  • 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 .

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. In Armored Core 2 however instead of staying on earth you have been sent to Mars as a Raven (Bounty Hunter) and are hired by different companies to dent massive co-operations by destroying things belonging to them.
  • Pros: Lots of equipment, Robot fully customisable, Good Story
  • Cons: Dated, Poor Graphics, Dodgy Controls

  • Excerpt: Armored Core 2, released earlier this year, involves piloting a robot and taking on missions, with the aim of gaining cash, in order to upgrade your robot. You have a variety of different firearms in which to complete your missions, which are generally relatively difficult to complete, in relation to other, similar titles. Once you have completed the missions, you gain cash, which enables you to purchase better parts for your machine.
  • Pros: Fantastic Graphics
  • Cons: Hard to control at first

Hard to the Core

  • 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? Armoured Core 2 is, of course, the sequel to the best selling Playstation robot battle game that mixes beat-em-up style combat with strategic planning and some really heavy artillery.
  • Pros: Fully customisable, nice graphics, lasts ages
  • Cons: very steep learning curve

  • Excerpt: ARMOURED CORE 2 is a similar game for tipology to GUNGRIFFIN BLAZE, even if the much most difficult one and from the more problematic controls. Even if at the beginning the two you play can seem much similar, playing to us notices that there are many substantial differences. ARMOURED CORE 2 is a shoot'em up that it needs of much grey matter for being understood to bottom.

  • Excerpt: At last! A PS2 game that both looks good and plays well, a game with variety that requires some degree of thought. AC2 is set on a futuristic Mars ruled by mega-corporations who are at war with each other and with Earth Gov. You are a Raven, a mercenary who sells the services of your AC to the highest bidder. An AC? What's that? It's an "Armoured Core". Imagine a heavily armoured robot bristling with weaponry.
