    Last Raven is the seventh and last Armmored Core title for the PS2, and it's definitely the best of the bunch. [July 2006, p.78]
  2. Last Raven is your last chance to experience the world of Armored Core on the PS2. Even if the MSRP weren't $29.99, you'd have a ridiculously hard time trying to find a more complete mobile suit package. The gameplay (battles), pre-gameplay (customization), flashy graphics, and adrenaline-filled soundtrack are some of the best this series has had to offer.
  3. Really, this is just more of the same from Agetec – they found a formula that works and they stuck with it. It’s still fun, and there are a few minor improvements here and there, but it’s tough to shake a sense of having seen and done it all before.

    Superb title. If your a true AC fan than you will love this game. The controls actually take skill to use (imagine that) but once you get Superb title. If your a true AC fan than you will love this game. The controls actually take skill to use (imagine that) but once you get used to it, its one of the best games ever. Armored Core is hands down the best mech game out there. Ive been playing since Armored Core: Project Phantasm. If you want a good mech game than you have come to the right place. Awesome combat with alot of deep customization make this game worth the money. Buy it now! Full Review »
