Game Description:Duck and cover! The preeminent aerial combat series from NAMCO BANDAI Games is delivering its next installment in summer 2010 with the all-new ACE COMBAT JOINT ASSAULT for PSP (PlayStation Portable). Featuring accessible and exhilarating gameplay, incredible new benchmark visuals, an engrossing single player campaign and comprehensive online multiplayer options, ACE COMBAT JOINT ASSAULT will once again remind the world why the ACE COMBAT series is the reigning lord of the virtual skies.
Developed by the renowned Project Aces development team at NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. in Japan, ACE COMBAT JOINT ASSAULT is the latest in the acclaimed ACE COMBAT series of flight action games, and the second to appear on PSP following ACE COMBAT X in 2006. In the brand new ACE COMBAT JOINT ASSAULT, the nail-biting close-quarters combat and incredible visuals are completely re-designed to deliver maximum intensity and an accessible and fun experience for any fan of flight action.
Set in the skies over familiar real-world locations including Tokyo, London, San Francisco and more, players will step into the shoes of allied pilots and set out on numerous original missions to obliterate the enemy in fierce tactical dogfights. The new 'Enhanced Combat View' makes the intense combat more dynamic and believable to the player, making full use of the vast aerial environments to produce an incredible high-speed sensation and let players feel the raw exhilaration of delivering ace shots at supersonic speeds. All-new multi-strategic AI evolves the mission flow according to the player's choices throughout the campaign for an even richer depth of gameplay experience.
Alongside the new gameplay features, the team has focussed on producing the best visuals ever seen for a flight game on PSP while also significantly ramping up the online functionality. Multiplayer gameplay lets ace pilots get even with their foes in the eight player online versus mode, or cooperate with up to four friends in the co-op campaign mode. Let the tracers fly.
Ace Combat: Joint Assault rights its predecessor's wrongs on the PSP by mixing in some great co-op action and a hangar-full of jets. But, is this otherwise familiar effort worth strapping in for again?
