    Armored Core 4 does painfully little to stray away from previous entries, and it just might be its greatest drawback. 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.

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. Expand

  1. 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.

    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.
  3. 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.
