Viel geändert hat sich bei der MS-Fassung nicht, doch kommt die Begeisterung wie damals nicht mehr ‘rüber. Dafür bietet Ace of Aces für heutige Verhältnisse einfach zu wenig, und der Preis liegt viel zu hoch!.
Ace Of Aces è un simulatore di volo che delude, si può considerare un gioco solo per veri appassionati e non garantisco che neppure un amante di questi videogames si possa divertire per più di dieci minuti.

The music has that obligatory WW2 snare drum you've heard all too oft, but it fits very appropriately. This does not enhance the game play in any way, though. This was an ambitious effort, but it just doesn't feel the way it should. By should, I mean good, or well made, or fun. Do yourself a favor and read this review, then burn it.

Oo-er! A flight sim on the Sega. How interesting. Well, it would be if it was any good, but unfortunately Ace of Aces is a sad shambling parody of a flight sim. It's nothing to do with the depth of the simulation. There's quite a lot to do, and plenty of things to blow up, but this is all over-shadowed by the truly awful in-game graphics. Featuring very bizarre grey clouds (portrayed in appalling Jerk-O-Vision) the game is graphically tedious and the slow response time makes taking out any ME-109s you may chance across a very laborious task. The control method for accessing all of the instruments is quite nicely done, but in the heat of battle it's very fiddly and serves just to annoy. The sound is laughable, with a single-note engine and simple shooting noise effects. Even if you're incredibly desperate for a flight sim for the Sega, avoid this seriously lacking game at all costs!
Player One
Bien que les graphismes des instruments soient réussis, la réalisation ne l'est pas. En vol, le sol n'existe pas, vous avez juste une bande qui ressemble à l'intérieur d'un paquet de Chamallow qui clignote (pour donner un effet de vitesse ?) et qui est censée représenter les nuages qui défilent. Quand vous tournez, l'écran bascule à peine de 3 pixels (bonjours l'impression !) et, même allégé au maximum, votre avion est difficilement manœuvrable... Je passe sur le manque d'ergonomie (plus d'une dizaine de combinaisons de touches à retenir). Les pilotes en herbe, sur consoles, vont encore être frustrés !

Immerhin stimmt das Ambiente: hübsch gezeichnete Grafiken, viele Instrumente, verschiedene Aufträge und allerlei Waffensysteme. Leider fliegt sich der rasante Jagdbomber wie ein Tanklastzug: keine Rollen oder Loopings, nur träges Gekurve. Luftkampf bedeutet hier, daß die Flugzeuge frontal aufeinander zufliegen, ohne raffinierte Manöver. Richtiges Fluggefühl kommt nicht auf. Im wesentlichen sind die Aufträge gleich. Alles, was man zu sehen bekommen, ist eine monoton dahinzuckelnde Wolkendecke. Viele knöpfe werden bedient, aber eine Änderung im Flugverhalten spürt man kaum.
