The way things have been going with games I don't think you'll have too long to wait oO

I was really disapointed with the online mode, everytime I got near an enemy plane it would lag for around a second for some reason, made it very unenjoyable.
The single player mode is ok but repetitive.

Downloaded the demo on PSN the other month and thought it was ok but as skykid3 mentions I will also wait for it to drop as games at the moment are dropping faster as still have MW3, BF3 and sonic generations arrived today to add to the pile to play

top game. quite hard too. need to try online now

I won't buy it due to the change of story to a Pro-American one, it used to be fun with fictional nations.

I enjoyed this game, well worth anyones money...

I bought it at full price, with no regrets, I thought it was great. However was quite a linear campaign, didnt take long to complete(sold it a week later), lots of scripted events for example not being able to shoot down planes untill the game wants you to. Some clever fun missions with helicopter and stealth plane added variety to the missions. Multiplayer was difficult to stay connected but was a bit of fun, dont buy it just for the mp. Plane controls were average - no barrel roll in a flight game is unacceptible. Dog fight mode was an improvement over ace combat 6 but other than that I preferred ace combat 6 and would recommend it over this game for the sp campaign. Flight games dont have much competition on console so I would be suprised if this went down to £10 I think £16 is a bargain.

In my opinion the old Ace Combat games got boring and repetitive VERY quickly, but the Demo on PS3 really impressed me.

I think this is a good deal, but I have way to many games I haven't played/completed yet, so I can wait for the price to drop. Hopefully £10 or less would be nice

I had really high hopes for this but it's just more of the same really

It's on my christmas list. I didn't enjoy the demo too much, it seemed to rely heavily on the dogfight mode and the helicopter portion just seemed to go on and on and on!! It's a shame because I have otherwise loved this series.

Ace combat 3 ftw

I've been playing these since PS1. Always loved them. I have sunk SOOOOO much time into this game. Yes it has borrowed heavily from COD and all that, but is none the worse for it. (Anyone want to fly with the angels and kills some "Stovies"?!)

For this price you can't go wrong. It can be repetitive, but if you're after an action-flying game, there is none better IMHO.

Did you set your controls to ORIGINAL? I hated the(default) OPTIMUM settings - but ORIGINAL takes it back to the good ol' days!

Hope that helps.
