This Rating, Review, and General Discussion topic is focused on Armored Core.


To help add a touch of personalization to the ACU Wiki articles covering each AC game, I have decided to add a section in their infoboxes that showcases what the ACU community feels about each game. This section is a rating of the games quality and approval by the ACU community and it is titled "ACU Rating". This rating is based off of a five point scale, ranging from one (a horrible game) to five (an incredible game). Only votes cast using the poll will be counted towards the Wiki's rating system. I will periodically check these topics and update the ACU Rating section for each game. The rating for a game will be the average of all of the votes cast for that game, rounded to the nearest integer.

The other important feature of this topic is to give us a source for the content that will go on each games main article page. This means everyone should write some form of review for whatever part of the game in question they feel like writing for. Even a few sentences giving your view on the games mechanics, story, or part balance can be highly helpful. We need as many viewpoints as possible to help insure the articles accurately reflect community views on the AC games. Also, this helps give us extra material to work with when filling in the main article pages for the AC games.

Of course, you're free to rate and review the games on whatever categories you can think of. If you can't think of anything, I have provided a list at the bottom of this post that can help you with picking things to rate the games on. There are quite a few categories to pick from. You do not have to rate the games using all of these categories, though.

You're free to be as biased as you like and discussion of the AC game in question is highly encouraged.

It wasn't that amazing of a game looking back. But considering how it was one of the first games with "good" mecha customization it was really revolutionary. So it gets a 5/5 for launching a whole series.

Agreed with Aegis. 5/5 for beginning a great legacy. I actually played it, and it wasn't bad. So that gives me further incentive for the 5/5.

Even though I play LR the most nowadays, AC 1 has become even more fun for me than it was when I first played it. Probably how the majority of the North American gamer base probably did not look at the game, I was one of those who was unable to fully appreciate the game till a year or two after I owned it. And I was not able to beat Nineball till almost a decade after I owned it. It's not like I wasn't close, I kinda gave up too soon and was too delicate with it. The game really forced you to think like a supersoldier in order to beat it. Keep pushing forward and don't give up till your energy gauge is zero and your AC is a burning pile of metal. It is not only the game that established the AC series but it also established From Software as a video game developer.


Original giant Handgun that looks sort of like a shotgun is my favorite weapon in the series period I even beat Nineball with it haha!

since it was the first of all AC series so I'll not critique any thing about this except give the vote for 4/5.
