  • 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. Since most of your missions are comprised of sneak and destroy or covert operations you'll find ...

  • 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.

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

  • Excerpt: Robot games, there are so many of them, I’m running out of lines to start my reviews. So here’s a patent robot game starter for 10…“If you’re after heavy metal action you can either listen to Megadeath and jump up and down, or you can play Armoured Core 2.” How’s that?
  • Pros: Fully customisable, nice graphics, lasts ages
  • Cons: very steep learning curve
