MechWarrior 3050 is just the thing for Jungle Strike fans. And if you're looking for something more challenging that a droid sortie, the two-player mode will definitely singe your armor.
Total! (Germany)
Insgesamt ist „Mechwarrior 3050“ ein solides Actionspiel geworden. Zwar nimmt man es mit den offiziellen Battle-Tech-Regeln nicht gar zu genau, damit kann man jedoch leben. Weniger schön ist allerdings, daß der Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht einstellbar ist, was angesichts hammerharter Missionen durchaus zu leichten Frusterscheinungen führt. Mehr und dafür nicht schon in der Anfangsphase gar so knifflige Aufträge wie beim Vorgänger wären sicher nicht schlecht gewesen. Dennoch sollten hier nicht nur die BsttleTech-Fans unter Euch einen Blick riskieren.

Oh no! Another mech game! What this? It's got a two-player mode? And the graphics look kinda cool? And there's even some real tough missions? Wow! You know, this one might be worth a shot! Try this on a rental basis first! It's OK!

But even though you'll never see the end without cheating, you'll still enjoy 3050's gorgeous, fast-moving graphics and the sheer thrill of blowing stuff up with a big robot. The verdict: An excellent conversion of a very good Genny cart.

I may get dumped on for this, but I'm not into the whole Battle Tech thing. This game has very little luster for me. As a one-player game, you will get hit hard and fast to the point of frustration. The Two-player mode is a lot more playable. Overall, the game seems to have the options, weapons and mechs to appeal to fans of this genre, but as an outsider, I wasn't pulled into it's world. The controls and gameplay take a lot of patience to really reap any reward.

Man kann Mech-Spiele daran messen, wie gut sie eine Endzeit-Kampfkoloß-Atmosphäre schaffen - und hier versagt Mechwarrior 3050. Es spielt sich eher wie eines von EAs Hubschrauber- Spielen. Konnte man sich in Mechwarrior noch ganz gut in die Endzeit-Mech-Söldner-Rolle hineinversetzen, ist 3050 lediglich ein leicht überdurchschnittliches Action-Spiel ohne die richtige Atmosphäre. Außerdem läßt der größtenteils unfaire Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht gerade den Spielspaßquotienten explodieren.
