    The presentation is weak, the gameplay flawed, and the reliance on insanely in-depth customization will likely end up annoying most gamers.

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 »
