Summary: I love Armored Core. Have since I was a kid. It is one of the best mech games made. The only issue with these modern ones are simply that there are at times to much going on at once, which cause huge frame rate drops. Now, this game doesnt drop as bad as Armored Core 4, but it is nearly unplayable at times. It can be beaten though, and multiplayer is epic. Grant it, you will lose since the Asians have this game mastered hands down. They are gods at this game.
Summary: The basic armored core style is here but everything is just so bland. I remember playing this on the ps2 ( Not sure which exact title) but I remember it being a very well polished and good looking game. If we fast forward to now the texture quality just isnt there in for answer. When you first start out your mech is one colour. Yes one colour, no texture or shading to speak of as its just a grey blob.
Summary: If you enjoyed armored core 4, then this will will sate your appetite, seeing as how it is pretty much an expansion. More parts, more enemies, and a big focus on things called arms forts, which appear in most missions and which are essentially moving buildings. There are really only 2-3 really memorable levels including these goliaths, but there's enough here besides the fact to satisfy the mech junkie.
Summary: The entire Armored Core series of games have always centered around large robots, infinitely customizable, and pilotable in multitudes of environments on various genres of missions. AC:For Answer definitely fits this pedigree and looks amazing. However, there are some serious flaws in this game that ruin the fun and remove this from the Must Play list of the casual gamer. 1. Camera: The camera angle is just a LITTLE too close to the player unit to be useful.
Summary: This game is not for the casual gamer, only for hardcore gamers. Yes this game does feature endless customizations and combinations, but there is a very steep learning curve average gamers will find frustrating. The story is a pile of garbage with no sense of inclusion with the player, and although the game is about 26 missions long, each mission only takes about 2 minutes to complete. You are looking at about a 6 hour game even with the side missions.
Excerpt: "Massive mechanical machines with equally massive selections of purchasable, acquirable add ons fly and fight through levels of other machines doing the exact same. Sounds pretty hectic but I assure its often not that exciting. The long going series made by 'FromSoftware' has seen mostly graphical upgrades across the years along with further personal touches and achievements, but does 'For Answer' stand out from the numbered series? Its possibly the ...
