Armored Core 2: Another Age (PS2): Armed to the core
9 June 2008
Summary: Time for some big robots to beat the hell out of each other and everything in their path with the latest instalment of Armorued Core 2 : Another Age. Having played the previous version I was impressed with it on many levels, so I was hopefull that they would pull another one out of the bag here. And in many ways they did, with a whopping 100 new levels and missions to go through you can take your crazy robot on attacts whilst airborne on the ground or underwater.
Summary: This game is pretty much a follow up of armored core 2 where ith has only missions(no arena to bad I loved it). However you start of being able to buy every type of secrete part in armored core 2 (including the KARASARA MK2) and some other patrs that you can fin or earn in the missions. One cool thing is that you can load up old armored core 2 dat to this game so youo can beet all the missions with your favorite ac!
Summary: Ok well when i first got this game I was not into mechs and stuff like that and when I played it I didn't even read the book. I played for about 5 minutes and then gave up but then I read the book and finished a few missions and made a pretty good mech for myself. Then my brother who is the same age as me saw my mech and began to play. We each have four different mechs and try to beat each other in the vs. mode.
Summary: This game would only really appeall to extremely hardcore mech gamers. I enjoyed it for a while but it got old really fast. The buying parts system? There is nothing new about that. A lot of games have that. And not just mech games. Car games, motorcycle games, etc. If you are really into this kind of game, go for it. But if not, try a different ty pe of game.....
Summary: This game is better than the armed core 3 special edition i garentee you'll love it once you get the hang of it it is loaded with tons of missions and you can customizes your own raven right down to the radiator this game should be for everyone and if you are playing vice city you might want to stop by a store and pick up this game.
Summary: Since having played Armored Core 2, I have been looking foward to a sequel. Armored Core Another Age is like an extention of AC2, except that this time you're on Earth. There are lots of new parts to be dicsoverd and of course, new enemy's to destroy. But it's not all 'guns blazing' - you will also find that you need to think about the parts you buy, and to think carefully about what parts you take with you for each mission.
Summary: Having played previous armoured core titles I had high expectations. And for the most part they were met! There are millions of combinations of weapons and 2 player is fun, the controls are the same as before. One bad point is the fact that they dropped the arena mode (where you could compete against other ravens to get money and parts). Also It would be nice to get a 4 player version.
