Between the streamlined assembly process, the retooled control scheme, and the junking of the cooling system and other mechanics that slowed down the action, Armored Core 4 is far more approachable game than previous installments in the series. Its heavier emphasis on arcade-style mech-on-mech action also means that its enhanced fast-paced action will appeal to a more mainstream audience. And even though it isn't as complex as it once was, there's still plenty to obsess over for the hardcore lot.

Multiplayer adds life, and we guess it's cool that Armored Core 4 is nearly identical on both PS3 and 360 (though the 360 has voice chat) so nobody gets a vastly inferior version. But ultimately, this series is going to have to evolve into a more accessible, playable, solo-friendly experience if it ever wants to be known as anything other than a niche curiosity.

Armored Core 4 isn't a must-buy for everyone, but its combat and tenacious missions create a journey worth taking. The challenge increases with almost every mission – the norm for developer From Software but not for the genre. This isn't the longest game; some missions were designed to last no more than a few minutes. But if you love mech combat and crave its action in next-gen form, you'll find hours of entertainment and weeks of replay value in Armored Core 4.
