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.

There is no other mech game out right now that can touch this one. For pure action-packed fun, you can do no better. I don't know...maybe it's just me but there is something about climbing on board and strapping myself into an 80 ton behemoth and causing mass destruction that just appeals to me...It's Go Time!

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.

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.
