Multiplayer, Oh Yeah!
This version of Armored Core is different than any other I have played before. But, this is a really good kind of different. If you are a gamer that is into more multiplayer than single player, you are in for a treat. First things first, the story campaign is still available. It is short and quite boring. The area are really bland and the story has no real point. You are sent and guided to destroy particular enemies. But, in the middle of playing, your objectives can change at a minutes notice and you are redirected to another objective.
Now, onto the core of the game, the multiplayer. At the start of the game, you will be required to either join a team or create your own. Anything that you do in the game has a direct effect on the team. In order to build levels and team points, you must take part in various order missions. These missions can consist of destroying all enemies on the map. You may also be forced to face one AC in a one on one battle. This is more less the arena mode of this game. But, if you want to get help, you can play co op and hire a mercenary to help destroy those enemies or that tough AC. You can register and become a mercenary yourself.
You can also play in free battle mode. Free battle lets you go in a one on one match against another player. There are 5 vs. 5 Team death match. There is an 8 free for all match. This is just fun to play like you would Call of Duty online, but only with robots.
You can still do the same with your mech as past games. Buying parts and customizing is still huge in the AC formula. You can paint your mech, create your own emblems, test out your mech on new parts added before heading into battle.
Finally, conquest mode allows you to take control of an area on the map that has been occupied by another team. The more territories you claim and hold onto, the more your team will dominate the online community. This is a great game for fans of the AC series. First time players may be confused and the learning curve can be steep. But, once you get the hang of customization, playing order missions and dominating territories, the game will be addicting!
I CANT WAIT
those 3 words. I cant wait. the moment i laid my eyes on mechassault and mechwarrior, i was obsessed with these awesome killing machines known as mechs. very soon after, i started watching gundam on toonami. i was hooked. there is nothing else i can say. I have always bought every mech game and am looking so forward to this one. I am excited and hope this game will be as good or even better than for answer.
If you are searching and searching for a great Co-Op game and you are your friends are bored to death or frustrated with plane Jane shooters then this is the game for you. Crazy Customization along with the ease of joining a team with your friends or making your own and the ability to join them at a moments notice using the rendezvous option is amazing. The entire game is Co-Op or you can ride solo. The options are all yours and they are all great.
The game is awesome. I am a huge fan of Mech games and this game is fantastic. The customization is awesome. What is cool about it is if you are new to this style of game, it is easy to pick up and do damage. If you want to be really good at it though, it takes a bit more time and strategy. So it is a solid fit for everyone.
Graphics are cool and the online play is great.
If I'm not mistaken, the multiplayer is gonna be like chromehounds, which Im excited for ( I played it avidly before the server closed). Words cannot describe how anxious i am for this game's multiplayer, It's gonna be great.
The demo was released on the 19th of January exclusively to the Japanese Xbox Live marketplace. The online gameplay will go from January 21st 10:00 to January 22nd 24:00. Playing it so far, I'm truly excited for the final release. Teams of players from around the world work together both tactically and strategically to obtain enemy players assets, and protect allied assets. During all this, the player still experiences the vast ammount of options provided for customizing your Armored Core (your 5 meter tall machine of destruction). This is a game that will definitely engage it's players in the trials of war. Hoo-rah!
I have been playing the AC series since I was just a kid when the playstation version came out. For a long time armored core was my favorite game series but AC has not been without its problems. The series took a major dive for a while due to a serious decrease in what I would call quality of game play. AC4 the first game on this gen continued this pattern of poor game play despite new features with what can only be called dull and uninspired mech combat. This pattern however came to a screeching halt with armored core for answer. For answer was an outstanding title that lived up to the older gens titles like AC master of arena, AC2, and AC3. I think it is safe to say that ACV is shaping up to be a great mech game and looks like it is bringing exciting new features some of which have been long over due like the new multiplayer facets. I'm betting this will be a great game with tons of fun to be had simply because the developer seems to have an idea of what their fans want again. Here is to the end of an agetech and the beginning of a new one where giant robot battles reign supreme.
Just a first impression since I have only been playing the game for a few hours or so. I think the graphics are bad, the in game movie's are great but compared to the graphics on AC for answer a big step down. There are lots of bugs with purchasing inventory, for instance I purchased a pair of legs, generator ,weapons and they were nowhere to be found in my inventory. I could only find them by going to the sell screen, also at the end of a few missions the screen just goes to the map view and you don't get credit or currency for completing the mission. And the game just sits there like its frozen, and you have to back out and go to the Xbox home page screen and run the game again. This may be in part to the game being new "Just released today" and the servers being overloaded I don't know but it gets really annoying. I definitely think this is a rent before you buy game.
Armored Core fans will not be disappointed.
First review of the game, and let's just say that Armored Core V still has the kick the series is known for. With the pre-order Heavy Assault Pack, I now have much more ordnance to demolish waves of hostiles in one go. The game's speed may be reduced, compared to the Armored Core 4 Universe. but that adds more tactical combat, not just how fast you can boost side-to-side. I have only played with this about an hour, but I can tell, From Software still has it ^^.
