Summary: This game is a really good game but straided to far from the original games. With new option and add ons, this makes the armored core genoration take a huge leap in experimentation. With snipers and bladers, fast lightwieght or brawn heavy weight. Its your mech, make how you want.
Fun game with a funky difficulty curve. Let me save you some trouble.

Summary: The action is fast. Combat is fun. A LOT of the game is trial and error, but once you figure out the game's tricks, you can have loads of fun. Pay attention to your mission objective, only focus on that. Listen to ALL of the mission briefings at least once. Don't focus on destroying every enemy in the level. That's a great way to run out of ammo, get killed, or lower your mission rank. Plus, the game just becomes tedious and boring if you do that.
Summary: The world experienced a period of rapid population growth, which put a strain on global food and energy supplies. As populations increased, so did the gap between the wealthy and the poor, and so did the unrest within the population at large. Eventually, violence began to erupt and the governments quickly lost control of their populations as their cities were consumed by terrorism and anarchy.
Armored Core 4 is it better than previous Armored Cores

Summary: The short answer is yes! Now you may ask what is my reasoning that brings me to this conclusion? Obviously much like you would expect the graphics are vastly improved! But the best part for me was the fact that you can control your AC with both joysticks instead of just with the one and the shoulder buttons. I think that is a long over due upgrade to the series! Game play is pretty much the same so if you are a fan of the series you won't be disappointed in that regard.
