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.

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.

Ultimately, Armored Core 4 offers nothing we haven't seen in Mech Warrior or Zone of the Enders, aside from a little next-gen polish that is of mixed success. However, it is still a very enjoyable action romp, which also contains plenty of accessible customisation and strategy, and has a feel about it that screams hardcore, without demanding players trade in their social life for Achievement points and a monitor-kissed, pale skin tone.
