I much prefer this pay $5 up front business to have the complete game. Now do I want this or Pandemic first. lol
Just download the original Ace Patrol and play right up to the paywall. That is 90% of the game. The rest are just recolours and slight stat changes to your planes. Save your money for the upcoming Christmas sales...

Also downloaded Pandemic, but haven't played yet. Too busy with doing overtime on Candy Crush Saga (can you believe the office is already level 300+? Don't these people have lives?), Plague Inc, and Lords of Waterdeep.

I just did tonight but the pay wall hit pretty fast. Have to pay $1 to play more of the British missions. I'll be getting probably $100 minimum iTunes gift cards for the holidays plus another $25 - $50 for my birthday just one week prior to Christmas so not too worried about cash just seems like they are too similar to own both. Guess I may as we'll go for the new one.

Man I need to find time to play stuff, Drive on Moscow I'm looking at you. lol

Don't misunderstand. When you hit the paywall on Ace Patrol, you HAVE already played 90% of the game. The other missions are inconsequential stuff like move that AA town two hexes to the northeast or have those clouds thicker by one hex. Stuff you won't notice because almost all the mission types are in the free part.

Not sure. I play just like 5-8 missions then it says I'm being transferred to support such and such and asks if I want to keep playing the British campaign, if I accept I need to pay $1. If I don't I need to exit and if I start a campaign with anyone else it makes me pay I think $2 or $3.

Seems like a pretty cool strategy game though.

It is. Ace Patrol was great. So good that I bought every single IAP unlock. Then I realised that what I bought made up of like 10% of the game, and one of the IAPs was consumable.

The only other games that made me go, yeah, let's get more of it were the Shareware Wolfenstein and Doom.

Each campaign is the same missions only under different liveries. Only the German campaign was noticeably harder, but the missions were all the same.

Personally, I feel the graphics in Ace Patrol looked better. The sequel looks a bit weird, like it is cell shaded or something. It is also weird because you hear the Japanese pilots speaking English with a faux German accent...

The Japanese pilots' accents are quite assuredly Japanese. I agree about the graphics, though. The first game was the one using cell shading, and I think it looked a lot nicer for it.

Has it been patched? I could have sworn the enemy's voices were exactly the same as in the first game...

Haha thanks. Maybe I'll pass for now. I'd prefer at least a little more variety.

Is this game supposed to be a non save game? I swear I saved the game but due to some erroneous moves I decided to kill app to replay.. I tried loading from save or continue last saved both empty?
