Dear Namco

Why the fuck does Ace Combat: The Belkan War suck so much in comparison to your previous effort, Squadron Leader (PAL)/Unsung War(NTSC)? (No I don’t know why they changed the name either.)

I think because it is mainly a prequal to said game yet only VAGUELY connects to the story in Squadron Leader, the only thing really connecting it being the fact that seven nukes are set off by the Belkans. Could it also be the fact there is pretty much fuck all in variety in the missions in comparison as well? Or how about that your SINGLE wingman is a complete and utter tosser in comparison to the likeable, if somewhat overly-dramatic, four man squad from the previous game?

Look you already screwed up Starfox, don’t bugger up one of your own franchises as well.
