Armored Core

This game has been out for a long while. Over the years, it has reveived low grades in the media as in the magazines and game owners alike. However, it has one a small group of fans that are loyal as they are scarse. I am one of these few. I love the game since I first played it six years ago. I know I was young but ever since the first time I switched on and picked up the controller I've become another fan boy. I love the game for several reasons, mainly because of; Concept, Controls, graphics, sound and design.

Foremost, I love the concept. I am a heavy mecha fan as I love all of the Gundam series and I enjoy playing mecha games. So Armored Core gives me a chance to quinch my thirst for giant bot action.

Next, controls. Over the years I've been use to the controls, which are so simple even a second grader mastered them. Its a rather fun game. The graphics are too great. With digitally mastered quailty videos and cut scenes the game is one of the best. The soundtrack is quite enjoyable with a light array of ambiant techno and dance music. Finnally the design. I love the designing of the game and its looks. Overall it's my favorite game of all time. So has anyone else played the game? Or even heard about it?

I'm going to have to disagree on most of the points.

The highlights of this game by FAR are all in the customization.

The actual gameplay is very sluggish. If you want an example of a mech game with tight, tight controls and lightning-fast gameplay, go try Zone of the Enders 2.

The actual game engine for the PS2 is already several years old. Nothing's really been added to it at all, so I can't even say the graphics are decent.

With that said, Armored Core 4 looks badass.

I played (or rather, tried to play) the original ones on the Playstation (not PS2, sue me).

I rather call it the MechWarrior (having played 2, 3, 4) of PS <.< .

I just like to say that I'm also an Armored Core fan with the gritty parts design and its massive costumization. However, I can pretty much guess why this game was underrated because of its crappy story, and crappy acting (in my opinion).

However, with Armored Core 4 looking like "bad-ass", the game has my full expectation. Not only will it have a new kind of gameplay, while still sticking to its ten-year-old root, but with the graphics looking very impressive and with Sega as the publishing company, I'm buying this game along with PS3.

I haven't played the series in a while. Can't member the last one I played. But w/e I'm getting the 360 version when it comes out in Spring. I know I will get ass owned all over Live. Doesn't matter though, I'm still going to be talking mess like I'm some kind of Kira Yamato God :P


However I wish that players who bought either the PS3 or 360 versions could play each other in online multiplayer. That would be awesome. But yea, I'm sure that will never happen

The first games of each of my PS' were all AC...AC1, AC2 and now AC4.

Sorry Papaya, but AC on the ps2 has continued to change with each version, starting with OB, exceed orbits, inside parts, extension parts, heat damage, weapon dropping, left hand guns, and weight tuning. It's bascially like GT for mecha, whereas ZOE is like Outrun (which is still hella good and speedy). I actually wish AC was a little more flighty because ur right that AC can be sluggish sometimes, especially in open arenas where basically the buffest AC wins...luckily some of the new movies show it to be a teeny bit more aerial.

Well I probably have no right saying this cause I really only played one of the AC for the ps2 (can't remember which one). I too found it a little slow and sluggish to play. So I just thought the rest of the ACs were the same. Although I always liked the customization part. Makes me feel like an actual owner of a mech. ZOE 1 and 2 are good and fast but it would be better if there was a customization part to it too. Of course I love to build me some mech.

well . . . AC action is sluggish because it simulates how a real giant robot would do in real world, you know . . .

for all the weight that the robots have, they tend to be slower, and when they land from a jump, they will be "stuned" from the weight that gravity does on them.

so, you must have a strategy to win, just attacking won't do it.

haven't you guys used the "stun" from a jump to hit a grenade or a laser cannon on your foes?

AC simulates a "real combat" between mechas.

True. This reflects reality!
