Armored Core: Formula Front


Giant robot fighting, a past-time that has been a fan-favorite for many, many years has finally come to the PSP. Now you can whoop some metallic ass anywhere at anytime,...

Armored Core 3 Portable


Believe it or not, there are a lot of PlayStation 2 games I wouldn't mind seeing ported to the PSP. For instance, I would love to play Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 on the go. Obscure gems like Bombastic and Sky Odyssey would really shine on the small...

There are a lot of PlayStation 2 games I wouldn't mind owning on the PSP ... and Armored Core 3 is not one of them. If you're not already a fan of the series you won't be won over by this clunky installment. With an enhanced sequel coming out later...

Armored Core 3 Portable


Have you played Armored Core 3 on PS2? Would you like the same experience with fewer buttons on the PSP? Then Armored Core 3 Portable is exactly what you need. Cumbersome controls, dated graphics, and ad-hoc only multiplayer are all Armored Core 3...

Rotten Core


Armored Core 3 Portable serves as an archaic, painful reminder of how far the series has come.

Small areas, a short draw distance, low-res textures and a bland presentation all drag down the look of things far too much.

Armored Core 3 Portable


Just give us Chromehounds 2 (or Chromehounds PSP) already.

I'll be the first to admit I had a bit of a predisposition going in to this review and, as such, my opinions of AC3 may have been a little preemptive. However, I would like to think that having an open-minded predisposition would make it much easier...

Armored Core 3 Portable


These ancient mechs are more dated than Robotech

Customizable controls ; Vast array of mech parts ; Ad hoc multiplayer

Clunky PSP controls ; User-unfriendly mission structure ; No effort to ease in newbies

It's possible Armored Core 3 may well have offered something during the PS2 generation, but whatever relevance it might've had seven years ago - especially given its inelegant transition to the PSP - has long since passed.

Armored Core: Formula Front


If nothing else, Armored Core: Formula Front needs recognition for being one of the biggest night-and-day changes any localized game has received, compared to its original Japanese release. When the game was released in Japan, it was, quite literally,...

That whole "control" thing is well-integrated into the game like it was actually there in the first place ; Very good graphics and sound ; Tons and tons of options for building your mech

So many options, in fact, that the game is pretty intimidating and often mystifying, and what little in-game help is offered isn't nearly enough ; There's no story or plot here ; The controls are awkward to the point where you may just be better off...

If you want a game to shoot at stuff and blow things up, keep moving. This isn't what you want. However, if you want an extremely deep (and maybe a little confusing) strategy game about building the perfect war machine, this is the perfect game for you.

Armored Core: Formula Front


In addition to climbing the single-player league system, the game includes an ad-hoc multiplayer mode so that you and a friend can wirelessly battle your bots. Sadly, no online multiplayer mode is included. You'll have to hope that one of your buddies...

Armored Core: Formula Front Review


Tired of the long wait for a next generation mech combat game? Hit up your PSP for some robot fighting fun to pass the time.

But I'll still give Armored Core Formula Front a recommendation. It contains far more greatness than I expected in its customization features, its difficult, and its visuals, and the multiplayer is admirable if not stupendous. Just make sure that,...

Armored Core 3 Portable Review



Melting scores of enemy Armored Cores with my trusty flamethrower

Being sliced apart by beam swords for relying too heavily on my trusty flamethrower

Despite the fact that the controls were a pretty major hurdle to my enjoyment of the game, it is a solitary shortcoming on what is otherwise a perfect example of a PSP game done right, and one that I willingly accept in the face of all of the...
