  • The Namco arcade game 'Air Combat' was the inspiration for this PSX game, but this is a separate game. This game is the first game in the Ace Combat series, and has the simple fun dog fighting gameplay that the series is known for.
  • A couple of missions later, I have a good feel for what this game is. It has both dog fighting and ground missions. The weapons are simplified to machine gun and missiles, and on Easy mode, you have a huge supply of both.
