  • 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.

  • Summary: Mediocre in a lot of areas. A lot of wasted potential here, but enough things are done right to make it an acceptable game.
  • Pros: Fun, insanely deep mech customization, fun.
  • Cons: Mediocre vs mode, slowdown, cheesy graphics.

  • Summary: So many options that mechs will be 100% original and you can be sure no other gamer is using the exact same setup. Color options are nearly infinite.
  • Pros: Mech fan's dream, literally thousands of customizing options.
  • Cons: Basically a remake of old Armored Core games, not enough new stuff.

A typical first gen game that is amusing, but nothing spectacular

  • Summary: Very good graphics, relatively good controls, but sports only a roughly linear storyline coupled with ho-hum sound and music. This game warrants a rental, but not a keeper.
  • Pros: Good graphics, decent gameplay, fun to customize your mech
  • Cons: Rather unpolished overall, easy to finish for an experienced gamer

  • Excerpt: I played the original armored core on te PS a few years before and despite the graphics being a bit rudimentary it was the only game I have played since which really got me interested in the mech game genre. The story in Armored Core 2 has changed from the original. You are no longer a mechanics in Ravens nest in the subteranian wars between corporations using mercenaries, namely ravens nest. This game was developed by 'software' and released in March 2001.

Grey corridor central

  • Excerpt: Overview Armored Core 2 is a mech-combat game from a long-running series that started on the playstation. This the first of the series to appear on the Playstation 2. They're still pumping them out to this day making tiny, incremental improvements to justify each new release, of which there have been countless millions. (At least.) But I get the impression they got the formula down in this one. Story There isn't one really. Well there is, but its rubbish.
  • Pros: Some times you'll be outside, away from the scourge of the grey corridor .
  • Cons: You usually won't .
