    Yet another under appreciated Armored Core game.

    Armored Core: Nexus takes place in a future where (like every other AC game) huge corporations all but rule the planet and as a Raven, in other words a mercenary, you take jobs from these corporations. The storyline of N... Read Full Review

    Game review + winning AC build inside

    Review For whatever reason, the Armored Core series has always been extremely underrated. I will concede that some of the missions can be boring, but everything else about the game is incredible. The art style is awesom... Read Full Review

    The most realistic Armored Core ever made!

    This is, with no doubt, the most realistic Armored Core ever made... But is a little too realistic... The graphical detail of this game is immense! The quality of the environments and the machines in it are well beyond t... Read Full Review

    This is the best Armored Core game on the PS2.

    There have been lots of Armored Core games on the PS2, but none of them are quite as great as Nexus. It's basically has the same concept as any other Armored Core game, but with harder missions and more customisation it'... Read Full Review

    Patience is the key

    In the game you have missions, it doesn't matter if you failed them or not, the game goes on. But, the story goes changing. The graphics are pretty good, and the sense of controling a big robot is great also. I've played... Read Full Review

    this game is awesome.

    I have always loved robots especially big ones who are armed to the bone. So in other words this game is a dream come true for me. This is the first Armored Core game I ever played (and until now also the only one) but I... Read Full Review

    If you only buy one Armored Core-this is the one to get

    Ah yes, another armored core!...those were pretty much my thoughts as I yanked this off the rack at my local gamestop. However, once I popped it in at home it ended up being more then I had expected. Having played ever... Read Full Review

    Another exceptional title in the long running franchise.

    Armored core has come a LONG way with each game getting better and better. The latest fixes many of the former problems. Graphics- 8/10 The graphics don't look all that different from the previous two games. There's ... Read Full Review

    One small step for man, one giant leap for huge mechs

    Armoured core has come a long way since it first started out, and having played all of the ps2 titles, i'd say its a great achievment from where this game stands today. Though the earlier instalment of the AC series may ... Read Full Review
