Game stinks

Well it stinks for me because i am not good at this game at all , the controls are to hard for me and i get hit once and die. The achevements are easy only if your good at the game.

I agree somewhat on the conrols, they are pretty unresponsive, but I LOVE the customization aspect.

When I said UNRESPONSIVE controls, I did not mean UNCUSTOMIZABLE controls. By unresponsive I meant that the game didn't react at times when I pressed certain buttons and moved certain analog sticks.

it would be nice if you were a little more specific but your gun was probably reloading they dont make many weapons rapid fire it would be nice if they did though and whats so hard about this game everything dies in one hit besides nexts and they even only take about 6 to 7 i just dont think you know how to make a mech if you're having trouble

^ That is a REALLY big, fat, run-on sentence. Posts like those are confusing to read. You need to put periods and commas in your sentences. Please.

Anyway, I'd have to say that now that i've unlocked a large amount of stuff, the game is VERY fun. The replay value on missions, once you get good weapons, is high. Multiplayer is just a blast now that regulation file 1.30 is out. It is a really good game if you be patient with it.

so, the demo seems kinda arcady, but it could just be the old build.

is the actual game smoother to play? the game seemed like it would be kinda fun if it wasnt so blocky feeling.

There's no autosave and the controls just suck on this game. I don't really enjoy this at all.

i think its pretty fun, but the production values are definitely lacking. i kinda like how a lot of the missions are so short, i think it would get pretty boring otherwise. some of them are pretty frustrating too so its nice that they aren't too long. i remember playing A LOT of the first armored core on the ps1, but this is the first one ive played since then for some reason. achievements could be more diverse.

I don't like how there's no Retry button if you fail a mission, and how missions end long after you complete/fail it (like 10 seconds). It's just really inconvenient. The Simulator is fun, but there's just so little of them.

I don't know about buying this game, in about 40-50 hours I had 97% of the achievements. Also, the multiplayer is probably dead, and the actual customization of EVERYTHING felt like too much. I love Chromehounds but the level of customization was too much for me. 3-dimension fighting is also kinda weird, sometimes it feels like I'm fighting to get around the environment instead of the enemy, who is everywhere, all shooting at once. I'm not really sure who the game was marketed for, hardcore tuners and gearheads likely don't like the arcade style missions, and casual gamers won't like the in-depth NEXT customization. In defense of the casual market appeal, there is the option to auto-tune and the auto-lock-on is an absolute must for this game to be playable. From my experience, it is much better to have a NEXT that can dodge incoming fire instead of taking direct hits with heavy armor (start with the EN efficient NEXT, you will know what I mean).

DOUBLE POST.


Anyways, I pretty much have to agree with shinobi on A LOT of things...don't try getting this game now, not that you would because shinobi dug up an old thread in a game no one really cares about anymore...The online was sluggish when it was in its prime, so I very well doubt its activity to this point. However, I am pretty damn sure that there are people who ONLY play AC4 non-stop, but if you just got the game, they would exceed your skill level. I'd say this game is a rent for a litle boost in gamerscore. Since all its achievments are single player, the dead multiplayer wouldn't be a factor. I REALLY suggest rentning this and experiencing it, it's a great game.

I used to play alot of armored core back when it was on PS1 and a few PS2 titles and I gotta say this vers. is horrible. The controls are horrid and the menu's are the worst i've seen in ages. I hope they wise up next series.

I never played any of the old Armored Core games and I managed to get a 970.

Once you figure out what weapons to use it gets easier.

This game I wouldn't say stinks it falls somewhere in mediocreville. It takes alot to get used to and the learning curve is steep. But, spend some time with this game and it turns out to be not half bad.

The right build for your mech makes all the difference. Especially, when going for the highest ranks on hard. (Kojima Weapons-are your friends)

I disagree, if you give the game a chance instead of making an unreasonable remark about it after playing 10 minutes of it then I think you would find that its an overall fun game.

The only aspect of this game that is really poor is the storyline, not that it was bad per se but just that I didnt have a clue what was going on in the cutscenes

I'd have to agree this this version isn't the best the series has to offer, but I've been playing and enjoying the Armored Core series since Armored Core 1 for psx so I still enjoy this one... Just not as much as say.... 2 or even 3....

If you think this game's controls are hard to get used to, you should try the old games' classic controls. In my opinion they dumbed down the controls/interface in this game to try to reduce the insane learning curve of the earlier games in the series.
