The awkwardly-named Armored Core: for Answer has just received the demo treatment on the Japanese PlayStation Store.
Clocking in at a modest 517 MB, the demo should provide the answer to our question - is this new iteration in the series a significant upgrade from the letdown that was Armored Core 4? According to our forum members, it's not, citing horrid controls and a poor framerate as reasons to the contrary.
Regardless, the demo is up and doesn't cost a cent, so feel free to make your own decision. Do you agree or disagree with our community? Let us know below.
