Summary: OK, so I install the game and fire it up. Start with a guy on foot, no popup messages telling me what to do. I move the stick and viola! my guy moves! I follow the only AI friendly I see. He jumps to a far above ledge. What do I do? No message. So, I try and try and a minute later I make it up the ledge with a Batm an-style lasso. Meanwhile, there is this conspicuous countdown from 1000 going on.... hmmm.
Summary: Let me start by saying I always buy or wait till a game is $20 or less before buying and since reading all the reviews and the price at 15 I gave it a try. The story shows promise and the background is bright so looks good. The controls are difficult, the bosses are too numerous, becomes very repitious, just too difficult even on easy level. Not too much fun.
Summary: This game is a pain in the butt, can't believe how difficult it is to get started, and once you are it is still difficult to stay with....not compelling to put back in the machine. Spend your money elsewhere...
Summary: This game is truely atrocious. There are many good things about this game (such as getting to control mechs and even wield mech weapons when on foot) but the bad parts really are really bad. The #1 complaint I have about this game is simply the constant "knock-downs". Pretty much any attack landed on your character will knock you down such that you cannot do anything until you get back up.
Summary: This Game Is Ok I Played It For A While I Wish The Character Could Run A Bit Faster The Action and Story Could Be More Explosive as Well. When Playing Online With Your Friends The Game Will Produce More Fun. However, The Slow Movement Of The Characters Takes A Toll On The Overall Action.
Conclusion: i traded in this game a while back as a result of my distaste for this game. i never liked the idea of if you dont kill something every two seconds and steal its body heat, you'l freeze to death. the gameplay was different from others of its kind and it took soem getting used to, once that was mastered it turned out to be an ok game and graphics also helped this but in a snowy enviroment and its kinda hard 2 see.. they could have easily covered up graphic flaws.
Conclusion: I bought this game for Â£20 second-hand not so long ago, and found it almost a complete waste of my money. Storyline is the most interesting aspect of the game, and trust me when I say that everything else is dire. I found the game play mechanics very poor; it seems that the producers did not know what to sell this game as - a shooter or a different take on Armoured Core. It fails at both. Enemies show little to no AI, hardly ever putting up a fight.
