I been playing Armored Core since sony gave birth to PS1. not a hardcore fan, just following my own tradition of games, same goes for ACE COMBAT and RE(Resident Evil) enough with that.

5 stars - I was very stunned after playing this game for about an hour.

CUSTOMIZE - Customization of your Mech is very detailed, every aspec of equipment you add to your mech required little though of making sure that its stable. which means if you carry a heavy right side shoulder weapon, it would be in your best interest to even the weight by adding a heavy left arm weapon, left shoulder weapon, or add a stabilizer would greatly improve the balance of your mech.

STORY - at the begining of the game your a mercenary mech pilot. you need to pick one out of four companies that will determine which mech you will be using. NOTE*(you will be able to pick whatever mech suits your style later thru the game.)

MISSIONS - depending on which mission you take and accomplished reveals your role thru the game either for "lets abandon the earth later" team or for "lets stop them from living in the sky" team.

BOSS BATTLE - Monstrous bosses, most of the boss are 5,000 times larger than your mech. With that said, you mostly like need to detroy a certain area of the slow moving monster to accomplish the mission. some are not so easy to do, coz they can obliterate your mech in just 3 or 4 hits. strategy is a definite key to success.

RANKING - Your not a super skilled pilot, so you start out as a nobody thru the story mode, Ranking battle is a ladder from ranked 30(lowest) to 1(best) and if you play the role of "lets stop them from living in the sky." you will be introduce to another ranking battle from 12 to 1. I can't quite remember.

Chances are that if you are reading this then you have played an Armored Core game sometime in your life and it is equally likely that Armored Core 4 was not your first experience with the series. Armored Core has always been easy to understand, frustrating to learn and difficult to master. But, above all, Armored Core has always been rewarding to play. The core concept of every Armored Core game is basic- take missions, get paid, buy parts and repeat. As simplistic as this concept is it is truly the challenge, execution of concepts and mechanics of play that makes each game worth picking up. Armored Core: For Answer certainly delivers. AC: FA not only takes the world that was introduced in Armored Core 4 and expounds upon it but also introduces more fluid control response and many new features.

AC: 4A not only offers veterans of the series a bit of hope for the future and a good bit of challenge; it also offers new comers to the series a good place to start. The Vanguard Overboost adds a fun little mini-game-esque feature, and yet manages to avoid being trite by only being present in a few missions. The addition of Cooperative play makes for a whole new level of game play. In the past, the only multiplayer feature available for Armored Core was AC VS. AC arena matches. The only exception is AC2: Another Age- but even the very few co-op missions in that game were "co-opetition" normally ending with the best pilot standing. Having a true Co-Op feature in AC:FA means not only can two experienced friends play together for fun, but a less experienced person can enlist the help of someone else in order to complete a difficult mission. This obviously could help eliminate some of the frustration that newer players may experience when they get stuck on a level.

First of all this is not going to be an in depth review. OK, I never liked any of the other armored core series. There were too many buttons to remember. However I loved this one. You can configure what each button does as well as what each thumb stick does with the key assign option. When you start the game you have 4 companies to choose from. The one you pick decides your starting NEXT(Mech). Within these 4 companies are 42 missions. When you start with your company you are presented 3 missions (after you complete the basic mission). From what I have seen sometimes when you finish a mission you lose the chance to play the other missions. Meaning you would have to go back and play through in order to beat those levels. NEXTs can be customized with paint jobs, weapons, stabilizers, etc. Basically there is a lot of customization options in here for the units. Almost everything in the game can be destroyed and the controls work really well, very fluid. AI can be very hard at times but that is in the later levels where they expect you to be better. Besides doing missions you can also climb the arena ladder to become the No. 1 NEXT pilot which grants you money/NEXT blueprints to make an exact copy of the opponent you defeated. I haven't tried the online matches yet, however, there is 2 player online co-op. To play certain levels in co-op either you or your buddy has to have completed it already. Also, there is at least one level that I know of that you can't play in co-op (I think its because its story related). In conclusion, this is a great game. When I first got it I played for 4 hours straight. Really fun and addicting.
