Overall, the Arcade Combat Edition of MechWarrior 2 is a good game, albeit not the PC version. That is to say, what it lacks in painstaking detail and strategic battle it makes up for with fast paced shoot-em-up action. Like Jurassic Park's transformation from page to screen, it's not as technical as the book, but the high-speed thrills justify the price of admission. MechWarrior 2 for the Saturn stands on its own.
All in all, Mechwarrior 2 is a good game, tradition notwithstanding. I would only recommend this game straight off the shelves to die-hard Mechwarrior fans. If you have a controller, and a little extra space on your computer, I'd recommend you try it there first (like you're going to buy this game twice. . .). If you're just merely interested, I'd recommend you rent it first.
All in all, if you can find it, and you're on the fence about buying it, get it. It's fun. It's one of the first of the Mech games to go platform. It's also not too bad. It's just not what we're used to getting these days. Me? I'm partial to Gundams, so these walking Pintos really don't impress me. However, the game is fun and worth a check.

Mechwarrior 2 has a lot of action and enough missions for 'Mech fans. However, if you have never enjoyed 'Mech games then you most likely won't find this one too entertaining either.
