SummaryAn all time classic -- a game that was ahead of its time.
The GoodThis game was great. For its time, the 3D graphics were the best around and the gameplay was cruely addictive. If I can point out a single reason that I only lasted a year in college, it would be this game. I ran Mechwarrior on my 286, and the frame rate was great. Between levels I could upgrage my mechs and salvage equipment from my weak opponents that I obliterated, only to build a bigger better mech to destroy all who dared to challange me.
The BadThere's not a lot to dislike about this game. The sound effects were a bit weak and could have been better. Then again, there weren't many options for digitized sound in 1989.
