Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Ace Combat Assault Horizon
Ah, the times. You remember Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer in Top Gun, that was in '86. Then a decade later there was AeroFighters Assault (OMG, this sky is TOAST!!!) on my beloved N64 which was equally bad. That pretty much sums up my experience with fighter jets. As you can tell I'm not a Tomcat in air assault stuff. Thus I can't really tell if this is a gutshot for the AC series or not. For me however this polished Medal of Warfare in mid-air sure is an adrenaline-laden and silly (the rail shooting parts in the helcoes are a bad joke) intermezzo with frustratingly bad game design choices (Markov anyone?) and a story that's like a blunt knife. Am I too old for this? I doubt anyone would notice if the game was actually called Allied Assault or Assault Heaven. And besides, where's Steven Seagal when you need him?
