Even today the graphics are impressive - big, clean and supremely detailed sprites battle it out over gorgeously-realised terrain. The music is also of a high standard, and the sound effects are suitably punchy and loud. Controlling the mech takes some getting used to, but once you've got the hang of it you really do believe you're in charge of a massive, hulking death machine. Each limb of your robot is a different sprite and this permits some silky-smooth animation that has to be seen to be believed. NCS updated the formula on the Saturn with Assault Suit Leynos 2 but the SNES version remains the best of the three and is a game you really should look to buy as soon as possible.
There are alternate endings, optional secondary objectives and secret weapons to be found but, being a mech game, nimble movement isn't really a factor. You lumber about soaking up damage, shooting robotic foes and boosting to higher platforms. If you don't mind the sluggish pace - picture a cross between Metal Slug and Armored Core - there's still a pretty good game in here.
