Ill be honest, I have never played an AC game before now but this one is terrible! It starts you out on some random mission with no explanation of the story or what your objective is. You hear random dialogue from two girls who you have never seen or have no idea who they are. 30 minutes in and I still have no idea who I am, who the enemy is, or what the point of the game is, let alone the plot. Stay away, play Mario instead, atleast it has action and a freakin plot.
The main problem with this game is, is that it doesn't feel like an Armored Core game. The game should be about mad environments like Mars or some type of intergalactic environment not just Earth and the control set up is all wrong. Sure the switching of weapons and joystick control's are good but other than that it's all wrong. In short if you like Mech games then go buy Armored Core 4 or For Answer because this one....just isn't the same.
