Mechwarrior 2 catches your attention and holds it; crammed as it is with quality gameplay and lovingly implemented detail.
MechWarrior 2 is, without doubt, one of the finest titles on the PlayStation and is even better than the PC original — itself accepted as being one of the best titles to the format.

Mechwarrior 2 (MW2) is a descendant of FASA's incredibly popular Battletech board game series. Battletech fanatics were thrilled when the board game made its way to the PC. A series of PC games followed and the rest is history. Finally and thankfully MW2 has made its way to the PlayStation. So how does the PSX version stack up against the PC version? Read on and you will be pleasantly surprised.

משחק רובוטים מעולה. אני ממליץ לכל חובבי הסגנון ולכל בעלי הפליסטיישן שמחפשים אקשן עם אסטרטגיה

Despite some of the drawbacks, I still had the hardest time drawing myself away from the TV and the Playstation when I first played this game. The excitement is definitely there, and combined with the awesome sound effects and graphics, Mech Warrior 2 provides hours of in-your-face, heads-up action. For newcomers, it is definitely a must play. For those who have already played the PC version, I would still recommend it for the 16 new missions, and for that unbeatable feeling of turning your opponent into nothing more than vapor and scraps.
Mega Fun (Apr, 1997)
Mit Mechwarrior 2 bringt Activision eine sehr realistische Kampfrobotersimulation auf den 32-Bit-Markt. Alle Komponenten, wie z.B. Waffenwahl, Erhitzung, Terrainausnutzung bzw. -einberechnung und die Möglichkeit, den Torso bis zu 90-Grad zu drehen, sorgen für ein sehr realistisches 3D-Mechgefecht, Die Spieltiefe wird noch weiter gesteigert, indem die Gegner in herrlichen Explosionen das Zeitliche segnen oder bei gezieltem Beschuß einen Arm oder ein Bein verlieren. Die ganze Kampforgie wird neben fetzigen Gitarrenriffs, auch noch durch guten Sound, wie z.B. Mechgestampfe und Laserfeuer und einer deutlichen Computerstimme die vor Gefahren warnt, untermalt. Dennoch fallen einige Kritikpunkte ins Auge. Das nur aus Text bestehende Missionbriefing hätte man nach heutigen Maßstäben besser machen können. Auch die Grafik ist eher auf dem Stand von vor einem Jahr: bietet zwar gut aussehende Mechs, die Landschaften sind mir allerdings etwas zu nackt und kahl gestaltet worden (Hügel und Gebäude).
IGN (Apr 08, 1997)
MechWarrior 2 is a satisfying combat sim that has been translated well to the PlayStation format. Chalk another one up for Activision.
Looks fine, sounds great and once you master the controls it plays well too. My only wish is that they hadn't left out so much of the strategy element to the game when converting it from the P.C because as a pure shoot-em-up, it doesn't quite reach the "Classic" status. Having said that, it looks and moves better than the other previous versions so I guess we cant really complain.
Edge (May, 1997)
Trying to take a super-complex, big robot combat-cum-strategy game and turn it into something vaguely playable on Sony's console isn't easy. And yet, amazingly, Activision has not only managed it with Mechwarrior 2, but it's managed to pull it off with great aplomb. The result is one of the best PC conversions yet seen on Sony's machine.

Zusammen mit der aufpeitschenden Musik und der flotten 3D-Grafik hinterläßt auch das actionbetontere PS-Mechwarrior einen äußerst schmucken Eindruck. Da muß man sich Schritt für Schritt nach vorne schleichen und vorsichtig agieren, sonst haut einen die gegnerische Blecharmee gleich in die Pfanne. Begeisterte Anhänger schwerer Roboter-Jungs, werden an dieser wilden FASA-Ballerei ihren Heidenspaß haben.
