I loved Ace Combat 6, the story flowed and the levels were fun. I loved it so much that I would play it over and over again. I was excited when I picked up Ace Combat 7, hoping it would be just as good or even better than AC6. Well so far I am bored with it. AC6 story flowed and was easy to follow and the missions were fun. So far AC7 is a mess, to me. The story is all over the place and after 5 missions I am pretty much tuning out the story and just want to play the game. So far the levels are no where near as fun as the AC6 levels. In AC6 we had multiple objectives and tons of enemies to shoot and maneuver against, nor was there a time limit. So far in AC7, the few ground missions I have played, were not very thrilling, not many enemies laying around. Nothing is ever explained and when you have to protect an ally half the time you are searching around for just who the heck you have to protect. I am not impressed with this latest effort in AC series. It seems like they wanted to make a "Cooler game", but in the end just made a mess that is not fun.
