  • Summary: In the distant future, massive urban development and pollution have critically damaged the planet. There is widespread fear that the end of the world is approaching. The League corporations, a military superpower, control the planet's infrastructure and have forced most of the world's population to live in huge aerial communities, called Cradles, to avoid the contamination. The ORCA, a rebel resistance still residing on the surface of the polluted planet, have amassed a formidable arsenal and are mobilizing to attack The League's bases to put an end to their iron grip on the planet. As a mercenary armed with cutting-edge military robot technology, choose your side and defeat the other factions by harnessing the power of the deadliest and most gigantic weapons ever created by mankind.

  1. Not an unexpected sequel but still a very good game.
  2. Armored Core: For Answer has it hits and misses.
  3. The latest Armored Core makes up for the series' lack of progress by simply being fun to play.
  4. Basically, play it for the multiplayer, or don’t play it at all. [Dec 2008, p.110]
  5. Armored Core: For Answers isn’t able to persuade in any aspect. The story isn’t irrelevant and the missions are boring and too difficult to be fun. Graphics also suck.
  6. In summary, Armored Core: For Answer is a bland game that only exhibits brief periods of satisfaction, namely blowing things up, amidst its numerous flaws. For Answer has some particularly testy controls, poor mission structure, aggravating battles, and a complete lack of flair in its levels.

    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

    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 Expand
