Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War (also known as Ace Combat 6) is the next installment in the long line of Ace Combat games. Offering a few new innovations to the series as well as crystal-clear graphics and a mean multiplayer, Ace Combat 6 will appeal to veterans of the series as well as attract newcomers.


Ace Combat 6 is arguably not a flight simulation game. If this was the Namco’s intentions, they have failed, as the aerial combat tends to turn out more arcade-like. However, most players will probably not see this as a problem. Ace Combat is therefore an absolute blast to play. Non-fans of flight games will be attracted to it because of the sheer fun of playing it. The planes are easy to fly, controls are easy to find and are well laid out, and there are enough plane, missile, and special weapons options and unlockables to keep players occupied for a huge amount of time.
