Summary: It's a pretty good game overall but it doesn't compare to ACE 3, I have to say that I'm satisfied with my purchase and I would recommend this to anyone who likes mechas. My main problem was the control scheme, it isn't as fluid as it was on ACE 3 and it can be a little difficult to get used to...
Great game, although...knowing some Japanese would help

Summary: its kind of hard to know what you're doing throughout the game without reading a translation, otherwise you're just floating around hacking and slashing robots for hours on end. Great game once you get the hang of it though.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Banpresto and it's crossover series. ACE R is a graphical improvement in the series and is a lot of fun but it feels like a step backwards. The fast and furious mecha action that made ACE 2 and 3 so memorable in my eyes can't be found here.
Summary: I've been a fan of the ACE for a long while now and this new installement of the game brings new life to the series. Some of the controls are new & need some getting used to, but once mastered quite fun.
Summary: It seems like most of the RTSes which are created around multyplayer have a mission: to increase you mouse dexterity as seen in the crazy Star Craft 300+ APM player's videos. Well news flash, I am lazy.
Summary: The RTS genre had become pretty much saturated for some time now. The addition of more on-screen units and richer environments (with the consequent increase in hardware requirements) did little to invigorate it.
