Summary: Not going to lie, but when this was first announced I didn't even want to bother with it. I just thought is wasnt going to be that good compared to ACV, but after a while I decided to pick it up and I must say it is a must get for fans of the series. It has deep customization and the gameplay is better imo than in ACV. The graphics arent the best, but when you get into this game you'll soon forget about them. The online is a lot better too.
Summary: This game could have had another label and would have been fine. It sort of reminds me of Chrome Hounds with its online war aspects, but leaves a lot to be desired in base gameplay. Most of the fights are slow, much slower than previous AC games and after surpassing the steep learning curve you will have to fight veteran players in matchmaking, as only high ranking teams seem to be what's left of the community.
Summary: As much as i love AC, the series seems to just go down hill with every new release. The problem is the fact that they rely heavily on the multiplayer as the main selling point of the game, and that's where the big issue is.First off to even be able to play single player and online you have to join an online clan, and they're usually inactive unless you go solo clan.
Great for AC/Mecha Fans, not sure about the other audiences.

Summary: I'll be upfront right now, this is NOT for the casual mecha players, or for those not interested in the series. Armored Core usually if not always is made to those who are familiar to the series, or those with great reflexes. And as stated, buying an expansion at full price is I suppose something to gripe about, but keep in mind that the games are a full year apart, and this is nothing new for the guys behind AC. So don't let that push you away, since..
Summary: As a fan from the PS ages, I loved the Armored Core series. Unfortunately, Armored Core V was a huge disappointment for me. So when Armored Core Verdict Day (ACVD) was announced, hope and fear stirred within my soul. I've seen many reviews praising ACVD to be a top-notch game, but I suspect that's only true because they're comparing it to the predecessor. As a game itself, it's nothing to go crazy about. Pros: ●Online matching has been redone and is better than before.
