Question How does this compare?

I have played all of the original Armored Core games, which were very entertaining. Sadly playing AC4 on 360 was a major letdown. What I'm wanting to know is how does this compare to AC4? Better, worse, or just the same thing with new parts. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

it is far far better than AC4. It is a sequel to AC4 storywise, however. There are alot more parts, the graphics look amazing as well. Def. worth it, I've played all the other AC's as well and I love it.. of course i liked AC4 too though.

I don't know what is was about AC4, but it just seemed like it was all thrown together all to quick. The menu's and controls were just horrible. I was only able to put up with 2 chapters before sending it back.

well... AC: For answer has a new control scheme you can use if you like and it also has the control schemes from AC4... they take some getting used to but once you have the hang of them it works great.

Everything about the For answer is much cleaner and better than in AC4, easier to understand story, better graphics, more parts, etc.

Hey guys. I'm a bit of a Noob to this site but don't hold that against me!

I'm an Armored Core Purest, I had the original on ps1, still do somewhere! And I loved it to bits, I even managed to finish off the last raven which was incredibly difficult! Anyway I'd say that For Answer is the best new game in the series since Armored core 2 on the PS2. I didn't enjoy the first Armored Core 4, it was a bit bland, rushed, and very very hard! Course it could just be I'm getting slow and old lol.

Anyway I was a huge fan of sword kills when I played the first game, I had the moonlight and loved delivering death with that weapon! the great thing about the new games is you start with a sword at the beginning! And its quite respectable! It deals by far the most damage of all my weapons so far and I am keen to see if you can have 2 equiped because that would be madness!

Graphically I'd say the background scenery is a constant let down for the series, its always been pretty bland but it doesn't effect the gameplay or enjoyment and you can now destroy the environments quite nicely!

Another plus is that your booster lasts for minutes at a time and not seconds like it did in the first game, which is really nice seeing as a lot of the levels are fought over water or in the air!!

I haven't gotten far but I gave up on the first AC4 a long time ago and am confident that this one will be better. Not to mention the fact that it now has co-op play!

Same here, I only did two missions in AC:4 and didn't like it and traded it in, I really like AC:FA and I think it's an AC game worth taking a chance on.
