Air Combat

First installment in the Ace Combat series, and successor to the 1993 arcade game of the same name. A lot of series conventions were established in this very first PlayStation title from 1995!

I have many fond memories of piloting numerous pieces of military hardware around the virtual skies, dropping bombs on filthy commies (this was the height of the … Continue reading PS2 Essentials: Energy Airforce
