Overall: well being a Battletech junkie i asked...hurm... begged for this game for Christmas. Big mistake, it has almost nothing to do with battletech other then the name and basic concept. It was a game that had a an excellent back round universe to draw from but the designers decide to flush all the old concepts down the drain. good for some but any battle tech fan this game is a tremendous disappointment

Gameplay: Dummy style controls that any wannabe mech pilot can master are one of the biggest mistakes, horrible weapons selection, all the weapons have homing which completely destroys the game play. all you have to do it point the big reticule at the enemy (its like 1/4 of your screen) and its almost always hits. the total abandonment of tried and true battletech game mechanics destroys the challenge and realism of the classic battletech game. and one of the biggest mistakes of all... all the mechs can do complete 180s with there torso... even the battle armor suits (must be a really stretchy guy to totally twist around the hips over and over).

Graphics: despite the total lacking of game play and story line, it is a very visually pleasing game. the destructibility of every building, and the varying levels of damage to almost every thing in the game is a far cry from being just another mech game of the past. everything looks shiny and real. this is one thing the programmers didn't mess up

Audio: nothing spectacular.. annoying voices with phony emotional distress at everything, basic gun sounds, and the classic thumping of a big mech walking could be worse.. but its satisfactory enough.

Suggestions: dear god! Read a battle tech novel! actually read a few... you can't just go around making up your own little battletech universe just because you can't be bothered to do the research or make a game that fits in. Also play a few oh the old school games like mech2 and mech3.. they have the real deal game play ...oh then read another battle tech book.... maybe you will come up with something that actually fits into the battle tech universe.

Overall Score: 6.0 / 10
