Ace Combat 6: Xbox 360

Anyone playing? Anyone? Bueller?

It's pretty fun so far. I'm only 4 missions deep though. As a fan of Ace Combat 1-5 (I haven't played Zero yet) I like 6 a lot. Online mode is what I've been playing most though. FINALLY we get to have dogfights online! The last time I played online dogfighting it was on Janes Israel Air Force game for PC about 10 years ago. And that was dial up! So this is awesome. Haven't been doing too bad. Worse I've gotten is 3rd place in 6 on 6 Team Battle. It is pretty much fire your missiles and evade. You do die often. Very often but it's fun so far. I'm surprised how easy it is to get into matches and have had zero lag so far. Anyone else into it?

I think my local best buy recieved the Canadian version because the cover has english and french all over it. The description on the back cover is all in french.

I bought mine at Gamestop and it's the same way.

I'll probably pick it up after:

1) I get my 360 back from the repair center
2) I get my fill of Guitar Hero III
3) I get my fill of CoD4

That probably means after Chrismas.

I looked in other forums and it looks like this bilingual cover art mix up is a widespread problem. I will not be buying until I find one that is normal.

Why? What difference does it make if the box art is bilingual?

The french text plastered all over the cover is an eyesore.

I might rent it sometime. It looks pretty good.

I like flight games, but the Ace Combat series has never done it for me.

Mine just arrived with the flight stick. I opened it all up but won't have a chance to play until tonight. I didn't realize it cam with a full throttle, etc as well (and 360 faceplate, which I may or may not use). Solid equipment. I'm drooling already and can't wait to play.

It's awesome. I don't have the flight stick though. I have beat it on normal and am going to try again on hard to unlock some more stuff. The story is pretty cheesy but that's a staple of the Ace Combat series. The missions though are epic. Very long for the most part but luckily there are save points so you don't have to start from the beginning of a mission if you die. Even if you have 100 missiles there are so many targets you will run out and have to either go back across the starting line to rearm or land on captured runways. Great game.

Can you post a link to the set you got? It sounds cool.

This is the bundle with the flight stick. I'm pretty sure the faceplate was only for EB/Gamestop pre-orders.

I ordered on Amazon and got the faceplate. Not a preorder either. It may be in all the flightstick combos.
