by RavenVII One of My Most Anticipated Games.
I have been playing these games since Armored Core 2 on the PS2 and I can't wait for this to come out. In my opinion, Gundam doesn't have anything on this. As for the past games, whoever still has a PS2, find the old Armored Core games and try em out. You won't be disappointed. This would be a great game for anyone who likes the "Giant robot With Tons'o Gunz" style.
Rated 8 out of 10 by someoneelse Great for PvP
At first I was skeptical about the new control scheme and mechanics when it first gave me control of the AC. I found the Mission mode to be kind of slow and cumbersome. Also I was initially disappointed with the graphics. I was pleasantly surprised at how many people were online the release day. for a non-mainsteam game series that gets little publicity, I wouldn't have known about it's release unless i was actively looking for the new Armored Core. The PvP server is great. there is so little lag even when playing a 5v5 match. The new controls aren't great for missions but work well for PvP. I liked For Answer better for the mission mode and ACV better for PvP. Luckily the pre-order bonus unlocked most of the parts for me, so i don't have to really worry about playing the mission mode to unlock new parts. i'll be busy with battling other players for a while. It seems to be much more popular than the previous iterations, though. I was just expecting a little better overall from From Software and Bandai Namco.
Rated 0 out of 10 by iWiLlFlYtOdAy Anticipation and High Expectations
I have high expectations for this game due to the multiple postponing of this games release. Also due to the fact i feel Armored Core: For answer was a exceptionally good game. When seeing the trailers and beta i noticed the graphics got revamped and the fluidity of the gameplay had increase to my excitement, i also noticed the new HUD design and it gave me a nostalgic feel, reminding me of the older games such as Armored core: Nexus, Formula Front, Last Raven, Silent Line, etc, I'm just very excited to see how much they have improved this game, and if it has become more in-depth from the previous games. Also looking forward to the new types of weapons, and the new sniping feature i had hear about sometime in mid 2011. So basically put I'm extremely hyped up about this game, and i would personally recommend it to any mech fan. Just looking forward to playing another solid mech game in the Armored Core series!
Rated 1 out of 10 Failsauce...
--I was a major fan of the Armored Core series. I've played all the games and loved the difficulty, storyline, and depth of all of them. They all had something to offer.
--As time went on, the games were provided more depth. I would have to say the tier 3 games were the best. They gave you more and more combat appeal(Exceed Orbit, dual wielding) not to mention the music was phenomenal.
--When we got to Nexus and after, the concept of the arena diminished, therefore destroying a main aspect of the game. I would have to say 9breaker, Nexus, Last Rave, 4 and 4A were still great games however.
....Armored Core V? What is it exactly? Am I playing Call of Duty? I miss the steep learning curve the game used to offer(fan-based anti-newb filter) and how the games actually had great storylines.
Armored Core V is a disgrace and only people who are new to gaming would enjoy it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MosVishus Excited yet concerned
I am a long time loyal armored core fan, and I believe its a series that has gotten better with age, but the last 2 installments while amazingly awesome did kinda worry me with being juggled around by sega and ubisoft, (now don't get me wrong I love both sega and ubisoft) it just worries me that maybe now namco bandai might not be on the same page as far as how the game controls, will they change it? I certainly hope not, but that being said the screenshots I've seen look great, the graphics look as good if not better than the last 2, and don't get me started on the environments, but still as any true fan of a technical game like armored core I have to be concerned about how a new developer will pull it off, but at the same time I couldn't be more excited about a new 1 coming out, can't wait for January 3rd I already have mine reserved and I'll probably pay it off completely long before it comes out, thats all I have to say and I hope that any armored core fans out there will read this and hopefully find it useful, and feel free to add me on PSN, if you didn't get it from the preview my PSN name is MosVishus, peace!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Dobis fun for people who don't complain about everything
I've never played any Armored Core games until this one. My good friend recommended it to me a couple months ago and I decided to give it a shot. I thoroughly enjoy the game on almost every level. It's not perfect by any means, and there's a few bugs that need to be fixed, but a lot of the things people are complaining about are either non-existent, or they're just not paying attention while navigating the game. The graphics are good, but not great, but it more than makes up for it in game play. I've been playing in anywhere from 1-7 hours a day since it was released, and I am more than happy with my purchase. It certainly is not for everyone, but much like any game by From Software, if you know what you're getting yourself into, you should enjoy it.

I don't have any hopes for this what-so-ever. The other games could've been real good, but they just didn't get adrenaline pumping, it was pretty difficult, or I just suck at these games because I'm good at other games like CoD and T:WFC and I found AC4 boring and difficult in places. And no I'm not trying to brag, I'm proving a point. I probably won't get this, I'm surprised it's being made. Sorry to be the only negative person to post so far, but I just can't see this series taking off, on the 5th game it isn't very popular, not a good sign.
Rated 0 out of 10 by IvoryAaron Ok Heres the real info on ACV for everyone
OK, yes the game will be more aggressive BUT it will also be slower as to add more tactical approaches to situations. Also still unsure if there is an actual offline mode, if so 90% of the game is ONLINE now similiar to MAG. The chrome hounds people are working with the AC crew now, there will also be an online CONQUEST mode..similar to the ChromeHounds war. So far there are 500 something parts. DLC is still to be announced. If you want the best info just look up the Armored Core V interview on Utube, The producer of the game goes in depth about what the game is going to have and be.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Devistation 5 MPH Mechs
Does any one remember the commercial for A.C.4? I would love to roll in a mech that moves faster than 5 MPH. Unfortunatly this is not the game to let you do that. This game reminds me of other disapointing mech games from Bandai. The setup is confusing and the game play is just sad. If you have never played Armored Core before I recomend playing this instalment first then checking out the previos A.C. games that are much better. It will be less disapointing that way. The other A.C. games are great and if this one was supposed to top them it failed completely.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Dp12593 Very well-made game.
A fair warning about buying a game from bandai should always leave that impression that the words they say are going to sound a little... silly? But with that aside, the experience of the gameplay is excellent. It is NOT the type of game where you just pit them in a fight, it's a wide map that involves completing your mission with very few challenges. PvP holds that whole experience though. Other than that, the customization options are endless and you can be very creative with the type of AC you build. Would definitely recommend it.
