The mecha in Armored Core games move like actual mobile suits you see in the
anime, fast and agile. The GMs you are stuck with in RFTA are pretty slow
by comparison, it's not hard to get your ass kicked by Goufs and Doms if
you get caught in one of those.

The coolest part about Armored Core games is that you get to keep the uber
mecha you slaved to build in the last game.
