Vector Thrust is now in the full release stage. Some of you probably already read our extensive preview here. Right now the game is still looking great for so many reasons.
Vector Thrust: Excellent Visuals, Amazing Music
The game has impressive landscapes with amazing music to back them up. While cel-shading does not always work with a game the form they used here really did. All the planes look great with a metallic sheen that could only work with that form of rendering.
An orchestral soundtrack also brings a sense of urgency to each battle, really increasing the intensity of each battle. As we’ve said before it creates a real “Ace Combat” sort of feel, another game which is known these improvements as well.
Vector Thrust and Modding
New modding options are a big part of the game. They’ve expanded upon the previous map making options and you can do more than ever. Those who really love this genre can get hours of additional gameplay from this.
Fast-paced combat and dozens of ships (with multiple weapon options) make it a great game for enthusiasts. Whether you love the F-15A Tomcat or the SU-25 you can find some form of your favorite jet fighter here. There are also prototype craft that you would expect in the genre.
Smooth Controls and Additional Missions
The gameplay is what most of you are probably wondering about. It has improved since the earlier version. Now there is a fully fleshed out campaign with voice acting and many of the other modes have improved as well.
Final Verdict: 4/5 Great- Incredible gameplay is backed up by great visuals and a modding system which keeps everything fresh after you’ve finished the game. This is the closes you can get to having a new and highly advanced “Ace Combat” game on PC. Only a lack of innovation from previous flight sims keeps this from being the best one ever made. Be sure to check it out on Steam right now.
