Zzap! (Feb, 1989)
Great fun for one player but even better for two, this is one of those straightforward, dead-easy-to-play flight games that you just can't afford to miss - no siree, not for £2.99 anyway.

An excellent two-player head to head combat game - very fast, very playable, and more often than not, very tense.

A disappointment after Ace, but still enjoyable for budding combat pilots.

Your Commodore (Nov, 1987)
The action is fast and frantic as daring manoeuvres must be carried out at top speeds. ACE 2 is a worthy successor to ACE and is certainly set to become a high flier.

The fiddly controls are kept to a bare minimum and when you hit the fire button the action starts. Ace graphics and ace sound ensure Ace 2 is a worthy successor to Ace.

I am not saying Ace 2 is too easy, the combat is really hard, but a five year old could fly the thing. Nonetheless it does give you a chance to match yourself against a human opponent and on that basis alone it is in a class of its own.

Commodore Force (Apr, 1993)
Sequel to one of the first ever combative flight sims, ACE 2 radically simplifies the action of the original to incorporate a simultaneous two-player mode. A great idea in theory but the more basic flying makes it less fulfilling to play than the original, and the head-to-head is inferior to Ocean's Top Gun.
59
ACE 2 tries to combine the traditional flight simulator with a fair slice of action - but with the emphasis heavily on the action side. If you like your flight sims to have loads of details like rudder control, undercarriage control, flaps control and so on then you could well be disappointed. Unfortunately the action still doesn't live up to expectations - a limited cockpit view and only two (at most) opponents at any one time dampens the thrills you'd expect from a shoot-em up and fails to compensate for the absence of control options you'd get from a simulator.

Commodore Format (Jul, 1991)
The clinching criticism is a lack of depth and variety: endlessly shooting down planes soon becomes tedious.

Power Play (Jan, 1988)
Wer sich bei Ace 2 eine tolle Flugsimulation erwartet, der wird ganz schön enttäuscht sein. Hier handelt es sich um ein recht mäßiges Spiel, bei dem ich sehr schnell nach ein wenig Abwechslung gesucht habe. Am besten hat mir immer noch die fantastische Musik gefallen, auch die Anfangsgrafiken der bereitstehenden Flugzeuge fand ich toll. Aber sobald man in der Luft ist, wird die Grafik fade. Fluggefühl mochte bei mir überhaupt nicht aufkommen. Immerhin ist Ace 2 etwas besser, als das sehr ähnliche Spiel zum Film "Top Gun". Wer unbedingt einen simplen Luftkampf für zwei braucht: Bitte sehr. Ich verzichte lieber.
