  1. With tons of different mech-building options and a healthy two-player mode, fans of the genre will find themselves having a wonderful time for quite awhile.
  2. For the first time, a mech-style game makes you feel like you're actually inhabiting the suit, not controlling it from afar.

    A great sequel...It is, however, hard going and less proficient gamers may find it too difficult and a chore to get through, even on the normal setting.
  4. The combination of pretty new graphics, the same old music and the same old control is something of a spade.
  5. If Armored Core 2 had managed to add more of "Blaze's" carnage, we would be taking about a classic.
  6. The mechs are slow and ponderous, the missions linear, and the controls complicated.
  7. With the Dual Shock 2 available in every PS2 box, why do we still not have analog control here? Other than that the game plays as it always has, acceptable.
  8. Casual gamers will get into this game for about an hour before being overwhelmed by the choices. Experts of the previous games will love it, even with the odd control scheme.

    Обожаю все части этой серии. Они хоть и однообразные, но очень сильно затягивают геймплеем, механикой и постройкой мехов.Обожаю все части этой серии. Они хоть и однообразные, но очень сильно затягивают геймплеем, механикой и постройкой мехов.

    I was not a fan at all of the first game and I reluctantly picked this one up but I have to say it was a pleasant surprise.

The game was great and offered me enough fun to not regret spending the money I did on it. Full Review »
