Good game. Very technical and somewhat difficult combat but fun in its own way

Challenging. Tough but fair. FUN!

This game has been fun to play, the more i play the more i like it. It is challenging, a test of your tactics, and your squad control. It does have a bit of a slow start to it. Don't expect to jump into anything more then a medium mech for a time., but once you get your reputation up then get ready to have even more fun.

Good but tricksie multiplayer

Lots of fun with mods. My 8 year old plays in my campaign. Multiplayer is a bit 'eh?' because only the hosts game advances. So it works really well if the other plays just want to "drop in." Scratches that giant robit punching giant robit itch.

Great nostalgic jump back into the cockpit. The game is visually impressive and has the same great variety of weapons and missions. Has a more immersive feel compared to console mech games.
