Vector Thrust reviews and comments

Early Access Review This game really reminds me of the good old ace combat i used to love. The editor is a great idea and ads tons of hours of gameplay. The selection of planes and the AI make this game a good choice for ace combat veterans as well as for other players who enjoy some arcade style simulator. Since it is early accsess there are some flaws and the content should be extended. Pros: -Good AI (some really good maneuvers and great dogfights) -Great choice of planes (different eras and types) -Replay value (if you use the editor) -Cell shading grafic looks quite good (at least when you look at the planes) Cons: -Grafics of the maps are kind of ugly right now -Some flaws ATM (enemy planes can "bounce" from ground for example) In a nutshell: If you liked the old Ace Combat series you should definatly give it a try.

It's a game a bit like ACE combat but on PC. I'm going to do this in a very synthetic way: the most:-a super-detailed editor with scripts and any story to personalize everything. -Full of airplane and boss like in the ACE fights! -A multiplayer game mode. The less:-the farm to buy new airplane that can really be tiring to force-the bug heap of the game, it is ULTRA bugged. I've never seen this before. Example: I run my game, I go in multi with a colleague. Hop, one of us to crash. OK so we raise everything is fine and then at the end of the game HOP! The game to crash but this time for both of us. And then it's that the bugs of the multi mode I'm not even talking about the campaign! I recommend this game because it allows us to wait for ACE combat 7 but really do like me, wait for it to go to €5 otherwise it will make you weird to pay €23 for a game bugguer to death

Clearly inspired by ACE combat, this arcade game in air combat had everything to please the fanboy that I am. Admittedly the app is closer to a BETA version than a V 1.0, but for 20 golds (at the time), the dev ' promised us a marvel worthy of competing with the license of Namco. And buying this game in BETA was for those interested a way to encourage the dev ' to persevere in their work. And the result was frankly promising: from the rather clean cell shading, a physical elements not gross, an impressive number of aircraft (and increasing), a beginning of the campaign stammering but a start anyway... And then... nothing more... No more comm ', more update... It will be almost a year that the dev ' have not given a sign of life and that the game is abandoned, with its bugs, its missing planes, its missions not terminable (and even some non-commenable)... Currently, the game is sold €4.50 (until 05/07/17), which in its current state, few argue them if you like the genre and style. If this is not the case, wait for a final version to come out (which will probably never happen). Otherwise, you will have the impression, like me, of throwing your money through the cockpit.
