The old adage of don't-fix-if-it's-not-broke has continued here for Armored Core 2.

  • 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 ...

  • Summary: Great game play. Missions hard and graphics superb. Only problems i had with it was the turning speed was too slow. by the time u did a 360 degree turn , ud be dead. another thing is u have to pay for damages and ammo u waste in a mission. I tend to enjoy far combat and machine guns.

  • Summary: I was unimpressd with most aspects of AC2. The story is uninteresting, the controls are very rough, and the whole targeting sceme needs work. The one positive thing I can say is that the graphics are spectacular, watch the opening CS and you'll see what I mean.

  • Summary: I expected more than just flashy graphics from the next generation of this sereis of which I'm a huge fan. Instead of making the missions more suited to a mech they've actually made them more difficult and taken away any chance of successful preparation and you almost always run out of ammo.

Not Very Good, Obviously rushed out the door.

  • Summary: I was very disapointed in this game, especially having liked the original so much. This is an extremely buggy bit of coding. I have experienced, sounds locking up in the system, like a explosion during a battle and never clearing out and just keeps repeating -- even after going back to the menu...

  • 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: 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
