This is absolutly nothing like any other Armored Core Games. Its a sim not mech battles.

This game is crap. Its not crappy looking it just plays like crap. First of all it seems like there are a million parts to choose from for each category and it compeletly overwhelmed me at first, but once you get used to all the parts and find the good ones then its fun. Fun that takes hours though. You most likely won't see any battle action for 30 minutes, because it takes that long to customize your mech .The first 6 or seven missions are actually quite fun. Then around the 8th mission the difficulty ramps up to near impossible. This is not a battling game this is a mech simulator! If you want a mech on mech battle go play armored core 3 or one of the later ones, those are much better at delivering exciting battle simulations. But if you like the simulation and are willing to go another 30 min or so into developing you mechs AI settings then this is the perfect game for you. It sounds good and looks good however so i will give it that.
