The game is fun and supports a variety of play styles (missiles or guns? Heavy or light?) with a wide variety of parts. There are even quite a bit of blades for melee combat and some ECM and counter-ECM gear. Configuration is fun and a huge part of the game.
The game features many large enemies such as naval vessels and quite a few huge arms forts. These forts are gargantuan in size and really fun to fight since they give you something to unleash loads of ordinance on that doesn't dodge out of the way rapidly and can blow you away with its immense firepower.
Although this is apparently a staple of the series, I didn't like the fact that I was limited to firing only three weapons at a time (left, right, and shoulder mounted weapons). You can swap between your arm weapons and back mounted weapons, but you can't fire your arm and back weapons simultaneously. This made me feel that perhaps the people who designed these awesome robots never thought of the idea that someone might want to actually fire everything.
I guess my last mech game was MechWarrior so I'm spoiled that way. Another staple of the MechWarrior series missing in Armored Core is the first person cockpit view. It seems like it'd be very easy to add (just move the camera forward a bit and hide your mech. Maybe add a crosshair), but you're limited to a third person view.Read more ›

On the game itself:
If you're an Armored Core fan and liked 4 but found it lacking in some areas you'll heavily enjoy this game. More parts and styles vastly increase the was you can build your mech. The story mode is quite a bit longer, spanning 42 missions divided into 3 paths for the final sets of missions. Choose between maintaining existence and place under the companies, paving a new future for humans in blood and steel or simply watch the world burn and help it along.
The Next vs Next combat has been enhanced (in my opinion) and proves more much satisfying and fast paced. Different regulations affect the gameplay, making it easy or hard. Don't expect enemies to fight the same way they do from ordered matches in the story however, or you'll be in for some PAIN. Arms Forts hold some fun as a sort of "Robot vs Battleship" feel. Though most arms forts prove to be little trouble after finding out their immediate weakness, some AFs will force you to show the game your skill at high speed missile dodges.
Assault armor will be most likely your weapon of last resort should you find your ammo counter at 0. Though some weapons and specs are capable for turning it into a primary, inexhaustible, if not slow to recover, weapon.

This game is more like an expansion to the previous Armored Core rather than a new title in the series. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Special K
Much better than it's predecessor. I am a big fan and played the first game for the playstation and then the first one for playstation 2.Published 19 months ago by Michael S.
Blowing things up is always fun but the story line is too simplistic and the missions seem to be more of the same. controls could have been tweaked a little more.Published 21 months ago by word of reason
Possible one of the greatest all around Armored Core games made, but obviously not for everyone as that is the way all Armored Core games are. Read morePublished on March 1, 2014 by Kolton
I love the customizing of the AC but the problem is A; not being able to get more money easily and B; shear difficulty. I can't beat it.Published on December 22, 2013 by Jullian Bradour
