The original Armored Core (published by SCEA) took the successful Virtual On mech combat formula to new levels with mission-based stages and completely customizable mechs. ASCII has since picked up the rights to the sequel, Armored Core: Project Phantasma.
Don't get too excited though. Project Phantasma isn't offering a whole lot new. AC: PP uses the exact same engine, so it doesn't really look or play differently from the original. But what it does offer are new missions, a new ladder-style one-on-one deathmatch mode (vs. the computer), and new weapons and items.
Everything else stays the same: The game involves playing through a series of progressively harder missions (17 in all), earning cash along the way. With this cash, you can repair your mech or attach more powerful weapons and special items (like bigger engines or radar jammers). AC: PP will also keep the Two-player Split-screen Deathmatch Mode.
AC: PP will let you load up your mech from the first Armored Core, which should make this very challenging game a bit easier.
