Description

It's time to drive the hated Smoke Jaguar Clan from Port Arthur once and for all! You take on the role of the commander of a lance of the First Davion Guards. Through a series of missions you must carefully plan your attacks, spend Resource Points wisely, and keep your people alive.

Mech Commander is a real-time strategy game that introduces eighteen different types of mechs, several types of vehicles, repair bays, artillery barrages, mine fields, forests that you can burn down, highly explosive containers, mechs that limp when their legs are damaged, missile and autocannon turrets, and other features.

During each mission, you can capture buildings to get weapons. You can also salvage enemy mechs if they aren't too badly damaged. You are awarded Resource Points which you can use to repair mechs and buy new mechs, weapons, and Mechwarriors. Your Mechwarriors will advance in different skills (gunnery, piloting, jumping, and sensors) as they use them in battle, They can also be injured or killed.

The opening movie features live-action acting.
