Armored Core 2


This was the first PlayStation 2 outing for the series. Set on a partially terraformed Mars a hundred years after the events of Master of Arena, the technology in the Armored Core world had moved on quite considerably.

New hardpoints, "overboost" cores, anti-grav legs and a whole new heat system were included in the game. However, Armored Core 2 was rushed for release and it suffered from severe framerate and slowdown issues.
