As expected, on August 23, the review aggregator sites Metacritic and OpenCritic flooded the reviews of the campaign about Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon combat robots from Bandai Namco and developers FromSoftware (Dark Souls, Elden Ring series).
Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon has 80 reviews on Metacritic: the version for PS5 accounted for 47 materials (88%), personal computer – 26 (87%), and Xbox Series X and S – seven (78%). At opencritic The picture is similar: 39 ratings and 86%.
For comparison: The average rating of none of the previous Armored Cores metacritical didn’t even break the 80 percent mark, making Fires of Rubicon the highest-rated game in the series by default.
Reviewers praise the dynamic combat system with a wide range of options to customize your robot and responsive controls, memorable bosses, great graphics and consistent performance.
The disadvantages of the project were not always an appropriate balance of complexity, not the most outstanding plot (although some authors liked it), the structure of the missions, in some places an uncomfortable camera and a faded environment.
Critics agree that Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is a great action game and by far the best game in the series. “The beginning of an exciting new era for the series”summarized in Simple allies.
Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon will be released on August 25th on PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. Last week the developers announced the final system requirements for the game with and without ray tracing.
