Reception[edit]

Ace of Aces was Accolade's second best-selling Commodore game as of late 1987.[1] Compute! praised the graphics and sound of the Commodore 64 version of Ace of Aces.[2] A.N.A.L.O.G. preferred it to Infiltrator as an Atari 8-bit flight simulator.[3] 1991 and 1993 Computer Gaming World surveys of strategy and war games gave it one and a half stars out of five, calling it "somewhat ahistorical".[4][5]
