even if it was missing, the gameplay would not lose any of its quality.

That said, despite the frustrations, there’s no other series out there that captures the thrill of running around with a detailed fighter plane model in your hand blasting bad guys.
