Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation
4 Star Review  GameZone - Oct 23, 2007

Namco’s Ace Combat series has been a long time staple in the gaming industry, standing as one of the few flight-sim based games to come out for any system. Now the series is making its debut on next-gen hardware, as Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation hits exclusively for the Xbox 360. Already not-too-shabby-looking on the PS2, Ace Combat 6’s gorgeous plane models and effects look dazzling on the Xbox 360, and the controls are easy to grasp for experts and newcomers alike. While the story elements are pretty cheesy and the dialogue is groan-worthy, the kinetic pace and great controls make this a flight-action game that’s worthy of a spin for any Xbox 360 gamer.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Mar 5, 2009

Ace Combat is a well loved series that mixes semi-realistic military fighters with over-the-top situations and exaggerated melodramatic scenarios. Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation is the sixth release in the AC franchise, the first to be released for the next-generation consoles, and the first Ace Combat to appear on a Microsoft console. AC6 continues the tradition of previous Ace games using the increased power afforded by the next-gen console to offer improved graphics and scale. AC6 is also the first AC game to offer full online multiplayer supporting up to 16 simultaneous players in a variety of modes. Gameplay You take the role of Garuda 2, part of Gracemarias military air force, and head of the Garuda Squadron. In this position you get access to a variety of planes, and can customize their loadout using unlockable weapons. The planes are a mix of real, such as the F-22 raptor, and ... PROS: (1) Ambitious cinematic presentation (2) Gorgeous graphics (3) A lot of chaos happening on the battlefield (4) Stirring music (5) Fun multiplayer built on solid gameplay ... CONS: (1) Menus are very basic (2) Cinematics are VERY cheesy (3) hard to win multiplayer with few people

Good Flight Game
3 Star Review   By member jdmrknight - Jun 20, 2008   

Strengths: Good if you like flying around and shooting

Weakness: None so far

Purchased this for my boys. They liked the game but it is not one of their favorites. They are more into Halo and Call of Duty. You basically just fly around a lot and it really didn't hold my boys attention very well. Probably one of the better flying games though.

Fun flying action
4 Star Review   By member mchenowe - May 28, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent graphics and sound, enjoyable gameplay

Weakness: Leans toward arcade play for those who prefer more simulation realism

Seeing that this is one of few flight games for the 360, it is a very good game. The visuals of the jets and the sky are outstanding. As is nearly always the case with flight games, the terrain looks good from a distance, but when you get closer it becomes blurry and a little blocky. If you enjoy tons of action and a less realism in aerial combat games, this is the game for you.

Ace Combat 6 (360)
4 Star Review   By member amungiel - Jan 27, 2008   

Strengths: - fantastic graphics - fun gameplay

Weakness: - only 2 maps for online coop - missing realistic setting for hard core simulation fans - bad translation from japanese to english makes for some awkward (but fun, lol) dialogue

This game fills a HUGE void in the xbox lineup. There are not too many airplane shooters out there, and this by the far is the best. It has graphics that look awesome on any tv, but on a plasma, you'll be in heaven as you soar throgh the clouds!!! Fun, fast-action, but it also allows for some freedom of choice over what objective to choose which impacts the outcome of the battle. Engrossing single player mode, plus online multiplayer. Only major downside for me is that there are only 2 maps where you and your friends can team up against the AI. There are more maps where you and your friends can battle up against other humans, but I prefer fighting with my friends against the AI. Definitely recommend it to anyone who likes airplane shooters and has felt neglected by all of the other titles out there. Even FPS (first person shooter) fans should love it. Note, if you like simulation games, this may not be your cup of tea. The game sacrificees a few things to make it more enjoyable to play like no black out, red out, fuel restrictions, and an unrealistic amount of missiles. But for me, if they made it realistic, I'd be bored, since most real modern dog fights last less than 5 minutes!!

Ace Combat 6 (Xbox360)
5 Star Review   By member Rob26Smith - Jan 7, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent smooth controls, Looks fantastic, Great arial fighting, Great multiplayer modes

Weakness: Still Looking

This game is excellent!! The smooth controls, great graphics, and online battles make this a fun game to play. I was skeptical at first thinking this could be a flight simulator type of game with hundreds of buttons you must use, but it's the complete opposite. This is a fun, simplistic game that offers hours of enjoyment in the single player campaign as well as ever lasting fun on xbox live. I definitely recommend this game for everyone and it's a must have. Big thumbs up.

Ace Combat 6
4 Star Review     

Strengths: Great graphics and really fun dog fights. Really intense battles. Awesome online experience! More frequent checkpoints make it easier.

Weakness: Camera angles can become annoying. Enemy planes are a little too easy when not online.

This is one of the best fighter plane games i have ever played. It is definately worth buying. It is very addictive and a load of fun when playing online.
