  • Summary: Another age takes place five years after Leos Klain's coup on Mars. The Earth Government is struggling with the powerful Corporations for control of the planet - and they desperately need the help from the Ravens. Players take the role of these Ravens - mercenaries who fight for the highest bidders. The game features 100 new missions, a split-screen vs. mode, and 10 billion possible parts combinations. Expand

  1. If you've seen one Armored Core title, you've seen them all. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. This is easily the best of the bunch.
  2. You still can't find a more engrossing, bot-builder. The level of customization has yet to be matched, making AC2:AA one of the most replayable games in your library.
  3. So what’s not to like? Really nothing, but neither is there really anything that stunned me. This is good, solid, ‘Mech gaming, yet nothing more.

    It is in essence the same game, just with new core parts and a massive selection of new missions.
  5. Only slightly different, Another Age fails in the fact that it is nearly a cookie-cutter copy of the original game. If the original was excellent to begin with, why not play it again?

    Don’t enter Another Age expecting a full-fledged sequel to Agetec’s giant-robot fighting franchise. This AC2 expansion pack adds about 100 missions and new multiplayer options…but not a whole lot more.
  7. Another age is for Core heads only, and even some of them will be disappointed with more of the same. [Oct 2001, p.145]

    I don't rate games by how much they improve from the prequel. If you haven't bought this game yet, it's a MUST have for your PS2 library. Expand

    I haven't played this game yet and i usually don't rate them until I do, but based on how much I liked "Armored Core 2" and all the screenshots I've seen it should be an extremely good game. Expand

    Very, very good RPG. One of the very few games in sony that can compare to Final Fantasy, but of course Final Fantasy will always be the best. But this is still an excellent mech game. Expand
