Product Description

Amazon.com

Five years have passed in the Armored Core story line. The government of earth is rebuilding after the destruction it suffered during the coup led by Leos Klain, Martian rebel. Heavy casualties have resulted in a brain drain, leaving technology and science to languish. Clearly vulnerable, the government mounts an armament campaign.

In an environment such as this, an underground of mercenary factions flourishes. Enter the Ravens, the pilot wing of the Armored Core. They battle in government skirmishes, as well as public arenas, for profits, much like Rome's gladiators. If you can become a high-ranking Raven, your influence will reach beyond the public to affect the fate of the planet. Your mission then is to rise through the Raven ranks and chart a destiny for earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! September 1, 2001
This game is amazing! I've only played it for a few hours and I'm addicted! There's seemingly no end to the missions and the weaponry! There must be hundreds of customizeble parts, each one different and useful in it's own way! Gattling guns to take care of multiple or quick targets, Giant rifles to take care of slow, tough ones, and big missles just for fun! Coupled with great graphics and 4 multiplayer modes, this game has thousands upon thousands of possibilities! Armored Core 2: Another Age is a must-have, even for those who have never played Armored Core (like me!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Tommo does it again. October 1, 2001
Mech combat. We've seen it in Japanese Anime, and the fact that the US military now has bids out for bipedal armor, it's growing in interest. Since I was a little kid playing with transformers and watching Robotech on Sunday morning catoons, I've been in love with the idea. Started playing Mech Warrior as a board game. Customizing mechs to pit them up in missions with friends back in grade school... going out and buying little lead figures and painting them in color schemes to make them look battle fatigued... then when I bought my fist PC and picking up Mech Warrior. It was the first time I could conceive of the concept of piloting a child hood dream. Talk about slow turning, try that game... Then I bought my Playstation, always wondering if they would come up with something for the game platforms. Visiting Six Flags Great America, I found Virtual On by Sega. Again I fell in love. I went to my local game store and they introduced me to something 100 times better... Armored Core. And if you know this history, you'll acknowledge of the trip that we took. Armored Core: Project Phantasma and Armored Core: Masters of the Arena followed suit soon after. The reason that I bought my PS2 as soon as it was released was just to be able to play the game AC2. Sad but true, I had the game before I even had my PS2... That's how much of a die hard AC fan that I am... now with Armored Core 2: Another Age.
What to be said about Armored Core 2: Another Age. Yippie!! I get to get more stuff to cause oh so much more damage to my friends.
Armored Core 2: Another Age gives you over 100 new missions and over 20 new weapons to find. I've already beaten the game but the ability to now play Vs. Missions is a great new feature. You can run into the missions with a friend in cooperative play.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the top July 26, 2001
By rebel
Armored core 2:Another age, Said to have over 100 missions (plan long gaming days, don't forget the bring sodas and pizzas), new parts and weapons (expect to see your old AC from Armored Core 2 to undergo a new look. If you got a copy of Armored Core 2). A must for the mecha fan (Well thats what I call them, mecha instead of mech). I plan to buy this because I got addicted to the Armored Core series and love Mecha fighting. . . P.S. If you want the human plus abilites, and overweight override, get Armored Core 2 and a code book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as the original Armored Core 2. August 31, 2001
After playing Armored Core 2 constantly for months, I found out about the second game in the series for PS2. Armored Core 2: Another Age is basically an expansion to Armored Core 2. It has around 100 missions. I'm not sure how many exactly because I haven't beaten it yet. The missions are even more diverse than on the first game. You are required to save fortresses, attack airborne transports, and even assassinate other Ravens. The AI is much better too. Although that may seem all good, it's not. It gets somewhat annoying having to do missions after mission after mission. The arena is completely gone. The only remnant is a mission where you have a somewhat friendly fight with another Raven. The mission replay value is zero. There are no hidden parts to go back and find. You get them by simply finishing a certain mission. Don't expect too much in the way of new parts though. I've gotten about ten and I'm at 91% completeion. About half of them are variants of other parts(i.e. lightweight chaingun and lightweight grenade launcher). Some missions can be extremely difficult. A later assignment forces you to assassinate a Raven and two of his buddies for selling secrets. You get the pleasure of getting the crap kicked out of your AC from three directions at once. They rarely split up and are hard to kill. You will most likely run out of ammunition before you win. The graphics in the game look the same as in the first one which was slightly disappointing. Not that the graphics were bad, but they should have been improved. The only improvements are the versus mission where you play missions against your friends and online play. You get to control your mech with the left analog stick but I think it's too sensitive to target well. It's a good game but only recommended for dedicated Armored Core fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ravens are back!! July 18, 2001
By A Customer
This is going to be a great expansion game with 100 New Missions and Powerful New Weapons to build up your AC!!!! Armored Core 2 is lots of fun to play (I got the game over 2 months ago and still play it daily). Armored Core 2 lets you build your AC the way you want limited by the money you earned and weight rating of your AC. You can fight the AI ACs in the arena, go on missions and best of all go head-to-head in the split screen 2-player death matches. If you enjoyed Armored Core 2 then this game will be a MUST BUY!
