Ace Combat Infinity

Postby Omegarex24 » Wed May 28, 2014 11:27 pm

So has anyone else downloaded it yet? I have, and I've been playing it non-stop for the past couple of hours. It's classic AC action, not any of the new Assault Horizon crap, other than oil and plane guts flying at you when you kill something. The only downside is the limited amount of Sortie Fuel you can carry, which effectively limits you on how many missions you can play. There's plenty of opportunities to earn more through completion of challenges, but it's still annoying. And $20 will get you full access to the campaign without the need for multi-player, although you earn far less points/money that way.

BTW, my username on PS3 is RiptideX4 if anyone here plays this and wants to look me up.

It's a solid title. None of that DFM or "authentic military storyline" crap from Assault Horizon. I ended up caving and buying the Campaign Ticket because I wanted to save my fuel for multiplayer (plus support to Project Aces). Managed to play one match so far, and it was quite enjoyable. Still am pretty rusty since I haven't played in years.

Got a boner when I heard AC5 music in the main menu.

I'm a huge AC fan, and it really saddens me to see the series go F2P. It sucks especially with the nice gameplay, Strangereal elements, and classic gameplay.

Ace Combat not you too!!
This F2P stuff really brings me down. :(
Any idea of an actual AC game coming out?

I think I'm just gonna sit this one out for a bit. On the (non matter how)/futile hope a subscription or one time fee is implemented.

Downloaded and played for about 3 hours yesterday. Pretty fun game. Make no mistake it looks, plays, and sounds like classic Ace Combat. Challenges are fun, as are co-op games. Got MVP on my 4 or 5th game. Just a bummer about the payment method...such a good game shouldn't be F2P. I'd take a subscription payment over this. But whatever, they got me. I'll try and play as often as I can. Debating whether or not to actually drop some cash...

I did this for the sake of playing with my brother online while I'm so far. But I did get some genuine fun out of it.

As fun as this game can be at times. It seriously needs more content.

Yeah, I'm waiting for more campaign missions. Or maybe they'll let us fly the F-15SMTD again.

I just want my Su-47 back. Super mad that it's only available for NPCs.

For now. Being a F2P game means they'll have to provide on going content. Be it more campaign or co op missions, different game modes, and especially planes.

I'm sure st some point the Su 47 will be DLC plane.

Ya know, I really hope that the campaign mode will be on going. Since they're nothing but lip service with no features and crap payouts, I figure now the allure can be just a bunch of them. 25-30 is a good number.

There are 8 missions planned for this campaign ticket. I think there might be more added in.

Being F2P, you'd think they would add in an on going story. And the trophy for beating Far Eastern Front is called " Dawn of the Endless War". That could be a sign of things to come. I'm sure this will episodic.

Some good news. The REAL Morgan is available as a random drop.

Yeah. It has way better stats than the Block 1, too.

On a more sour note, I was so close to getting the Wardog F-14. I had a rank of 700 something then fell asleep. When I woke up, the tourny was over and I had dropped down to 1100 something. Curses!

The game is also getting a player vs player mode, and 3 new planes.
