Marketed in Japan as a “3D Dramatic Flight-Shooting Game,” Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere is the third entry in Namco’s flight-sim series for the PlayStation, spanning 2 discs with 52 action-packed missions, numerous real-time and animated cutscenes and 5 different endings.
The game is set in 2040’s USEA (the United States of Euro-Asia), a time where governments and the rule of law have been superseded by sheer economic power. Two competing multinational corporations, General Resource and Neucom, have gone to war after years of tensions, engulfing the entire continent.
You begin as a fighter pilot for the UPEO (Universal Peace Enforcement Organization), tasked with suppressing this conflict, but as the war goes on, you discover that there’s more to it than it seems, putting your resolve and that of your wingmen to the test. Things complicate even further when a terrorist group with nefarious goals appears.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and budgetary constraints, PAL and NTSC-U regions received a condensed version of the original storyline, without any characters, branching paths or world-building, resulting in a considerably lesser experience.
