Armored Core 6 Reviews Roundup

Armored Core 6 reviews have been published online, demonstrating how the game persuaded reviewers to give FromSoftware's most recent effort very high scores (with few exceptions). This is undoubtedly not a fresh concept, since many people had already overstated the game's potential in previous trailers produced by the same software studio. In this Armored Core 6 reviews roundup article, we have chosen to include reviews from some of the top specialized sites in the industry in case you are still on the fence about purchasing the game.


Eurogamer – 10/10

“FromSoftware delivers a superlative action game that builds on its Soulslike pedigree while staying lean and laser-focused.” [Read full review] – Caelyn Ellis

Press Start – 9/10

“Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon manages to succesfully bring back and cultivate an experience reminiscent of the old games for newer audiences without losing sight of what made the previous games so good. While it's still relentlessly challenging and the story can be a bit drab, Fires of Rubicon is yet another success for FromSoftware with it's satisfying and fast paced combat.” [Read full review] – James Mitchell

GamingTrend – 9/10

“White-knuckle brilliant Soulslike action, coupled with a movement style not seen in this genre for an entire generation, resurrects a blast from the past in a whole new way. If you are a fan of the genre, this game is pure punishing fun with all that implies. If not, it's unlikely to convert you. In either case, Armored Core VI: Fires of the Rubicon is a brilliant title that breaks the mold on the genre in a whole new way.” [Read full review] – Ron Burke

We Got This Covered – 9/10

“Armored Core VI is like getting to put together your own giant Lego robot and sending it out to die before realizing you just needed to attach a few more missile launchers. Freedom in gameplay comes in many shapes and sizes, and the customization of your very own mechs suited to each mission is a niche yet thrilling experience. A thoughtful, intricately-woven story and amazing presentation sure don't hurt, either.” [Read full review] – David Morgan

GamesRadar+ – 9/10

“Armored Core 6 is FromSoftware like we've never seen it, back on its mech beat with renewed vigor after 10 years away. It's an exhilarating game that lives up to the promise of action that only mechs can deliver, and it's a refreshingly short and easily replayed experience that still manages heaps of depth.” [Read full review] – Austin Wood

Screen Rant – 9/10

“Armored Core 6 is one of the best mech games I've experienced in years, and it's one I expect to play through at least two more times. The story of Rubicon, and how your decisions as a mercenary shape it, is my favorite story in gaming this year, up to and including all the big releases that have come out so far.” [Read full interview] – Christopher Teuton

GamingBolt – 9/10

“Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is a wonderful return to form for a franchise that has been dormant for a very long time. Its unique mission structure that encourages experimentation, coupled with an insane level of customization is one of the game's major highlights, and while its story takes time to get started, no two missions ever really feel the same thanks to varied objectives and excellent encounter design.” [Read full review] – Shunal Doke

IGN – 8/10

“Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon’s stellar customization options feed into its excellent mecha combat, and the result is challenging combat puzzles that kept my attention all the way through its 15-hour campaign and beyond. It’s let down by a dull story, but lands direct hits where it counts.” [Read full review] – Mitchell Saltzmann

Push Square – 7/10

“Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon admirably weds satisfying combat with extensive mech customisation, with short missions letting you quickly experiment with new ideas and builds. However, once you've settled on an optimal loadout, it's those same quick-fire levels that begin to blunt the fun. The result is a game that can be just as enjoyable as it is frustrating. A littering of good boss fights and rock-solid performance on PS5 make it a worthwhile experience as a whole, but Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon won't go down as a classic in the same way other FromSoftware titles have for the past decade.” [Read full review] – Liam Croft

VG247 – 6/10

“Armored Core 6 is the essence of a soft reboot. It has the unenviable task of drawing newcomers to a niche, sometimes overly challenging series without changing too much of what made fans like it to begin with. The result is a mixed experience that, while it has some shining moments of brilliance, feels a bit loose and never plays to its strengths.” [Read full review] – Josh Broadwell
