Armored Core 4 exploits the awesome
power of PlayStation 3 to deliver astounding visuals
and eye-watering special effects, including dynamic
lighting and shadows, swirling water and mysterious
fog. Mech designs benefit from massively more detailed
3D models and the arenas and environments now offer
a giant leap in interactivity and detail. Players can
use these interactive features to their advantage, for
instance by smashing open arena walls to let in the
light and search for enemies, or by hiding in water
to ambush rivals.
The classic customisation returns in
full effect in Armored Core 4. Every element of the
game is designed to offer players the highest possible
level of customisation when designing and building their
mechs. With just a few simple and intuitive steps, players
can augment their creations with serious weaponry, external
armour and internal hardware and then fine tune and
tweak each unit for best performance. The possibilities
are almost infinite! Players are able to test drive
their creations in a series of trials and then, when
ready for battle, challenge other mechs in order to
advance through the exciting tournaments and leagues.
Multiplayer modes feature heavily in
Armored Core 4, with deathmatch games and most importantly,
full online support for battling with international
players as well as exchanging match data, emblems and
even entire robot creations.
With its abundance of features, awesome
destructive firepower and fast-paced action, coupled
with the incredible level of detail in customising mechs,
Armored Core 4 is a sure-fire hardcore action game smash.
