Hmm, I think a m8 of mine had this on the PS2. I`ll admit it certainly blew me away graphic wise, photorealistic.

But... and there`s bound to be a but...

You get to fire something like 60 missiles and drop 30 bombs, the flight model is ludicrous and might as well be a UFO from the Alpha Centauri, blah, blah, blah!

Great graphics. Wouldn`t touch it with a barge pole.

The arcade name is the secret, hidden clue.

okay we can't win them all

"Forgotten Battles" must be the best, most original name ever made for PC software. "IL-2" is also a great original title.

They say Microsoft does make a fairly decent simulation of computer operating systems. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Wow I would be plenty satisfied if BoB turns out that photorealistic. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

it runs smooth on the 200 mhz CPU PS2 , which i find amazing

considering how powerfull the Xbox2 & PS3 are rumered to be , you could end up with a half decent game on either of them . . . .

. . . . . if someone bothered to make a half decent one **curse this small profit base game i love**

anyone tried Wings of Honour ? (also called Wings of War) , fantastic fun , just as AC5 is

Arcade gameplay complaints aside, Ace Combat 4 was darn fun. If you've got a PS2 and can relax and enjoy some good gaming time at least give it a rent. Visuals were amazing for sure, and Ace Combat 5 looks even better.

yes ace combat aint supposed to be a sim, but i love it, it have a good story and a good feeling to it, sure it cant compete with il2 but as adlabs6 said just rent it, it is a nice game as a change

thats what i dont get how this game looks it runs such low fps compaired to others like fs9 for example with fullworld terrain and much more complicated map meshes, much greater visability distances, buildings and ground targets that dont disapear at 1000m, advanced weather, clouds distance, aircraft having more polygons, real engine sounds etc. Maybe because its on an outdated 2001 game engine.

Hopefully BOB will be a much better game engine for some reason I think it will just be a tweaked fb aep pf small maps same engine but I really hope I am wrong.
