EGM’s TAKE: Armored Core has a large Western following so many fans are eagerly anticipating a return of the franchise. Having experienced the game we found it fun playing as a team. The new fifth player commander role offers something other multiplayer games lack, however if you’re new to the franchise the whole experience can be a little overwhelming and complex, creating a barrier of entry for new players.
