Ace Combat 6

Post by shirou.sama »

Any fans out here for the Ace Combat series? I am, but I'm horrible at these type of games but they're still fun to play.

I received my weekly dot-anime mailer and noticed they uploaded the trailer: https://www.dot-anime.us/feature/ac6.html

It looks absolutely stunning.

I've been a fan of this series for quite some time. Haven't played much of the PS2 ones though asides from The Belkan War. I'll be looking forward to the next installment

They are flight/combat sims. Though takes place in fictional countries, the dogfights usually mimic real world wars. They also use actual plane designs which makes it awesome for flight-sim lovers.

Oh my word! I'm in love with this game, and i'm so good at playing it too (I mean taking out the bogies, then I get stuck on trying to put out the deadly gas -_-;). It’s so realistic and cool. But i haven't seen the 6th one yet i play the 5th one.

Realistic isn't a word I'd use to describe Ace Combat, considering you are usually tackling absurd objectives (like in Ace Combat 3 when you are shooting down enemy sattelites. in space), and you are given approximately 40-100 missiles and an unlimited amount of vulcan ammo.

Oh beleive me I'm can't wait.... I still play Shattered Skies alot myself. That brings back memories like the on night I was on duty and I had the PS2 hooked up to the ready room TV... The officer of the day was one of our pilots and he had showen up and watched me play. Gave me a bit of a hard time because I was using the SU-27 instead of the F/A-18....

So they were using real life jets in space to destroy satellites? Odd.

I didn't think of that :roll:
But it's cool that you have about 80 missiles, it's better then just 6 what a real jet would hold.

There are some very cool jets though, like the F-14 Tomcat, F-18 Hornet and the MiG 29.

I have always liked planes, thats why i want to be a pilot.

To be fair, that mission did use a spacecraft of sorts. Considering it was armed with a laser, I doubt it was a real fighter. But for the most part, the vehicles in Ace Combat are all real.

And personally, I'd rather have 6 missiles. Makes it a bit more realistic and challenging.

I agree. What would you rather play: a hyper realistic game that is so real it's boring, or a highly unrealistic game that is fun?

Anyway, in some cases, game developers need to add an unrealistic touch to make the game funner.

Example: Oblivion. You can eat in Oblivion, but you don't have to. Besides, if they made it realistic in the way that you had to eat or you would die, it wouldn't be any fun, as the game day is much faster than a real day.

Example 2: Oblivion. In Oblivion, if you kill a monster 4 times your size and it was wearing armour, you can then loot that armour from its body after you kill it and wear it. In real life you would not be able to wear it because it would be 5x bigger than you.

Long story short, game dev's like to add realism to their games, but they lean closer towards the side of practicality and fun more than realism. Because, like you said, real jets can carry about 6 missiles, but in Ace Combat they have around 80. This 80 missile thing was done so you don't run out of missiles super fast and get annoyed when you reach a part that needs missiles.
