    Great New Control That really helps in aerial combat a pity the game is kinda short wish it were longer and I suggest making a main Character next Time with improved story line . Anyway, this game is Great.

    Armored Core Nexus is unfairly criticized by the same things some critics praised Dark Souls for (a game that is also from the same developer). Steep learning curve and difficult battles are nothing compared to the feeling of satisfaction of building and mastering your own mech.

    One of the finest mecha games ever made...The constant micro-management of you AC's mutually opposed abilities coupled with an increased efficiency at neutralising enemies is a cerebral, immersive and vibrantly unique gaming experience, which lifts the game above its past incarnations. [June 2004, p.116]
  2. Competent but uninspired, Armored Core Nexus continues to cater to a dedicated following of PS2 owners that milk its customization features for all they’re worth.

    It has more of the same clunky controls and general lack of fun for which the series is known. [Oct 2004, p.92]
