    DAEMON X MACHINA might have an overwrought, needlessly complicated plot, but doesn’t that usually go hand-in-hand with giant robot narratives? Whether or not players are interested in the story, there’s a huge amount of great gameplay on offer with dozens of story and side missions and replayable multiplayer content. From any perspective, DXM offers great value and gameplay, making it one of the top mech games available.

    Daemon X Machina has found its home on PC. The game looks and runs beautifully, and is surprisingly well optimized. This is the best version of a great game, don’t miss out on it.

    With non-stop action and a near limitless amount of customization. Daemon X Machina is a great mech game that now looks better than ever before.

    Overall, this is a fun game. Upgrading your Arsenal and gaining new weapons and equipment to fight enemies feels very rewarding, especially when fighting the bosses. If you can get past the cheesy dialogue and fighting endless waves of common enemies, you will enjoy this game and all it has to offer.

    Daemon X Machina impresses with its focus on big guns, mecha customization, and wild, anime-style action. But its head-scratching story and lifeless environments prevent it from being an instant classic.

    After finishing the story and grinding through free missions, though, you can’t help but start thinking why on earth am I doing this anymore? Even though you can play Daemon X Machina pretty much the way you prefer due to all different weapon combinations, the thinness of the gameplay is unavoidable. However, in years’ long absence of new entry in Armored Core franchise, Daemon X Machina will satisfy the hunger for heated mech action. It’s colorful, fast-paced and sweet while it lasts.
  7. 40
    Daemon X Machina needs some work. Its mechanics are rough, its controls are unwieldy and confusing, and its story is difficult to follow. While it’s mildly entertaining to pilot a giant robot, there are other games that pull off the experience more effectively.

The game is like AC with added depth in some areas and less in others. It's not Armored Core, so don't expect it to be like that. It has it's similarities for sure, but it's a great game in it's own right.

    I am a strict "wait for sale" buyer, and I bought this at full price. I do not regret it.

    For people who are familiar with AC and are put off by the visuals, this is a good mix of some of the earlier AC games and AC4, where the presentation and some of the level design and story is very similar to the older games and the faster pace with less restrictive movement is akin to 4, but maybe not as fast as 4a for what its worth.

    The character creator is awesome, along with the upgrades effecting the look of your character and unlocking particular abilities, which is all very nice aesthetically and lets you create any stereotypical anime character you can imagine, though im not sold on the restrictive nature of the upgrade system where you will have to chose between a useful bonus to your mech or a nifty ability for your character, I think the two should probably have been separated and then fleshed out at the very least.

    This games great and fingers crossed we get more.
