Ace Combat is a video game series, running for 24 years, where the player takes control of fictional pilots who are caught up in the winds of war. Typically, the story progresses in such a way that the player character becomes the most powerful of all of their allied forces, and is considered a legend by the end of the game.Most gameplay in Ace Combat involves the direct control of aircraft, where players will attack or defend from enemy forces in the air, on the ground, and in the sea. The games are also well-known for their massive superweapon battles, which border on the line of fantasy involving massive chemical lasers or large anti-asteroid railguns.
