4  |  Aero Elite Review (PS2)
Raindog , 3/30/2003 10:26:00 AM

Let me begin by telling you that Ace Combat 4 was the crack rock that hooked my lazy Cheetos eatin' aaa to the PS2. I LOVE THAT GAME! This lead me to search for the next high in flight simulation (stimulation?). With Aero Elite tucked under my arm, I left the video store with "Danger Zone" (think Top Gun) on auto repeat in my head. With a cold "grown up" beverage tucked 'tween my feet and and my lucky hat on, I sucked the orange Cheeto powder from my fingers and hit the start button.

Sadly disappointed by the incredibly easy training session, I continued to the arcade version of the game. I must admit - the drive home from my local rental store proved to be more exciting than anything I would witness in my next hour of gaming. One boring mission after another filled my life with nothing more than a case of nausea and a slight hangover the next morning.

I guess it narrows down to this....I feel sorry for the schmuck that rents this game from their friendly Block Buster, let alone spends fifty smackaroos on this game. Controlling this game compares to guiding a push pop threw a blast furnace; it's a little slow and very sloppy. The difficulty level is slightly biased towards those who are less mentally blessed than the common house fly.

I have to admit I didn't spend much time on this game but I have a totally legit reason.... I had better things to do - like clean my shower drain or maybe clean the bugs left on the window sills from last Fall's cool breath. Over all, I reckon I can give it a 4/10 (Highway to the Nursing Home) --RAINDOG
