We adored the game when we reviewed it in January 2019, saying: “If flight sims aren’t your thing, then nothing I say and nothing Project Aces have done will change your mind. But if you’re a fan of the series or genre, Ace Combat 7 is a fantastic experience. I’m still looking forward to trying the multiplayer, but as it stands, the campaign is an instant classic as far as I’m concerned. Exceptional”.
