    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 latestThis game has evolved intensely since the original PS1 days.

    this is the kind of game i've been waiting for. a classic,
    technically, and a modern masterpiece. the movie sequences have been created with what looks to me to be some of the most impressive graphics engine ever. the actions and the plot are two important things for me in several ways and this game nails both in extremely well done ways. i am more than content with this game. ...stoked!

    Do not miss this game. Most especially if the Armored Core series is one in which you are familiar with. The best of the best, this game offers all the large battles, a great story, co-op mode, custom mech creation, fabulous online play, this one has it ALL. Though this series is fairly popular, it doesn

    I only played the first two missions and decided this game is not for me. I would not say what I came across was bad I just found it uninteresting. The game starts you off with a basic mech and you take on missions and destroy something for in game currency to buy and swap parts and customize your mech rinse and repeat i guess.

There is a story to make it somewhat more interesting but for me this was not very exciting at all. The action seemed like it could have became faced paced and good but I thought the control schemes were mapped well but performed a little non responsively. What I really thought was poor was the camera while moving from horizontal to vertical and since the game revolves around movement I stopped very quickly and put the game down and moved on to something else.

    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 weaponsPS3 - 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.

    Worth playing. When you get used to the controls, you have one of the most chaotic games out there. Story was, for the most part, good. I did however have a lot of aggravating levels. The story, in my opinion, is not as good as silent line, my favorite game in the series. Other than that, this game is something everyone should at least rent

    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.
