Dogfighting is surprisingly intuitive, but I am also a bit concerned about how unintuitive the helicopter was. Considering Assault Horizon is promising a number of vehicles, I hope there will be proper tutorials to teach unfortunate newbies like me how to survive in the sky. Even the tutorial sequence for the jet was a bit confusing, forcing some trial and error to succeed. Given how much fun I had playing, I do regret not having played earlier iterations of the Ace Combat franchise. The close-range dogfighting sequences are genuinely explosive, and definitely warrant another look at the game. And with multiplayer, I'm definitely going to keep this on my radar.
