The Gamplay is very un-origanal. This has something you don't nomally see in an Air Combat game. That is what makes this game AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sound is good, but the grafics could be a slight better. Althogh, I would Recommend that You get Ace Combat 4 first. Thr storry is based around a legend of the demon of razgriz. As shown below: The Legend of Razgriz Whenever history witnesses a great change, Razgriz reveals itself...first, as a dark demon. As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However, after a period of slumber, Razgriz returns, this time, as a great hero.
Amidst the eternal waves of time,
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise,
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon,
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath.
The demon soars through dark skies,
Fear and death trail its shadow beneath,
Until me united wield a hollowed sabre,
In final reckoning, the beast is slain.
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man,
His own blood and madness soon cover the earth,
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz,
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.

Rated 10 out of 10 by zipcord64 Best Ps2 Game I Own
I used to play air combat on the Ps1, the "predecessor" to ace combat, so I saw this game one day and thought whatever i'll buy it and believe me it was one of the best decisions i had ever made.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Blaze <3 Edge The Best War Pilot Experience Ever
this is truely a remarkable game. the storyline was fantastic, the graphics just as good, and challenging enough for experienced and die hard ace combat fans, but easy enough to where the player still on "very easy", could beat it. this game offers every kind of mission, so weather you like bombing the freakin' heck outta places, or shootin down SU-27's with SAAMs, you'll get it all. every aspect of this game is made for intense air-to-air combat at the maximum, most realistic level. as i soon found out, shortly after starting, this game was something special. every single plane has it''s own special abilities, and weapons. so when selecting your, and your wingmen's planes, choose wisely. even still, the overall experience was incredible. the ability to see the cloud you bust through when you break the sound barrier proves that this game is the maximum real, down to the most minute detail. definately a buy for all ace combat, and fighter plane lovers.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mkhatcher All around great game
This game is one of the baest games I have ever played. The story line is what makes this game so good. The graphics are the best I have ever seen for the playstation 2, which just adds to the greatness of this game. The pros out weigh the cons by a landslide. The only thing I did not like about this game was that it lacked a little realism. It takes 2 missile hits to down a plane in this game, and missiles from your enemy are avoided easily, but these are no reason to turn this game down. The storyline is the best I have played, it will keep you wanting more and more when you beat it, so there is a good arcade game you can play. the attention to detail on the planes are out of this world, from the F-14 's wings folding back in after burner mode, to the F-22's internal missile bay opening to fire a missile. This game is great, no doubt about it, so go buy it and see for yourself.
Rated 10 out of 10 by sadeyes Great story and great overall
I bought this because i have played ace combat 4 shattered skies and i was blown away. this game has everything i want in a game. the graphics are some of the best i've seen on ps2 and the story line is even better. the story line has some twists that will keep you on edge. there are two places where there are two missions . for example there might be a mission 12a and a 12b so it may be a good idea to play through the game twice. the AIs are challenging and more often than not you will be put in a situation where yo have to think fast and fly through some tight spaces. along with the ace combat tradition there will be some parts where you have to fly big planes through small places. don't worry though it's not too hard. i love this game and there are a lot of planes to choose from and you will never get tired of playing.
Rated 9 out of 10 by rock66 awsome
Ace Combat 5 is a very challenging game, but it it very fun. The planes are so relistic that it feals like your flying a real plane. There is over 30 missions on campaign mode and on arcade mode, you go through level one by one as you defeat it. The storyline in campaign mode was constructed very good. You fly through mission rather easy or hard. The characters speak through the radio as if it was a real battle. Before and after you start a mission, they show you short videos about what is going on in the story. You can fight planes, helicopters, bombers, ships, hover crafts, sumbmarines, AA guns, tanks, SAM missles, and a hole lot more. You can shoot guns, missles, rockects, and you can drop guided bombs and un guided bombs. Mainly, it's just awsome.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Razgriz1 Perfect for anyone who loves ace combat
This is game is amazing!!!!! If you played ace combat 4......THIS IS A MUST-HAVE. Not only thus it has the unsung war story (campaign) but it also has the continuation of ace combat 4 in arcade mode. The unsung war is more than what i expected. the story is full of SUSPENSE and WAY BETTER than the story of ace combat 4. They also installed the wingman control (which you use with directional buttons). But sadly you can't see your airplane while in flight (neither can you see yourself in the cockpit). Either way, you should get this game cause it will not disappoint you at all!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Razgriz1223 THIS GAME BEGS TO BE PLAYED
Ace Combat was a big improvement on the graphics and was the first ace combat game to have movie-like cut scenes. You play as a pilot nickname "Blaze" or "Kid". During the story take place in the Ace Combat World. The game xplains a legend known as "Razgriz" It was said when history witnesses a great change Razgriz appears as a dark demon. As demon it rains death upon the land and disappears but after a long period of slumber it returns but not as a demon but as a hero. This game had the best story i've ever heard. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS GAME!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by gamer14 Great, long-lasting game
I have had this game for about 2-3 years and never once have I thought about returning it. This is by far the best installment of the series, AC4 and ACZ were also amazing (not taking anything away from them), but AC5 you really felt as though you were immersed into a story line that just kept growing with each sortie. The graphics were amazing, sound was spectacular, and the gameplay did not disapoint. If you still own a PS2 (which I do only for the Ace Combat series) then you should buy this game for its unjust cheap price.
