Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy (Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble in Japan) is an action video game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Project Aces and published by Namco Bandai Games. First impressions of the game were released by the Official Nintendo Magazine in July 2011 and were also leaked by IGN in the same month.[2] It is a remake of Ace Combat 2.[3] Despite the game's title outside of Japan, it is not a direct prequel to the Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Plot

The above plot is fleshed out from the Ace Combat 2. Fearful of being caught in the saber-rattling between the Osean Federation and Union of Yuktobanian Republics four years after the events of the Belkan War, the nations of the Usean continent agree to unite and form a third-force alliance. However, countries in southern Usea consider joining the Osean Federation after it offers to sign a military treaty with them. The other countries in Usea object to this move, but the southern nations press ahead with the treaty. Conservative military personnel in these countries engineer a coup on the day of the treaty signing, and even military forces in the other Usean nations join the rebellion. In danger of total collapse, the Usean government executes an offensive codenamed Operation Fighter's Honor, with the Special Tactical Fighter Squadron Scarface leading the attack.

Although being a remake, the game also features proposed jet fighters like Boeing F-15SE Silent Eagle, and even fifth-generation jet fighters like Sukhoi PAK FA. Some of them previously appeared in the Assault Horizon.

Reception

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy received mixed reviews, with Metacritic tallying up to a 71 out of 100 (from 37 reviews)[4] and Gamerankings 72.70% out of 23 reviews.[5] Nintendo Power awarded the game a score of 7.5 out of 10, stating "Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy may not be a beefy adventure, but because virtually everything that's great about Namco Bandai's long-running series is present here, it's well worth playing."[citation needed] IGN awarded it a 8.0, praising it for "beautiful environments" and impressive 3D effects, but criticized it for a short campaign and lack of multiplayer.[6]
