Console Monster: Armored Core V Review

Console Monster: In a future where the arid lands have been ravaged by war, The Resistance must rise up against ‘Father’ and free the city from his oppressive rule. It sounds pretty fun on the outset, but sadly like many mech games before it, Armored Core V misses the point by a considerable margin. It leaves gamers still yearning for that enjoyable, immersive Mech game seen in the past.

Armored Core V starts well, you're given a big cinematic opening with Armored Cores (AC’s) smashing each other to bits, beautiful CGI being flashed in front of you and you’ll be thinking “Damn I can’t wait to get behind the stick of an AC.” You’re then thrown into a mission and all the hype dissipates with a simple fade in. The cut scenes look awesome, sadly the actual game looks pretty dull, and that seems to be a running theme throughout the game in all honesty. (Armored Core 5, PS3, Xbox 360) 60/100

ACV is great. Don't listen to the reviewers. Everyone who's actually played it right has enjoyed it. Reviewers these days NEED easy hand holding games.
