[color=blue][size=3][font=stylus]I've been a fan of mech games for a long time, and i think i just found my favorite. Amored Core3: Silent Line is a killer game and deserves some props. Its a good mix of difficulty with realistic mech gaming. I haven't been paying attention to the story that much, but my friend who beat it said it was decent. I really should go back and play Armored Core2 and Another Age. Any thoughts?[/color][/font][/size]

....I think Armor Core is hard...Even if I just build a good AC.....I still can't beat it....It is like they did it to make me mad!!!!

*Turns into gaint green thingie*

They are pretty good games....But I think I thank god that they stopped the whole [spoiler]some unknown thing is evil and trying to take back its land[/spoiler] kindda thing.But is was a let down when I coulden't use my ACs when I spent sooo much time making them,in Armor Core:3 U.U

Will,after I buy all the Chobits manga,and have some money left,this is on my list ^_^

[color=green]No doubt about it, Armored Core is hard. I think its an improvement over games like Mobile Suit Gundam and Robotech. Those were great ideas, but sad dissapointments. AC3: Silent Line is worth renting at least. As long as you make money in the arena, you can kick a**. I couldn't get past the second mission in AC2, but with Silent Line i'm almost done with the game.

To all: Has anyone played the original AC. Whats it like?[/color]

I own AC2:AA and I enjoy it a lot. Getting the extra parts that are hidden in the levels tends to be a pain, especially the "mobile decoy" part.

I have played AC2 and AC3 too, but do not like them as much as AC2:AA. The good thing about AC2/3 is that they have the Arena mode, which is fun to practice with. And I do like the "External Orbits" style of torso in AC3. The EO style proves useful against other humans.

I've had it for a while now and haven't even made it off the first stage yet. This game is very difficult the graphics are glitchy and freeze sometimes(or maybe it's my disce). I hate heavy mech games but for this I''l make and exception; it pretty good.

[color=green]for Silent Line, and i think all AC games, the best way to advance is to build money from the arena before you start a series of missions. In SL, i had a mech with a hover bottom, missle pod arms, vertical missles on back, and extra missle launchers for an extra. I was able to waste every AC from E rank up to C with just that design. plus, i got 300,000+ credits, and a bunch of spare reward parts(i sold those for even more creds). Now, i'm workin on missions, and i can afford any part i want. God, now i feel like playing...[/color]

I've only played the first 2 ACs, but they were pretty fun. The control took some getting used to though, I tried playing again after a few months of it gathering dust and it was freakishly hard for me to do simple stuff like boost and strafe and turn at the same time or something. Anywhoo I preferred a fast humanoid legged mech w/ a sniper rifle and lots of missles on the back for power. I pretty much went through everyone in the arena by shooting them from a distance while peeking out from behind a pillar hehe. I liked being able to sell parts for the same price you buy them for as well (in AC2 at least), lets you experiment with any combination. Too bad I suck at paint-type programs tho, would've been cool to make my own emblem.

I just bought AC3: Silent Line yesterday, and I really, really like it.
I love the many new parts available, as well as the missions and music, and the new storyline is cool, if a little hard to understand.
I've played every PS2 AC game out there, and have completed them all.
I agree with quietstranger16 on the fact that Arena is the best way to go when you're starting any AC game. Usually, you make a bit of money with your fist few victories, but you also get parts which you can sell for more money, or equip on your AC.
Silent Line is definetely the hardest AC game out there, with AC2: AA in second and AC2 in third. AC3 got a little too easy for my taste.
In any case, I have not played any of the PSX AC games, but I have a friend who has. In AC2: AA, you'll notice that [spoiler]the last few enemies you fight in Lost Field are considered unknowns, but they are actually AC's from the PSX games. The first one is Stinger from AC1: Project Phantasma, the second is Phantasma from the same game, and the third is Nine-Ball from AC1: Master of Arena.[/spoiler] I am not sure if the PSX AC games are avaliable here, but that is the info I got from my friend.
Oh, and as for my favorite AC of all time, check out my banner. I made it using an image from my PS2. it was a heavy biped with two grenade launchers and a chain gun, complete with OP-INTENSIFY (AC3).

Well, yes you can transfer AC3 data to AC SL, and you can basically transfer everything...
It makes the game much easier at the start if you got OP-INTENSIFY with some of the better functions. Also, you start out with your 3 AC's from AC 3, and all your money and pilot name. However, be prepared to take your old AC's where they have never gone before, so to speak. There are so many new parts around that you should definetely change your AC designs after you play the game. Even if you think that you like your AC's the way they are, you should change them.
If you want to know how to get OP-INTENSIFY powers, let me know, also, if you want any combat or mission info, as well as reccomendations, you can ask me too.

AC is my life, just look at my banner and avi.
