  1. A brilliant game. It combines the classic sci-fi cliché of giant robot battles with the obsessive tinkering of real world mechanics. Anyone who enjoys computers, cars, or other machinery will get a kick out of the customization aspect (from body parts to paint jobs) and mecha enthusiasts, will, well... love blowing the crap out of everything.
  2. It looks nicer, it plays faster, and with its lower barrier to entry, Armored Core 4 should appeal to more than just the series' faithful gearheads.
  3. Despite some boring missions, the customization and online fights were great fun, to say the least.

    With a revamped mission structure, online play, and brand new control scheme Armored Core 4 is a must own for fans of the series like myself. While there are a few glaring problems the core experience is still enjoyable.
  5. The game remains true to the series in catering more toward the hardcore element despite good attempts at making the game accessible; Armored Core 4 easily offers up the hottest mech-on-mech action yet in this next generation.

Once again you pilot a mech of sorts and take along on missions that come in a variety of ways to complete. The scale is improved this time around, and the graphics are pretty and reflections are gorgeous to look at. With a bare bones story to move missions along, you'll be doing pretty much the same thing the whole game. I like that if it presented more features, but sadly there is only a standard multiplayer. Customization is better here, but that doesn't say much to this game. Playing the previous entries will warrant a familiar experience which makes this game look unoriginal at best. Full Review »
