ARMORED CORE V REVIEW
Giant mech robots go to war in the fifth instalment of the successful series.

Armored Core V:
 
It goes without saying that the Armored Core series of games can be called a success, particularly in the Far East and the fact that From Software has released a fifth instalment echoes this fact.
 
Questions remain as to whether the series has picked up the pace or if it is moving along at the pace of a giant metal beast…The following review will reveal all.
 
Storyline:
 
Hmm where to start with this? In all honesty the game is somewhat devoid of any storyline and what little there is moves along at a pretty stagnant pace and proves less than engrossing which is a real shame.
 
In a nutshell you take control of a mech based robot whilst fighting for the resistance group who are attempting to take down the group know only as The Corporation whom have made much of the world uninhabitable and are ruling what is left with a group of sinister machines who will do almost anything to ensure that power remains within their hands.

Along the way the game does feature numerous cut scenes which do their best to pad out what little storyline there is and to be perfectly honest at no stage of playing the game did these grip me. As a result I found that I did lose the plot somewhat (not literally!!) and simply found myself playing through the missions with no real understanding as to why some of them I was undertaking.
 
Gameplay:
 
Despite the obvious lack of storyline the game does make up for this somewhat with better gameplay which starts relatively easy and soon ramps up the difficulty to be incredibly challenging. This is where frustrations can set in particularly during the single player campaign as you progress through numerous recon missions and those which link more into the actual story.
 
As you progress the real beauty is in the customisation of your mech suit and this is most certainly what keeps things fresh as the amount of weaponry you gain is staggering. This is particularly beneficial the further you progress as you encounter much tougher opponents and boss characters whom take some defeating.

At first I was a little underwhelmed with how the game was to pan out in terms of it’s gameplay as the early stages do seem to be lacking a little atmosphere. Despite this even the slower paced introduction will see endless blasting, use of recon drones and boosts which do keep the pace a little more acceptable.
 
If I am being honest then the game is one of those which really does not offer all that much as a single player offering despite the fairly decent amount of content and it is in the multiplayer games where it really does start coming into its own.
