If you liked Mechwarrior 2 then this game is a must buy! Just playing with the new mechs, weapons, and environments is lots of fun and unlike many expansion packs, this is a full game with lots of missions to play! Once again, Mechwarrior 2 earns a 5 star rating.

If you've finished MW2 and feel you need a new challenge with all the elements that made Mech2 such a success, don't hesitate to run out (really fast) and get this product. With titles like Earthworm Jim and Pitfall 95 for Win95, it looks like Activision is taking back the market in a big way. It doesn't look like theres any slowing them down either. In '96, we can look forward to titles like Muppet Treasure Island with Tim Curry and Kermit the Frog, and Elk Moon Murders with Amanda Donohoe (LA Law, The Madness of King George).

Im ganzen ist The Ghost Bear's Legacy ein neuer und interessanter Aspekt des MechWarrior-Universums. Es bietet genug neues Material, um den Kauf zu rechtfertigen, und könnte von der Größe her sogar ein eigenständiges Spiel sein.

MECHWARRIOR FANS REJOICE!!! Ghost Bear's legacy is here and ready for action. For those of you who enjoyed playing MechWarrior II, and simply couldn't get enough, the expansion pack is what you've been waiting for. It offers twelve new missions to play, and some very interesting improvements in the game itself.

Ghost Bear's Legacy als Mission-Disk zu bezeichnen, käme fast schon einer Kränkung gleich. Das ganze Programm wirkt wie aus einem Guß und könnte als eigenständiges Spiel durchgehen: Selbst die CD-Audiotracks, die Euer martialisches Handwerk stimmungsvoll begleiten, wurden komplett neu komponiert. Neben den neuen Mechtypen und Waffensystemen sorgen die Zwischensequenzen und nicht zuletzt der verbesserte Campaignmodus für anhaltende Motivation. Zwar wurde der Schwierigkeitsgrad der Missionen merklich hochgeschraubt, ohne den Spieler jedoch jemals in unfaire oder gar ausweglose Situationen zu bringen: Mit der richtigen strategischen Planung sind sämtliche Einsätze auch von Battletech-Novizen zu meistern. Werft also Euren Fusionsreaktor an und stapft zu Eurem örtlichen Softwaredealer: Battletechfreunde kommen um den Geisterbären nicht herum.

Other than this technical nit-picking, my only other concern is one of length. The game contains the same combat simulator/instant action as the original, but I'm afraid rabid MechWarriors will exhaust the single career track rather quickly. Those hoping for a scenario-builder or the much-promised network package will have to keep waiting. This being said, GHOST BEAR'S LEGACY is still a damn good expansion package, one that actually fleshes out the Battletech universe for computer gamers, rather than just delivering “more of the same.” The Bear's bellowing roar is worthy to take its place with the Falcon's angry cry and the Wolf's noble howl.

Inte mycket nytt, men lika välgjort som i originalet, så omättliga Mech-krigare kan fröjdas.

The only gripes I have about Ghost Bear's Legacy are the graphics and mission difficulties. The graphics are wonderful, however, I have a 486 DX4-100 with 12 megs of ram, and it is still kind of jerky at times, even on the lowest resolution. This makes those with really kickin' systems the only ones who can really get this game to move like it should, which is kind of a shame, because Mechwarrior 2 was taxing enough. In addition, there are a few missions which are just next to impossible to finish. There should always be some hard missions, but there are one or two that take it to an extreme, and get extraordinarily frustrating. But, other than those, I found all of the rest of the missions to be fun, exciting and very playable.

Ghost Bear's Legacy is a must-have for all proud MW2 owners. Its street price is around $25-30, and for what it delivers it's a steal. The more I play it, the more I see it as the other half of MW2 that I always wanted. I strongly feel that there hasn't been an expansion or add-on pack as worthwhile as GBL since the Marine Fighters add-on for USNF. Like MF, it is more of a game in itself than just an expansion pack. The only downside to GBL is the minor problem with the Diamond 2001 PCI video card (ARK2000 chipset) and running GBL in WIN95, plus you cannot use ANY of the GBL mechs in WIN95s NETMECH.If you've finished MW2 and feel you need a new challenge with all the elements that made Mech2 such a success, don't hesitate to run out (really fast) and get this product.

Ghost Bear Legacy is a good package, not a great one. There are only twelve missions, and gamers would have benefited greatly from a mission editor. Still, it proves there's some kick left in the old Mech 2, and if you finished the original missions you'll probably want to check it out.

Mech-Fans dürfen zwar bedenkenlos zugreifen, Einsteiger sind mit dem etwas besser bewerteten Hauptprogramm ohne Erweiterung besser bedient.

Ghost's Bear Legacy je věc rozhodně zajímavá. Jestli máte hodně peněz, tak si ji určitě kupte. Stojí to za to. Alespoň na chvíli se vám vráti bojová atmosféra, kterou jste nejspíš prožívali s Mechwarriorem 2. Ale těm ostatním nevím co poradit, protože se vráti opravdu jen na chvíli. Misí opravdu moc není a na dlouho nevydrží. Budete se muset rozhodnout sami. Stejně jako vždy, ne? Svět není (a podle ACTIVISIONU asi ani nebude) nijak jednoduchý....

Jestli přicházíte do světa Mechwarrior 2 poprvé, kupujte hru i s datadiskem. Pokud už máte první dvě tažení za sebou, tohle vás o mnoho neobohatí, pokud nejste skutečný "Mechmaniak".

Go get the DOS version of Ghost Bear's Legacy! Activision claims this is the Pentium Processor Editon for Win95. I didn't see a damn thing that made playing this version better than the DOS version on a Pentium. We played the DOS version on Pentiums then. Today we are playing Ghost Bear on those same machines, and it is less enjoyable because of the lack of support under Win95 for a bunch of devices that worked fine with the DOS version. Don't take this scathing review as a criticism of the game. It is marvelous, and no one here can say a damn bad thing about it, but I just don't see any reason whatsoever to purchase this version instead of the DOS version when this version is inferior. I highly recommend you read our full review of the DOS version of GBL which we did last year. It will give you an idea of just what the game is all about. We really can't knock the game, but its Win95 interface sours the experience.
