4.0 out of 5 stars Good AC addition - much better graphics - DUH PS3 March 26, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In general, a welcome addition to the AC series. Great graphics, the outgoing and incoming fire illuminates the surrounding (buildings, valleys..), the buildings can be damaged and in some cases destroyed an improvement to the old static ones.

The garage is different than the last ones - schematics of pre-canned mechs, but they can be customized. The method is different, not good or bad, just will take some getting used to.

Primary Armor is new, electronic shielding device. I like it, you can hang in a firefight longer and it does regenerate. It doesn't make the game easier, you still get your [...] kicked.

The controls are similar to the old ones (type A), shoulder weapons (like shotguns) are now available than can fire independently are handy for little stuff.

The story line is interesting, but I don't buy games for cut scenes.

I only have gotten to the 4th chapter of missons so far, a 4yr old that wants to play or stands in front of the TV cuts back on the quality gaming time. I also only have a standard TV using S-video, the game supports 720p.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Effort - Not Enough Substance July 25, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Armored Core 4 comes from a long line of mech action games. The simplest thing to say about Armored Core 4 is that if you liked previous Armored Core games, you will like Armored Core 4. Otherwise, the game is a mixed bag.

AC4 takes place in the distant future, placing you in the role of a lone mercenary fighting huge enemy forces with his "AC" mech - the titular "Armored Cores". These mechs are humanoid in shape and carry weapons in their mechanical arms. If you've ever seen a "Gundam" episode, that's the basis they're working with - think a robot that is basically just a giant person in shape.

The gameplay itself seems promising, but gets somewhat repetitive. The ACs have two weapons (one in each hand) that range from assault rifles to miniguns to rocket launchers to laser guns to laser swords. There are also shoulder-mounted weapons like missile launchers and decoy launchers to lure missiles away from you. Control uses a simple left-stick-moves right-stick-looks system, and it's fairly intuitive. The other main gameplay feature is the booster, which is basically a jetpack that can propel you upwards or rocket you forwards or sideways. The main failing of the controls is that they're not particularly balanced; things that should be connected in purpose are set far apart on the gamepad. For example, pressing L2 uses the boost, but pressing L1 switches your left-hand weapon, and pressing square fires the left-hand weapon. The controls don't seem natural even after you get used to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive April 20, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
While the ever-changing garage interface continues, which is kind of annoying, the game play and graphics are amazing (as expected). The controls have been much improved and are very smooth. The auto-targeting and auto-boost features are very useful and the "shields" do help you maintain a few extra battle minutes. Overall very good, I hope it's long enough though (haven't beaten it yet)

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Armored Core series has long suffered gripes and complaints from most American reviewers for pretty much as long as the franchise has existed. It is, however, not a bad title. The thing about Armored Core is that it involves a lot of thinking. A large part of the game revolves around testing parts out, as you literally build a war robot out of hundreds of different parts to choose from, all of which offer varying stats, that leave it up to the pilot to figure out what suits his play style best, and what will help him out the most in missions.

Many people get turned off by the level of depth this game has, which often leads to confusion. Its not a bad title, you just have to be prepared to expect alot of trial and error. Satisfaction comes from completing the often infuriatingly difficult missions [which often turn out you were using the wrong mech setup the whole time] as well as making a very successful robot that trounces competition [other players] Despite poor reviews by those that misunderstand this game, I'll leave it to the fact that this franchise has survived 13 iterations and is still pulling strong, that this is a good franchise, just not for everyone.

Now onto Armored Core in and of itself. It is the most recent game released in America, and for those unsure about this series, this is probably the best one to get into, as by now they have addressed plenty faults from the earlier iterations. The earlier ones did indeed have troubling control layouts, but thankfully it fits just fine on the xbox controller. Anyone who has played Halo or Gears of War will have no trouble grasping the controls, just remember to map the boosting and firing controls to the triggers and not the buttons!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best "Mech" game ever! August 17, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an oldschool fan of "giant fighting robot" games(starting with the original Battletech boardgame waaayyy back in the day) I must rank this game as the pinnacle of of the genre! The ability to customize your Mech's weapons and defenses beats every installment of the "Mechwarrior" franchise (though admittedly the Mechwarrior storylines felt better developed) and I'm not even going to bother to compare it to the lackluster Gundam franchise. The action here is FAST and as one reviewer mentioned some missions can be completed in under 30 seconds, but this is totally a function of having the right Mech design to get the job done. But don't worry if you aren't super-twitchy- there are plenty of missions that can benefit from a slower more thoughtful approach (those with environmental challenges or terrain that can be used to your advantage).
It is the combination of strategy (outfitting and tuning your Mech for a particular mission goal) and frantic fast-paced mech-on-mech combat that manages to satisfy all my gaming needs. Armored Core 4 has both adrenaline and brains. All it needs now is a movie franchise (and after you see the opening cinematic I think you'll agree with me on that one!)

3.0 out of 5 stars was okay, but far from Armored core 2
the overall game works and the box has slight wear which is fine, the game itself has a learning curve thats just rough... one of the harder new games out there.

Got bored of it after 15minutes of game play, but I can see how the customization can be fun...just not that interested in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly unplayable
This game can be fun, but has massive frame rate issues. This game can be rough at times. Still worth a purchase for those who love mech games.
