8 spoons out of 10 springrolls

A pretty solid stompy stompy Mech game, much like the Mechwarrior games of old. On sale it's a steal, even with the small annoyances. Interface oddities, pathing issues, bone stupid AI pilots... but still an enjoyable PPC-throwing time.

If you like mwo you will like this

Good if your a mwo enjoyer. Pretty much the exact same thing with better graphics and a star map campaign that's an excuse for the typical mwo missions

May not be the classic MW4 I played as I child, but still feels nice to play with my old MW4 clan. Good game to turn your brain off and play with a few friends, throw some mods on and you can make it a greater game. Worth every penny.

The game is broken looks like crap play's like crap co-op is unplayable. I have a i9 9900k RTX 3080 32gb ram so it does not make any sense why it's so unplayable.

The funniest game! However, I don't understand the content until after I land on the battlefield. For example, a briefing would increase realism. It would be more fun if we could give detailed instructions to our allies. ・Priority attack on MecH ・Priority attack on facilities ・Save bullets etc...

Great game, but struggles in VR

Chris P
Verified purchase
The game itself is pretty good - it gets a bit monotonous, but I've still dumped a pile of hours into it. I bought it thinking that it would be a pretty sweet VR game, but it's community modded and isn't the smoothest on the Quest 2. The jittery screen may just need more tweaking, but it's borderline unplayable in VR. The graphics and gameplay on the PC are smooth and it feels like a mech game should. All in all, a good buy if you're a fan of the series.

Love this Mech Game

Paladine737
Verified purchase
I am a mech fan but this is now my favorite game period which is saying a lot as I own over 1000 games. They have continued to make improvements to the base game and the DLC has added value. The mods can adjust things to meet other demands. Is great for someone who is just casual or someone who wants to go deep. Very satisfying destruction. :) I have played this a about 600 hours.

Mech combat is front and centre and it doesn't put a large metal foot wrong in this regard. Combat is weighty and mechanical with methodical placement of fire and positioning proving more important twitch reactions. Paying the bills and scavenging the resources for your merc lance provides an entertaining aside. Outside of combat the game can feel a little shallow but it does just enough to keep you invested in the progression of your merc outfit. It would have been nice if there was more to your recruits than some slowly inproving stats. A way of developing relationships between lance members, with growing rivalries and comradeship might have made me care more when one of them kicks the bucket, but this is a minor criticism. Stompy mech combat has never been so much fun.
