This is a serious deviation from the AC series. I was personally greatly disappointed in it, as it was not what I was expecting. I do not like that it is based around the multiplier aspect of the game at the cost of the single player game play. The story is extremely weak and somewhat confusing..... disappointing.
Alright, I've been an AC fan since I first played AC3. The series has always been a fast-paced hard-hitting mech brawl. AC5 is a bit of a curve-ball in the series. Instead of the typical single-player focus the Armored Core games have always had, Armored Core 5 focuses mainly on teaming up and slugging things out as a team. The pace of the fighting has slowed in this game as well, forcing a more tactical use of the Cores since you can't relie on raw speed as much. While it's a big step away from what everyone is used to from an AC game, I've been loving this game for the last year, and you can't find a better mech game anywhere else.
