    AC4 feels like a house that's been added onto so often that it's a maze of twisting passages, oddly shaped rooms, and doors that go nowhere. There may be something worthwhile hidden within, but it's not worth the effort to find it. Time to tear it all down and start over.
  2. The controls are great once you get them customized properly*fire buttons on L1 and R1), with nimble movement and crazy bursts of speed seldom seen outside of anime, but this dexterity is wasted on short missions, bare-bones multiplayer, and the same ol' gameplay AC has been recycling for years.

    This is hands-down the best Armored Core game to date, including V and For Answer. This is a rich detailed futuristic simulator that is fun even for the western audience. From Software did a great job developing this game. Full Review »

    The Armored core franchise has been going up hill since Armored Core 2. Once again From Software and Sega have outdone themselves offering more control, variety, and action. The learning curve of the game really shows how far you can push their revamped system. Also, this game has plenty of replay value. whether you like to play simulated missions or head to head with friends, this is a great game for anyone. Also it is one of the first well done ps3 games currently out. Full Review »
