Armored Core: for Answer demo out in Japan

The awkwardly-named Armored Core: for Answer has just received the demo treatment on the Japanese PlayStation Store.

Clocking in at a modest 517 MB, the demo should provide the answer to our question - is this new iteration in the series a significant upgrade from the letdown that was Armored Core 4? According to PSU's forum members, it's not, citing horrid controls and a poor framerate as reasons to the contrary.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've been a big Armored Core fan since the beginning, but it seems like the last few installments have come out of nowhere every six months, and the first time I usually see them, they're already in the bargain bins. I wish they would just stop playing the EA game, and put more effort into making a quality AC that reinvents the same old series. The concept is incredible, but its getting a little stale.

this game has had one of the macross artist working on it. its been said that it is much better than ac4 by those playing the japanese version of the game
