Armored Core: Verdict Day is basically a multiplayer expansion for the original Armored Core V that came out last year. That game also had multiplayer, but was a more traditional AC game, with an emphasis on the single player campaign, and a promising multiplayer component that fell victim to not having enough players to sustain matches. Verdict Day comes to AC fans one year later offering the reverse; a simplistic single player campaign has been tacked on to a very elaborate multiplayer mode. In that regard, Verdict Day works. Unfortunately, it’s strictly in that regard that the game has any value.
