We love air combat style games, especially the Ace Combat series. We were really keen on trying out Airforce Delta Strike. Unfortunately, this game is rather poorly made.
First, the graphics. We have many PS2 games which blow our socks off in terms of graphics and visuals. This is NOT one of them. You get bland skies, repetitive aircraft, and cookie cutter characters.
The vocals aren't much better. The voice acting is almost computer generated, it is so lacking in emotion. Sometimes the voices come on top of other voices so you can't tell what either one is saying. They go off on endless discussions that you really wish they'd had somewhere else.
They do have a ton of aircraft available in the game, from old style fighters to modern crafts. Unfortunately, you just don't have a lot of incentive to work through the missions to play with them.
If this had come out five years ago, I might have been thrilled in what it offered, as far as dogfights and combat options. Unfortunately for the Airforce Delta Strike makers, I have a collection of Ace Combat games in my library and I can replay these endlessly if I want to enjoy involving gameplay and storyline. There just doesn't seem much reason to pull one of those out of my machine and to put this one on.
