Shortly after the beginning of the new millenium, deep-space observation led to a chilling conclusion: the Earth would soon be hit by a group of small asteroids. In desperation, the country of Erusea developed Stonehenge, a massive anti-air ballistic weapon, in the center of the Usea continent. The weapon, for the most part, worked. However, after the danger passed, Erusea realized just how powerful a weapon it had. Using Stonehenge, Erusea established air superiority over the entire Usea continent. Conventional ground forces were no match for aerial bombardment from the Erusea air force, and the Independant States Allied Forces (ISAF) were forced to retreat to the island of North Point, beyond Stonehenge's range. Weakened and fragmented, ISAF learns of a final air strike to be conducted on their headquarters and scrambles what few pilots it has left to counter-attack.

After completing the game, the player is allowed to play through the storyline again with all the planes and special weapons they purchased in the previous run-through. However, the developers took special care to make sure the storyline would not be skewed by having a better than anticipated fighter at certain points in the game. For example, at the conclusion of the "Lifeline" mission, the Yellow Squadron planes cannot be shot down, as they are invincible. See more »

Precision Shooting
24 February 2004 | by (St. Augustine, FL) – See all my reviews

Ace Combat 4 is brutal and so spot on it makes you feel like Maverick in Top Gun. The aim is precise and dog fights in multiplayer are a blast. The range of altitude that you are allowed to rise at is beyond belief and combat between enemies is challenging and intense. The control feels so natural that the controller becomes an extension of your arm. the target on the ground are the most challenging while as you lose altitude your aim becomes increasingly crucial. The alternate angles and shots of your plane are crisp and photo realistic. Although it lacks a range in weapons and options it is still a solid game. Highly recommended for any flight sim fan 9/10
