Summary

Better, but not enough

The Good

This is pretty much a re-tread on the earlier MechWarrior game design-wise, with some upgrading of the universe and a mojor graphics overhaul. All the joys of the earlier games are here as well. Multi-player action is a welcome addition, but really only if you are on a LAN.

The Bad

Of course, many of the same flaws of the earlier design still remain, such as the ability to instantly destroy an enemy by aiming a PPC at his head and firing (the same can happen to you, making it even less fun).

The Bottom Line

Another game lots of people love, but I was not enamored with. I prefer MechWarrior 3.
