  • Conclusion: The story is not that great but AC2 has a variety of game modes and it is a good solid game for your collection, especially if you're into this type of game but for those who aren't into mecha games, you need to look elsewhere.
  • Pros: If you have never played any games from the armored core series, you are in for a treat but if you have played other mecha games, get prepared to get used to some of the nagging mechanics that come with controlling your robot or mech. AC2 is one of the 1st games that came out for the PS2. Being in the batch of the first generation of PS2 games, the graphics are very impressive and the art direction is very vibrant but not entirely original. AC2 does best what AC has d...
  • Cons: While utilizing the Overboost looks really fun, your'll find yourself precharging before Overboost for 10 minutes before you get into the uncontrollable stops as you play through the rest of the game. Since most of your missions are comprised of sneak and destroy or covert operations you'll find yourself using this ability less and less.

  • Summary: I can't really recommend it, but it was very close to being a good game. With more players and maybe some tighter controls, this could be good.
  • Pros: Decent story line, in-depth customization
  • Cons: sub-par graphics and sound, little replay value, bad multiplayer.

A mecha version of Gran Turismo.

  • Conclusion: If you feel like blowing up stuff, have a challenge when fighting other ACs, and have time on your hands, Armored Core 2 is just for you.
  • Pros: What's great about this is that you can customize your AC with hundreds of parts. There are 50 missions altogether, and 54 AC pilots you can challenge.
  • Cons: Paying for ammo and repairs in almost all missions. No damage effects, and you have one way to melee attack.
