Grab the horizon by the balls

Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our experts review games, movies and tech over countless hours, so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about our reviews policy.

Even if you're a fightin' ace pilot, you're gonna be put through Hell in this war. The Belkans have their own stockpile of rival aces to throw in your path that zip around the sky, dodging missiles with almost no effort. At first you're ambushed by just three - later in the game you'll have five of these crack pilots on your ass, and they are an absolute monster to bring down. During those missions, there's no time to think or plan - it's all survival mode.
