Armored Core: Nine Breaker – A Robotic Fantasy Flop

Seldom do I ever truly despise a video game. But Armored Core: Nine Breaker published by AGETEC.INC has to qualify as one of the worst games I have ever played. This head to head robot fighting game is no where near worth the monetary investment. It looks like a game freshly made by an unimaginative nerd in his basement, on his PC while he was waiting for his porn to finish downloading. The Controls are slow and difficult to master.

The Graphics are barely average for a Playstation 2 title. The weapons are your basic rockets and bombs along with shields… Boring!!! Not to mention the stages, each one is as dull as the next. And many are glitched up with rediculas things that happen in them when one leaves the battle zone. I only played the game for about three hours and I recall several instances of losing matches because my opponent disappeared beyond the battle field and shot me while I could not persue them because if I did I would lose.

But this is not sour grapes talking. I was greatly impressed with the cover and the rear description of game. This was the main reason I bought it. Wow! Talk about misleading the consumer. The game is centered around building your own robot and taking on a host of computer generated robots of all sorts. It sounds fun in principle but the reality is very different.

You may find the robot you make rather sinister looking and impressive but the second you battle your will realize why you should not have bought this game. Stearing is terrible, moving around is a job and a half and not at all fun. And reguardless of how powerful your robot is the battle expirence is just dull, you will be hopping around the screen over using your boosters firing randomly at the other moving robot on the far side.

Even when you win you will tend to wonder “so what?” personally (and I truely hate saying this about a PS2 title) I would rather be reading. All in all Armored Core: Nine Breaker is an average game at best and should if anything be rented and not bought.
