    Through an AC fan filter, the official reviews out there aren't too far off. It missed the sweet spot in of old and new.

    Things you might want to know if you've played AC before and the reviews aren't cutting it. 1. It is part ps2 AC and AC 4 with a little too much chromehounds thrown in. 2. Progress to new parts...

    Good game overall! Have the patients for the learning curve (like most AC games) and you can get a lot of fun out of it.

    I bought this game the day it came out. I've always been a huge Armored Core fan starting with Nexus on a friends PS2 and then getting 4, 4A on 360 topped of with stealing a brothers PS2 to buy Last R...

    Are you the sort of gamer who finds complexity and a steep learning curve off-putting, or do you thrive on them?

    If the latter is true, and you have any interest in the giant mech genre, then you shouldn't pass this game up -- it's that simple. The Armored Core series has always had the well-deserved reputation ...

    A step forward in the series, where the players finally run the Corporations and hire the Mercenaries. I'm not joking.

    The Good Players finally call the shots by forming and managing Corporations. Addition of the Scan Mode may be revolutionary for this genre. Constant communication menus lets you know what the ...

    A huge disappointment to all armored core fans out there.

    Rated on March 25, 2012 by aznfatalflip

    AC4 and ACFA players will be VERY disappointment with this latest installment. Let me cut the story short. YOU ARE GROUNDED. You can barely quick boost any more and you are SUPER SLOW. The companies a...

    Flawed multi-player design prevents it from being what it should.

    Rated on March 27, 2012 by Falru

    If you like taking two giant mechs and smacking them together until one of them breaks than you'll definitely want to give Armored Core V a chance. The first thing anyone needs to know about this g...

    I remember when this series was awesome was easy to get into now it's too complex and fast paced and really boring.

    Rated on May 17, 2013 by davidsworld3

    This series has been failing for 10 years now, armored core 2 and 3 are the best in the series on the ps2, anymore and it just gets dumbed down. Graphics are not even very appealing anymore everyth...

    Armored Core V's enjoyment comes from online. If you have no online capabilities then it's hard to recommend.

    Rated on July 01, 2012 by Domstercool

    From Software is on a high at the moment with the success of the brilliant Dark Souls. No one would have ever thought that a game that is so significantly difficult, a game that doesn't hold your hand...
