Going into this game I had no expectations aside from playing a game where I play as a mech and blow up other mechs.
That being said it was an extremely average experience that I wouldn't recommend to anyone who isn't already an Armored Core fan or a hardcore Robot enthusiast.
Story: Almost non existent and the bit that is there is below average and almost unnecessary. You pretty much have two types of missions, Story and Orders. Story missions have cutscenes and follow a rebel group that's trying to oppose "Father". The order missions are basically one or two objectives that would have been in the story missions, a mini mission if you will.
Gameplay: Pretty standard. You build a robot out of hundreds of parts that effect dozens of different things such as movement speed, turning speed, boost power, boost duration, attack power, reload speed, attack range, rader, lock-on, ETC.
The one thing that does shine however is the attempt at bridging Single-Player and Multi-Player. In the beginning you create a clan or join another clan, from there you work with other players to make your clan rank go up allowing you to gain access to new parts and take over player controlled areas!
Sound: Both music, sound effects and Voice Acting were all extremely average if not below, none if it will be remembered.
Like I said in the beginning, you will only like this game if you are already a Mech fan or series fan. If you are curious about trying out the Mech genre I'd suggest trying out the
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam games.

I have played every Armored Core that has come out hoping that they would improve in each new game. Sadly though, this one is the same as the rest, boring and not up to par with other games in the graphics department. It has and still feels like a cheap arcade game experience. I used to play MechWarrior 2, 3, & 4 for PC back in the day and thats how I got into Mech games in the first place. So I was hoping to have something similar with Armored Core, but it's not even close.
