A good rent. I severely doubt anyone will want to keep it.

I didn't have any issue with the graphics, and found them fairly decent. No slowdown that i noticed and the animations and explosions are pretty good. The voice acting is hit and miss....Amy's voice is WAY too high pitched for me.

As for some gripes, there is a HUGE difficulty spike about 3/4 the way through with a certain boss. The game seemed way too easy to me on Normal until i got to the fight and then i had issues advancing. It takes time and memorization, i wouldn't have minded a few more extra difficult fights, but alas most of the game is a cakewalk. Also, the story goes from decent in the beginning to kinda cheesy by the end. Very predictable.

It's a good game all in all and if you dig 3rd person action shooters, you'll like this one. The customization is not super deep but welcome nonetheless. Finally...Square-Enix...why did we get this 5-7 game and NOT Front Mission 5? Seriously? It's a fun rent but i can't see anyone plunking down 60 bucks for less than 10 hours of gameplay. So, if you like the series or just like mech games, give it a try. It's not a bad way to waste a night or two.

PS. Double Helix made this game so don't expect it to "feel" like Square made it.

Really fun game from the start but missions are way to similar. good customization user friendly controls. Graphics are good but after playing the missons kinda gets old, at the start of the game you can never kill a boss only make them run away and knowing you will have to fight them all agian later (stupid i think) every set up for fighting a boss is the same... really trying to make myself finish the game so i didnt get this game for nothing

I love mech fighting games, I really like the scale of this game. I also like that you don't fly around like a mig jet!!!

The customization sucks compared to armored core, and the layout is plain stupid. But I like the what you can do, just not menu system.

The game is good minus the boss battles. Also some boss battles restrict what you have to use which really sucks.

The acting...is....dramatic....maybe...a bit...too.......much. long pauses where laughable.

My suggestion is play on easy, or switch to easy (main menu when you are not In the game) for boss battles.
