Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

Being oblivious to updates on games, I've only noticed recently that the latest installment of the No.1 flight simulation game is on the XBox 360. I had been an ardent fan of the Ace Combat series since its first release in the Playstation many years ago. Unlocking new crafts and mastering dog-fighting techniques, I've replayed every single one of them at least once. However, I am slightly disappointed this time that Namco announces its latest installment on the Xbox 360. No, I wasn't expecting it to be on the PS3, but hoping (finger crossed) that it will remain on the PS2 (Ah! no cash to get the PS3 yet...). Namco would probably roll in the AC6 into the PS3 later. Lets just hope that I could afford the PS3 that time.

Being on the Xbox 360, it certainly promises photo-realistic graphics with magnificent views. The quality of it alone is reason enough to buy it. Although the story lands on the mundane "unknown enemy attacking homeland" scenario as with all the previous installment, this does not deter it being the greatest flight simulation game ever.

he game introduces 20 licensed jets, inter alia the F-15 E Strike Eagle, the F-22 Raptor, the A-10 Warthog, and Tornado.

In AC5, Namco introduces commanding options to control 3 of your wingman. ACZero gave you a partner to do skirmishes. This latest installment allows for allied support, mobilizing air, ground and naval units to do your bidding.
