Armored Core Verdict Day for Xbpx 360 and PlayStation 3 at GAME

Welcome to the game that makes the likes of Dark Souls look like a walk in the park; no, make that a creche. Yes, Armored Core is back with Verdict Day for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and is as brutal as ever.

Officially made from girders (honest), the Armored Core franchise is actually from the same chaps who created the aforementioned Dark Souls (the game that gives even the most stubborn of gamers waking nightmares). A third-person shooter, the series has been bewitching mech fans since 1997 with its tough-as-nails gameplay and battlefield exploits set in a dystopian future where rival factions beat each other up via towering mechs, stamping, shooting and blowing each other up into tiny pieces. This is not Candy Crush, 'kay?

And this latest instalment is bristling with ever more gun power, hardware and big, bloody (and highly customisable) robots. You can unleash your mechanised meathead on some 60 story missions, building up a fearsome AC complete with shields, sniper cannons and over 100 new parts to geek/Robot Wars out on.

For those of us who were hooked on Armored Core V's action, your top-specced merchant of death can also be imported directly into Verdict Day - imagine swapping R2-D2 for ED-209 and you get the idea. But expect to have your armour-plated butt handed to you on plate when you unlock the new Hardcore Mode and its 10 variations of instadeath that will test the metal fatigue of even the hardiest of warmongers.

Armored Core Verdict Day for Xbpx 360 and PlayStation 3 at GAME

Armored Core's kingpin though has always been its multiplayer and there have been some big changes. One of the criticisms levelled at the AC series has been the lack of fellow players to team up with (or fight against) when online - thankfully though, region-specific servers have been crushed and replaced with a new World Mode that lets people from different continents play together as one of three Factions who must take over all of a rival's 56 bases in a single 'season'. And if you happen not to have other players to hand, you can always bring your customised AI-controlled mech squad along for the ride instead.

While newbies can expect a steep learning curve to clamber up, once you're blazing death down on your rivals, you'll understand just why the AC series has such a dedicated following. And Verdict Day continues to pummel, shape and hone the series' hardcore gameplay, showing that the franchise has every chance of being round in another 16 years time...
