Ace Combat Assault Horizon - Playstation 3 (Game Only)
Unlike many previous Ace Combat titles, Assault Horizon does not set the story in the fictional world, but on a future Earth. The player gets to fly and fight over known seas and cities such as Miami (USA), Dubai (India) or Moscow (Russia). While the basic flying controls are kept, there are many new upgrades and innovations to the known warfare in the series. One is dogfighting where you can tail behind the enemy plane and keep it close to your machine gun. The tailing sequence remains active as long as you can keep up with the enemy fighter, until he is no longer visible on the screen. You can punch the thruster to shorten the distance and make your shots more accurate and destructive. There is also a way for the enemy plane to tail you, even when you are tailing another plane. In such case you can try to outmaneuver it or hit the breaks and make a spin to quickly come up behind it and switch the roles of hunter and hunted. Another addition is the bombing run which lets you enter the bombing zone for a more detailed and easier assault against the ground targets and vessels.
