It's "alright"

HappyZavulon | June 14, 2013 | Review of Ace Combat Assault Horizon Enhanced Edition (NA)

This is NOT the ace combat we all know and love, they tried to make a "gritty" and realistic story, that doesn't really work in a series where you tend to blow up huge flying fortresses that can cloak and have a ton of turrets.

The combat is not that great since most of the bosses/squad leaders have to be killed using a special on rails quicktime event in which you have to aim with a very twitchy circle and spam missiles while everything is exploding around you, the whole thing is quite nauseating. Also your health regenerates for some reason.

I'd say that this game lost a lot of it's charm, it doesn't go over the top as much as it used to and tries to be more serious, but things like regenerating health, turret sections that just drag on and on and quick time boss kills makes this game a mixed bag.

A pretty fun game

HappyZavulon | May 28, 2013 | Review of Rise of the Argonauts

If you are into the mythology the game offers and like action RPG's, you are going to enjoy this game. It also offers a nifty dialog system that offers some nice (if not very meaningful) choices. The script was decent enough even though you probably heard this story already and the voice acting was nice. This may not be the best game on the market, but I didn't experience any glaring bugs or broken mechanics when playing this game, the gameplay was smooth, the levels were diverse enough and never outstayed their welcome.
