Summary: A couple of months ago I got the itch to play a mech game. I wanted to hop into a mech, loaded for bear and go blow stuff up. I thought about Mechwarrior 4 and Steel Battalion. Of course I don't have a gaming PC or an original Xbox, so those were out of the question.
Summary: I have been following the Armored Core series since the first game came out on the Playstation. I through at least a hundred or so hours into the game and enjoyed it. After the first installment, only Nexus and Armored Core 3 were playable to me, until 5 came out.
Summary: Pros: simple controls gratifying explosions innovative co-op and online play replay ability almost infinite outstanding graphics and mech design cons: Always online hiring a mercenary can be tedious new parts are hard to find when they become available The newest installment of the armored core...
Summary: I would only recommend this if you're planning to play the game with your friends :p ...the Co-Op is pretty neat. No interference when communicating and all that. Do not get it if you're going solo. It tends to become a chore ;o
Summary: This most recent installment in the series does two major things in my opinion. it calls back to many stylistic points of the old, pre-AC4 series, yet takes a lot of bold risks in new areas and design ideas. some of them good, some of them bad, but none of them truly ruining the fun.
Summary: This game short and simple is for multiplayer. Yep. Usually there are branching path ways in story and usually you can expect 25+ mission, so what does V have, a absolute abysmal 10 story missions. Also the chatter is so incoherent.
Armored core 5 review; from someone who never played the series.

Summary: I've been playing giant robot games in various forms for years. I cut my teeth on battletech (and I still have the Phoenix Hawk LAM). First of all, for you guys that jumped in for an hour and gave up on it, I don't really blame you.
