Product: MetalStorm: Aces
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Multiplayer, Shooter
There's always something exhilarating about airborne combat. Dogfight simulators done right can create the perfect mix between the tension of the chase and the satisfaction of the kill.
And while MetalStorm: Aces doesn't quite get everything right, the relief you feel as your missiles crash into the side of your opponent and he explodes in a shower of flaming metallic chunks is almost palpable.
There are struggles on the way to that relief, and the simplification of the controls might leave flight sim fans a little bored, but if you're looking for a solid arcade blaster you could do much worse.
A simple and entertaining airborne blaster, MetalStorm: Aces isn't revolutionary, but it's pretty enjoyable
