8.5/10
Josh Tolentino (Destructoid)

When it’s firing on all cylinders, Ace Combat 7 absolutely soars as a return to form for a series thought dormant. It’ll be interesting to see how Bandai Namco might take things forward from here on, but for now, the series is flying high and steady once again.

A successful return flight for the veteran franchise, with highly entertaining aerial action that remains accessible for new fans and old.

Brendan Caldwell (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

Dumb, funny, exhilarating, varied and full of stupid explosions. Like the drones it summons, Ace Combat 7 is not exactly self-aware. But it is close enough, judging from the humour of its over-the-top action. And it barely matters anyway, because it’s a damn fun videogame.
