I've seen the Armored Core series before and heard bad things about Armored Core 4, but I wanted to give Armored Core 4A a try anyway since it sounded like they made your mechs more configurable and the gameplay more fun. I can't compare to the previous ones since I haven't seen them, but my hunch is they succeeded.

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.

Let me say that I have been a long time fan of the Armored Core. This game is NOT for everyone. It has a very steep learning curve, due to the detail of customization for creating your mech (or Next as they are called in this game). But outside of that, this is a really fun game. It has 42 campaign missions and 30 1 on 1 Next battles. The online play is not to be taken lightly, as this is where many people who are very familiar with the game get most of their fun. So online is very competitive. Many of the campaign missions feature huge mobile enemy bases called Arms Forts which you have to battle in a medley of interesting ways, which all lead to some very fun, fast-paced, action packed battles. I highly recommend this game for anyone who is a fan of hardcore action shooters. Come on, see if you can keep up with us!

I've played several of the previous AC games, and I gotta tell you that this one is fine tuned to the T. If you liked any of the previous titles at all, this will blow your mind. If you haven't played any of the previous titles, this one can also be enjoyed by itself. Though AC vets will find some really god nuggets of reference from past titles. But please, don't let it stop you if you haven't played the others...this one is great all by itself, and though huge mech fights may seem complex on the surface it is actually an easy game to get the hang of control-wise.

I thank Amazon for making this game be available for purchase. Usually this series is incredibly hard to find in my area, but thanks to the site I was able to procure it :D.

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.

Armored core has always been a franchise I enjoyed playing since it's early days on the psx or ps1. When it originally came to the xbox 360 something was missing, it did not feel like armored core. The came Armored core for answer another great game. There was a Armored core V that came out recently but unfortunately that also did not feel like armored core.
