    PS3 - If you like giant mech robots, flying all over the place while blowing things up, with over 40 different kinds of weapons, this is the game for you. Graphics are stunning, there are 42 missions and parts to unlock for doing hard missions + arena challenges, many different parts to build your mech, and a wide area to do combat in. I gave it a 9/10 because there weren't enough weapons + parts in my opinion, but that is the only reason. Expand

    This game has evolved intensely since the original PS1 days. Today the maps, graphics and physics engines, weaponry, story, voice acting, special commands (boosts in flying etc) and everything else are so far advanced in a one-of-a-kind sort of gameplay. It's unlike any other game on the market. As far as I know there are no competitors for the Armored Core series, and this latest addition to the series is really, really good. Collapse

    If you think mech customization and boost-filled battles sound like your cup of tea, Armored Core does deliver on those parts.
  2. What's so strange about For Answer is its trading of extensive customization for actual gameplay. Sure, you can build the ultimate mech, customizing it to your heart's content, yet when you actually play the game, you realize its shortcomings.

    The game does provide a few improvements, bringing revised flight controls and new cooperative mission modes, but For Answer lacks what a great series needs in order to stay relevant: progress.
