    Armored Core is an awesome game. Its not hard in any respect. The fact that it can be difficult to master for some people is that these may be brand new players, not used to the complexity of the game. Agetec has been making armored core more realistic in every aspect, and they also make every follow-up harder than the last.

    Bad ass game, bad ass series. Don't see how its too complicated even for a newbie because I just picked it up. Never played the earlier versions until I bought it. Now I own all of the PS2 versions! Its not the game or the series' fault if you're a sub-par gamer.

    Probably the best of the lot, Armored Core: Last Raven proves itself the ultimate mech game ever to hit the PS2.

    Although it is a long and difficult game, there is a lot has to offer. The customization is very detailed making it possible to get exacty what your looking for, for the task at hand.It might be hard to channel all the information into a fun game but once you get the hang of it, it'll be fun.

    How can people find this game so hard to play, that's just ridiculous. How can 1UP expect people to take their reviews seriously if they can't grasp the bare basics of this great game?

    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 Superb title. If your a true AC fan than you will love this game.

    The Armored Core developers are celebrating the series' 10th birthday by giving you the same mech game they've pumped out since the beginning. [Jun 2006, p.92]

    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]

    Fans will be happy to see some of the battle and garage tweaks that make positive changes in the gameplay, but the uninteresting missions will dampen any excitement. Sadly, those want to check this out for the first time are getting the tiny end of the stick. Too much time will be spent researching and banging your head against the wall with a ridiculous amount of trial and error for a treat that's not nearly worth the effort.
