Assault Horizon has a new "dogfight" mode that is one of the game's selling points. The camera angles are cinematic, the explosions fill the screen, and symphonies signal your epic triumph for the 10 seconds before another dogfight begins. It doesn't take long for this new mode to wear out its welcome, but playing without it makes the missions a bore. The game does attempt to mix things up by leaving the cockpit of nimble fighter jets and instead doing battle in a helicopter or bomber.
