Horrible

Riddled with bugs

First: You can pick from 3 different control setups... BUT you can't have both Strafe AND auto-boost, both are pretty much a requirement to function. My arms randomly are 3 feet below my mech. Graphics randomly glitch the entire screen out. Graphics are dated, and interface is really old looking. Combat is a bit dull.

The storyline is short. Very short. This, however, doesn't mean that this game is bad. The parts are all very well placed and configuring your Armored Core is a very worthwhile endeavor. If you go into this game thinking you'll win every battle just by being clever, you're only about half right in how to do things. You do need to be clever, but your AC needs to reflect that you really understand what it means to be adaptable. The missions are alright, but some of them feel too short, though its understandable as some of the objectives don't require much effort to breeze through. That being said, the other side of that is that some of the missions are actually really dependent on how well you tune your mech and which parts you use in accordance to your projected readiness. If you don't plan well, you might have a tough time.

All in all, this game is worth a play mostly because you wont ever play every mission on your first time through, which means you'll never get to do everything or unlock everything. Another point on this games record is the multiplayer. If you jump in thinking you'll be able to win matches because you're decent at the mech controls in the story you'll end up getting scraped off a wall somewhere. This game requires a lot pf patience and attention to your AC so that you can find the right mech schematic for your personal play style. New players will enjoy the fresh new speed to the game while older players of the series will enjoy the new feel to the controls. If you can't adapt, don't play. Its as simple as that.

way better than AC4, more missions and weapons. Hopefully 5 will blow it away.
