    An exhilarating first-person mech shooter, it has its share of shortcomings, but in some respects leaves Core's also excellent title in the dust.

    "Armored Core 2" may have depth to burn, but as far as actual gameplay goes, Gun Griffon is king.
  3. GGB does not have much in the way of storyline -- a continuation of the previous Gungriffon games' post-apocalyptic military scenario -- or extras, but it doesn't need those things. It is extremely fast and fun and easy to play, and it is a solid title worthy of buying.
  4. This has got to be one of the nippiest first-person shooters we have ever played. It just reacts so well that you can''t fail to feel that you''re performing a useful role in the battle and are not just there to stomp around while looking fierce.

    The game is quick, the music is fast and there is enough strategy planning and intelligent AI to keep you on your toes. And hey, the machines look great!
  6. A fun, strategic game that doesn't ram reality down your throat.
  7. Antagonist
    76
    If you're not into giant robots blastin' the crap out of things, skip it.
  8. The action never lets up and while there's no real depth or strategy, it's a damn good blast that really gets the adrenaline pumping.

    A hugely underrated game. Only downside is the often poor English translation, but it's still understandable. Looking at modern games likeA hugely underrated game. Only downside is the often poor English translation, but it's still understandable. Looking at modern games like Titanfall and Hawken, it becomes clear how much of their lineage and inspiration they owe to this game, in the genre of FPS mech battles. It's aged far better than the game it was accused of ripping off, Armored Core. Definitely worth picking up, and if you can't find it, PCSX2 emulation works wonderfully. Full Review »
