Armored Core 4 (PlayStation 3)

 

Mech games come in two varieties. You've got the West's MechWarrior tradition, characterized by hulking, barbaric monstrosities, and the East's Gundam or Macross tradition, characterized by lithe and agile bots. With the release of Chromehounds last...

It seems like only yesterday when From Software dropped their long-running franchise on the gaming community. Now here we sit six years and seven games later with the fourth official...

Cooling System Eliminated ; Revamped Mission Structure ; Online Play

Confusing Assembly Menu ; Short Missions ; Minor Graphical Hiccups

When it comes to Mech games, few franchises are as recognizable as the Armored Core series. With solid controls, fast-paced action, and a slew of different customization options that allow you to build your walking weapon of mass destruction from the...

If you're a fan of Japanese mech games, you may be able to squeeze a little bit of fun out of Armored Core 4. But if you aren't a particularly big fan of the genre, don't expect to have much fun with this game. With a boring and hard to follow story...

I'm starting to wonder just how many Armored Core fans there still are out there. I've never met one, but they must exist, because From Software keeps churning these games out. I respect that what this series does is pander to an undoubtedly niche...

Very nice graphics ; If nothing else, playing online is a good way to show off your mech

Same old boring mech combat ; Mech customization menus could stand to be more efficient

Unless you’re a rabid series fan (do they still exist?) who will appreciate a graphical upgrade and a few gameplay tweaks, you’ll find this to be “just another Armored Core game”.

Casual fans need not apply.

Though so much of manga and anime consists of mecha, for as long as I can remember – well, for as long as I've been reading and watching it anyway – I've tried to avoid giant robots with every fiber of my being. Despite that, I have to admit that I was...

You're piloting a giant robot ; Tons of customization options ; Online and offline multiplayer

Short missions, from 1-5 minutes ; Sparse graphics and ho-hum sound ; Hardly a “next generation” effort

Armored Core 4 stands as the first next-gen effort for the aging series, and ultimately it is a failed one. At first, the game seemed like it was going to attempt something visually commendable, but somewhere between deciding what they wanted to do and...

From Software's Armored Core 4 attempts to update the series for next generation consoles while grasping for a wider audience than they have enjoyed in the past. For the most part, the Armored Core franchise was for series fanatics only. The myriad...

When you first fire up Armored Core 4, you’ll be treated to a great looking movie showing the mechs in action. The intro teases that there are some great graphics ahead. After that, the visual aspects of the game are a mixed bag. The game’s graphics...

Armored Core 4 isn't a must-buy for everyone, but its combat and tenacious missions create a journey worth taking

Armored Core 4 isn't a must-buy for everyone, but its combat and tenacious missions create a journey worth taking. The challenge increases with almost every mission - the norm for developer From Software but not for the genre. This isn't the longest...

Crazy-deep mech building ; A few creative missions ; Four-on-four online play

Armored Core 4 review

 

From Software’s Armored Core series has deteriorated since its first few PlayStation entries. In 2005 we saw two entries to the series; the PlayStation 2's Armored Core: Nine Breaker was met with harsh reviews, and the PlayStation Portable’s Armored...

Overall, Armored Core 4 is a huge step forward in every way. It might have been simplified a lot, and a lot of long-time fans might find that to be disappointing, but I think it was a much-needed shot of juice. You’ve got some pretty good graphics,...
