I've purchased a Playstation 2 only so I could play the excellent Ace Combat 4. I still see Ace Combat 5 as the pinnacle of the series, and Ace Combat 6 as a solid current-gen contender. This one is complete garbage. Quicktime events and quicktime-like events where you have to push certain buttons when certain lights flash and hope that it registers (most of the time, it doesn't, and if it doesn't, you die). You'll find yourself in typically desperate situations, but unlike in previous installments where your flying skills separated you from failure, in this one that line is held by random bullcrap quicktime events.

Even if you're an expert at previous installments, here you'll often find yourself in the same predicament as the franchise: a clipped wing, hull on fire, plummeting to your death.

Now that Ace Combat is dead, which developer/publisher will fill that void? Or is this the end of a genre.
