  • 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 i...
  • 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.

  • 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.

A marvellous, mind-blowing menagerie of mechanised mayhem. But grey.

  • Excerpt: For those who didn't know this title started out life on the old Playstation format around roughly the same principles only the action took place on earth. Do missions, get money and buy new additions to your armory.
  • Pros: Lots of equipment, Robot fully customisable, Good Story
  • Cons: Dated, Poor Graphics, Dodgy Controls
