SummaryChallenged the mighty MechWarrior 2 series for the giant robot sim crown.
The GoodOutstanding graphics for the day -- HERCs burst into flames, which looks *much* more impressive and realistic than the shattering polygons of other sims; solid control scheme; well-crafted campaign that lets the player make interesting decisions about what kinds of robots and weapons to use; nice attempt to spice things up with occasional air bombing missions.
The BadInstant Action mode is lame and repetitive, as it really just consists of three different (highly simplistic) "shoot'em-up" scenarios. The air missions can be jarring interruptions rather than pleasant diversions. Veteran mech pilots might find this game a little too easy.
