Armored Core: Nine Breaker – Review

If you're reading this review now and have even the slightest interest in checking out what this long-running series has to offer, do yourself a favor and a check out any (and I mean any) of the other games in the series before trying Nine Breaker. In fact, just forget that this game even exists. Without a doubt, this is the worst Armored Core that's ever been produced.

Silent Line: Armored Core – Review

Publisher Agetec may want to get away from the "same-old, same-old" reviews the Armored Core series usually receives, but it's going to take more than a little switcheroo in the title to get the job done. Silent Line is the seventh entry in developer Fromsoft's long-running cult series, but there's really very little to differentiate it from the others previously released. This can be viewed as either a good or bad thing depending on your experience with (and love of) the games, but as a seasoned veteran of all seven, I'm more than ready for this franchise to receive a complete and total overhaul.

Silent Line: Armored Core

Game Description: Silent Line: Armored Core starts from where its predecessor left off. A future Earth that has seen the collapse of the machine controlled society and the return of humans to the surface of the planet. You are once again to become a Raven, a mercenary hired by the government to break through the silent line and discover the truth behind the enigma., Expansion to Armored Core 3, with several new enhancements over the previous game; the most compelling of which is the long-awaited analog control.

Lost Kingdoms II – Review

At first glance, the game appears identical to the first, which would have been a very welcome thing in my opinion due to the original's short playtime. However, this is not the case. Numerous changes to the formula have been made, and it pains me to say that almost all of them are poor ones. Lost Kingdoms II retains some appeal, though it's a clearly inferior sequel in several ways.

Armored Core 3 – Review

How many times can one person play the same game? At least six, evidently. While I still call myself a fan of FromSoft and their Armored Core series, I think I've finally reached my breaking point. I've taken all five of the previous games to 100% and beyond. Its safe to say that I know these games inside and out, and there's no doubt that I've enjoyed being along for the ride.
