Armored Core: Nine Breaker

Game Over Online
18 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Can you defeat “Nine Ball?” Are your mech building and piloting skills up to the task of becoming the “Nine Breaker?” Has the title of the game got you convinced that your mech will be standing in a pool hall all day trying to decide what cue and chalk combination would work best? Well, spend a few hours with this installment of the Armored Core series on the PS2, and you may end up wishing they had taken the Cores in a billiard tournament direction rather than this...

  • Excerpt: From Software has just released its newest addition to the long-running Armored Core franchise. Armored Core: Nine Breaker is quite unique to its mech-fighting predecessors, not by what’s been added to it, but rather what’s been taken away. Nine Breaker has been completely ridded of any sort of plot or storyline, leaving the game solely to combat. I personally don’t think you can have a truly good game without a decent story.

  • Excerpt: Armored Core: Nine Breaker is the ninth game in a long series of mech combat titles. The game features an intricate setup where you can customize every single aspect of your giant robotic death machine. In this business, any game that can survive through nine sequels has probably got to be considered a success even if it does not generate the huge sales numbers of some of the mega titles.

  • Conclusion: Game sound is also thoroughly decent, and the throbbing musical ambience of Nine Breaker will likely push the pulse rate of those gamers immersed in the heat of battle. As with the visual performance of AC weaponry, its accompanying aural performance is equal to the task when it comes to convincingly drawing in players and invoking a willing sense of disbelief in the general ‘huge robots blasting seven bells out of one another with incomprehensibly large guns and...
  • Pros: Offers masses of mech customisation, A.I. is impressively unpredictable, Battles are hard hitting and well paced, Reduced price point
  • Cons: Obviously aimed at just the dedicated Armored Core fans, Same old fiddly controls, overly complicated HUD, Battle arena and training exercises amount to not enough content, Lack of Network multiplayer is scandalous and kills longevity

  • Excerpt: Beaucoup d'entre vous doivent se rappeler que, dans leur plus tendre enfance, leur rêve ultime était de piloter ces gigantesques robots qui peuplaient la télévision, et par extension leur imagination. Arborant les noms poétiques de Goldorak, Mazinger, Gundam, voire Robotech, ces séries ou ces engins inspirèrent moult vocations bien entendu impossibles à réaliser. Imaginez-vous demander à un conseiller d'orientation que vous désirez être un pilote de mecha.

  • Excerpt: Еще год назад грозные боевые машины купались в лучах уходящей славы. Armored Core: Nexus новизной не блистала, но собрать на одном диске все лучшее, когда-либо предложенное From Software, – уже заслуга немалая. Что помешало сделать рывок вперед, взять новую вершину? Отсутствие денег, людей? Да, денег теперь чуть прибавится. Выпуск Armored Core: Nine Breaker – беспроигрышный ход.
