Weak

Deceived Maybe?

What can I say I’m a little disappointed to say the least lets begin, I poped the game into my new ultra slim 500gb PS3 right at the beginning I was blown away by a stunning CGI video with action an d booms and blams! With stunning CGI and as we all know CGI in game intro videos demonstrating a kind of gameplay feel is a BIG NO NO In the world of next gen gaming because it makes the game automatically set a Expectation for the games graphic and gameplay quality, although we all understand that graphics and sound isint everything for a game.
But we would expect a 3rd person Action title like AC V to be BUAH!!! Amazing actiong boom blams fun! Right?. Wrong! the actual game has none next gen graphics my mech looked like a PS2 AC release the movement was blocky and unrealistic compared to Front Mission Evolved mechs which WAS next Gen gameplay and graphics but lacked the customization that ArmCore always provided, the environment all looked the same some with snow and some with less visibility that were more mountainous overall it went from a big dark blur to a big light blur (star wars reference lol) seriously the game was lacking compared to what I would expect from a Next gen game . Never the less i could maybe have over looked the already poorly rated graphics up until I realized there was no STORY! Sigh… so we have poor graphics, poor sound quality, no story, not much to look forward to unless you’re a die hard AC fan.

Bad

Boring and clumsy

Not much substance here unless you are a huge fan of the series or armed, angry mechs. Clumsy, over reactive controls, stuck on rails, just not much to offer.

I'm keeping this one short: Go out, find Armored Core 3 and play that.
