Top Critic Average
Fly back to Strangereal for the next installment in the Ace Combat series. The game is beautifully crafted and takes you on the ride of a lifetime. Easily one of the best flying games I have ever played, I know I will find myself returning to Ace Combat 7 quite often.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown's aerial dogfighting is absolutely exhilarating in multiplayer and might very well be my #1 multiplayer game to start out 2019 once my HOTAS arrives.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a top-notch flight combat game with one of the best VR implementations that you'll ever have the joy to experience.
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!
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.
In Ace Combat 7 dogfighting games have a new Top Gun. The VR sadly turned my stomach, but the series' trademark action is bigger and better than ever, with the spectacular weather effects introducing a level of realism and drama that will win over any wannabe Mavericks.
Overall, I have had a great deal of fun with Ace Combat 7 and while it can be a demanding game at times, it is definitely a rewarding one. So if you want to fly through a beautiful blue sky filled with missiles, while surviving intense aerial dogfights, then Ace Combat 7 delivers on all counts.
Ace Combat 7 is a hugely satisfying, even empowering, experience that's taken to the next level in VR
Though not without flaws, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown manages to deliver an awe-inspiring and action-packed experience.
Twelve years have passed since the last great Ace Combat game. Fortunately, Project Aces have ignored recent failures and instead delivered a game that might be the best in the series.
