Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
Armored Core 3 combines the Eastern world and their ways of building giant robots, with the Western world and their ways of blowing things to kingdom come.
In this game, it is very easy to spend more time tuning your AC than using it, given the amount of parts there are.
Once you get to the field however, all hell breaks loose, and you're it. The immense power your AC has is staggering. However, the enemy should not be underestimated, as they are equally powerful, if not more. You have your work cut out for you.
Sweet, sweet looking work. The graphics and sound in this are brilliant for the PS2. You will wince at every hit you take, and revel in every one you give.
