Ace Combat has had a long and venerated history on PlayStation platforms except, curiously, this generation where they’ve  only appeared on Microsoft’s platform. That changes in October with the release of Ace Combat : Assault Horizon, Namco-Bandai’s celebrated combat flight game, which’ll be hitting both HD consoles. That’s not the only change though; There’s a greater emphasis on close-range aerial combat, speed and explosive action steel carnage. Also, HELICOPTERS!

We got to take a first-look at the game at a recent Megarom event, and its new focus is immediately apparent. It’s balls-to-the-wall, high adrenalin stuff that plays, in many respects, like a jet-fuelled third-person shooter. It’s got over 30 licenced aircraft for you to pilot and a narrative written by New York Times’ best-selling military author, Jim DeFelice, so there should be a more to it than just “woosh” and “pew pew pew.” Here’s a new trailer, highlighting the game’s evil air-borne enemy “The Shark”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
