"Having never played an Armored Core game, I knew little about the series. When asking one of my friends, he told me it was like some of the Gundam games he had, so I had a set idea of what to expect. I had watched him play those kinds of games many times, never touching them myself and thought they were interesting. The combat seemed flawlessly smooth and he danced around the battlefield without any effort.
Oh yeah. That's not the case for me. As I said, I never played any of the games like this, so when I started, I felt truly overwhelmed when playing. The shoulder buttons controlled all my weapons and my booster, and remembering which one was which in the middle of battle led to some interesting and funny moments. A point blank heat seeking missile can lead to a lot of fun."
