Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Bringing back the gameplay that the series made famous, Ace Combat 7 soars. While the story may get in the weeds, that's just another reason why this is a return to form.

Uncomplicated but gratifying flying, in scenarios of increasing silliness and therefore likeability.

Ace Combat 7: Unknown Skies doesn't do a lot ot update its classic arcade-style dogfighting, but it does look great and its gameplay holds up for the most part.

The lesser spotted aerial combat genre makes a glorious return in this heart-pumpingly exciting game.

Strong aerial combat, an earnest story, and a varied campaign herald a victorious return to form for Ace Combat.

When it's firing on all cylinders, Ace Combat 7 absolutely soars as a return to form for a series thought dormant. It'll be interesting to see how Bandai Namco might take things forward from here on, but for now, the series is flying high and steady once again.
