  1. The bare-bones presentation and limited versus matches leave some definite room for improvement. With a greater focus on co-op and story, the next Armored Core could be the first must-own mech title.
  2. 80
    If you think mech customization and boost-filled battles sound like your cup of tea, Armored Core does deliver on those parts.
  3. Armored Core: For Answer has it hits and misses.
  4. Throughout the campaign, several missions require you to tackle mobile “Arms Forts”. These are tremendously large battle platforms, bristling with heavy artillery, missile racks, and other surprises.

    Лучшая часть в серии. Миядзаки взял и пересобрал всю механику прошлых частей, но все равно оставил то самое ощущение и дух прошлых AC.Лучшая часть в серии.

    For Answer стал еще больше и лучше.

    Armored Core For Answer is a terrible and frustrating mech game.

    The game is stupidly difficult,and with the awful controls,is a recipe for disaster.

    The graphics and mech customisation are decent,but terrible load times hinder the game.

    But you should not play this game,as the gameplay is terrible.

    DO NOT BUY

And even after re-mapping pretty much everything, it still takes some getting used to. Once you get used to your new controls, the game handles much better, and it can become satisfying to pilot your NEXT.

    Combat in this game is fast and satisfying, but I am more of a fan of the speed in older (and newer) Armored Core games. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with this game's speed, I do enjoy it, but I just prefer the slower pace of 3 and V.

    The biggest issue I have with this game is how easy it is. Don't get me wrong, the game can be quite challenging if you refuse to use Laser blades during the campaign... But the second you equip one of those weapons on your AC, the game becomes painfully easy.

    I really love the aesthetics of the game. The game and the NEXT's models do look dated now days, but they are still good looking enough to capture your imagination. The ability to further improve certain aspects of your AC using FCS control points is a great feature, and one that I was honestly sad to lose in V and Verdict Day.

    The boss battles are jaw-dropping, and reminiscent of the ones found in "Shadow of the Colossus"... only replace the character with a giant robot, and the Colossi with even bigger robots. Although some of these battles are very exploitable, and become jokes with the use of laser swords, one cannot deny the feeling of satisfaction that is derived from reducing one of these baddies to dust.

    Although it isn't the best Armored Core game in my personal opinion, it is still definitely worth buying!
